Tasty News: Get WEIRD this Hump Day
I mean get all the Weird Al information you could ever desire this fine Wednesday. First off, the dates for Weird Al‘s next world tour were announced and he’s gonna be one tired parody king. The Mandatory World Tour will kick off in Las Vegas May 12 and travel to far off places like the UK, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Impressive! The pre-sale beings Tuesday, January 27th. Woohoo!
Coming in February SF Sketchfest will pay tribute to the great Weird Al with a special evening of comedy and music, featuring an interview with Al and Chris Hardwick, as well as appearances by Hard ‘n Phirm, Jonah Ray, and Garfunkel and Oates. Looks like tickets are still available, kids. Blink.
If you didn’t already know, Weird Al‘s last album, Mandatory Fun, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album. Soooo be sure to watch that musical event Feb.8 8/7C on CBS.
Finally, I don’t know if you’ve been watching Galavant (you should be, musical comedy nerd) but our dear thespian made an appearance on Monday night’s episode and it was as wonderful as I could imagine. He sports a monk gear quite well. Watch the live version of We’re The Monks that debuted at the Galavant Showcase and be thoroughly engaged. The next/final episode of Galavant happens Monday, January 26 on ABC.
Mentions: That is all for now, friends.
