Vote for The Best of Everything in Comedy in 2017

Welcome to our FOURTH Annual IBang Readers Choice Comedy Awards. We’ve scoured stages across country at clubs, festivals and in theaters for the best performers in comedy in 2017. We’ve watched stand up, television, movies, read books, seen specials, heard albums and more and published our top ten lists for everything in 2017 over the last two weeks. Those top ten lists are also the nominees for you to vote on, and that you’ve been voting on all week. Just to make this a little easier, we put all of the categories in one post so you can vote for all of them in one shot, but if you click on the title of each poll you can read more about all the nominees!

Thanks for voting and Happy New Year!

Voting Ends January 2nd all winners will be announced Wednesday, January 3th. We have plenty of non voting awards categories, and you can read them all here.

    The failing interbank called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Brake out political parody of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

    Norm Macdonald Hitler’s Dog, Gossip and Trickery was my favorite special this year but it was such a full year for comedy that it was hard to call.
