Just in time for the resignation of the Pope, Whitest Kid U’ Know Trevor Moore just dropped a Pope-themed rap upon us. Moore will release a new comedy music album, Drunk Texts to Myself on March 26th. The album is a collection of Moore doing what he does best and that’s skewer pop culture, history, his mom, and Tom Hanks (why not?). Read the rest of this entry
The 55th Grammy Awards take place Feb. 10 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and allegedly the comedy segment will not be televised. What bullshit! The six badass comedians who are nominated for the Best Comedy Album include Jimmy Fallon, Margaret Cho, Lewis Black, Kathy Griffin, Jim Gaffigan and Tenacious D. These artists are leading the next wave of comedy, making millions laugh, yet the snobs at CBS are choosing not to air the comedy portion of the Grammys. Screw you man, or woman. Screw you both equally!
Each day leading up to the Grammys we are providing breakdowns and our favorite moments each nominated comedian’s albums. If you haven’t heard their newest album, don’t be scared.

On Kyle Kinane’s 2010 debut comedy album Death of The Party the comedian jokingly declared that his creative writing degree with pay for itself. Fast forward a few years ahead and though originally declared in a joking manner this is starting to prove true for Uncle Bar-B-Que and his dumb dumb stories.
Kinane is a contradiction of sorts, with glints of complete and totally intelligent thought juxtaposed with his schlubby looks, unkept beard, and blue collar demeanor. He’s the comical equivalent of your uncle with a fondess for Pabst Blue Ribbon and late night drunken shenanigans – the one you love to hang out with but he makes your parents nervous when the leave you alone with him. Even if you are a legal adult.
This contradiction is a line Kinane walks perfectly that allows him to drop a hilarious drunken dick joke and follow it up with a well-placed and thought out observation or phrase delivery. Kinane strives to be a better comedian and makes it pretty well known on Whiskey Icarus that he loves the art of comedy and works hard at it but like Louis C.K. once said, “you don’t have to be smart to laugh at a dick joke… but you’re an idiot if you don’t.” Read the rest of this entry
This past September comedian Rob Delaney self-released his own stand-up comedy special, Live At The Bowery Ballroom. Fast forward a few weeks and the audio version of the album will be released digitally via Comedy Central Records on November 13th.
What does this mean for you? Well that means you can get yourself some Delaney as you do your chores, go out for a jog, or commute to and from work. All while Delaney drops some knowledge on you about his sex life, being married, and perhaps a bit too much about his bodily fluids.
T.J. Miller is back. And by back, I mean never left the game. His show Mash Up has been a pretty great breath of fresh air to the Comedy Central lineup featuring comedians acting out their jokes as Miller’s offbeat sensibility keeps the show flowing.
Miller is releasing the audio from the show on November 13th called Mash Up AudioFile. It’s a collection of all Miller’s stand-up moments from the show. Comedy Central Records will digitally release the album.
Since Miller is also a fan of music, the album also has a few remixes of comedian who did guest stand-up moments including Hannibal Buress and Pete Holmes. Musician Steinski and Second City’s Jesse Case who also worked with Miller on his The Extended Play EP [TLB Review].
