Stephen Colbert, Louis C.K., and Kathy Griffin walk into the Grammys. It's not the setup to a joke, but rather a tremendous honor: each of these comedians left with the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. They're just a few of the side-splitting nominees and winners featured on this list of the best comedy albums of the 2010s. Irreverent musicians, acerbic political experts, and standup legends also appear, all recognized as best 2010s album nominees.
It's difficult to pick the very best release on this list of the 2010s best comedy albums. Flight of the Conchords's album I Told You I Was Freaky is a fan-favorite. This hilarious recording was nominated for a Grammy in 2011, but it lost to Lewis Black's Stark Raving Black. Louis C.K. has also had several of his comedy albums nominated for awards.
Kathy Griffin has been nominated for a Best Comedy Album Grammy Award on many occasions and she took home the trophy for Calm Down Gurrl in 2014. Other ingenious albums featured on this list include Jim Gaffigan: Obsessed and Patton Oswalt's Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time.
