The Best Dark Comedy Shows


Do you like comedy, but not like regular people? Do you find sad or awful situations to have a hilarious side to them? Is “dark” not necessarily a bad thing for you? Well do I have news for you!


There’s loads of comedy shows out there that explore the darker side of humor, and some of them are actually great. They’re well-written, have good jokes and actually involve character development and clever plots. Let’s take a look at some of the best ones below.



BoJack Horseman
He’s a horse that’s also an alcoholic ex-actor with self-destructive tendencies. What could possibly go wrong?



Rick And Morty
I doubt there’s much I need to say about this show. It’s good, watch it.

Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories
It’s just one of those typical Tim & Eric’s shows, but this one parodies horror shows. Worth watching.

It stars Frodo Baggins and he sees his neighbor’s dog as a grown man in a dog suit. Sounds like a good show premise, doesn’t it?



You’re The Worst
Two self-destructive people fall in love and try to make a relationship work. Sounds like the start of every good marriage, really.

South Park
This show will just mock everything and everyone, won’t it? It’s been going on for so long that even if you don’t like this brand of comedy, you should at least respect it.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
A story about five self-absorbed idiots that run an Irish pub, and it’s been going on for 14 seasons with no signs of slowing down. That’s when you know it’s good.

This is essentially a freakishly long Louis C.K. stand-up, so you should know what to expect.
