The heyday of "Weird Al" may have arrived in the late '80s and early '90s, but unlike fellow comedic tastes of the MTV era – Carrot Top, Pauly Shore – the king of the proudly nerdy, odd and unstylish has never gone out of style.

If Tom Hanks is America's dad, then "Weird Al" feels like America's fun uncle – and the jovial jokester and crown prince of musical parody endures, debuting at the top of the Billboard Top 200 chart in 2014 with his latest album "Mandatory Fun," playing to a raucously entertained Summerfest crowd last year and just this week earning a Hollywood Walk of Fame star (news broken to him by Larry David). 

Need more evidence – preferably localized? Well, after already selling out his upcoming Milwaukee stop on "The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour" on Tuesday, April 10, The Pabst Theater announced that it's added a second show on Monday, April 9, at 8 p.m.

And while most "Weird Al" shows promise to be unusual and unlike your typical concert, this certain tour is even stranger than most – mostly because how unstrung it intends to be. Instead of the hit parody songs, costumes and video bits his shows are famed for, "The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour" is a bare-bones affair, with just Al Yankovic and his band performing exclusively non-parody material from his 14 studio albums, with a new set list promised for every night. 

"After 35 years of big productions, I just wanted to take it down a few notches and have a little musical palate cleanser," said Yankovic, in a October press release. "This show will be loose, unpredictable and maybe a bit sloppy – we’ll be making it up as we go along!"

Tickets for the additional second show will go on sale beginning at noon on Friday, Dec. 8. For more information on the show and tickets, visit The Pabst Theater's website

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
