Top Ten Comedy Shows of All Timexdogg
The Top Ten
I love Friends show. It is like my best friend! I have it all loaded in my pc and I need to watch one episode daily at the end of my day. Its hilarious and you can totally connect to it. Even though it has been many years since it went off, it still feels like it's so new and contemporary. Its simply wow..! A real fun treat for 21 minutes..! It has got everything in it..! Makes you laugh and forget everything else you carry in your head.
True! And it's hard to watch just 1 episode. You will always be wanting to watch one more.
I was not even born when Friends came out in 1994 and in 2004 when it ends I was a little kid.. But then a started seeing it and.. Waoh now I really love it, I enjoy every time I see it!
The best comedy of all time. Is friends. My Favorited character. Is Ross he is so funny. And Every time. I see him he just makes me laugh
You have got to be kidding me. 6 Dopes...Only reason people watched is cause Jennifer Aniston is BEAUTIFULV 310 Comments
The Classic. This Sitcom raised the bar that not have reached yet. These people aren't held back by morals and standards and it's HILARIOUS! The unbeaten champion in the very end.
Seinfeld is the best show of all time. I can't stop watching it.
For a show about nothing, it sure was funny. Jerry, George, Kramer, and Elaine are the greatest comedy quartet of all time, each an iconic T.V. character. I could go on, but in the interest of being succinct... Yada yada yada, greatest T.V. comedy ever. - LukeDaDuke2
By far the most iconic group of friends of all time! Never fails to make me laugh. Kramer is probably the funniest guy to step foot on Earth.V 65 Comments
Peter Griffin made it BAD. For example:
1. He attacks his friends
2. He abuses his children
3. He abuses his wife - TheAwesomeDude54
the office?... friends?...
PETER GRIFFIN IS THE MAN! - uZi91
This is better than friends
The Inbetweeners, Malcolm In The Middle and Family Guy, my favorite series of all time.V 22 Comments
It's The Simpsons.
Better than family Guy - Winncon
Funniest show ever
There's a reason why it will have 25 seasons and over 550 episodes, because it's the best comedy show ever. No other show can compete with the amount of talent this show brings to ever episode.V 40 Comments
The sheltered lives of four friends, who combined know more than you could ever hope to learn in a 100 lifetimes... Assuming you had an additional 99 lifetimes, which you don't, rendering this conversation pointless. Bazinga! - LukeDaDuke2
The thing about many comedy sitcoms is there are a lot of other similar shows, but the the big bang theory is truly one of a kind.
It's gotta be the best series that was released ever
Though they are supposed to be called nerds, but this show portrays the hidden truth of the lives of them, and it really turns out to be hilarious. I can't think of any one reason why this show is 8th on this list ( as of now) may be it can get its much deserved #1 place.V 90 Comments
This is an adult show for 30 year old not kids it does this is one of the worst shows with family guy friends is the best ever
Who doesn't like it? Thanks to the show's crude and simple animation style, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are often able to produce new installments in a matter of days, allowing them to spoof current events as they unfold. - Mandy1995
Unlike Family Guy, this show is actually funny and the quality of the storyline and gags are outstanding for a cartoon, or for a comedy show in general.
The offensive, racist and sexist humor is by far the funniest kind of humor you can expect from a T.V. show. If I had to compare it to another show, all I can think of is "the Ali G Show", by the makers of Borat, Brüno and The Dictator.
South park rules... Friends sucks and how I met your mother wouldn't have crack'd the top 100 if it wasn't a primetime show that was airing right now, How I Met Your Mother will be forgotten in a couple years but south park will live forever as the pinnacle of television satire!V 42 Comments
Put it higher than the Big Bang Theory and Family Guy please. And, sorry Simpsons, which should be higher than Family Guy, but the Office is funnier. Maybe not better, but funnier.
That's what she said.
Seriously funny! Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute are hilariousV 76 Comments
That should be after Friends. It is LEGENDARY.
