"After this? Or was this the top of the hill for you? I did better in high school, I think. I think I might have done some speech stuff. My first year in college, but I got kind of bored with that pretty quickly. It wound up being more of a high school passion. But it was fun at the time. It was just, it was my first sort of performing as it were. So it got me in front of people and got me comfortable like speaking in front of people. And I guess I was you know very formative and helpful and, you know, doing what I do now, I guess. And was the next trophy one a Grammy? Was it egg? I don't know. Maybe? I mean, that trophy that you're holding in your hands. I mean, you could probably sell that on eBay for like three to 5 bucks. Easy. Oh, I'm going to. I'm in desperate need of cash. Anything helps. Yes. That's crazy. So what year did you win your first Grammy? 80, well, it was four 84, but the actual Grammys where I won it was an 85. Okay. And then you've won, everyone four? 5, but who's got it? Really? Well, then let's say 11. Okay. What is the experience like of being at the Grammys as a nominee? Is it boring? I feel like a lot of being an award show is going to be a little boring, but if you're nominated, that must be exciting. It's a whole different thing when you're nominated. I mean, it's still, I mean, my category, the comedy category is almost always in the pre telecast. Which is also I want to say it's boring, but it is. What did you do mystify the awards show? Yeah, but so I mean, if you're nominated, you're nervous through the whole thing. And if you're not, you're just sitting through the whole thing, but yeah, it kind of goes on for a long time and they go through every random obscure category until they get to your category and then all of a sudden it's very exciting. But it's a thrill. I mean, I like just even being nominated because it's a fun hang you get to go to the Grammys and hang with a lot of really cool people and it's generally a really good show. So yeah, I'm always happy when I get the nod. Right. At Grammy shows do you have any stories and strange things that have happened? Any weird people you've run into are exciting people? Well, my favorite Grammy story is one that I've told a lot of times, but I'll tell you as well. Please. Which is the year that chamillionaire won for writing dirty. Actually just called ryden, but anyway, he was on the red carpet. And he came up to me on the red carpet after he'd won his Grammy and he said, I just wanted to thank you for doing your parody white and nerdy because I think that your parody is a big reason why I won because it made it undeniable that my song was the rap song of the year. Wow. That's pretty cool. Thanks, man. That's great. I feel like because your career, you've been making music for so long. You've probably had an influence on basically every working musician. Young working musician at this point. I mean, I think you're kind of a gateway to music for kids, I think. For me, at least, if it's not only funny music, but it was the music I wasn't allowed to listen to by my parents. So it's like this. Do you get do you hear that at all? Yeah, I mean, I hear that I'm a lot of people's first concert or their first album. And it's because I partly, I think, because my music is considered quote unquote safe. It falls under the umbrella of family friendly. And I think that's because I don't use profanity, but my stuff gets pretty dark. It gets really dark. It's not really like kitty music 'cause there's some really adult concepts. Sprinkle through the music, but I don't like, you know, use harsh profanities, so I think a lot of parents go, oh, it's fine. But the kids listen. Yeah, I remember pretty specific memory of listening to I remember Larry. But I think if a parent has tuned it out, they don't hear that eventually, the narrator of the song murders the Larry character. Yeah, yeah. It's very dark. In fact, a lot of my original songs, I think are darker than the parodies. So on the vanity tour last time, after playing a couple of songs on a row about decapitation and mass murder, I stopped and I said, I didn't really realize it went before, but my stuff was really twisted. It's like dark. What am I thinking? I'm a happy person. I don't know what kind of demons on my suppressing. This is my arch, you know? I don't know, but it works. It absolutely works. Thank you. Yeah, this is what I actually can't believe that I just now own a trophy from you. This feels somehow cosmically unfair or something that suddenly now I have one of weird Al's trophies in my home. I think you can thank my wife for that as well because I think what could we give bridger that he'd really appreciate in my wife was like, you've got a box full of trophies. Maybe you could give him one. Yeah. I could, sure. Did you as a kid play sports or anything? Not really. I mean, I played a little bit of tennis and I was on any kind of professional team or anything like that. Ping Pong bowling. I mean, nothing's nothing strenuous. I mean, I was at prototypical nerd so PE class was when like the jocks would beat me up, you know? Let's play football with the nerd. You know? So it was never. So organized sports were really a big favorite of mine in high school and I've continued to not be that interested in them. So there. Do you do anything physically work out, exercise in any way? Not a lot. I don't go to the gym, the one thing I like to do is walk. So when I'm getting in shape for a tour, my House is up in the Hollywood Hills and I'll walk all the way down to Wilshire boulevard. Yes, like a 5 mile walk. And I enjoy it. You know, I get to get out and have some semi fresh air. And it's exercise and I put on the walk, not the Walkman. That's like what 80s. But you're tasting. I listen to digital music. On a device. And yeah, and that's also how I kind of relearn my lyrics for a tour. I'll put my songs on the iPhone or whatever. Just say it. Yeah. And so people will see me walking down the street. You can't even tell I'm wearing earpieces because my hair covers it up. It looks like I'm walking on the street, just moving my mouth like a crazy person. But I've completely dangerous. Yeah. Stay away from the weird guy. I will say speaking of your hair. I think it's probably been said before, but I think we need to point out that we now has the most luscious hair. Some of the most luscious hair in entertainment. I think it needs to be said. You can have this beautiful mane. And you could just cut off a piece and eat it right now. It's just luscious. Luscious locks. That's what we've got to say. That's the headline here. It's an iconic hairstyle. And it's luscious. Luscious hair. Do you consider somebody had to say it? I'm glad it was you. I use whatever project happened to be in the shower. Sometimes there's a shampoo. Sometimes it's conditioner. Sometimes both. So I like to mix it up. I go crazy. Is it hard to maintain? No, I mean, you know, it takes a while to comb through, so I don't do that every day. You're not seeing the full you're seeing the kind of unkempt Al today. Right. But yeah, I mean, it takes a while. It's a lot to deal with. Wow, yeah, so is there ever blow drying? No, I just. All my hair chips. I feel like people need to know. Just air dried, my friend. Wow. That's a lot of hair to air dry. I've never had long hair like that, but even my fairly short I enjoy dripping around the house though, it's something I like. My wife loves it. So you just slipping and sliding around this wet flour. Just constantly smell like mildew. Well, I'm glad we had to say it. People need to pay we've just.

