“Weird Al” Yankovic is the best-selling comedy recording artist in history, earning four Grammys and 15 career nominations. He is best known for his hilariously irreverent parodies of hit songs by the biggest stars in the musical universe over the past three decades, including “Eat It,” “Like A Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” “White & Nerdy” and “Tacky.”
The tour follows Yankovic’s Grammy-winning Mandatory Fun, which was the first comedy album in over 50 years to hit No. 1 on theBillboard charts and the first comedy album in history to debut at the top spot.
According to Al: “I’ve decided to do the Mandatory World Tour for one more year, after learning that some people didn’t make it out to the show this last time around. Apparently, they don’t know the meaning of the word ‘mandatory’!!”
