Recording Academy

The 62nd GRAMMY nominations have arrived, and for five comedians, their chances of winning GRAMMY Gold on Jan. 26 just got a lot better. Let's take a look at who is nominated this year in the GRAMMY's funniest category, Best Comedy Album.

Quality Time - Jim Gaffigan
Jim Gaffigan has been on a GRAMMY tear, earning his fifth nomination in eight years in the category with his latest special, Quality Time. His seventh special builds on Gaffigan's Midwestern everyman style with some of his more adventurous comedy yet, but will it be enough to bring him home his first GRAMMY win?

Relatable - Ellen DeGeneres
Comedian-turned-television superstar, Ellen DeGeneres returns to her roots for her first comedy special in 15 years. True to its moniker, Relatable shows DeGeneres' honest magnetism and range from simple and silly to deep and dark, always eliciting a laugh at life. This year's nod marks the third GRAMMY nomination of her career.

Right Now - Aziz Ansari
The Spike Jones-directed special showcases Aziz Ansari's special brand of modern edge perspective on a wide range of culture, race and social topics. Right Now drew enough laughs to gain Ansari his first career GRAMMY nomination.

Son Of Patricia - Trevor Noah
"The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah continues his global ascent into comedy's upper echelon with Son Of Patricia. Sprawling out from the tempral confines of his hosting show, the South African comedian dazzles on his way to his first career GRAMMY nomination.

Sticks & Stones - Dave Chappelle
The two-time defending champ in the Best Comedy Album category, the ever-innovative and boundary-pushing Dave Chappelle is going for a three-peat at the 62nd GRAMMYs. His latest album, Sticks & Stones, looks to join Equanimity & The Bird Revelation and The Age Of Spin & Deep In The Heart Of Texas with GRAMMY wins.
