‘Weird Al’ Yankovic to Receive His Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame 8/27

Receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is generally considered a  strong token of appreciation for a public figure, whether an actor, comedian, humanitarian or another status worthy of such accolades — and on August 27, “Weird Al” Yankovic will (finally) receive his for his decades-long career.

The news comes shortly after Al and his band finished the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, a trek across North America catering to only the most dedicated fans interested in long concerts of deep cuts and rarely-played material.

Al’s friend and mentor Dr. Demento will be on-hand for the star dedication event, as will actor/comedian Thomas Lennon, another of Al’s dearest colleagues:

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced today that “Weird Al” Yankovic will be honored with the 2,643rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, August 27th, at 11:30 a.m. PDT. The star will be dedicated in the category of Recording at 6914 Hollywood Boulevard across the street from the TCL Chinese Theatre.

“Weird Al has single-handedly created an industry of parody! His fans have been waiting for this star for a very long time. We are excited to honor this very funny man on our world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.

Congratulations, Al! Keep being weird.
