Comedy shows are usually something extremely subjective. Some people like their jokes to be a bit more cerebral, some people love comedies that don’t take themselves too seriously. Some people can’t watch a show if it has a laughing track, some people don’t mind it at all. And while that does make it hard to determine whether a comedy show is going to be good for everyone, there’s no reason to not at least try.
Here’s some of the best recent comedy tv shows. In case you were looking for one.
Rick & Morty
If there’s ever a show that deserved its popularity, it’s this one. Not only does Rick & Morty manage to mix easy, childish jokes with more intelligent and clever ones, it also doesn’t milk out its premise and prefers quality of episodes over quantity. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to watch the wacky adventures of a genius granddad and his slightly mentally challenged grandson?
This show about Atlanta’s working class was made by Donald Glover, which means it’s going to be quite an experience. This show is truly surrealistic in each sense of the word and gets weirder and weirder as time goes on, but you can’t help but keep watching anyway.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
While this show has been going on for nearly 15 years, it’s so good that in those 15 years the writers changed absolutely nothing about the premise. You can watch a first season or last season episode and the general feel of the show will be the exact same. If a show is so good that it’s not forced to reinvent itself after 15 years, then you know it’s worth a watch.
Archer has been going on seemingly for forever, but this TV show about what can only be described as a drunk James Bond is still getting steady views. It’s currently doing its eight season and does try to mix it up every once in a while.
The Eric Andre Show
If you’re into absurdly weird humor, there’s nothing better out there than the Eric Andre show. And if Eric Andre himself isn’t convincing you that this will be good, always remember that this show also features a seemingly constantly-high Hannibal Burress.
Master of None
Aziz Ansari’s show has surprised friend and foe alike with how innovative it’s been to the comedy genre. I wouldn’t exactly call it art, but it’s pretty much the closest you can get when looking at TV shows. And while Aziz’s special brand of comedy might not be for everyone, the fact that this show manages to push the boundaries of a comedy sitcom episode after episode, warrants a solid viewing.
No one was really expecting a show about the Northern California tech revolution to be any good, especially as a comedy show, but boy were we wrong. Silicon Valley has truly become a show taht anyone should watch. It has amazing character development and just all-round top shelf satire going on. The cast is just perfect with eachother and it’s a wonderful experience to watch.
