Weird Al Yankovic's classic movie 'UHF' is celebrating their 30th Anniversary, and our local Alamo Drafthouse will be celebrating along with them.

There is no doubt that Weird Al is one of the most iconic names in comedy. The movie UHF is one of the many testaments to his true comedy genius.

"FACT: In the last several decades of our cultural history, NO ONE has provided more laughter and sheer, unbridled FUN than "Weird Al" Yankovic." the draft-house's Facebook event says, "Al's humble beginnings as a brilliant song parodist have led to platinum albums, three Grammy Awards, countless international tours and media appearances and -- last but not least -- the most hilarious movie to ever bust mankind's collective gut: UHF!"

The party starts at 7601 S Staples Street, Corpus Christi, Texas 78413.

Participants are encouraged to wear a Hawaiian shirt and to bring a spatula as fans of the cult classic cheer on "Weird Al" in his fight against the evil corporate overlords trying to take over his local UHF station.
