There are big network comedies that we’re all aware of like The Good Place and for the old folks out there, The Big Bang Theory. There are comedies that have been in our lives seemingly forever like South Park and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
There are comedies that internet assholes refuse to stop talking about like Rick and Morty and Big Mouth. There are comedies that are award worthy like Atlanta and Veep.
But here are the 9 funniest TV shows that you’re not watching:
1. I’m Sorry
I’m Sorry is a show starring Andrea Savage as a mother, a wife and most importantly, just an asshole. What would appear to be a family-friendly comedy is actually a borderline adult who makes the crassest jokes in the least appropriate times.
Growing up watching I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke show, it’s refreshing in today’s current state of dramatic television, to find a hilarious show in which the husband and wife are 1000% on the same page throughout and the drama doesn’t come from their internal relationship problems but from the outside every day struggles of being adult humans.
Rob Delaney who made a name for himself by being a weirdo on Twitter and Sharon Horgan who might be the funniest woman on planet Earth, join forces in a comedy in which a man goes to England on a business trip, has a one night stand
Catastrophe has all of the dark humor of a British comedy with Rob Delaney’s big gigantic head thrown right into the middle of it. Sharon Horgan is the true star as every scene she’s in is the best scene of the show.
3. At Home With Amy Sedaris
Amy Sedaris is the aunt that comes to the family already pretty tipsy but brings some home made sangria to drink when she gets there and gives everyone advice that they did not want or ask for.
Amy Sedaris has such a perfect understanding of the type of home cooking shows she’s mocking that if you don’t give this show your full attention then you might actually think you’re watching a
4. The Detour
Last week I was attempting to describe The Detour to a friend of mine and all I could come up with is that it’s pretty much like a live-action version of The Simpsons in which the husband fucks up repeatedly but the wife always forgive him and the two kids know
The family is constantly scamming and taking advantage of people while dealing with past criminal lives, dark secrets, random flashbacks and time jumps and again, annoying ass kids.
After a long day of working in your office job, you can sit down and turn to Comedy Central and watch a show about how miserable life is working in an office. It’s dark. It’s depressing. It’s hilarious.
Also, if you’re a stand up comedy nerd then you’ll appreciate that pretty much every actor in this series is a local comedian.
6. Joe Pera Talks With You
Joe Pera is a fucking psychopath. I don’t know what else to say about this man. He has mastered a character who is fascinated by the most hyper specific random things like iron and milk.
He is so commited to being socially stunted that even I’m not 1000% it’s a character. Joe Pera might just be a special needs man that someone foolishly put a microphone in front of and the rest is history. He’s like Nathan Fielder without all the charisma. He’s like a piece of looseleaf paper with significantly less interesting things to say.
7. The Detroiters
Unfortunately, The Detroiters only has two seasons before being
My man brought that same exact energy to The Detroiters and his co-star, Tim Robinson, is just as funny and what makes this show so ridiculous is that you can tell that these two are genuinely best friends and it’s one of the few shows that I wish I could just hang out on the set as they film this nonsense.
8. High Maintenance
High Maintenance is probably the objectively best television show on this list. It’s not in any way the funniest but this show tells beautiful stories all through the eyes of a bicycle riding drug dealer selling weed to all walks of life in New York.
Everyone stop reading this, hop on HBO Go and watch the episode ‘Grandpa’ which is entirely shot from the perspective of a dog and I think every single TV show should be filmed from the perspective of a dog.
9. Jon Glaser Loves Gear
I don’t know how to describe this show only then just explaining that in the first episode, Jon tries to get his wife to go on a camping trip for his new gear TV show, she refuses, so then he hires an actress to portray his wife on the show, his fake wife has a threesome with his co-host and his wife.
