Johnny Carson Award Announced For Comedy Awards


After letting us vote for Best Breakthrough Performer (The fact that Louis CK would only now be considered a breakthrough performer? I can’t even), the Comedy Awards announces The Johnny Carson Award For Comedic Excellence. The award will go to the comedian who “has made an extraordinary contribution to the art of comedy, whose impact and innovations have changed the comedy landscape and inspired future generations of entertainers.” Right, so Louis CK again then? In all seriousness though, after her documentary last year and her reportedly tumultuous relationship with the man himself, Joan Rivers seems like the obvious pick to take home the prize. Any other nominees you think should be in the running?
