A Conversation with “Weird Al” Yankovic

Parody legend talks songwriting process, a possible sequel to UHF, and recording at Third Man Records

In what might be our funniest episode yet, Rock it Out! Blog host Sami Jarroush sits down for a chat with “Weird Al” Yankovic prior to his recent sold out show at the Chicago Theater. Yankovic, currently touring behind his latest release Mandatory Fun, shares the secret to parody writing.

He also discusses how he’s given credibility to artists he’s parodied, why there won’t be a sequel to his movie UHF, and he shared the story behind his recent trip to Third Man Records.