"Okay. All right. Now we have a green listener. I apologize. And I completely blame Al for this. As you should. I broke through the first layer, and now we're to the an actual gift with this cat wrapping paper. This is incredible cat wrapping paper. What if this is like Russian nesting gifts? That's not a bad idea. And I actually sent you a molecule. One micro after another, just years go by. Podcasts, just thousands of hours of recording. Okay, we're ripping in, we're ripping in. Okay. I hope we're getting some more noise. How old was it? I'll just make noises while you're doing this so people know we're still alive. We've gotten to the box layer. We're opening. Now we're just some bubble wrap. Okay. Some bubble wrap, noise. You can have your private time with that later. We're busy now. Oh, what is this? It's a trophy. What? Yay. What this is, okay, I just need an immediate explanation. Well, that is an actual trophy that I want in high school. What? Which I'm giving to you, third place winner, high school speech team, 1976. Oh, my God. This is incredible. Listener, I mean, you know what a trophy looks like. But it's like a little man. It says third place, 76, SCD, L, expository. Now, what's SC DL? I believe is Southern California debate league. I didn't do debate. They did like expository speaking and humor some turpin, all sorts of other goofy stuff. But it was a competition. I want computer with other high schools, and I apparently came in third place and it was like I had my Grammys and that trophy and I was like, nah, that trophy doesn't quite fit in. You'd appreciate it. This is incredible. So how long were you doing this sort of speaking in high school? Was it something you did throughout your high school career? Or was it just like a I think most of it? I think probably a strut of my sophomore year in high school and it was like my big extracurricular activity. And I did like humorous interpretations of comedic pieces like from mad magazine or Woody Allen or Neil Simon or whatever. And then the expository was a ten minute long speech on the hot dog, which I think that took me to state. That was like my big my big hit. I did that my speech on the hot dog, which basically talked about all the horrible things that are in hot dogs and can be in hot dogs legally like so many milligrams of feces or rat hair or whatever. And I should point out that I did this speech over a decade and a half before I turned vegetarians during all the time. I was still happily eating hot dogs to my heart's content. Okay, so we were talking about hot dogs. What research did you put in to figure out what was going into these hot dogs? I probably went to the library. This is pretty interesting. I actually had to go and I think check out books. And maybe look at some hard bound encyclopedias. And the way that people gleaned their information, you know, back whenever that was in the mid 70s. Like, what books are you looking into to find out what's happening legally in a hot dog? There's probably the periodical section I probably would like to look at newsweek hot dog articles. For when there was some kind of thing from the FDA or whoever was investigating hot dogs at that time. Do you remember any of the speech? I. Gosh, I seem like I had to memorize for years. I can't remember a single word about it. I just remember that there were visual aids. So I was, you know, I would hold up a giant photorealistic hot dog at one point and I'd have charts and graphs and it was pretty stupid, but I was like, you know, 15 or 16 at the time, so at the time, it didn't bother me that it was stupid. Right. And at the time, because you've played at least accordion since you were a kid, right? At the time where you're writing songs? Yeah, I was getting some airplane, the doctor, Mentos, so I had my first, I think hit with them when I was like 16 years old. But yet, I mean, he played it on the radio, my friends called in to request it again. So but still, you know, I was on the show and I kind of thought that was pretty cool because, you know, I never thought that I'd have a career in show biz. I never thought I'd be doing anything remotely fun for a living. I thought it was going to be an architect. That's what I got my degree. Oh, no way. I didn't know that. Yeah, but yeah, at the time I was playing the accordion, and I was writing goofy songs and getting the random doctor demento AirPlay. So yeah, that started really early. So you're writing song funny songs and also performing funny comedy speeches basically. There must have been some small glimmer of hope in you that this could become a career. I mean, pipe dreams I wouldn't say that was really honestly I did not in my wildest imagination think I'd have a life like the one that I currently have. Because I thought, you know, I was very adult minded and rational and reasonably thought like, you know, I'm not really like, you know, the type that would be a rockstar. Or make a movie or be have anybody pay attention to me at all, really. So when I first started getting the airplane demento show, it was, you know, it was a thrill. I was tickled, but I didn't really think. Anything was gonna happen there. Having said that when I graduated from college, I did put myself out there and knocked on some doors and tried to get a record deal going. And to my amazement, that actually happened. But I mean, the whole time I was growing up and as a teenager, it never occurred to me that this is the path that my life would take. Right. How old were you when you got your first record deal? Well, my Bologna, I recorded that when I was 19, and I think capital records put it out when after I turned 20. Wow. And I didn't sign my first actual real record deal until I was, I think I was 22. I was in 1982, I think it was in the first job came out in 83. And that was a ten album deal. Oh my God. Which doesn't mean they thought I was gonna have ten albums. That was probably the last thing they would have imagined. It was just one of those draconian things where legally like if by some fluke, you happen to become successful. We've got you for the rest of your life basically. And that contract I will say that things actually did go well for me and not only did I fulfill all ten albums, but they tacked on four more during renegotiations. So it wound up being a 14 album contract, which I finally fulfilled with my last job of mandatory fun in 2014. So in just 32 short years, I was able to fulfill all my contractual obligations. That's not a bad turn around. Yeah. So you got this third place trophy. Did you continue doing speech competitively.

