The AV Club just released the only best-of list I've been interested in reading this year. Their list of the Best Comedy Albums of 2011 features a lot of familiar names—Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, Amy Schumer, Norm Macdonald, Michael Ian Black, and it's unsurprisingly topped by Louis CK. I listen to a lot of comedy podcasts but rarely delve into albums; I'm going to start working my way through this list as soon as my bank account recovers from this weekend's Crafty Wonderland gift-buying binge. (Mom's getting screen-printed tea towels AGAIN.)
