Episode 273: UHF

Special Guest: Jay Levey
Guest Co-Host: Skizz Cyzyk, Cecil Trachtenberg

"Weird Al" Yankovic stars as the hapless George Newman who turns his life around when he stumbles into owning a TV station in UHF. Somewhat lost among the blockbusters of 1989, the film has since been hailed as a comedy classic.

Director/co-writer Jay Levey discusses creating parody videos, managing Weird Al, and the creation of UHF.

Filmmaker Skizz Cyzyk and Good/Bad Flicks' Cecil Trachtenberg, two Close Personal Friends of Al, join Mike to discuss the film and Weird Al's career.