You know what if you're in a hot rainy desert resort town. You're good yeah. It's basically yeah just a desert. Remember our time and santa fe tosh. We had the most fun in santa fe. We stayed in a forest and my camper. That was ten minutes away from the ten thousand waves spa soaked in the spa and we went to meow off and then we ate read. We wait christmas chilly and then car. What a day that was. You did it all we did. Nothing more needs to be done. So mean tells what's going on all right so basically. I mean my boyfriend. We've been together for almost two years. I'm twenty so he's twenty two so we're kind of or a little bit more mature for our age just like money. Wise and wear priorities are And i'm so we're trying to move forward with that Get our own place together And his family is a huge part of our relationship in our lives consistently. His mom lives him on. So that's difficult and then Very different than me. They're like huge trump supporters and very. Can you tolerate it. I can tolerate. And i've been tolerating it for like two years going over there constantly in going back and forth between our houses and Now are excited about getting around place in. He understands at The boundary lines between him and his family are very strange to say the least. But basically now that we're able to get our own place His family just has a lot of They just expect like all ton from him. Like his sister is pregnant now She just had the baby like a week ago and she's not pregnant now. No no sh listen. I know i know you're mature for your age. But once the baby you're no longer pregnant wisdom from an older older guy. That's seen it all. I'm sure you house. Yeah so basically. Just her expectation expectations with He lives with. She lives with him right now. And it's just the two of them splitting the rent between each other and she lives with his pregnant sister. Yeah again the tasha. She had the baby. She's not pregnant anymore. But now you're taking so. Is he kind of like the mother hen that everyone kinda circulates around and he takes care of them all completely like his mom had all of she had all four of her kids before the age of twenty. So he's kind of the father figure that helper outer. I say that's a lot. I mean it's amazing to meet a man like that because i'm sure he has like great qualities and has really developed his patients and i don't know it sounds like complete. You know his caregiving. Just like i don't want to have to feel this. Resent growing against his family because of how much they're disrupting our own relationship. I have i have it. You have to manipulate his family through him. And you have to like explained him that you have boundaries and. I think that they listened to him. He's the he's the mother hen for whatever reason so he is. It's it's actually together you to have to be like a solid unit and i know exactly might have to do it in therapy might have to do it in a few sessions. Don't think moshe like together figure out how to unless he's like what i wanna be around my family. You know this much time. I want my sister to live with us. If he's like that. Then you have to decide if you can live with that because it's going to get twenty percent worse than it is that you're already tolerating once you move in together once. You're there all the time you're going to see all this stuff. He does for his family. That you didn't even know about so. I really think you need to have a talk. Okay do you live with your folks or do you live alone right now. Yeah i live with my dad at the moment Got up. And i i was gonna say when you when you brag about how mature were for twenty. I was going to be like. I hate things like this when people bragging then i looked at her house to house plants growing this is. She is mature. Like i couldn't keep a house plant growing. I couldn't keep a house plant going now. I can barely keep our child alive so you do kind of have your shit together. Sounds like i'm still trying to get to the. What is the thing that you're concerned about is like motions like what's wrong with spending five days a week with your family node. I'm saying like what are you worried about is going to happen. What's your worry. I guess. I'm just worried that things won't change necessarily like we will see you want them detain. Yeah i just want them to. Not i want him to be able to tell his sister and we have we talked and we set a date which is six months from now. Roughly so the beginning of two thousand twenty twos date to move So that we have time to save up a good amount of money and stuff so that we can be comfortable But i don't wanna feel negatively towards his family and then that means you need to see them less to not be annoyed by them and if you do you guys have any sense of.

I could say that. I came to that is for a long time. I thought that babies were birthed out of women's but holes. I just didn't really think that why didn't really mom told you about lesbian poetry. But she didn't tell you that women came out of a vagina. No but i just couldn't couldn't envision it it didn't make sense and so i just thought that i knew that the but holes things came out of it.

