The Grammy nominations were released today and yeah, Cardi B, A Star Is Born and all of that jazz. But we want to know what comedians pulled in nominations for Best Comedy Album. A field that seems to become more and more competitive every year with the release of what amounts to at least one stand-up special per week. While the stand-up special in and of itself isn’t eligible for Grammy consideration, a lot of these specials also receive an audio release which allow for that. And in some cases, afford for a dual Grammy and Emmy nominations.
So, here’s who was nominated for Best Comedy Album this year…
Patton Oswalt – Annihilation
Dave Chappelle – Equanimity & The Bird Revelation
Jim Gaffigan – Noble Ape
Fred Armisen – Standup for Drummers
Chris Rock- Tamborine
Also, Tiffany Haddish earned a nomination for her audiobook, The Last Black Unicorn
Who has your pick to take it all home this year?
