As a singer, songwriter, parodist, satirist, actor, producer, director and author, Weird Al wears many hats, literally. His parody and satire videos, bringing colorful humor to pop culture and the work of others, feature Weird Al in wigs and costumes as he introduces to fans countless hilarious characters. Just a few of his videos boast the titles “Amish Paradise,” a parody of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise,” “Tacky,” a parody of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” and “Fat,” a parody of Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” and the follow up of “Eat It,” a parody of Jackson’s “Beat It.” Since first airing in 1976, Weird Al has sold more than 12 million albums, recorded more than 150 parody and original songs, performed more than 1,000 live shows and has been awarded four Grammy Awards. On Tuesday, May 19, he will stop at Tulsa’s Brady Theater on his The Mandatory World Tour. Tickets range from $29.50 to $69.50. For more information, visit www.bradytheater.com.
