How could we not mention Weird Al Yankovic, the biggest selling comedy artist of all-time? I'm taking my son to see him Saturday. He really puts on a great show.

Also, while I'm at it. If a reggae band playing Led Zeppelin music fronted by an Elvis impersonator sounds good to you (and it did to me) try Dread Zeppelin. Their first album "Un-Led-Ed" is their best.

And he's got a real band, an ass-kicking band. One can see them age on his collected videos DVD, a real fave around here. There's a brand new live dvd. too. They showed an abbreviated version on Comedy Central to launch. Lookin' forward to watching with the kids. Don't know if I can wait for Christmas, maybe it will be a Thansgiving treat.

Even though they were surrounded by seriously talented musicians, I would say The Blues Brothers. They were certainly funny to watch at times.

Yeah, Kate Micucci is really cute. And was really good in Scrubs and The Big Bang Theory.

Riki Lindhome doesn't seem repugnant either: (NSFW)

Hi,

The family of musicians that went on with Paul's brother (Mike McGear) is worth a listen and has lyrics and it helped bring out the one and only Neil Innes that eventually went to Monty Pitython.

All in all, Grimms, and Mike's solo efforts are all nuts and off its rocker and insidiously funny! Almost a very FZ type of humor, though it has no enemas for you fans!

Highly recommended, but be aware that some of it is "intelectual", and this is not something that is normally appreciated by FZ fans!