"Just based on the facial. I come on baby. You were saying self care just just you know. Brush your teeth every once in a while that. I think i think we're all we're all thinking and saying the same why i'll put the question back to you. Why do you think you have to. Why do you that that should be. The goal is to be in one of the. Maybe you should. Maybe you should just have fun flings. Maybe that's not where you're at right. Now why do you think that's important. I don't necessarily. I truly enjoy my alone time and i. It's not that. I feel like i need that. I just feel like you're kind of hung up on this other girl on girl no feel like i am. I just feel like. I was on a path that i thought was the right path. And now that it's over. I'm like oh well what what the heck what am i supposed to do you know. Are you feeling like every relationship that you start now just doomed to fail that kind of poison your yeah yeah no i definitely feel that sometimes. Yeah not doomed to fail. But i'm just like. I don't wanna waste other people's time when i already know that i'm not going anywhere with this. You know i would hate to waste. Somebody's time and they'd be like european shit. This has been six months and you could told me this forever ago. And i'm like are you just feeling like he just don't want to commit to anybody at this point. I don't know you're you're you're i mean i think you're going to meet someone that you're to be attracted to eventually boom and it'll be in the know but i think she might not like you back if you don't spend time really thinking about what you want and you know what would be. I'm kinda like i'm like al in that. Most of my love life was unsuccessful. Until i met. Natasha and i started to get into this group. I was like looking into what was going on with myself. And trying to figure it out by the way my primary feeling. Listen to you. Like life is supposed to be lived inexperienced. Not figured out like you don't need to figure it out now what's going to happen. You're just supposed to go through life and have experiences. But i kept having this realization where i was like. If nobody i'm dating is good enough for me. Than i must be the problem and i just so i went into work myself and work on myself and work on myself in the and no matter how much i worked myself. Nothing seemed to change. I kept having relationships. Filling or short lived exciting but not meaningful. And i was like. It's me it's gotta be me. It's gotta be me. And then. I met natasha. And everything felt very easy and then we got married so then i was like. Oh maybe i was wrong. Maybe it wasn't me. You just have to meet a tolerant woman. Yeah you got around to find somebody. It seems like maybe. You're i mean i don't wanna put words in your mouth like maybe you're just not ready for that kind of a relationship which is fine because again. I met my wife in my late thirties. And it wasn't until very close to that point that i really was open for a very very serious relationship like that and she was the same way she you know it was art of you know the one and only marriage for both of us and so we find each other late in life and we talk all the time about how. If we made each other in our twenties they probably wouldn't've worked out because neither one of us at that point. Were ready for that kind of a relationship. So maybe you just need to find your time. Yeah take it take it easy and and the girl that i dated for six months had i met her before the eight year one. I probably would be dating right now. You know right. I'd probably stay with her. It sounds to me like you're in your head and you should just sit back. Enjoy what happens tip for you too when you think about this eight year relationship. Think about what you really liked in it and what what was what you wanna keep from that experience with glasses on the eight year relationship you know i know but what i'm saying is and then think about what you didn't like in that relationship made it what made it crumble. And just make sure you're really clear about those things to next phase eventually. Let me ask you question when you think about that. Eight year relationship. Do you think that she wasted your time. No no so. Why do you think the dating somebody now would waste their time. If you if you weren't ready to fully commit till the end of earth and the end of life. I just feel guilt towards the idea of like a year goes by this guy or two years or whatever like oh i just don't want it to not be reciprocal at the level that if they want it to be stopped trying to figure it out. That's what i think. That's natasha to alan parting. Words you don't think so much so much all feel the place. Just watch all the best pictures this year. He wasn't a vhs as think so much. Yes good luck all right. Good luck honey. Sister works tbs and she wanted me to show on your show rat in the kitchen. Thank in weirdo. Running with sisters was my shit.

"Hello good good. It's natasha zero. And of course weird. Al yankovic is here to help you out. How's it going on. it's cool will. Oh my god. Huge of all of y'alls thank you so much thank you. We're more of a beal's above podcasts. It happened in the last ten minutes so call out call out to that man. What's happening. how can we help you. Well this is the relationship advice podcasts. And talking with your lovely producer laura and basically I was in a really long relationship. Eight years relatively large. You know and. I have trouble finding any. It's not even a lack of trust issue. It's more of just finding interest in new relationships. I've had bad and good since then and had no interest in committing. I was afraid of losing another three years. So i'm kind of in that place of where do i go from here. How do you find some. So you're basically you're out of an along relationship background play too many video games no it just. It's okay you watch too many movies. That's what we give up on media. Just give up on media altogether. So you're out of a long relationship and because that relationship loom so large in your background thinking you'd find it hard to connect with anybody else. No i find it very easy to connect with people but committing to going into something super serious long-term again as daunting and overwhelming. You know i'm just. I had a really nice relationship. I met her during the beginning of pandemic and we were together for six months and we broke up because she was like. I know. you don't aren't taking a serious enough. And i was like all right. I'm not and right. You just weren't that into her honey you you might be right but i. I don't know well. Is it difficult to stay in a relationship when you're a long haul trucker only based on mustache and jeff ross. Podcast burn you back roasted back. I mean unless you're like desperate to start a family in my opinion. I don't know what the what the what's the rush. Yeah just should the white guy complaining about nothing. Or i don't know like but i do kinda feel like i'm treading water for no reason where you might be a shitty white guy that just made an excuse to talk to weird al. I didn't know on the show. I would make any excuse to talk to where now. What do you think you've been in a marriage for a long time. You're you're you're happily married man. What is the secret to finding someone that you can do. You have any insight on finding someone that makes you wanna stick around. You know it's a little bit of tenacity. I didn't find the love of my life until i was in my late thirties. So it's it's a little bit tougher me to give relationship advice. 'cause i've had a string of very dysfunction relationships they're all most of my adult life. But i just kinda hang in there and now maybe is a time for you to work on self care which not not necessarily like or any kind of woo although although you could use a spot. They.

