Despite all of my funny friends who recorded funny albums and submitted them for consideration by the Grammy Awards, the big-time awards continue to only have room for the big names in comedy.

But there will be no four-peat by Dave Chappelle. His only release this year was via YouTube. Chappelle won the category in 2020, 2019 and 2018.

Who is nominated for Best Comedy Album this year? 2017’s winner, Patton Oswalt, plus past nominee Jim Gaffigan, Jerry Seinfeld, and “newcomers” Bill Burr and Tiffany Haddish. Congrats to all! The winners will be announced Jan. 31, 2021, on CBS.
