The Best Comedy Show On Netflix: There is a real scarcity of good comedy shows right now. The sense of actual comedy that makes you laugh so hard is missing now. It is a weird year for Netflix Comedy Shows. The Office was removed from their library, but they added some new shows as well. The thing is, Netflix will always have tons of shows to entertain us, but which of them are actually funny? We have compiled a list for you of the best Comedy shows on Netflix. You can watch them anytime and will still feel the same joy and laughter as watching it for the first time. So buckle up as these are the best drama TV shows on Netflix.
There is a real scarcity of crime-based satire funny shows. American Vandal is a perfect example of that. It is a parody of the Netflix crime show ‘Making A Murderer’. In 2 seasons combining 16 episodes, there was not a single moment that felt out of place. Everything is so well-written and executed, and we don’t see that from Netflix quite often. They perfectly parody the camerawork, dialogues, commentary, and every other thing you can think of. Just the idea of exploiting one of their most acclaimed show is commendable, but to make it this good. It surely is a job well done.
Billy On The Street
This is honestly one of the funniest Comedy shows on Netflix. I don’t know why people don’t talk about it more. These 42 episodes just consist of Billy Eichner being cut loose. He can say whatever he wants, he can do whatever he wants. And it works, there are genuinely so many laugh-out-louds moments in this series that you won’t be able to keep track. As the show continues it gets better and better. And Paul Rudd makes some random appearance here and there. And who doesn’t love Paul Rudd, right? He makes everything 100 times better.
Jane The Virgin
Jane The Virgin might look like a mainstream show that will rely on cheap gags at first. But it is so much better than that. There are real emotions here that you will definitely feel. It is not a mere comedy show it one of the best drama TV shows on Netflix. The first season is just a homerun. It is funny, emotional, quirky, and has cutting-edge drama. The second season gets a little bit repetitive, but it’s still so good that you should watch it.
The Good Place
The concept of ‘The Good Place’ is really good. And I think for that only it deserves a shoutout. But it isn’t just the concept. It is one of those shows that are Smart, witty, and funny for real. The first few episodes are a bit dull, but once it kicks off, it is a beautiful show. It will make you emotionally attached to the show and will make you care. The one thing that other comedy shows fail to do. If you can get through the first few episodes, you will be at the end of the show without even realizing it.
There is a reason why Netflix revived the series after almost a decade of its cancellation. The show debuted in 2003 and surely is one of the most conventional sitcoms ever. The thing that led to its cancellation was the time it was made. The show was way ahead of its time, and sometimes it works in the favor of the series, but here it didn’t. That’s why when Netflix announced that it will make a comeback, everyone was excited. Now, the 4th and 5th are not as good as the first three, but they are still good. The whole show is a delight and everyone should watch it.
Orange Is The New Black
This is one of the most underrated shows on Netflix. The premise, the characters, the plot, the development, everything is so good here. It focuses on every single character of the show and shows everyone’s backstory. It was like I was watching an anime in terms of backstory. The first two seasons are absolute class, the quality drops in the third season but it gets back on track in the fourth. I think the only problem with the show was the runtime of every episode. If you can sit for one hour for one episode, you should definitely give this a watch.
Rick And Morty
Rick And Morty is a cult classic. Absolutely one of the best drama TV shows on Netflix. You can see memes and quotes from the show on every social media handle. And you don’t get that much hype just by being average. It is like a slow burn. The first few episodes are slow and will make you adapt to it. But at the end of the first season, you will be completely hooked on to it. It is one of those shows that gets better with each passing episode.
Another animated show that has the world at its feet. This show doesn’t even let you adapt and is on the full pace from the first episode. The other thing than a comedy that this show excels in is the character development of the main character. Even though the main character is a half-horse, he is one of the most relatable people I have ever seen. The way it turned from a gag show to an actual show to care about is just amazing.
I don’t know why, But I absolutely love this show. Maybe it’s because of Emmy Rossum, but it doesn’t matter. There is a reason that the show ran for 11 seasons. The show is a perfect roller-coaster ride. The lows are low, but the highs are so good, that it outweighs the low. It is a perfect comedy show on Netflix to watch. It might be 11 seasons, but there are only 128 episodes, so give it a try.
Yes, I know that it is more of a romantic show, but the first season was pure comedy gold. The second season turned towards more of a drama serious vibes and is better than the first season. The mixture of comedy with serious elements makes the perfect balance that is very rare in recent shows. The charm of all three lead actors of the show is just amazing. It will hook you to your screen. It is one of the best drama TV shows on Netflix and it isn’t even up for debate. If you can handle explicit talks, you should definitely watch this show. It is beautiful and will make you laugh, angry, excited and at the end will leave a tear in your eye.
The End Of F***ing World
It is the same case as Sex Education. The second season was more of a lovable melodrama. But the dark and satirical comedy in the first season is unbeatable. The way they insert comedy between serious scenes without it being forced is commendable. Even the plot of the show is not like your basic teen romance drama. It is a breath of fresh air. The way both actors handled the roles given to them is just amazing. It is a must-watch if you are into dark and satirical comedy.
We are in the final phase of the list. Netflix just acquired FRIENDS, and fans were grateful for that. Friends were one of the first big Sitcoms. It ran over for 10 years and fans still watch it with some joy. People say that the show is overrated, but don’t let that fool you in any way. A show doesn’t get 10 seasons if it was overrated. There are pure moments of laughter, joy, crying and every other emotion you can feel. It is one of the best Comedy shows on Netflix, that you all should watch.
The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory is another big name in the sitcom genre. People say that the show is bad, but there is a reason it has 12 seasons. It can be your go-to show anytime and you won’t regret it. BBT is such a fun ride throughout. It went downhill for some time in between, but it gets back on track in no time. Yes, the show became repetitive after few seasons, but that is the case with every sitcom and the ending made up for it in every way.
Now, this is the best Comedy show on Netflix. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, hands down might be the best sitcom ever after Fleabag and The Office. It is a fun ride throughout. It takes few episodes to establish itself, but after that, it is the best thing you will ever see. The cast they assembled is just perfect. It is like that every actor was made for the character they were given. The eighth season of the show is coming out soon, so it is the perfect time to binge it.
