Episode Summary

EDIT
All of Al's friends are talking about how great John Tesh is, and how they have seen him before. So, Al begins to lie and tells everyone that he knows John Tesh personally. His friends believe him, and ask Al to invite him over. Al tries to book him over, but that costs $82,000. So, Al does an infomercial, selling all kinds of junk. Through the infomercial, he gets $82,000. Later on, Al starts getting mail from his customers saying how his products don't even work, and they want their money back. So, Al is right back where he started.moreless

    Weird Al Yankovich is one of those few performers who manages to make every piece of his work one of a great genius. Songs, music videos, concerts, cameo appearances in movies, even starring in a movie himself. Weird Al had conquered a lot and one of the few things missing on his resume was a star of a children's variety show. Although, there is something Weird Al might want to have given a second thought to. If you want your show to survive for more than one season, don't have your first musical guest be the Barenaked Ladies because it will Never go over well with the F.C.C. for obvious reasons! Weird Al did a lot better with this second episode and made sure he had a man with a respectable name with respectable talent come on the air: John Tesh! Of course, the way he comes on the air is a very funny one at that! And this episode even includes the debut of the one, the only, Fatman! With Harvey the Wonder Hamster! Weird Al is inempt at really being an effectual superhero, but what he lacks in great powers, he makes up greatly with funny humor! And that's what this show is all about: it might give you a moral, but it will be sure to give you a funny time as well! That's why this show has become a cult favorite! That's why I like it! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless
