Hooooleeee smokes y’all, this was an amazing year for comedy. There were more tv shows, more movies, more Youtube sketches than ever that were created by funny ladies. Three of the five Grammy nominees for Comedy Album of the Year are women. And so many truly rad broads put out stand-up specials in 2016, everyone from super famous ladies with their own tv shows to up-and-comers just trying to make a buck.
So we’re just thrilled that the incomparable Brandie Posey put all those albums in a list and shared that list with us. Look, there’s a few more weeks in 2016 so it’s possible we’ll be adding to this list. And if you know an awesome lady-identifying stand-up who put out an album this year that we missed, give us a holler on Facebook or Twitter! We want to hear about her.
Read on for all the comedy dopeness, and click the titles to get the albums and watch the specials. Seriously, go buy the albums.
