Yankovic to Comedy Central

Weird Al concert film to cable network

Prepare to polka your eyes out: Comedy Central is set to distribute a concert film of “Weird Al” Yankovic’s latest tour.

“?’Weird Al’ Yankovic Live! — The Alpocalypse Tour” will preem Oct. 1, with the net distributing an extended cut of the show on DVD and Blu-ray (via Paramount Home Entertainment) and download-to-own platforms on Oct. 4.

“Alpocalypse” is Yankovic’s first studio album since 2006’s “Straight Outta Lynwood.”

One cut from the novelty-songwriter’s new album, “Perform This Way,” caused a stir when Yankovic was initially denied permission to parody the Lady Gaga track by a rep for the pop star. Spat was resolved amicably, and the song has been one of Yankovic’s most popular.