All Other Shows are LEGENDARY ADJACENT
Its Far too good
I am in love with it "
Can't compare it with any other show. It has always began with Laughter and ends with laughter
This show is just amazing and extremely funny.
The show is just amazingly funny, lively, well-written, clever, and legend-wait for it-dary!
Better than Friends.V 92 Comments
In all honesty, spongebob seasons 1-3 were the bomb! Nonstop funny. But then came the Spongebob Squarepants movie and it wasn't the same ever again. It got more kid friendly and corny that I just couldn't bear to watch it. Those first three seasons though were legendary.
Who lives in the pineapple under the sea?
Even adults will like it! There was a pretty good one in Christmas Who where Squidward said "I feel like a... I feel like a..." And then a donkey appears. Think about it.
Spongebob is an adventure show, he is water rated adventure show and not a comedy show.V 14 Comments
Great actors. Great scripts. Everything is perfect in this show. Just love it.
The best comedy show ever!
By far the best comedy show I have seen! Very funny with high quality humor.
A very decent and amazing comedy series that anyone, all age people could watch. They are like a real family!
It's an teen and adult show not meant for all ages, but teens and adults, it has sexual content and some bad words. - nelsonericaV 32 Comments
I can't believe sanitized and lame American comedy like Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Seinfeld and worst of all The Big Bang Theory is ranked above this. I guess seeing this on T.V. even today would blow the brains out from the bible-belt rednecks.
Truly a landmark show that still holds up today.
At least Saturday Night Live isn't on the top ten.. - tommydeath
The original, the best, the most inspiring and irreverant. Legends.
Best comedy series ever, I am only 19 and massively in to this show, the comedy proves to be timeless and has stood the grand test of time because they have a substantially large youthful fan base. This show has paved the way for more controversial styles of comedy, this really deserves to be number 1!
Class, the best of the best, but the current comedy trend is different, therefore with the current standards, I think monty python can't be compared with the present day shows, nonetheless for someone from the 70's and the 80's, this is the best.V 23 Comments
Comedy legends - John Belushi, Chris Farley, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, etc. All on one stage performing some of the most iconic comedy skits of all time
It's a show that is always relevant because it brings new comedians, new writers and makes comedy for new audiences constantly. A lot of people say that the first couple of seasons were the best but that's just a personal taste. Personally, I love people like Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen and Cecily Strong because their comedic style is a better fit for my taste. That's what is great about the show - if a comedian/cast doesn't do it for you, you will definitely find someone else that you like. By saying that the show sucks now, you are being disrespectful to the hard work of the current cast. The way SNL works is just unbelievable, it's just so physically demanding and nerve wracking, I don't think most people know how the show works and how difficult it is to be a part of it.
They've been running with some of the funniest skits for over 40 years. Not even the Simpsons can compare because SNL manages to be fresh and runs even longer.
SNL is straight up one of the best T.V. show comedies,it deserves at least a place in number 3 or 4.V 1 Comment
Smart and funny, great and creative -best
This is easily on par with Seinfeld, which I love.
Such a brilliant show. Intelligent and hilarious.
Should be on top list followd by Friends
The Inkeepers episode in the second season is perhaps the most hilarious of all the episodes. This show is an absolute classic, every episode will make you chuckle. Also look for the "oor Jam" in season 10 I think you won't stop laughing.V 10 Comments
Even though I will always enjoy Family guy, American Dad has always had the little something that made it more enjoyable for me and my family. Roger has to be one of my favourite animated characters ever.
Stan smith is legendary
American dad is family Guy's younger, wiser, more clever, and more funny brother, who happens to have better taste
Funniest animated show on T.V. right now. If only it was more popular than its inferior counterpart, Family Guy.V 2 Comments
This and Robot Chicken undoubtedly deserve higher placement on this list. However, Futurama furthered what Matt Groening accomplished even with the likes of the Simpsons, with utterly hilarious, but also well conceived, characters, and endlessly entertaining plotlines. The Simpsons is a classic, but which show is funnier, and more consistently so? Futurama. (Somebody with a profile, please, please, PLEASE post Aqua Teen Hunger Force. )
Smart, creative, hilarious, visually pleasing and a pop culture fan's delight. It's place on the list as of yet makes sense, though; most 'Family Guy' type audiences today ignore this comedy because it's typically non-offensive. That's why I like it; it doesn't (usually) try to be funny. It just uses setting and logical writing for humor.
