Here’s a preview! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0Gqq7xun8U

 

Combining two of his great loves – Weird Al Yankovic and Harry Potter – Steve Goodie creates an all-out musical performance with some killer lyrics and accordion skills. A show for children and adults alike, AL! The Weird Tribute is one you can sing along to, and get a bit raucous at a pre-noon showing.

Stretching Microsoft PowerPoint to its absolute limit, Goodie engages with the cartoon versions of Weird Al and Potter, controlling the slides in just his socks with remarkable pacing. What results is an incredibly charming show, made all the more intimate by Goodie’s positive energy and rapport with his first-name-basis crowd. Even if you arrive not knowing Goodie, you’ll leave as friends, warmed by his playful energy and musical talents – but don’t let him fool you, he’s a wizard on the accordion as well as the guitar.

If you’re a fan of either Weird Al or Harry Potter – or God forbid both – you’ll love this hour of high-energy entertainment. And while the content depends a little on your knowledge of Yankovic’s back catalogue, Goodie’s performance ensures the songs are kept current with references to TERFs and Twitter.

Goodie can be found promoting AL! The Weird Tribute and his earlier kids’ show Vampire’s Ball: Ultimate Halloween Party! across town and is a genuinely lovely guy who deserves Fringe recognition.
