December’s starts tomorrow, and comedy nerds should begin to think about getting their stockings stuffed with some hilarious greats from this year. Today, Laughspin shared their picks for the 10 best comedy albums of 2011, and it’s an impressive bunch. You can listen to a few bits and check out the full list here.
Giant, well-deserved kudos to one of our favorites, Marc Maron, for nabbing the #1 spot. Witnessing his keynote address at the 2011 Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal was easily the highlight of my entire year to date.
Other titans who made the list that make me smile: Doug Stanhope, the ever-powerful Louis C.K. & comedy veteran Norm Macdonald. Norm is doing two shows at Cap City Comedy Club in Austin this week. Come get some of the funny world’s creme de la creme in your face this Friday & Saturday night.
Below, you can view a handheld video clip of Maron’s Montreal keynote, shot by a dude sitting in front of me, as he discusses the untimely passings of Robert Schimmel, Mike DeStefano, and Greg Giraldo.
