Musical comedian “Weird Al” Yankovic will be bringing his Mandatory World Tour to Central Florida for three shows in Orlando, Melbourne, and Clearwater in August.
“Weird Al” Yankovic started out as a shy accordian-playing teenager sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show. Now in his fourth decade of performing he has another hit album to his credit, 2014’s Mandatory Fun, which is the first comedy album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and it nabbed him the Best Comedy Album Grammy.
In between, he’s become the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history with over 12 million album sales. He has also earned four Grammy Awards and a career’s worth of accolades for classics like “Eat It,” “Like a Surgeon,” “Fat,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” “White and Nerdy,” and “The Saga Begins.”
He’s also appeared on screens big and small in movies like 1989’s UHF, and his late 90’s CBS Saturday morning series “The Weird Al Show,” as well as written two New York Times bestselling children’s books (When I Grow Up; My New Teacher and Me!).
Whew! He’s a busy guy. And he’s about to get busier with this new tour for his Mandatory Fun album that will bring him to Orlando, Clearwater, and Melbourne for three shows in August.
