Meet This Year's Most Hilarious People
While Comedy Awards doesn’t actually air until this Sunday night on Comedy Central, the winners were announced at a ceremony taped over the weekend, and we have to admit that we’re pretty pleased with the outcome. (Warning: Stop reading now if you’d like to be surprised when you watch — which we’re thinking you definitely should, based on this photo alone.) Sure, there were some egregious snubs in the nominations, but any show where Louis C.K. and Bridesmaids clean house and Parks & Recreation manages to win more awards than Modern Family is aces in our book. Also, a big congrats to longtime Flavorpill favorite Hannibal Buress, who beat out some serious competition to nab the award for Club Comic. Click through to view the full list of winners, which we spotted thanks to Splitsider, and let us know if you agree with their picks in the comments.
