Jimmy Fallon’s Blow Your Pants Off has been named winner for Best Comedy Album at the GRAMMYs. The Late Night host bested Kathy Griffin’s Seaman 1st Class, who has had five nominations over the years and no wins.

“The winner didn’t even show up and the winner never shows up,” Griffin joked. “I’m here every year, hoping.”

Griffin joins other hopeful nominees Margaret Cho’s Cho Dependent (Live In Concert), Lewis Black’s In God We Rust, Jim Gaffigan’s Mr. Universe and Tenacious D’s Rize Of The Fenix.

In the spoken word category Janis Ian’s Society’s Child: My Autobiography took away the top award, besting works by Rachel Maddow, Ellen DeGeneres and former president Bill Clinton.
