Catching up on a decade’s worth of comedy

I love to laugh.  OK, everybody loves to laugh.  Right?  Well, maybe not this guy.  And certainly not today.

But I digress. 

Somehow, I missed an entire decade’s worth of comedy.  Seriously.  There’s no good reason for it, but looking at the list of the best comedy albums of the decade, I have somehow missed all but two of these. 

And considering that these are the favorites of the über-funny folks at The Onion and its corresponding A.V. Club, I think I have some catching up to do.

At least two of the comedians on this list (George Carlin and Mitch Hedberg) are no longer with us, making the ’10s inherently less funny.

George Carlin: Hilarious in any decade

Thankfully, the best comedy is timeless.  And based on the writeups and corresponding audio samples with the article, the ’00s are worth revisiting in a big way.  Even if they didn’t seem quite so funny the first time around.
