Top Ten Comedy Shows of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 M*A*S*H M*A*S*H

Seasons 1-3 were some of the funniest shows ever committed to film. After that, it became the 'Alan Alda show' and changed from a comedy with a little bit of drama into a drama with a little bit of comedy. It became unrecognizable from the original movie it was based upon.

The show is number 40 because hardly anyone has seen it. A crying shame, that!

The writing was extremely smart and witty.

Still Watch it every day even in 2117

42 The Three Stooges

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

43 Fawlty Towers

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 funniest sitcom ever created bar none

45 My Wife and Kids My Wife and Kids My Wife and Kids is an American television sitcom that ran on ABC from March 28, 2001, until May 17, 2005. Produced by Touchstone Television (now ABC Studios), it starred Damon Wayans and Tisha Campbell-Martin, and centers on the character of Michael Kyle, a loving husband and modern-day patriarch who more.

Was a good show really loved it.

46 Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.
47 Blackadder

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.

48 Chappelle's Show

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.!

Best show ever that's all I have to say

49 Robot Chicken Robot Chicken Robot Chicken is an American stop motion sketch comedy television series, created and executive produced by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with co-head writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root for Adult Swim.

Even though this show can be hit or miss, the writing is much better than that of lazy family guy who show full songs by conway twitty. That made me want to kill myself. Also, the office is the dumbest show I've ever seen. And friends was boring. - deadgrass27

50 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

I love these shows! It should be Number 1!

It is so good, but it should rather be #2 because SpongeBob is #1.

I want to thank all of you around the world! I love you

I love this show! It shold be Number 1!

51 Everybody Hates Chris Everybody Hates Chris

The best comedy show Chris rock has ever done. Funny as hell. Chris rock is simply awesome. Simply Terrific. The show is FUNNY, most of the shows listed are not as god as Everybody Hates Chris.

This show was funny and the constant reruns are proof of that.

To whole-heartedly enjoy this this show, you have to understand how it is growing up black... Best Show ever

54 Community Community Community is an American television sitcom created by Dan Harmon that aired on NBC and Yahoo! Screen from September 17, 2009 to June 2, 2015. The series follows an ensemble cast of characters played by Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, more.

I can't express how much I love this show, it is so original and different without being ridiculous and has so much fun and excitement in every episode without repeating itself. Has so many hilarious moments and scenarios that makes it fun to watch, I've watched so many comedies such as friends, scrubs, big bang theory, how I met your mother, modern family, Seinfeld, Simpsons and more but community is number one for me and it only has three seasons out. - DylanW96

The only reason this show isn't in the top 5 right now (like it should be) is because not many people have seen it. But this shows is HANDS DOWN my favorite show of all time. Classic characters that are new and refreshing. It's rolling on the floor laughing funny! Super original once you've watch it all you'll want to go to Greendale! - JaeDi

Fantastic Show. Brimming with originality and excellent concepts and with a fantastic team of actors and writers. The jokes and storylines are very funny and episodes can go into groundbreaking formats, yet still being down-to-earth and deep with feeling (eg: The stop-motion clay christmas episode). More people really should watch this show. - JoshGleek24

Seriously what. This should be in the top ten.

55 Liv and Maddie Liv and Maddie Liv and Maddie is a live-action Disney Channel sitcom that started on July 19, 2013, and ended on March 24, 2017. It is about two identical twin sisters named Olivia "Liv" Rooney and Madison "Maddie" Rooney (both portrayed by actress Dove Olivia Cameron; born in January 1996 as Chloe Celeste Hosterman) more.

Why is this on the list? This show has no comedy in it, it has pure bullcrap, stupid highschool girls who have no life, and hanging out with each others, they are lesbian, which is sexist, someone take this show off the list and cancel it PLEASE!

56 My Name Is Earl

Karma is a bitch!

Simple fun. Easy watch...

You end up loving the characters. Especially Darnell

60 Mr. Bean Mr. Bean The title character, played by Rowan Atkinson, is a childish buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and contrivances to everyday tasks. He lives alone at the address of Flat 2, 12 Arbour Road, Highbury, and is almost always seen in his trademark tweed jacket and a skinny red tie. He also usually more.

Mr Bean was such a great show. It brought so much comedy to us when we watch it. I wish that they could of made more episodes of Mr Bean so more people will watch the show. Some people watch Mr Bean on YouTube and some people have the DVD of Mr Bean. Anyway, Mr Bean is still one of the best comedy shows of all time.

Mr. Bean what to say just brilliant, Rowan Atkinson brilliant acting, deserves to be in top 10 surely.

This is one of the shows that every age still enjoys, it is fun for everyone as mr bean himself is most of the time the victim of all the bad things that happen and nothing else is ridiculed.

Mr Bean is one the best comedies I have ever must in top 10 for sure..
