The Catholic Weird Al - Nick Alexander
FREE Catholic Classes
Ever since his appearances of EWTN's Life On The Rock, Nick Alexander has been in demand and is the top Catholic parodyist working today. He takes standard secular pop songs, and rewrites them so that they are devoutly Catholic and laugh-out-loud funny. People are attracted to the humor, regardless of their religious upbringing. Therefore, Nick's comedy albums--"A Time to Laugh" (2000), "Eternal Life: The Party Album" (2002), and Nick's latest--"I Wanna Be Debated" (2006), have served as powerful tools to foster positive conversations about the Catholic Christianity.
Nick Alexander is a convert to Catholicism, and a dynamic worship leader for many diverse Christian groups. Nick had occasionally written parody songs to sharpen his own songwriting skills. He would sing these songs every so often, when the opportunity arose. But Nick had never taken this side of his music seriously... he always saw it as a stepping stone for his "serious" works.
Then, he went to a Catholic Association of Musicians conference. It was after-hours at a Pizza Hut that Nick was handed a guitar and pushed to play his silly songs. The crowd was stunned with delight. Nobody had ever attempted what Nick had done before: a perfect blend of orthodoxy with humor. It was through the unanimous prompting of his peers that Nick felt encouraged to pursue an all-comedy recording.
One year after that event, Nick has released his first all-comedy CD. It contains ten parody songs and one serious praise/worship song. The songs range from the Sixties (i.e, "I Got You Saved") to the Nineties ("Tradition (500 Years)").
