Alternative Tuesday trivia

Wherein I was going to skip this but while looking for something else I thought this would be quick and easy That's what she said


possible hint: from 1994-2004, the award was restricted to spoken word comedy albums and moved into the "spoken" field.

  1. Who won 5 consecutive Best Comedy Album Grammys in the sixties?

  2. Who won 3 consecutive Best Comedy Album Grammys in the seventies?

  3. Who won 3 (not consecutively) Best Comedy Album Grammys in the eighties?

  4. Who won the Best Comedy Album Grammy for 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993?

  5. For the years 2004-2008, this 2004 winner was the only winner not associated with a television show, even though the comedian's fame is due to a television channel.

1) If it wasn't Bob Newhart, screw 'em.

2) If it wasn't Richard Pryor, screw 'em.

3) If it wasn't Sam Kinison, screw 'em.

4) Weird Al? (though, if it's not him, no screwing necessary)

5) Dennis Leary, cause he's an Asshole (still).

(and how random was Dennis Leary as guest voice in this week's Simpsons?)

One correct and #5 is probably worded so poorly I probably wouldn't subtract points if I was keeping score.

Haven't watched the Simpson's in years.
