Our Top Ten comedy downloads and CDs for 2020. As usual, no special order aside from Number 1.
Glenn Wool – Viva Forever – Stand Up! Records
When an offbeat stand-up comic meets his perfect audience you get a comedy gem like Glenn Wool Viva Forever. Full Review
Laurel and Hardy – The Definitive Restorations – Kit Parker Films / MVD
4 DVD set, an absolute must for comedy fans, film buffs, and, of course, afficionados of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Full Review
Pete Johannson – Passive Agressive Suicide Boy – Cottage Country Comedy
Pete Johansson can get serious but still be very funny. The title track is brilliant. His bit whether or not thinking about suicide is the same thing as being suicidal is a must. Full Review
Wendy Maybury – She’s Not From Around Here – Stand Up! Records
Maybury has an energy and persona that makes this Mp3 comedy download a happy listening experience in addition to the prerequisite laughs. Full Review
Jimmy Shubert – Zero Tolerance – Stand Up! Records
A new stand-up comedy download album by Jimmy Shubert is always a treat. Full review
Dwayne Kennedy – Who the Hell is Dwayne Kennedy – Oak Head Records
Dwayne Kennedy is a great stand-up comic. This comic simply blows away a San Francisco room of “liberals, fake liberals, wannabe liberals”. I cannot recommend this comedy album enough. Full Review
Darren Frost – Story Yelling – comedywhore.com
No top ten is complete without a Darren Frost release. Story Yelling is now my favorite of his downloads because the comic finally has an audience willing and able to go along for the ride. Full review
Cherith Fuller – Cool, Chill Girl – Jabroni Records
anybody who enjoys smart, well-written and told comic material will enjoy this MP3 album. Full Review
Kelli Dunham – Not the Gym Teacher – Comedy For People

Number 10 on our Top Ten Comedy albums for 2020 goes to those comedy albums we could not review because the label (hello, Gorilla Records, aspecialthing, and Blonde Medicine to name a few) will not allow review downloads. I am not a crook and cannot abide streaming links.

- 39 You do have to be in the mood to appreciate a ranting stand-up comic. If you are, there are none better than Jimmy Shubert. I’ve liked Shubert since I saw him years ago at Just For Laughs and heard his bit on the singing conjoined twins. A new stand-up…
- 39Solid comedy CD by an agressive and very funny comic.
- 38Glenn Wool s declamatory style takes a bit of getting used to and is a matter of taste. It is worth getting used to.
