“Weird Al” Yankovic is kicking off his Summer 2010 Tour right here in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on Wednesday, June 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. Produced by The Jefferson School’s Comedy at the Beach Committee, “Weird Al” will undoubtedly play to a sold-out crowd. Comedy at the Beach has brought top-quality comedic talent, such as Joan Rivers and Paula Poundstone, to the Delaware beaches for years. Tickets for this “family friendly” concert are priced at $45.00, $65.00, and $100, and may be purchased through www.ComedyAtTheBeach.org.

America’s foremost song parodist, “Weird Al” and his talented band put on a show with an appeal that spans generations, spoofing popular songs from past decades to today’s most current hits. From New Wave to Gangsta Rap, the comedy/music of Weird Al has sold millions of CDs and videos and has been recognized with multiple Grammy Awards. Seeing the “Weird Al” show live is a full multi-media extravaganza, complete with video, costume changes, and his full band.

In addition to enjoying a night of great musical entertainment, patrons will also have the chance to win some fabulous and generously donated raffle prizes, such as: a B & B Music guitar signed by “Weird Al”; a restaurant gift certificate bundle worth hundreds of dollars; a Baywood Greens golf outing for four; gorgeous jewelry from Bellinger’s Jewelers; Bad Hair Day!’s Queen for the Day spa package; a Bonkersville party for 20 children; a Nassau Valley Vineyard Tour and Tasting; and a 50/50 raffle. A food court will offer Kickin’ Chicken, Grotto Pizza, hot dogs, world-famous Sticky Toffee Pudding from Go Fish! British Fish & Chip Shoppe, and Dolle’s popcorn & candy. Soda, beer, wine, and the signature “Comedy Cocktail” will be served at the bars.

Comedy at the Beach is organized by The Jefferson School (TJS), the only independent, non-sectarian day school in Sussex County. Thanks to its generous financial aid program, TJS serves children, preschool to grade 8, from all income levels – providing a challenging and fun learning environment that is notable for its small, multi-age classes, tailored to the developmental needs of each child, and its cooperative learning philosophy.
