The comedian-singer's latest is the first chart-topping comedy album since 1963
After more than 30 years on the charts, comedian-singer "Weird Al" Yankovic earns his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as "Mandatory Fun" debuts atop the list. The first comedy set to top the chart since 1963, it logs the largest sales week for a comedy album since 1994.
Yankovic arrived on the Billboard 200 back on May 21, 1983 with his self-titled album, featuring "Ricky," his spoof of Toni Basil's No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single "Mickey."
