Al’s first “comeback” album. This album sold even better than In 3-D did, and his video for Fat won him his second grammy. The weird trend in parodies this time around was songs which were covers of older songs (Bad being the only exception).
This was also Al’s only real album which he didn’t tour to support. He was actually given the invitation by Michael Jackson himself to be the opening band for his 1988 Europe tour, which Al had to turn down because his script for UHF had just been greenlit by Orion. Was that the right or the wrong career move for him - discuss? Despite that, a good portion of Even Worse did show up on later tours, including an INCREDIBLE performance of You Make Me (which is getting my vote!) when I saw him 3 weeks ago.
