It’s time for a laugh. And with the arrival of Seinfeld on Netflix, Ted Lasso Season 2 on Apple and Only Murders on Disney we think it’s a good time to share our comedy top ten. Oh, and Season 2 of The Great about to drop on StarzPlay. Huzzah!
Despite all the references to ‘jizz’, boners, and rampant teenage libidos, this show ultimately stands out as a warm, heartfelt celebration of teenage uncertainty and secondary school years. And it’s hilarious, too.
We’re not sure you’d be able to sell a ‘show about nothing’ these days. We’ve become far too comfortable with complex plots and high-octane drama. But Seinfeld isn’t of this era, in fact, you might even argue it’s from a better one.
Taskmaster has graduated from its pint-brandishing, balding roots on Dave to the sober, well-thatched Channel 4. The show already has nine seasons under its red velvet hat, and built up a broad audience of buffoonery-loving fans.
Bless Simon Bird. No matter how hard he tries he will always be the briefcase wanker from The Inbetweeners, won’t he? Sad though this may be, luckily Bird has already proven he’s no one trick pony, with another hilarious banger from Channel 4. Another sitcom, hm? Cool that sounds.
