Weird Al Yankovic has a huge, fanatical fan base for good reasons. He’s a 5-time Grammy winner and member of a rare group of musicians (U2, Michael Jackson, Madonna Kenny G,) with a top 40 hit for four decades running. Self-proclaimed “Weird Al obsessive” Lin Manuel Miranda credits Al as an inspiration for the hit musical “Hamilton.” It began when a door to door accordion salesman called on Al at the tender age of six. Al was unaffectionately nicknamed “Weird” in school, yet he embraced his weirdness and earned millions of fans. And did Al’s mom really serve him a bowl of sauerkraut every morning and watch him on the school playground through a pair of binoculars? Discover a fascinating side of Weird Al as we celebrate the release of his new sort-of biopic, “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.”
