Though it’s hours before the Grammy Awards are set to broadcast live on CBS, we can report that Louis C.K. has snagged the Grammy for Best Comedy Album. His outstanding release Hilarious beat out Kathy Griffin, Weird Al Yankovic, Patton Oswalt and The Lonely Island.

You can check out our review of Hilarious here and listen to a track from the album below.

Moments after our posting, Louis C.K. took to Twitter for the first time since Dec. 21, 2011 to say this:

Im cooking rice green beans, steak for the kids (gf chicken fingers too) and someone just told me i won a Grammy. well golly.

He added a few minutes later:

Thank you to whoever decides to give those things to people. And thank you to people who buy things that i make and then laugh.

    the best thing about it is that he didn’t even bother going to that mindless celebrity circle jerk shitfest. it’s great that he knows spending time with his family is more important than spending time with egomaniacs and assclowns.

    Frankly, I see Louis C.K. as one of the best, if not THE best comedian of this generation. He’s down to earth, yet wildly intelligent, and he’s got a good personality. On top of all that, he knows what’s funny. Can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for us in the coming months.
