Drew Carey says that Phish at the Sphere was orgasmic!

Drew Carey went to see Phish for the first time this weekend, and he saw them at the Sphere in Vegas. You know, that concert venue which has mind-blowing visuals all over its walls as the musicians are performing?

The Price Is Right host enjoyed it so much he wrote in a tweet it was like a religious experience. He could’ve left it there, and we all understood what he meant.

However… Yesterday, he was on @fter Midnight and Taylor Tomlinson made a huge mistake. She asked him, “If you weren’t being filmed right now, what would you say?”

With that, he walked in front of the podium to the center of the stage and described what it was like to experience his new favorite band.

“So, I saw Phish at the Sphere this weekend, Never saw Phish, didn’t know a Phish tune, and they fucking blew my mind off so hard.

“I had a bunch of girls with me, and I thought to myself, is this what it’s like to [he was bleeped].

“People there can verify. This is 100% true. This is what it was like. It was like being edged for four days straight. And then right before the face-melting climax at the end of the fourth day, an angel comes down from heaven, Gabriel, and he shoots fucking heroin in your arm, and he says, ‘Good luck now, Mother Fucker!’ And he leaves, and you have an orgasm for 15 minutes while your eyeballs fall out of your head!

“Next time, they play the Sphere. You better not miss it.”

And with that, Sphere’s booking people called Phish’s managers and are trying to book them for another residency. And when they do, I will break my “I will never go back to Las Vegas rule” to see them.

Seriously, that is the best review that anyone can ask for.

Now, back to @fter Midnight. The rest of the show was Thomas Lennon and Weird Al Yankovic making jokes about Phish at the Sphere, and it was beautiful.

Tomlinson should’ve said to the Whose Line Is It Anyway, “Whose show is it anyway? Your show airs 12 hours earlier on this network. This is my show. Mother Fucker!”

And Drew had another brilliant moment in the episode, unrelated to Phish. Tomlinson asked Carey, “Which one of your projects embarrasses you the most?” Without hesitation, he told her, “This one!”

Hey Weird Al Yankovic! You won an Emmy, how will you celebrate?
January 7th, 2024 under Emmys, Weird Al Yankovic. [ Comments: none ]

Weird Al Yankovic’s life story is so outlandish that Roku turned it into a biopic. Weird: The AL Yankovic Story is so amazing that it won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Movie yesterday.

So, how did Yankovic celebrate? Did he go to a high-priced fancy restaurant? Nope! He went to In-N-Out, where you can get a fancy burger for a reasonable price!

And that is the perfect way to celebrate being halfway to being an EGOT winner. That, and it is so Weird Al. The man whose story is so ridiculous, it’s hard to believe it is all true.

Huey Lewis risked his life to film a sketch with Weird Al Yankovic

Nine years ago, Weird Al Yankovic and Huey Lewis did a bit for Funny and Die parodying American Psycho, and the lead singer of Huey Lewis and the News almost died doing it.

Today Lewis revealed that he was willing to die (literally) to work with Weird Al, “@alyankovic: I was scheduled to have gall bladder surgery on the day of the shoot, but I postponed it because I really wanted to do the video! So my main concern was hoping that my gall bladder wasn’t going to explode in the middle of a take.”

Thankfully that didn’t happen. But if it did, what a way to go.

Would Weird Al Yankovic record a Prince parody now that he’s dead?

Most musicians would love to have Weird Al Yankovic parody their songs. But Prince was not one of them.

The singer tells Drew Barrymore on her show tomorrow, “He [Prince] just was very protective of his music and I can understand that but it was a bummer for me because I had what I thought were a lot of pretty good ideas.”

Some of the ideas he had were to give his unique take on When Doves Cry and 1999. But they were never meant to be.

Now that Prince is no longer with us, would Weird Al ask his estate if he could go crazy with the TAFKAP’s songs? Yankovic said, “I don’t want to do that because I’ve always respected the artists’ wishes, and Prince made his wishes pretty clear, so I still respect that.”

And that is why artists feel comfortable with Weird Al parodying his songs. Who doesn’t like him? Everyone loves him! Well, there is that one person we learned about in his biopic Weird: The Al Yankovic. Spoiler alert…

Weird Al Yankovic has been making the press rounds to promote his biopic Weird: The Al Yankovic Story which is streaming on Roku Channel for free as you read this.

One of the places he took his bus to was The Tonight Show, and Jimmy Fallon wanted to do something fun with him. Therefore, he asked the singer if he would like to perform a medley of his greatest hits with The Roots while only using classroom instruments. And without hesitation, he said, “Sure,” in his special drawn-out way.

So, they went into a little room and sang Another One Rides the Bus, White & Nerdy, I Want a New Duck, Eat It, Fat, I Love Rocky Road, My Bologna, and Yoda.

And the world is suddenly a better place. So, tonight, as the election results come in, listen to this instead. Things won’t seem as bad! That is the power of Weird Al and his accordion.

BTW I want Fallon’s shirt. Does anyone know where I can get it? Thanks!
