“Weird Al” Yankovic’s traveling ministry, I mean tour, descends on Springfield June 5 at the Prairie Capital Convention Center. One-of-the-funniest comedians alive today, Yankovic’s brilliant wackiness, killer accordion and band, and poignant and positively hilarious songs with make you disappear into a heaven of laughter for three hours. Beginning his comedic life via the Dr. Demento nationally-syndicated radio show, “Weird Al” has a slew of Grammys, gold and platinum awards for his albums and videos and is also a New York Times best selling author. Be sure to check out his new album, Alpocalypse, to be released June 21 and his awesome Internet realm at www.weirdal.com.
