It’s the show everybody* is talking about! From the Journal and Courier:

Comedy and music

Purdue University’s answer to “Weird Al” Yankovic will perform this weekend.

The musical comedy group Andy Ober Orchestra will perform with Ship of Fools, a long-standing Purdue improvisational comedy troupe, from 8 to 10 p.m. Friday at Matthews Hall, Room 210, on Purdue campus. Admission is free.

The Andy Ober Orchestra has original songs like “You’re the Bursar,” and it parodies tunes like “Pi Pi Pi” from NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” and “All the Music Sounds the Same,” the group’s take on the Cheers theme song.

The Ship of Fools’ portion of the program will be improv games similar to Whose Line Is It Anyway? For the rest of the semester, the Fools meet from 7 to 9 p.m. every Friday at Beering Hall, Room 2280. The public is invited to watch the games or try their own hand at performing.

Of course, “You’re the Bursar” is a parody of a Smash Mouth song, but who’s counting?

* For sufficiently narrow definitions of “everybody.”
