Shows like Fleabag: Best Dramedies

The ancient Greeks divided their plays into comedies and tragedies, but the smiling and frowning masks are more extremes of a spectrum than binary variables, and some of the best TV shows of the past two decades, like Fleabag, Atlanta, Succession, and Shameless, find humor in deep pain and poignancy in funny situations.

Shows Like Mystery Science Theater: Sci-Fi Comedy

Like 'Futurama' or 'Rick & Morty', but presumably with a bigger props department, these live action sci-fi comedies take space opera and superhero tropes and run with them.
