21 Only Fools and Horses

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' - thedoctor

True comedy gem by the Genius John Sullivan.

Best comedy of all time.

22 The Inbetweeners

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.

23 Parks and Recreation Parks and Recreation Parks and Recreation, informally known as Parks and Rec, is an American political comedy television sitcom starring Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, a perky, mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks Department of Pawnee, a fictional town in Indiana.

The best by far when it comes to straight comedy, friends and the others are more feel good shows but they deserve to be first.

I STILL wish this show would get the ratings it deserves. It works because it uses its characters so well, you laugh at them just making their way through life. The characters are all so kind towards one another. It's never really mean-spirited (after the admittedly terrible first season). Best characters are Ron Swanson, April Ludgate, and Andy Dwyer. Watch it, you'll love it! Start with season 2 though.

Great cast. Hilarious scripts and original, well written jokes! Warning: Intense Laughter may occur!

24 The Andy Griffith Show

I grew up on the re-runs of this excellent comedy. Each show have a take away ethical principle without being "preachy".

25 The King of Queens

Love love love this show doug as kevin james awesome

Best T.V. show ever so funny, good humour

26 That 70's Show

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 best comedy show of all time

You guys are unbelievable! This show is top 5 for sure! One of the best shows in history. I've seen every episode over and over again and I still cannot stop laughing watching it!

Should be top 10

27 Two and a Half Men Two and a Half Men Two and a Half Men is an American television sitcom that began broadcast on CBS on September 22, 2003, and ended on February 19, 2015 after twelve seasons.

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.

Charlie lives the perfect life. Different girl every night, beach-house in Malibu, filthy rich (talking about the character, not necessarily Charlie Sheen). But he does have to put up with his brother Alan and his nephew Jake. It all makes for a funny show, even more so when Jake wasn't such a half-man any more. - LukeDaDuke2

I've seen them all, laughed at all of the shows on the list. But this in particular just cracks me up every time. It's a great show and probably the funniest show made in the recent times. Its just amazing.

28 The Office (UK) The Office (UK)

The fact that the US version is rated higher than this upsets me, Ricky Gervais is a comedy genius

British comedy at its best. Cringe fest.

More than just a comedy... touching, brilliantly acted and bloody great.

Man this is funnie

29 Father Ted

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. - Martinglez

31 Malcolm in the Middle Malcolm in the Middle Malcolm in the Middle is an American television sitcom created by Linwood Boomer for the Fox Broadcasting Company . The series was first broadcast on January 9, 2000 and ended its six-year run on May 14, 2006, after seven seasons and 151 episodes . The series received critical acclaim and won a Peabody ...read more.

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.

Best show ever made

32 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

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...

33 Everybody Loves Raymond Everybody Loves Raymond

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 actors

This show sucks and is not funny at all. None of the characters are likable either. - RnBLover

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!

This is my favorite comedy show of all time. I have viewed every episode and have never seen a bad one! Low brow, slapstick, funny. I became "Bundified" from the very first episode! GO-O-O-O BUNDY'S! - Terrax

35 Full House Full House Full House is an American sitcom created by Jeff Franklin for ABC. The show chronicles a widowed father, Danny Tanner, who enlists his best friend and brother-in-law to help raise his three daughters.

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 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.

The twins were hella cute and funny

I love it

Hippie loves a yuppie and somehow they bring 2 hilarious families together. Classic! In my top 10 all time (my hippie wife's too).

South park should be number 1 and ed, edd n eddy should be number 2!

Cartoon Network's greatest show ever made. - nelsonerica

38 Curb Your Enthusiasm Curb Your Enthusiasm Curb Your Enthusiasm is an American comedy television series produced and broadcast by HBO that premiered on October 15, 2000. The series was created by Larry David, who stars as a fictionalized version of himself.

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

39 The Royle Family
40 Archer Archer

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 ever

How in the name of Kenny Loggins is Archer all the way back here? Funniest/smartest animated show in a long, long, LONG time! I emplore anybody who hasnt seen it, to do so now! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
