Shows like 30 Rock: Best Written TV Comedies

Every year the Writers Guild of America singles out the best written comedies, and these shows have all received at least two nominations--with 30 Rock coming out on top with 8 nominations and 3 awards.

Amazon Original Comedy

While 'Betas' can't exactly be called original, it is certainly true that all the comedies on this list were produced by Amazon. Make sure to check out hidden gem 'Patriot', for a dark, wholly unique political caper.

Shows Like Lady Dynamite: Boundary Pushing Female Comedy

Female led comedies that tackle the thorny subjects of racism, sexism, and mental health -- all with a keen eye, and genuine warmth.

Shows Like Happily Divorced: Coming Out to the Family

A list of sitcoms that feature LGBTQ characters coming out to their parents (often Catholic), or long-term romantic partners.

Dark anti-sitcoms

If you love laugh tracks, studio audiences, and a tidy resolution at the end of every episode, these are definitely not the comedies for you--think Indie cinema not Big Bang Theory.

Dark Comedies about Existential Dread

These shows, heavy on depression and self-loathing, find the lighter side of existential dilemmas--a surprising number of great animated shows on this list.

Pitch Black Dark Comedies

A round up of comedies that find humor in death, existential despair, and failure.

Hooray for Soloway Shows

Soloway has broken boundaries left, right, and center since she entered the TV production game, and shows no signs of slowing down with new series 'Transparent' and 'I Love Dick' (officially the hardest show to talk about at work).

Shows Like You Arrested Development: Dysfunctional Family Comedies

Maybe it's thanksgiving and you need to put your family's dysfunction in perspective; this list of modern sitcoms, featuring the likes of 'Shameless' and 'Parenthood', may be a good place to start. Suddenly a couple drunk uncles and a recent divorce don't seem so bad!