Is one step better than when guys have one of those packets in their mouth and they spit or the snooze. that's actually actually two steps more disgusting than toothpicks. Thank you very much. Don't go to news please. What's because all of a sudden. They shock you with their big black spit especially in cova nose sneezing and codes. You don't wanna get shocked by big black. No no no. I think you should go back to the gum. I don't wanna tune on gomel day. I was always biting my lip and stuff. i like. i like the. I don't do you know how you don't get dressed up all sexy for me. You do it for you. I don't do nicotine toothpicks for you. I do them for me right but you also leave them the places i am working on that. I'm trying to get better. I just thought of something. Yeah remember those abalone shells. Why don't we put some of those around and those can be your hope you. You don't wanna look at them all you need. I would way rather have them in a curled up. Abalone shell that. I had to like peer into and they kind of blend in then. Just put it like on like a shellacked lake mantelpiece. What you need is we need some cigar boxes of popham open but then a friend comes over and they accidentally open your cigar box coming through our free cigars and opens up. Our is okay now if you do the cigar box like where you're going with that could you empty it. Every other day. I could work. I could do that. You don't what to do that. Okay and so we are going to spend the two hundred dollars for couples therapy on so maybe a really beautiful cigar box hundred dollars how much you think. Cigar boxes cost. Well let's get a two hundred dollar one. They don't have that. Arthur box of cigars and smoke them. All get back into cigarettes would rather die of lung cancer or your house be littered with pulped up toothpicks in the laundry. You didn't answer the question who die of wet lung cancer that you want me to die of lung cancer more than these little toothpick pulps around. Oh i thought you meant me me. Oh you know. I don't eat donnie. Thank you natasha. By the way. Natasha thinks she's going to die after me. Even though even though she's five years older than me she's convinced i'm going to die for women live longer right but five years longer. I know but everyone in my family dot. All the women died at eighty to. Your dad died at like fifty seven. That's one guy that's not a scientist pretty close to who you who your where your genes come from pretty kosher but my my my grandma lived to be eighty six. My i had a great grandfather was one hundred and two okay. Ain't that something. Yeah no you're probably gonna live to be like in the hundreds. You think i would love that. Oh i have a question for you. Didn't tasha last time. We did cancer or cancelled. Would you rather would you rather and this goes for our listeners. As well you may right in with your take on this would you rather live to be one hundred and twenty years old and for one hundred and fifteen of those years you are healthy. You are nimble minded. You can get up and do your own thing like you're smart. All is good but then the last five years of your life are like agony. Incredible pain but you stay lucid long enough for two and a half years your lucid enough to feel all of the pain in a conscious mind but then the last two years you start losing it and you are aware then you're simultaneously in pain and losing it at the same time or that's option a or option. B you die at seventy five immediately and instantly and how. How long do you get to live in the second one hundred twenty. P you get twenty you get forty five extra years. Is that right math. Yeah forty five for forty five extra years. I only five seventy five to one hundred twenty five all right and then one hundred twenty forty five extra years what you say here. I'm gonna go with the forty five extra years. Yeah yeah eighty to make it a harder decision. You died eighty. That's what i say. Eighty i don't know honey love asking people this. Should i ask our guests. You should ask him about cancer or cancelled. Because i think that here ain't getting canceled. This guy's an american treasuries admiral. But i know he will definitely say he would rather get cancelled. Bet we've already done that now. We're going to move on my next one. Okay all right. This guy paul. The way. I mean i'll tell you what one of the milestones in my comedy career was when i did a panel show with him and i was like i've done it with i did was sinbad by what we should get. Simba had on the show. I did was sinbad and our next guest and both those moments i was just like dang i did not expect comedy to have meat next to people that i was watching when i was a kid like heroes way. I remember listening to my radio to like. Listen to doctor demento under my pillow and he would come on. And i was like under seventh grade for sure. He was young then though one of the funniest people ever by the way. I'll tell them this when he comes on. But i've seen him live in. Nobody liked him. I mean one of the best live shows in comedy of all time ever i will say. Are we ready the one and only he needs no introduction even though.

"He does this all the time. How kicking slice watermelon and it went flying lives such a good kick. oh good. I'm glad you were happy with yourself. Yeah no it really made me change the my ways no. We're going through a lot of changes you're in. You're going to by the time people here this you'll have these two boys. I don't know if you've decided on the name set. I don't wanna hear what they are. But you know what the names are. We are pretty confident. We have the names. Yeah confident and is one conan. You can say if it's not it's not is the other one conan is the other one the other ones neither one of them are conan. No of no offense. It's just no doesn't seem to be okay that right well. I don't need the competition. I don't need like another coenen gray out there. So this is maybe it's best. Maybe it's for the best but anyway if you change your mind just let me know. Yeah it's available does not seem to be a popular name. I don't know what happened but the other big change is that i've been doing pretty much nightly show more or less nonstop since nineteen ninety-three. It's been twenty eight years and We are in the process of wrapping it up right now on On tbs and then yeah you know may soon. I'll go on to do other things. I'm kind of hyperactive person. Who likes to make stuff. But this is a big. It's a big transition and people keep asking me you. Okay are you okay. How are you feeling. And i feel fine but then i think what if i'm i'm so catholic an irish. What if what if i'm just blocking it. What if i'm blocking up some powerful emotions and are those one of those gonna come to the surface. Maybe not for years. I don't know. I honestly don't know but i haven't walking around thinking i'm supposed to be you know that. Yeah no i think so. I don't know. I think that you know that it's the right time to do this. Think that you know that it's it's you're you're good and i mean it's television. It's like who watches tv anymore anyway right you know. I'm just depressed. So i so i voted twenty eight years of to something. Nobody gives it about which is actually. i do. have a kind of people think that. I'm being gloomy. When i say these things. But i'm really not I very much think. Do your work do the best that you can really try and enjoy it. And that is all happened for me to such an insane degree and then move on because There's other things to do and Having a you know such a great wife in liza and these two kids nevin back and we just have such a great family life And there's so much more to do that Yeah you think. Just just keep moving. Just just move on get on with it and You know. I think people think a lot of what for my legacy be and i think i think i think the world has so much more imprint stuff to think about. I really do. And i think it'll be out there on the internet and people can peruse it. That's the thing it's going to be there. It's just going to be there and it's bouncing around in space. Aliens are watching it and saying he gets much better after ninety. Four congratulations sincere. Congratulations to for my god that you do have a huge legacy and a huge body of work. That is funny i. It's all i ever wanted. Was i used to talk about this. It's ended so pretentious. But when i was twenty one and twenty two i would people people ask me. What do you think you want to do. And i said. I just want a body of work and i thought what twenty two year old says. I want a body of work. But i talked about it all the time and then i never thought that it would be masturbating. Bear a dog puppet that says horrible things to people And just a million other things. But i'm kind of i'm delighted with it and You people can like it or not like it but it's all it's all out there and it makes me. It makes me very happy. So yeah you're right. I don't think there's a reason to be. There's not sad. I also you know as as your employees. And i think i speak for a lot of people who work on your show it is. It has been one of the like it's been just the best place to work. You're a great boss. This is actually. I'm being sincere. That's why a lot of people have worked on the show since the very beginning. Now we have a couple of people that have been with us. I mean really. It's actually a shocking number. I would say a bunch of people that were with me in nineteen ninety three and i still talked and they still work on the show and i still talk to them. Every day and That's pretty stunning. Like we've all gone through so much together. Yeah yeah it's it's okay now. I'm starting to feel things all right. That's nice now it's bad still no. It was just gas. Oh it was gas sort of up near my sternum. Okay just just shifted. i think. Also you're the kinda of guy like your dad. You're just going to work until you just cannot physically do it anymore. Yeah my dad's like that. Yeah i think you're just you're going to be like ninety five and your dad is funny thing i'm doing now. My dad is ninety. Two and he is still a prizefighter. He's still gets rain he's terrible. He loses very quickly to these young twenty year old incredible boxers and he's beaten senseless.

