This week, we are doing something a little different. It is our annual end of year best stand-up comedy showcase! The whole team here at Maximum Fun combed through dozens and dozens of albums to bring you some of the best of 2021.
In a year that was extraordinarily difficult for stand-up comedy, that meant that some comedians got creative. We have albums recorded before the pandemic, albums recorded in front of only a handful of people and even one that was recorded at a drive-in! Our list includes industry veterans and up-and-coming talents you are going to love.
This is, of course, stand-up comedy, so we wanted to also give a heads up that we have bleeped the bad words and edited out obscenities. There is also content you will hear that touches on some mature topics.
Let us know what your favorite stand-up albums of the year were. Did we miss someone? We want to know! Sound off on Twitter @Bullseye or on Facebook!
