Weird Al Yankovic Scores His First #1 Billboard Album

Billboard has just reported their official chart toppers and it Weird Al Yankovic has indeed made it to #1 with his latest album Mandatory Fun. This is an overdue first for Weird Al.

We’re not surprised given how well crafted both the album and music videos were as well as Yankovic’s release strategy across the wild plains of the Internet. 

Even more impressive than that is Mandatory Fun now rests as the sole comedy album to reach the top of the charts this millennium as the last #1 comedy album was released in 1963 with Allan Sherman’s  My Son, The Nut.
