Shownotes

On the 271st episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins me to talk about Weird: The Al Yankovic story. A music biopic that absolutely tells the 100% real story of comedy music pioneer Weird Al. All of this definitely happened. Puzzle pieces include UHF, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, A Futile and Stupid Gesture and Wayne's World.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story and the movies we discuss!

Written by Eric Appel & Weird Al Yankovic

Directed by Eric Appel

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Evan Rachel Wood, Rainn Wilson, Weird Al Yankovic
