Shows like Mr Show: Cultiest of Cult Comedy Shows

Oh, you haven't heard of Mr Show? Or Stella? No, it's cool, honestly - I hope you enjoy cracking up to 'Big Bang Theory', chugging Arnold Palmers on your Laz E Boy, you pathetic, mainstream PoS.

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 Flight of the Concords: Comedy from Down Under

Shows like Ted Lasso: Optimistic and Kind Comedies

These feel-good series avoid the cynicism, snark and dark comedy prevalent among "prestige" comedies, and instead offer optimism, genuine friendship, kindness, and gentle good humor.

Shows like Louie: Dark Comedies about Existential Dread

These shows, heavy on depression and self-loathing, find the lighter side of existential dilemmas.