That was a three hundred dollar craigslist creek crowded if you three hundred dollars for it on craigslist. Yeah because because. I would think that you don't want to upset anybody that doesn't seem like that's in your nature. I don't even like to to punch that. I don't like. I don't like punching anybody really if i can be funny without hurting somebody's feelings. I mean that's that's always a plus. I have done a few things over the years that i'm not proud of that. I felt like i might might have gone a little too far. But in general i like to. I don't like i hope. I hope my comedy isn't perceived perceived as toothless. But i do think it's more of a challenge to be funny without you. Know making it at somebody else's expense. Yeah but i think. Also there's a certainly i mean. Obviously there's a lot of political comedy out there and it's been it's been sort of david gour for the last four or five years but i also think there's a longing where people wanna go someplace and enjoy comedy. That is not hitting those buttons so to speak. I kind of feel like you know randy rainbows to fill a vacuum for the last few years in terms of political. Comedy and song parody. Because that's something that. I just don't ever wanna touch because i i for me personally. It's it's divisive and it doesn't date well. I mean that's you know if you have any kind of political comedy. It's old news like two weeks later and obviously in late night. We have to do some topical stuff from we. It's it it's you can't avoid it but over the years. I've always really tried to make sure that we have stuff every night. Something that will still resonate. Maybe if someone comes upon it somehow in fifteen twenty years it still works. There's something about that evergreen stuff that they can all be hanging chad jokes will actually. They were i. Did i love anyone listening right now. Who wouldn't know what a hanging chad. But it's so funny because if it's even funny that night maybe but then you go forward like whatever eight years and people don't know what you're talking about. They think that it's a group of men named chad who committed suicide the dancing. He does have a real shell on. What was your biggest. You must have met just pretty much. Everybody who's your. Who was the person that you met in your in your career as weird al yankovic did they just blew you away. Was there a moment where you thought. I can't believe i'm and is again present company excluded. I was gonna say it's hard to compete with the whole meeting. Who had comecon there or or was it comic relief. Yeah yeah me meeting me nine years before nine years before i got my talk. Show meeting at twenty. I remember twenty two year old conan. O'brien still still wrestling his way through puberty. But who did you get to meet any of your idols. That i'm at paul mccartney early on like an eighty four when i just i think aided just come out and and i got invited to his give my regards to broad street premiere party and i got to kind of angle my way through the crowd past while he's other people martha quinn and michael. Keaton and i finally got up to paul mccartney. And i just said hey paul how you doing my name's allegation vic. And he goes oh weird al and he turns to linda mccartney. Honey look weird. Al and my head exploded then and they're just couldn't believe. The paul mccartney had any idea who i was and also that's a real testament to i mean meeting someone like paul mccartney especially then too because i think now he's around more. He does the hollywood squares on sometimes. If he's lucky he's on family feud you know. He was on a season of jersey shore. He's he just makes the rounds now. He's sitting here you know. He's always around we here in new jersey. I remember when he was on that. Show yeah yeah. I remember members on gigolos al cone on your delightful man as are you am i though on the right circumstances sure no. I'm you know it's funny because the concept of this podcast was. There are people that i would like to who i've met over the years but it's i always get my sort of tight five six minutes with them. And then they're off and the machine that i'm in keeps chugging along and it's onto the next thing and you're one of those people who i've always admired and really enjoyed. That's nice to hear me thank you. Yeah it is sort of like. I don't get a chance to actually hang out with my friends so so doing their podcasts are just a way of me connecting with people so this like hey you wanna come over for dinner. No i'll do podcast instead. you know. we'll just. We'll just hang. Hang out only talk to my wife through the podcast over the only relationship. I haven't heard just podcast friends. I do there are many people have wanted to meet. And they don't have a podcast and they live or canadian like two doors away and this is even without cove. It and i won't go speak to them. I know talking about unless they're taking a break to do a commercial for a mattress. What's the point of talking to them. True but Getting to talk to. You is ben. There's been a real treat and i. I hope we get to cross paths again soon because you know and if you ever need me to sit in with your band and sort of lower the overall musical quality of it i might take you up on that now just with the longest week.

Yeah i look forward to it. You're someone who does not want to hurt someone's feelings and its its surprising because there are people in comedy that don't care and then there are people in comedy that really do care and sometimes it's a shock because there are people out there that can be quite brutal in their comedy but they say and i believe them. They don't want to hurt someone's feelings. They just feel that there's a little bit of a disconnect or that people don't really mind but have you ever had an issue with any of the artists that you've parodied not not really. I mean the the one famous exception is coolio. But that was more of a miscommunication. He He contends that he never gave permission for me to do amish paradise and i was told by my record label that he had so there was a little bit of a mix of their and there. We didn't really have a beef or anything like that but there was a little bit of awkwardness for a couple of years. But but everything's fine. Now is water under the bridge.

