Dave Chappelle won the Best Comedy Album Grammy on Sunday for the second year in a row, beating Louis CK, among other contenders, with his What’s In A Name?
Chappelle’s fifth win in eight years and second in a row moves him into a tie with Richard Pryor and George Carlin for second-most career comedy Grammys. The latter holds the nominations record with 16. Bill Cosby remains the all-time leader in the category, winning seven times, including six straight from 1965-70.
Chappelle beat out fellow nominees Trevor Noah’s I Wish You Would, Wanda Sykes’ I’m An Entertainer, Chris Rock’s Selective Outrage, Sarah Silverman’s Someone You Love and Dave Chappelle’s What’s in a Name? for the prize.
Chappelle was not at Sunday’s pre-show ceremony at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
