About My Son, The Nut

My Son, the Nut is the third album by Allan Sherman, released by Warner Bros. Records in 1963. The album held the top spot on the Billboard Top 200 for nearly two months, from August 31 to October 25, 1963. It stayed on the charts for 140 weeks and sold 1.2 million copies. My Son, the Nut was also the last comedy album to hit #1 on the Billboard 200 for over half a century, until "Weird Al" Yankovic's Mandatory Fun in 2014. Sherman's first two albums had been filled with in-jokes about Jewish culture. With his third album, his parodies became more generic.