You're welcome and it wasn't good chocolate. It wasn't it wasn't good enough. Wasn't that good. I thought you were going to watch. It'd be five percent cocoa. I know hershey's and nope. I'm not putting her. She's it was. It was something you could have gotten anywhere. It just seemed very petty of you. I remember that thinking. I just wanted it from you. Yeah and then as i was leaving you said oh and one more thing. Prince's smaller than you think he has and i said that's not necessarily that's not necessarily he's like microscopic and you were just stuffing chocolates cheap chocolate into your face and i. I didn't understand any of it. You are this is known about you but you're an extremely kind person. You're very nice person. I don't know what that's all about. Because i decided a long time ago. I'm not going that way mean i. i'm flattered and a little confused when somebody brings it up. I like being thought of as a nice person. But virtually everybody that i know in hollywood except for you. Of course see the. I don't see the profit in it. I don't see. I'll be honest with you. I don't see. What do i get out of being quote. Nice guy and i've seen you and hanks and people try it and i'm like okay. Whatever but i don't buy it. it's not for me. It's not the way. I wanna go. I think i'll be remembered longer. Fm an incredible prick. But no. i don't know it's funny. Because i do relate to in certain ways which is there are a lot of people that get into comedy that are you read about their childhoods. And they're they're the bad boys or whatever. They're they're drifters or loners you. I think we're like me in that. We were both And this is a shameful thing to admit later on. When you're in comedy is that you were a good student. Yeah what. I write a song like white and nerdy that come from decades of experience you that that's all. I'm just took a few minutes to scribble down but it took a lifetime deride i my high school valedictorian. I graduated when. I was sixteen years old. Because i skipped second grade and i was always like the nerdy kid and i wasn't voted like class clown or best sense of humor. I just thought of is like you know the nerd. Yeah and it wasn't until i started doing college radio that i kind of allow that part of me to blossom below but miles always just sort of like ostracized and like the guy eating by myself at lunch. Well i'm that guy now no one and then you find it radio. There was something about radio that brought it out of you. Because no one's looking at you there's air to fill and so that's when this part of you can emerge in sort of evolve. Is that right yeah. I started doing college radio very early on and and that's where i officially became weird. Al took on the name. Weird al's do word. I'll show on casey. Pr san luis obispo and every saturday tonight for three hours. I got to take a break from my architecture. Work majoring in architecture. Which is a horrifyingly punishing major architectural and and. It was just nice to have a release like for three hours saturday night. I could like let it all out and do crazy characters and have my friends on the air and play bizarre music and just be a goofball and it was like it was my only joy really during my college years and by the time i was graduating i was thinking. Why shouldn't i just stuff that makes me joyful in life so that would kind of lead me on this path that i'm on to the status interesting that you had that thought because i thought that for a long time i was raised catholic and i i just had that ingrained suspicion of anything that felt good or two joyful or too easy i had a hard time reconciling that your work could be joyful and joyous. I if it's not painful like not really worth yes. Is that how you felt. I don't think you had that not may not so much. Although i just you know. I never thought that i would have a career in showbusiness because that you know what are the odds. I grew up playing the accordion. You know i i. Don't i know that you would probably disagree. But i don't have classic movie star looks and that was my question is how did you get classic movie star looks. We'll get to that. We'll get i just i just. I just figured that you know i. I wasn't cut out for that. And i you know i have my rockstar fantasies like every other fourteen year old but i just never thought that i would have a living doing something that i really enjoy. And nowadays you know with a few mouse clicks. Anybody can upload their material to the internet. and if it's good enough people will find out about it so it's just amazing the access that people have to fame these days. Well it's revolutionize things completely. Because i was you know i mean fox is brand new when i get started in the business. So there's really still. I'm i'm living kind of in a three network. Reality cable is something that if you wanna watch it you have to check into a motel and then i literally worked for show on. Hbo and i remembered one. You know thinking if my parents are going to see this they're going to have to check into the radisson which had a big sign out front. That said we have hbo so it was a different era..

"Me news and talk and you know that one like a surgeon by weird al Yankovic and if you ever played a weird al Yankovic's song on the weekly check up it's our song of the week senator songs you'd like to hear and we may start playing them as early as next week we're back on the weekly check up on your host doctor Bruce Feinberg and it's open Mike on the weekly check up we're taking your calls on anything and everything and if we get a low I'm gonna be covering what are the viral healthcare stories of twenty nineteen we got a call from one of our frequent guest on the show doctor Barry's it's also Georgia urology Barry is very engaged in the antisemitism movement in Atlanta and he wanted to call and speak about an event that's happening later today and the reasons behind it Barry with me Hey how you doing I'm good I'm I'm I'm happy hunting I'm sorry we're having this call yeah I'm sorry to I look I always good being on your show I'm sorry I'm not with you today but unfortunately we have to be talking about this subject because I sufficient you know that patients are also treated equally and everybody has red blood and whether they are of a certain religion or certain race we treat them equally and it's very disheartening to see that in two thousand and twenty four two thousand nineteen the ride the vantage semitism or the rise in anti religion I just heard that there was another shooting in fort worth Texas a few hours ago in a church so this is a terrible situation that we have going on in this country and I don't really understand it but that's what's happening so so far you've been engaged in this movement for a while and I know that you're personally involved in in also planning and I'm a kind of a memorial event or a call to action event that's taking place later today well I haven't been involved in this particular movement for a long time but today after last night it's been at the monthly and today is the last night of the lighting up and then all right the eight day so we are having a event which recalling unite to light or for the United of to light and we are going to do it at the local host shopping center at four thirty this afternoon and we are calling for people of all religions and all in in whether your religious or not what the Jewish or not but the a white or black to come out and state that anti religion or anti any person for any reason as long so is it is part of a movement against hate and hate hate is is a phenomenon it's it's it's hard to explain generally hate is not good for the person who perpetrated