More proof from Tom Lennon and R Ben Garant that everything you know about Weird Al Yankovic is wrong, no matter what his friends say.
Features songs from THE ESSENTIAL ‘WEIRD AL’ YANKOVIC two-disc set in stores now from Legacy Recordings.
Everything you know about ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic is wrong. Comedians Tom Lennon and R Ben Garant joined Al’s road crew to make some cash after Comedy Central canceled their TV show, “Reno 911.” After only a few days on tour, they’re already here to tell all.
Throughout this four-part series, Tom and R lay down the truth the mainstream media doesn’t want you to hear. For example, Dr. Demento is not a real Doctor.
Featured songs include “Yoda,” “Another One Rides the Bus, “Like a Surgeon” and more from THE ESSENTIAL ‘WEIRD AL’ YANKOVIC two-disc set in stores now from Legacy Recordings.
35 years ago today…Monty Python’s concert at the The Royal Theatre in Drury Lane (best known at the home of the muffin man) was recorded for their 1974 Live at Drury Lane album. To celebrate this moment in Monty Python history, we feature nothing from this recording in the first episode of the Gazillionth (or so) Monty Python Podcast hosted by MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann.
Instead, you will hear clips of classic routines and songs recorded for some of their other classic albums, as well as comments from cast members Terry Jones and Eric Idle and MP historian Kim Howard Johnson about how politics, history and the news inspired their work.
In other Python news, a charity screening of Life of Brian is set for this Sat March 28 in the Welsh village of Aberystwyth, where the fim was banned in 1979. Terry Jones and Michael Palin will appear, but not Eric Idle, most likely due to a previously scheduled brunch the next morning to celebrate his 66th birthday.

Legacy Podcasts salutes the 40th anniversary of Monty Python’s Flying Circus with “The Gazillionth (or so) Monty Python Podcast” hosted by their biggest fan in cable news – MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann.
March is John Philip Sousa’s favorite month, and 23 is a lucky number inspired by the recent news of Python’s 23,000% DVD sales increase due to youtube. Therefore, our four-part podcast series will launch on Monday, March 23.
The series features clips of their sketches and musical pieces they recorded for their string of classic albums that brought their comedy empire beyond TV and film to the most enduring entertainment device of them all – the turntable. You’ll also hear interviews with cast members Eric Idle, John Cleese, and Terry Jones, plus Carol Cleveland and many others.
We know you can’t wait until Monday so here’s Keith Olbermann (aka K-Dog) with a preview of what you’ll hear.
