It's often said that laughter is the best medicine. If that's true, then the comedians featured on this list should hold dozens of doctorates between them. These are the nominees and winners of the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album between 1990 and 1999 – in other words, this list features the very best comedy albums of the 1990s. Some of these 1990s best comedy albums were recorded at live standup shows, complete with off-the-cuff remarks and audience applause. Others use music as their comedic medium. But all of these acclaimed albums accomplish their main purpose: making listeners laugh.

You'll recognize plenty of names on this 1990s comedy albums list. Garrison Keillor, the Midwestern mastermind behind A Prairie Home Companion, had several Grammy-nominated releases in the 1990s, including More News from Lake Wobegon, Local Man Moves to the City, and Lake Wobegon USA. Adam Sandler was nominated for They're All Gonna Laugh at You! in 1995.

Jeff Foxworthy, the king of the redneck joke, was a favorite among comedy fans and Grammy voters in the '90s. Other notable Grammy-nominated comedy albums of the 1990s include Live From Hell by Sam Kinison and Martin Lawrence's Funk It.

It's up to you to determine which Grammy-recognized comedy album from the '90s deserves the top spot on this list. Make your voice heard by voting your favorites up towards number one.
