NEW YORK — The notion that TV viewers need another awards show may be laughable.
Exactly. “The Comedy Awards,” which began last year, celebrates the art of comedy. And this year’s presentation, which airs at 9 p.m. Sunday on Comedy Central, is a funny affair packed with masters of mirthmaking, including Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Chris Parnell, Maya Rudolph, Adam Scott and Jim Carrey.
Taped April 28 at New York’s Hammerstein Auditorium, the gala event salutes comedy achievements in standup, TV, films and digital.
