Stand up comedy is his forte and you will hear plenty of parodies which are suitable for family audiences. There is also a set suitable specifically for adult audiences.

Musical parodies may imitate or refer to the peculiar style of a composer or artist, or even a general style of music.

In a more contemporary usage, musical parody usually has humorous, even satirical intent. Familiar musical ideas or lyrics are lifted into a different, often incongruous, context. The 1950s saw the growth in popularity of the electric guitar (developed and popularised by Les Paul.
Paul’s hit records like “How High the Moon” and “The World Is Waiting for the Sunrise”, helped lead to the development of a specifically rock and roll style of playing based on exponents such as Chuck Berry, Link Wray and Scotty Moore. Chuck Berry is considered to be one of the pioneers of Rock and roll music. He refined and developed the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, focusing on teen life. He introduced guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music. (Wikipedia).
