The Sound of Young America: Best Comedy of 2010

Episode 168

27th December 2010

Our special highlighting the best comedy of the year, including Kyle Kinane, Paul F. Tompkins, Karen Kilgariff, Kasper Hauser, Hannibal Buress, The State, Nick Thune, Aziz Ansari, Mike Phirman and more.

Episode notes

To close out the calendar year, we’ve chosen some of our favorite comedy of 2010 from material released by a bunch of stand up comedians and sketch groups. Several of the performers featured were interviewed on our show this year, and even more have contributed or been interviewed in the past — so the fun doesn’t have to stop here, if you dig into the back catalogue!

And if you’re interested in hearing more from any of the above, I suggest starting with these…
