Actually, HiaS, Michael Richards was unleashed on an unsuspecting world prior to UHF, on a network comedy skit/improv show called "Fridays".... it was intended to be competition for "Saturday Night Live" and ran on ABC I think. Obviously, it failed miserably....although the image of a tall, lanky Michael Richard trying to manuever in a men's room on roller skates will forever be ingrained in my memory. (Just think: mid-70's disco Kramer & you'll have the picture!!)

As for the Weird Al show, I know I would definately take advantage of seeing him... especially if free food & drink were involved!

He is very entertaining!

I would see him again if the tickets were free!

It was a weird show....usually I feel old at shows, but it was a family event, I guess. I had a set of seven year olds in front of me...and they LOVED the show. It was cool to see their enthusiasm for a live show.

I just read yesterday that Al will continue with his tour as planned, even after "the apparent accidental death of his parents last week". It seems that Mr. & Mrs. Y lit a fire in their home, but forgot to open the flue....they were overtaken in their sleep by carbon monoxide. Seriously! I know it sounds like a bad joke, but it was printed as the truth in my local paper with an AP Wire by-line. What a bummer...loosing both parents at once to something so easily remedied.

Been a Weird Al fan since he was making fun of Michael Jackson's 'Beat It'....

Really, really friggin sad about his folks. Especially for it to happen to someone who's made his life by making people laugh.....

He recently married and has a daughter, Nina...
At least his parents got to experience becoming grandparents......

Something makes me wonder if it might've been an incident of elder suicide... Mrs. Y was in ill health and I've been to more than one such call with the ambulance.

I can understand it, in a way... people who have been together for so much of their lives would rather die together as well, rather than have to endure losing one another through sickness and pain and funerals....

I always feel old at shows, too, but then last summer I met a 70 year old man who had driven alone for 3 hours to see Bjork! I refuse to feel old at shows again.

I'm glad you liked the show. I'd do something like that for fun, too, especially for free.

No kidding. God, that was such a shock to hear that...I felt so bad for the guy. I remember watching the "Behind The Music" show on him one time, and his parents seemed like such a kindly couple during the show.

Ooh...that's creepy...but yeah, I do see what you mean with that.

That was a terrible shock about his parents Talk about a freak thing to happen. How sad.

He has issued an announcement, he said that over the years people have told him that his songs have helped them through in times of tragedy and he thinks his music will help him too so he's going on with the tour.
