AL! The Weird Tribute (And How Daniel Radcliffe Got Mixed Up in This Nonsense)

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.

An all-out musical performance with killer lyrics and accordion skills

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.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter) and "Weird Al" Yankovic were destined to be together onstage, and now they are! Sort of. This loving tribute to two icons of entertainment will leave you giggling as your toes are tapping. American comedian/musician Steve Goodie brings it all together with songs and accordions and guitars and visual effects that cost many dozens of dollars, all for your amusement!
