Ginger British Atheist Weird Al

I became aware of Tim Minchin this weekend, thanks to a spotlight on the musician-comedian in The New Yorker podcast. Presumably, there is an article about him in The New Yorker as well. As a Weird Al fan, I am entertained by his younger ginger British atheist counterpart.

“If I Didn’t Have You” is a great parody of a certain type of pop song.

 

“F*ck the Poor” is a harsh and funny take on materialism and guilt.

 

“Woody Allen Jesus” is an interesting choice for a Christmas song.

 

“White Wine in the Sun” is a more serious take on the Holidays, from an atheist who still likes Christmas.

 

“Storm” is a riff on homeopathic medicine in the style of a beat poem. And he made an animated video about it.

This will tide me over a little bit until South Park comes back.

About Thomas Mets

I’m a comic book fan, wannabe writer, politics buff and New Yorker. I don’t actually follow baseball. In the Estonian language, “Mets” simply means forest, or lousy sports team. Currently, I’m writing a few comic books about my grandparents’ experiences in Soviet Estonia for Grayhaven comics. You can email me at mistermets@gmail.com
