[Editors note:  This was originally posted June 3, 2013.  We are reposting in honor of today being record store day.  Comedy records are records too! Support your local record stores!]

For over 60 years, the comedy album has been the best way for comedians to express whatever they wanted without direction from an executive or show runner. Even with the advent of new technologies, the album has stood the test of time, becoming a cornerstone in bringing their material directly to the public.  Some of the greatest comedy that has ever existed can be found on this list. Use it. Enjoy it. There is nothing on this list that will waste your time.
