Weird Al Yankovic just threatened me with a Lawrence Welk-engraved weapon. Wait ‘til he sees my Lawrence Welk-engraved pistol! Just like an accordionist to bring a Lawrence Welk knife to a Lawrence Welk gunfight!

"Two immense stars from the world of music, 'Weird Al' Yankovic & Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber are on today’s Comedy Bean Bag! After chatting with Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber about English accents, The Little Prince, and nautical bed bugs, the Vicar of Yanks himself joins in on the conversation. There will be talk of drugs, what we shouldn’t expect from the next ‘Weird Al’ album, and an intense game of Would You Rather? Homonyms!”

I chat with the legendary Weird Al Yankovic. We talk about all sorts of things, culminating in a pact to become eccentric recluses living in a booby-trapped brownstone just across from Central Park.
Watch it here and subscribe! New episodes every Monday.
So! Here is the trailer for a web series I’ll be hosting, where I chat with cool people over actual alcoholic drinks. We’ve shot a dozen of these so far and I am grateful to have been asked to host them. I got to have interesting conversations with strangers and friends alike.
It goes live on Monday 5/7!
