It’s a golden time for comedy TV shows, and it’s getting harder and harder to know what the funniest shows on TV are. Shows come and go so fast that it’s almost impossible for mere mortals to keep up, and most good shows are rarely the popular ones in the first place.
If you’re looking for some good laughs, these suggestions below might be a good place to start.
It’s a horse who used to be a sitcom star who has now reached the part in his career where no one wants to hire him for a new part. Also, did I mention he’s a horse? And he lives in a world where animals are just people. But there’s also regular people. It’s weird, but good.
The Eric Andre Show
Look, I’ll be honest – anything Eric Andre is going to be very weird. But if you’re into this kind of weird humor, I can guarantee you that Eric Andre is the best thing out there for you.
While the show has gone downhill in the more recent seasons, the first four or so seasons of this series are probably some of the best comedy ever seen on TV. It’s basically James Bond if they didn’t put so much effort into making his alcoholism look cool.
Rick And Morty
This show has gained quite a following online and is one the funniest things on air right now. Mix Back to the Future with the occasional Star Trek and copious amounts of liquor and nihilism on top of it, and you pretty much understand what this show is all about.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
This show has been going on for almost 15 years, pretty much doing the same thing for that entire period, and people still haven’t gotten bored of it. That can only mean that the thing you’re doing is pretty dang good, right?
You can pretty much see this is a modern version of Police Academy. Or maybe a CSI spinoff if the investigations were done by people who had no idea what they were doing.
The Good Place
Imagine going to Heaven but not really belonging there. Now you’re stuck in Heaven pretending to be someone you’re not, because you just discovered that the afterlife is a real thing and you might end up in Hell.
The Big Bang Theory
I mean, I can’t not mention this show, can I? They’ve been around for so long, sweeping up Emmy’s everywhere they go. I don’t like it as much as I used to, but I don’t like many things as much as I used to. It might not be the show’s fault, is what I’m saying.
