Comedian Bo Burnham is releasing his new special, what., on Tuesday (the 17th) for free on Youtube, and here's the first song from it. It's called "From God's Perspective," and it's a pretty perfect song for Christmastime.
The 2014 Grammy nominations were announced on Friday night, and that includes a couple comedy categories. Tig Notaro scored a nomination for Best Comedy Album for her release Live, which was recorded last August and involved her discussing her recent breast cancer diagnosis and other recent hardships to much acclaim.

Best Spoken Word Album (Includes Poetry, Audio Books & Storytelling) America Again: Re-becoming The Greatness We Never Weren't - Stephen Colbert Carrie And Me – Carol Burnett Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls – David Sedaris Still Foolin' 'Em - Billy Crystal Best Comedy [...]
From Anchorman 2's Australian premiere, here's Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner singing "Afternoon Delight." Nearly 10 years later, it still sounds so surprisingly good for an a cappella song from a group of comedians.
Sarah Silverman has a new standup special, We Are Miracles, premiering this Saturday on HBO, and she premiered a video for the song that closes the special, "Diva," on JASH today. It comes with helpful karaoke lyrics on screen, but I wouldn't commit to singing along in public until you see you where it goes.
Here's Yoko Ono and her Plastic Ono Band's new music video, "Bad Dancer," which features comedian Reggie Watts and Jimmy Fallon bandleader Questlove dancing alongside her in addition to Ad Rock & Mike D, Ani Taj & Dance Cartel, Greg Saunier, Heems, Josh Fox, Justin Vivian Bond, Roberta Flack, Yuka Honda & Miho Hatori, and of course, Ira Glass.
