Now is the perfect time to catch up on the best books, films, television shows, music and podcasts you might have missed. These albums will give you guaranteed laughs straight through your headphones.
Mitch Hedberg: Strategic Grill Locations
Fifty-odd minutes of late Hedberg’s dumb genius, like “I’m against picketing but I don’t know how to show it.”
Chris Rock: Bigger & Blacker
Produced by studio wiz Prince Paul, Rock intercuts his act with goofy skits – like the Clinton affair explained by Lil’ Kim.
Mike Nichols & Elaine May: Examine Doctors
Comedian John Mulaney has called this album’s closing bit “the happiest thing ever recorded”, and he’s not wrong.
Bruce McCulloch: Shame-Based Man
The Kids in the Hall icon’s cult fave includes his absurd classic Daves I Know and the best-ever song about Doors fans.
Maria Bamford: Unwanted Thoughts Syndrome
From her opening bit on baby Jesus, Bamford’s thousand-voice act is a liquid rainbow through your headphones.