The show should definitely be in the top ten. I've watched the series over six times, and I really like how it's funny every episode, yet it still can have meaning in its episodes.
Seasons 1-4 were perfect, but 5-8 were average at best with only a handful of good episodes. It should have not been revived to be honest.V 4 Comments
Anyone who's as baffled as I am about the fact that How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang are considered comedy (even good ones?! ) should give this a go. Definitely a fresh take on the writing, very original plots and characters. Takes time to adjust to the loudness and dysfunctionality of the folk, but proves to be good investment especially after 3rd season.
For a show about a bunch of psychopaths, it makes a damn good comedy. It really let's you look at what would happen if you took a situation from a 1 to and 100, and then made it a 0. From Dennis who is possibly a serial killer to the scatterbrained loveable drug addict Charlie, the characters are so well written I never feel like I'm watching a T.V. show, and thank god I am.
Nothing to learn, nothing to love. All you got to do is keep your brain in the refrigerator and watch this show, because the more you try to make sense of what the characters do, the more like them you will be. Classic comedy, great plots!
Without this show, we wouldn't have known who Charlie Day is; and that's a world I do not wish to know.V 15 Comments
Hideously unfunny show
just the best for everything the sound effects are also great
I cannot believe my eyes, the generation actually knows about good shows!?!?! - luisprado
Deserves to be in 1
This list is racist. First black show at 16. This should be in top 5 - westofohio
I don't know why this is only 33! This is easily the funniest T.V. show ever!
Will Smith at his best
Great and funny show!V 11 Comments
It should be up there is an awesome T.V. show
Seriously? #123? With 0% of the votes? Archer is a sure fire top ten. The first series is pure comedic gold. Best cartoon ever, and that's competing against South Park and Family Guy. So underrated.
41? This show is hilarious, a perfect balance between mature and immature.
Best show everV 1 Comment
By far my all time favorite comedy show! I pretty much watch it whenever it's on... I just love it.
every episode is just fantastic
This is such a time honored example of silliness, hilarity, and off the wall, outlandish television comedy. It should easily be included in any list of greatest comedy shows!
Who can forget Al Bundy. This show is such a classicV 9 Comments
GET THIS TO AT LEAST 25 PLEASE! - DLG
I really like it!
Was a good show - cameronduda4president
Perfect cast, perfect writing, perfect show. Så ikke tro noe annet
This my favorite show along with home improvement and the middle. My favorite character is Michelle. This will cheer you up after you watch it. I can relate this to myself and my family. Even my 8 year brother and cousin like this show. This is a perfect family show.
This is the best show ever!
Full House is so cheesy, but it's good for young families.
This show is so good! Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were young at the time but they were really good! It needs to be on T.V. more!
No it's not good, there are laugh tracks on almost every part & that just ruins the entertainment.V 8 Comments
I hope you guys are talking about the UK version, because it is absolutely amazing.
Greatest T.V. Show of all time. Didn't expect it to be this high but I'm happy
Why so low? You have flipping SOUTH PARK above this amazing show! It's brilliant, everyone of all ages (even though they may not admit it) loves the sarcastic and vulgar humour. It's one of the few shows I can watch every episode over and over again and it only seems to get more funny every time! Such a great show (the UK version obviously) :D
Like shameless the Yank version is bastardised version which should be destroyed, deleted beyond recovery from youtude, Amazon, Google, etc and the living swarn to secrecy.
