    On a brand new episode of the Laughspin Podcast, I go off the rails just a tad on the Recording Academy and their insistence on nominating Kathy Griffin for a best comedy album Grammy every year despite her not releasing what I would consider a proper album.

    Recording Academy still nominating Kathy Griffin for Grammys, for some reason

    The Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences have once again, despite the huge amount of quality stand-up released in 2013, felt it necessary to laud Kathy Griffin in the best comedy album category. It’s the sixth year in a row they’ve done so.

    Recording Academy continues unhealthy Kathy Griffin obsession with fifth straight Grammy nomination

    For the fifth year in a row, the Recording Academy lazily pushed Kathy Griffin onto the list of nominees for Best Comedy Album, despite the fact that — once again — her “album” is nothing more than the completely censored audio ripped from her latest Bravo special. This time, it’s called Seaman 1st Class and as in the past, the “album” isn’t even broken down into tracks; it’s just one

    The folks at the Grammys have had a recent history of nominating some pretty questionable albums for their Best Comedy Album category. In 2008 they gave the award to Flight of the Conchords for their 23-minute EP The Distant Future (not an album). In 2009, George Lopez’s album Tall, Dark & Chicano was nominated, despite the fact it was only commercially available at the time of nomination on vinyl through