because it it's brought from all kinds of what used to be called evil here now we understand them differently but people who manifestation are not healthy and and the people who are affected by that hate us suffer and so we saw I think in the stabbing in Muncie five people were injured I know in the church shooting I don't know the number of people who were shot this morning but literally within twenty four hours when you have within houses of worship or or events taking place against clergy to have them back to back twenty four hours is a very scary premise and it seems like it's not a holiday that goes by now we're something like that doesn't happen right you're right and its resistance again we see everybody is equal and this is very antithetical to our way of thinking so I'm you'll be there I'm sure that people will be turning out for the folks listening of if you could tell go shopping center is on druid hills at the intersection of Briar cliff or is it in the first quarter of a druid hill and look at the road druid hills in la Vista road and that that and it'll be obvious when people get there they'll see something that will let them know if they want where to be your work affecting hundreds and hundreds of people all right well I'm sure I'm sure events like this are to be taking place across the nation because a you just wonder when it when is the strongest camel the camel's back when is just it when is it too much and when will the general population not just be saying what a shame and changing the channel so they don't have to hear any more bad news when will they be taking action in coming to events like the one you're going to be participating in in order to make that stand to be to be active to be loud to make it known that we do things this country differently I whether it's policy changes what it or education changes whatever it takes to change this culture of eight well thank you very much for having me on and I hope you don't have anymore these discussions posted so next time we'll hopefully be talking about urology all right Harry all right that was not your buries itself of George urology on you know again unfortunately in another holiday with it with multiple tragic events bred by hate interestingly I I didn't pull any stories although when we get into the issues of why is there a lower life expectancy trending in this country the number of deaths due to suicide the number of deaths due to opioid crisis of of people in their mid intimidating younger I'm speak to a tremendous amount of of of unrest on happiness discontent and it does raise questions about how do you change that how do we have the wealthiest country in the world and we still have so many people being affected in that way I'm sure they will be answered generated today but solidarity the communing of people with similar mine's getting together has value and hopefully others will be will be there we're getting back to the phones as we have an open Mike on the weekly check up and I'll be talking about anything and everything as I said from you know fungal infections of the feet to dementia and everything in between and also being because also be covering the viral stories in the news in this year twenty nineteen when I think about this viral stories there are a few of them that particularly resonate with me I'm going to mention a few of them that I'll be getting too in a little bit but one was the fact that antibiotic research and new antibiotic development is rapidly declining in this country and we talked on the show before about the super Boggs these highly resistant bacteria that are becoming a threat more so in in the rest of the world and less so in the US but none the less they're knocking on.

Grammy Awards: Performances, winners, highlights

"I will say this about the about the about the Grammys. It was long. I mean long it started at seven. And it ended at a quarter to eleven. Oh, yeah. That's yeah. That's really long. Yeah. And you the know you had your e. Red carpet, which I think started around noon. The get gets Seacrest out there. And there's you know, they're they're out there for three hours before the before the show so long. It was a long long night for all the people who were there. The overall. I mean, like I said earlier the Grammy's really is. Not like other award shows in that they're mostly concerned with the performances not so much, you know, the awards themselves. They only hand out a few awards during during the Grammy's mostly it's about. It's about the performances and there were there was a ton of performances on the on the show. Some were good some weren't. Like, I said for me the best performance of the night. With brandy Carlisle. Who I really like a lot. And I thought her I thought she gave the best performance. And and of course, you had you had your tributes there. Diana Ross turned seventy five and she did she did your basic Diana Ross over the top performance. And. Herger grants her grandson introduced her and he's nine and he's got like an incredible head of hair. He was he was real. He was really he was really very very funny this kid, and then there was a tribute to Dolly Parton, which was great because Dolly Parton. That's that's the one that. I I really wanna go back and watch. Yeah. It's it's you definitely should because. Between her and Cyrus working together. And then. Her singing the song called red shoes? I just you know, I mean, I love I love Dolly Parton. She's she's phenomenal. So but overall, I I mean, I did think it was way too long. And you know, they were cutting their speeches. Who people would get up there? And when they're when they're award, and then they were just like really blasting the music and cutting the speeches. Which at that point. It's like at this point man, the show is like four and a half hours long. But are we? What are you? What are you worried about the speeches for so? But yeah, I mean here are some of the winters are, you know, some of these winners are were surprising. I think. So like, for instance, record of the year went to this is America by childish Gambino, which I'm thrilled about because I love childish Gambino. But Donald Glover wasn't there. That was the that was the disappointing thing. It was like, you know, they want some major awards. One record of the year and run one song of the year. So those are two major major awards Donald Glover wasn't there. So this is America one song of the year at one record of the year album of the year went to golden hour by Casey muss graves. Who I was not very familiar with. But she's good. Best new artist went to do a leaper best solo pop solo performance went to JoAnne. Where do you think you're going by lady Gaga? Best pop duo or group performance went to shallow by lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, by the way, lady Gaga's performance was weird. I mean, she's she is a bit of a weird. Performer in general. But. It was very intense and crazy. She was wearing a weird civil know like a glittery jumpsuit and making all kinds of weird faces and stuff, and I just was I was the little I was a little confounded by her by your performance. And I really liked the song. I mean, obviously shallows a terrific song. And it's probably going to win an Oscar and a couple of weeks for her. But yeah, she and Bradley Cooper got the got the award for best pop duo or group performance. Best pop album went to sweetener by our 'Grande, Ariana GRANDE day, best rock performance with when bad. Does goodbye. Chris cornell. Chris cornell. How did he have a backlog of of new material is that what the deal is? That's that's got to be. Yeah. What happened there? Yeah. Well deserved. Well. Yeah.