However the origin is the dogs b - elfman73
Will hold up for ages in its humor
I have never laughed out loud so much as when I watch Malcolm in the Middle! The dialogue is so fast and witty that I have to keep rewinding it to hear the jokes I missed due to my laughter drowning the next scene out. Every line is written to perfection and delivered the same way. There are almost TOO MANY funny lines in most episodes that it seems like a waste to not spread them out over many more seasons. They take every possible situation to the extreme of both poles and deliver a perfect sarcastic, satirical experience.
It is the best show ever. There is no age restriction for shows like these. Wish they extended the show.
I have never met such a hilarious yet realistic plot with lines that guarantee instant laugh out loud from the viewers. It deserves to be on the top of this list.
So funny and clever! I can't believe that this is not rated higher! And the best about it: it works perfectly without these super-annoying audience laughter sounds.V 5 Comments
What is wrong with people! This is top ten for sure!
Good new tvshows
Love love love this show doug as kevin james awesome
Best T.V. show ever so funny, good humour
Have every episode on DVD. (Almost if I don't stop breaking them.) Really good comedy for everybody of all ages. - DLG
This show is so real and down to earth and relatable! Its hilarious too! Haha there will never be a great show like this in a long time. How I Met Your Mother and the big bang theory suck compared to Everybody loves Raymond!
Captures perfectly the humor to be found in the everyday irritations of real families. Amazingly just as relevant now, as when it was made.
The best comedy ever, real life situations with hilarious scenes and great actorsV 8 Comments
Loved it simply awesome
Bill, The Rape Star - lilrocketman
South park should be number 1 and ed, edd n eddy should be number 2!
Cartoon Network's greatest show ever made. - nelsonerica
The perfect comedy show with values.
Love this show
I grew up on the re-runs of this excellent comedy. Each show have a take away ethical principle without being "preachy".
Should be in number 1 it is cleaver comedy that americans can't understand that's why its not at number 1
It just makes me laugh a lot... that moment when they were chased by the police and realised they weren't... that time when Rodney fell off his chair in a church thing... and that time when paper flew from out of their window... it's all funny.
Best show ever, don't need to be an Englishman to enjoy this, this is great... My favorite episode Three for tea
It may not make people laugh as much but it is just better and more imaginative than the shows like family guy. I love the episode: 'To Hull and back' - thedoctorV 7 Comments
This show is awesome. Even the bad/antagonist characters are funny! - Solarian
Best show after friends. It's the most realistic sitcom ever
Why the actual HECK is this not number 1?! AND, where the HECK is Brooklyn Nine Nine
Every episode made me laughV 14 Comments
Easily the smartest, most thought-provoking comedy series of all time, and it only just finished it's 2nd season.
Most funniest show I have seen in my entire life. Greatest show of all time
Greatest show on television. Complex and witty.
Best Show I've come across which is smart, funny and oh the dark humor... Burrppp! Very witty... Pickle Rick...
this is the funniest show of al times! - flowerchild4eva
Probably the best British comedy of all time, Fawlty Towers isn't just plain stupid like a lot of other shows higher than it on this list, it is extremely intelligent humour.
Why is this so low? The big bang theory is terrible. Call me old fashioned, but aren't sitcoms meant to be funny?
The only way you wouldn't vote this #1 is if you never saw it. When I watch this show, I choke from laughing so hard!V 5 Comments
This is the only show other that Seinfeld that deserves being in the top 25 comedy shows of all time.
The funniest show ever made... EVER MADE... EVERRRRR
i also enjoy the office... how I met your mother... scrubs...
BUT THIS SHOW IS FAR SUPERIOR
I'm sorry, but this show isn't just a contender. There are so many jokes in this show you'll have to watch each individual episode thousands of times to get each joke and all of them are hilarious! There is no unfunny character on this show and no unfunny episode. If anyone wanted to try this show out, I would suggest watching the first 3 seasons first. The new season was ok but for me didn't quite cut it (i wish it did). There are so many great things about this show. Give it a try if you haven't!
