The Five Best Comedy Specials of 2014

hannibal-buress-live-from-chicago.jpg
Yes, 2014 was a strange year for comedy, marred by scandal, controversy and the tragic loss of legendary talents. New comics seized the spotlight, blossoming into full-fledged stardom on the strength of career-best showcases, while others saw their acclaim diminish. Frankly, it made us shudder to see the lead-in photo of Bill Cosby from last year's list: Fittingly, Hannibal Buress, the comedian who launched a thousand think-pieces by refusing to remain silent about the accusations against Cosby, had a banner year. And then there were the specials: Whittling them down to the five best omits some fine hours of comedy: Specials like Patton Oswalt's Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time and Jim Gaffigan's Obsessed are worth seeking out, but lack the distinction of their finest work. Meanwhile, performers like Nick Offerman and Wyatt Cenac, whose American Ham and Brooklyn were released last year, seemed to merely coast off the goodwill of their TV careers, experimenting with interesting formats but mostly stumbling through laugh-free hours. All of the comedians listed here, however, are at the top of their respective games, turning in their funniest work yet.

2014: My Year in Geek, From Jodorowsky's Dune to Bill the Galactic Hero

Evil at its most charming was among the best of 2014.
In just over a week, 2014 will come to a close. That means it's time for that most joyous of traditions -- the year-end list! Everywhere you turn, lists of the best, the worst, the most and the least are springing up, informing you about all the cool shit that you missed or, more likely, giving you validation for the things you agree with and rage for the things you disagree with. Far be it from me to miss out on that fun! My 2014 was full of geeky joys, and these are some of my favorites.

Editor's note: It's time to put 2014 into the history books and look forward to 2015 -- but not before one last bash to kick off the transition in style, something you can plan with our New Year's Eve Guide listings. Do you have even bigger plans for the coming twelve months? Now's the time to start thinking about them. To help, five of our writers have laid out their goals for 2015. Find all of their bucket lists on the Show and Tell blog.

Make the world a better place, or make myself a better person? I think this list of projects, plans and goals will tackle both of those objectives - particularly number ten. If I can combine health, happiness and lots of beer, I think 2015 will be a great year.

In 2013, we've gone to Paris at the Denver Art Museum and invited the rest of the world in for the city's second Biennial of the Americas, visited galleries in garages and warehouses, and found unexpected art wheat-pasted on brick walls, projected from LED screens and gracing billboards. To be fair, this list could go a lot longer, but for the sake of brevity, here are some of our favorite art flashbacks, in chronological order. Feel free to chime in with yours.
