Weird: The Story of Al Yankovic is the most-anticipated film of the year. And today, we found out when it will debut on The Roku Channel. That date is November 4th. So mark your calendars because you don’t want to miss it.

I expect the telemovie to sweep the Emmys with Daniel Radcliffe walking away with Best Actor as the man himself. It would be a travesty if he and the movie did not win.

Oh, and The Roku Channel is the new UHF! Get it?

Quinta Brunson is having quite the 2022! First, her ABC show Abbott Elementary is a huge hit! So much so, she and the sitcom got Emmy nominations.

If that is not enough amazing news for the actress, here is even more. And this is her biggest accomplishment to date! Brunson will be playing Oprah Winfrey in Roku’s Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

Do you know how many actors and actresses would do anything to play Lady O? And Brunson is actually doing it? What is left for her? I know, continue to make us laugh!

Weird Al Yankovic is on tour, and like many touring musicians, he tested positive for coronavirus.

“So… I’ve got COVID. Don’t worry, I’m fine – I’m vaxxed and double-boosted and the symptoms are very mild,” the singer wrote. “But of course this means I unfortunately need to cancel the next couple dates on my tour (Saginaw & Detroit). I’m deeply sorry – we will reschedule those shows ASAP.”

Hopefully, he will be better soon because my friends have tickets to his shows, and it is all about my friends.


The Weird: The Al Yankovic Story trailer is magnificient

Roku released the first trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story with Daniel Radcliffe in the title role.

All I will say is that Harry Potter worked his magic, both literally and figuratively, because that is brilliant. It reminds me of Weird Al’s music video, I Lost on Jeopardy.

Radcliffe was born to play this role, and he deserves all the accolades he is going to get for it.

When it comes to the biopic, I can’t wait to see what new things we learn about the most famous accordion player in the World!

The Movie of the Week is coming to The Roku Channel later this year. It is not the only thing coming to channel this year. To see what else will be streaming there for free, then click here!


Do you want Weird Al Yankovic to sing Happy Birthday to You to you?
March 22nd, 2022 under Weird Al Yankovic. [ Comments: none ]

Weird Al Yankovic is having a busy 2022. He is going back on the road, he just finished working on a biopic that is going to air on Roku, and yet he still had time to do something for us.

The Shlock Rocker teamed up with American Greetings for a Smash Up birthday greeting card. All you have to do is find your name or your loved one’s name and how old they are going to be. Once you have that, you can preview the special way Weird Al sings Happy Birthday.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Mildred and Patty, the Hill sisters… and it was an honor to perform one of their all-time biggest hits – ‘Happy Birthday to You’ – especially now that it’s public domain,” joked Yankovic. “Plus I got to write and perform my OWN original birthday song for this project as well, which was a lot of fun. I remember when my friend Donny Osmond personally sent me his SmashUp a couple years ago – it completely blew my mind, and I knew right then that I wanted to do my OWN SmashUp, so that I could blow people’s minds too!”

This is the type of gift you can give anyone, including today’s birthday boy William Shatner. I mean, because what do you get a 91-year-old who has been to Space? You get him a Weird Al singing birthday telegram.

On that note, my birthday is April 1st, and guess what I want? A million dollars to pay for gas and a birthday card from Weird Al Yankovic.
