TURLOCK -- The Stanislaus County Fair will get weird this year. "Weird Al" Yankovic, to be exact.
The performer, known for his spoofs of popular songs, will perform at the fair July 13. A shy, accordion-playing teenager, Yankovic got his start by sending his homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento radio show, the fair said in a news release.
He went on to become the biggest-selling comedy artist in history, with more than 12 million in album sales.
