Over the last couple of years, there’s been an explosion of comedy gold. From TV, to standup, to podcasts, there’s just to much hilarious stuff happening these days. Speaking of which, here are my top 10 stand-up comedy albums of 2012. It’s tough to put them in order, because each record is the funniest thing I’ve heard all year at the moment I’m listening to it.
Just for reference, some of these records aren’t for the faint of heart – and some of the tracks in the accompanying playlist aren’t safe for work.

Jonah Ray – Hello, Mr. Magic Plane Person, Hello
Jim Gaffigan – Mr. Universe
James Adomian – Low Hangin Fruit
