Jimmy Fallon won the Grammy award for Best Comedy Album for his album "Blow Your Pants Off" in the non-televised portion of the ceremony on Sunday.

Fallon beat Margaret Cho, Lewis Black, Kathy Griffin, Jim Gaffigan and Tenacious D for the honor.

According to a tweet from the "Late Night" host, Fallon was at the New York City tavern Molly's when he heard that he won.

"Blow Your Pants Off" is a collection of remastered and remixed versions of the comedy tunes Fallon performed on "Late Night." Most of the tracks feature the show's house band The Roots (who were also nominated for a Grammy for their album "Undun"). Several guest musicians, including Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake and Eddie Vedder, also appear on the album.

Fallon's parodies and pastiches have been a defining staple of his show since it debuted in 2009. "Slow Jam the News," "History of Rap" and quirky mash-ups like "Reading Rainbow" in the style of The Doors have won him praise, and now, awards.

This album was Fallon's second Grammy nomination, his first being for his 2003 album "The Bathroom Wall."
