This week, we are doing something a little different. It is our annual end of year stand-up comedy showcase! The whole team here at Maximum Fun combed through dozens and dozens of albums to bring you some of the best of 2021.
In a year that was extraordinarily difficult for stand-up comedy, that meant that some comedians got creative. We have albums recorded before the pandemic, albums recorded in front of only a handful of people and even one that was recorded at a drive-in! Our list includes industry veterans and up-and-coming talents you are going to love.
This is, of course, stand-up comedy, so we wanted to also give a heads up that we have bleeped the bad words and edited out obscenities. There is also content you will hear that touches on some mature topics.
