Jon Benjamin (of Archer, Home Movies, countless other shows) is a tv news reporter of his own television show "Jon Benjamin Has a Van." This show parodies the documentary-style of television news reports. While engaging the viewer in an alternative comedy environment and surreal plotline, in the middle of the plot we are given non-related segments ilke "Hang up the phone" and "You can't shoot here"--where Jon Benjamin goes up to real people and gets them to confusingly hang up their phone while he tells them they're on a show called "Hang up the phone". Hilarious show that came out on 6-11 on comedy central.
This is easily the funniest "adultswim" show out right now. It's about a guy in the witness protection program that has to at all times wear a ski-mask and a voice modulator that makes his voice low in order to conceal his identity. 10 out of 10. Just Sooo funny, you will be quoting every line from Jon in every episode! "Hey Someone get this ******* Face Off!" Can't wait for season 3!
super funny show i really liked first 4 seasons , it specially funny nick, this show is made by bbc and it is really funny
How could you forget Castle, c'mon, just go check it out if you haven't seen it, it's at least funnier than any other show in this list!
Judd Apatow created this show in 2001-2002 and it is truly a classic. If you love college comedies, this needs to be on the list. Also with Seth Rogen, Jason Segal, Jay Baruchel and more...
This show is spectactular: a 10 out of 10. This show came out 2 months ago (June 2011). You can watch it on www.letmewatcthis.com. Its kindve like the "kenny vs spenny" idea, but Kenny tries to take on seemingly impossible feats by himself in this hilarious 5 out of 5 stars documentary-style comedy series. Kenny Hotz: Triumph of the Will!!!!! Watch it right now!
very funny show about a bunch of teens doing there last 2 years before they finish school, the cast changes every 2 seasons keeping it fresh, although you always find you self missing them once there gone.. after you have just gotten used to them
This show stars famous comedian friends of doug benson's: while they perform their act, doug benson interrupts them. For example, on one episode Brian Posehn said "Recently, I had a baby--" and Doug Benson interrupts with "Oh really, noone has those". Doug Benson is easily the funniest comedian on planet earth. His documentary "super high me" is one of the greatest documentaries of all-time. Unfortunately the show got canceled because they were premiering this show at midnight and all six episodes started at midnight--I appreciate it Comedy Central, thanks for giving him a decent time slot. You can purchase episodes on Amazon. He has guests like Nick Swardson, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Eugene Mirman, Chris Hardwick, Todd Barry, The Sklar Brothers, Thomas Lennon, Michael Ian Black, Adamn Carolla, and Andy Daly
Funniest sketch comedy ever to run on tv. Canceled after one season on the Comedy Network because nobody watched it. You can find it online on the Comedy Network's website. Everyone should watch this, especially if they think they've already found the funniest show.
This is a really funny show about a catering business. It stars Adam Scott, Ken Marina and Lizzy Caplan. I'm not saying that this show should be in the top ten or anything... but it's funnier than a lot of the shows on this list.
A dirtier and more provocative version of Ellen, full of hilarious jokes and ranchy situations. Graham gets the guests do things they would never do and tell the most embarassing stories of their lives. Packed with inuendos, slippery jokes and pranks, this talk show definetly stretches the sensorship on television. Graham's camp style and ability to create a pleasent and safe atmosphere where guest feel at ease, brings an unforgettable experience to all audiences (of age).
I remember watching episodes of this Canadian comedy show on Comedy Central. The show was hilarious, and the crew of actors are still memorable to this day. Excellent comedy that sometimes went a bit weird but was always fun.
A dysfunctional family and the situations the show dealt with were often serious and dark and unusual for network sitcom fare, including death, attempted and committed suicide, rape, child molestation, mental illness, road rage, violence, drug abuse, domestic abuse, alcoholism, and terrorism—especially in the third season, which was to be the last (partly due to the controversial nature of the show).
This is one of the funniest British Comedy's of all time, Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are one of the best comedy duo's.
The major thread of the series was that a couple were brought together in a marriage of convenience—Ned Dorsey (Church) needed to be married to get a promotion at work, while Stacey Colbert (Messing) desperately needed to move out of her parents' house, and Ned had a very good apartment.
A young Hugh Laurie(Dr House M.D) and Stephen Fry at some of their very best in this series dramatization of the works of P.G Wodehouse
This show is about a man called donald who inherits his grandmothers house!
A very funny series about Jess who broke up with her boyfriend and need a New place to stay, and ends up In a loft with three oter guys. But Jess is a bit wierd, and so is her roommates, wich make an hilarious show!
something completely different - a formula that can almost never grow stale. always hilarious.
Bernard Black, crazy, drinking, smoking, Irish, used bookstore owner in England. Fran has a shop selling lots of **** next door and also likes to drink a lot of wine with Bernard (Irish Book owner) Manny in the first episode. Just watch it! It is soooo funny. I still laugh and I have seen them many times. Everyone we show it to ends up buying the whole series!
This show was way ahead of its time. Canceled after just 9 episodes but there all hilarious!
Outsourced is set in a call center in Mumbai, India, where an American novelties company has recently outsourced its order processing. A lone American manages the call center and must explain American popular culture to his employees as he tries to understand Indian culture.
You really need to pay attention to the comedy skills of Larry Hagman. Every move, expression...just genius. Could hardly believe he was the same actor as JR Ewing. He was a brilliant actor. And Barbara Eden as Jeannie, just perfect. Cute, sexy and funny. This show will make you smile.
Short lived series on comedy central from the producers of Da Ali G Show and one of Zach Galifanakisdfiohasifd's first widely seen public appearances. The show is based on a team of actors pretending to be a legitimate news team acting incredibly inappropriately to their guests and hired specialists to help them improve their show, that isn't real but besides the news team no one has any idea that the show isn't a real news cast. Constant laughter.
Come on this show is so funny. It's a little bit like my life. Without the burglary. If you haven't watched this you are either boring or unfortunate
Damn suprised dis wasnt on da damn list in da first place...yall trippin...dis **** was shoulda been in da top 20 at least...every character gave 110 percent even da other characters lawrence played. Neva a dull episode.
if i need to explain why this show is the best then you are beyond help. Only now, 20 years later, are other comedy shows beginning emulate it's variety, insanity and incomparable brilliance. Maybe a reunion this year.
FUNNY! ADDED TO THE LIST BY MEHONAL MANY FAMOUS PPL TO ROB... BUT IS SOOOOO FUNNNNYYYY
From the award-winning team behind Smack the Pony comes this quick-fire (and occasionally slow motion) genre-defying comedy, set in a surreal hospital, despite no discernible medical content
