We all know Drew's good friends with Al, but I got some inside scoop that he may be a Dr. Demento fan as well.
A week ago Monday, I played a show in Burbank, CA at a place right across from Warner Brothers Studios. Anyway, a lot of cool people were in the show (including yours truely of course, and a lot of people "in the biz" were there as well, including Drew Carey and a few of his production people.
Anyway I did my set which started off with the new TT song NEW HAMPSHIRE and concluded with everyone's favorite, DEBBIE. After I sat down, Drew came up to me and said he loved my set. i said thanks, and he left to continue watching the rest of the show.
At the end of the show, I went to talk to him and just about fell on the floor when he said, "Well you know I've heard your songs on Dr. Demento before."
"Really?" I said.
"Oh yeah. It's too bad he's off the air here though (meaning in Los Angeles) cause I used to listen to him every week."
Again I come back with, "Really?"
"Yeah I love Dr. Demento and I'm really good friends with "Weird Al". I was just in his video."
"I heard about that." Of course I knew he'd been in the vid for Pentiums, but in "Hollywood" people assume you A) Haven't heard or B) don't care.
We talked for a few more minutes with him commenting on my set saying how much he enjoyed it and I gave him a free copy of ALVIN, which he accepted graciously. Then we spilt up.
I usually see Drew once a week or so around Burbank here, I had just never met him. Now i can say hi when I see him and know he's a fam of Comedy Music like the rest of us!
just thought you'd like to know!
