Here Are Samples of All the Comedy Albums Nominated for the ‘Best Comedy Album’ Grammy Award
Nominees this year ranged from Jimmy Fallon's musical stylings, to Jack Black being Jack Black, to the always funny Jim Gaffigan:
Kathy Griffin – Kathy Griffin: Seaman First Class
The long-time comedic vet delivers a trademark performance, going after Miley Cyrus, Anderson Cooper, “The Real Houswives of Orange County,” among other ramblings.
Lewis Black – In God We Rust
Here, voice decibel level pioneer Lewis Black drops some truth bombs about the always dreaded Valentines Day
Jimmy Fallon – Blow Your Pants Off
This is a twelve-track studio album, featuring appearances from Justin Timberlake, Dave Matthews, and Paul McCartney. Many of the songs, as you may recall, are originally from “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”
Jim Gaffigan – Mr. Universe
Perhaps Mr. Gaffigan's finest work yet. Here is some disturbingly accurate musings about McDonalds.
Tenacious D – Rize of the Fenix
Jack Black has never been for everyone. But if you listen closely, he does say stuff worth saying.
Margaret Cho – Cho Dependent (Live in Concert)
Among other things, funnywoman Cho discusses her recent appearance on Dancing with the Stars. Seems like it was a good time.
