Allan Sherman

As "Weird Al" Yankovic's most obvious influence, Allan Sherman's legend looms large in the land of dementia. He is one of only three comedy artists to have placed an album in Billboard's list of the Top 100 Albums of all time. (My Son, The Nut was #1 for eight weeks in 1963. Vaughn Meader's The First Family stayed #1 for twelve weeks earlier that year, and Bob Newhart's The Button-Down Mind Of Bob Newhart was #1 for 14 weeks in 1960.)