Number 1! The best show ever! I watch it over and over again and there is always someting new! The lines, the facial and body language! And Jason Bateman's impecable delivery. Love it! I some times just start laughing out of remembering scenes! And it can be anywhere! My family and I can replicate a lot of scenes and we just laugh ourselves to tears!V 24 Comments
The person that did this list obviously never watched Chappelle's Show.
I never laughed harder.
Funniest show of all time. Made fun of different races, but only to show you how stupid each stereotype was. Neal and Dave are comedy legends.
This is not 42, at all. Dave Chappelle is a hilarious comedian. And every episode is so funny. Friends, Big Bang Theory, Scrubs, or any other stupid sitcom should not be in front of this show.!
Legendary comedy. One of a kind.V 1 Comment
Obviously the greatest Irish show of all time. I keep watching each episode over and over again and its still hilarious. Rip Dermont Morgan
I've watched every episode of this a hundred times, and it is still laugh out loud hilarious, the sign of a truly classic comedy! Without a doubt one of the greatest comedies of all time, and in my opinion it's the best ever made!
Under-ranked on this list because it is lesser known. Honestly the funniest show ever made by a long shot.
If I watched it every day, I would still laugh at it's whitty humour and hilarious plot lines. - MartinglezV 3 Comments
I love home improvement. It is such a good T.V. show. I can relate this to myself and my family. It always cheers me up after watching it. My 9 year old brother, my mom, and my dad like this show too.
How the hell can this legendary show be this low?
Really? How can this be below crap like Sponge Bob? THIS IS COMEDY KIDS! DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS?
Sweet and funny! Love it!
I used to what h it a lor but then I finisged all the episodes. shouldn't have been can elled so sokn - ihatetrump
If this show is not in the top 10 then this website is rubbish and useless
25? How can this be? This should be top 5 for sure, one of my favorite shows ever.
Between all the circles in the basement, Red's emphatic "dumbass" remarks, and a burnt-out hippie named Leo this show has some hilarious moments. The awesome intro song also by far the best for any T.V. show ever. - LukeDaDuke2
One of the funniest shows ever.V 12 Comments
For me the one of best comedy show ever.
This is my favourite show to watch especially when high. Not worth watching after Charlie dies though
I love this show! It's an amazing mix of dirty humour and amusing 'real life' situations. It's very enjoyable for a laugh and some fun! The entire show appears to be dedicated to making the audience laugh at the character's dilemmas and it is very amusing to see how everyone's situation entwines and makes into a large but hilarious plot. The entire cast is very amusing and their voices, attitudes, appearances and body language portray their characters to their full potential.
I can't believe this show isn't number 1, funniest you will ever see. The show is ingenious, dirty humor might make it awkward between you and your mom. Laugh out loud watch it. Watch watch watch watch watch watch watch watch watch watch which it know! Did I mention watch the show.V 42 Comments
This should be rank 2 after friends
Come on people!
What a classic.
Insanely funny and imaginative - wombat
Incredibly funny and smart - wombat
Laughed my ass off!
The IT crowd is sooo much better than the big bang theory. The IT crowd has likeable characters, and first and foremost, it is FUNNIERV 2 Comments
The only show starring Rowan Atkinson that is better that Mr Bean
This is definitely one of the funniest shows ever. Rowan Atkinson succeeds better in this show than any else playing a dumb prince of the English Royal Family in four different historical eras, of course causing all kinds of hilarious mishaps.
Actually Atkinson played the wily butler in most. It was Dr House aka Hugh Laurie who played the buffoon prince. Still I agree, most wonderful comedy ever.
Blackadder goes forth was so ahead of its time, the writing was incredible.V 1 Comment
Karma is a bitch!
Simple fun. Easy watch...
You end up loving the characters. Especially Darnell
Following Larry David in his semi-fictionalized life dealing with his wife, his manager, his manager's wife, and all the rest of the trouble he gets himself into on a day-to-day basis is always good for a laugh. - LukeDaDuke2
Its pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty good
Larry David is pure genius
