You’ve had a long day, and you just want to sit back on the couch and laugh a little bit. Comedy is one of the most personal genres of entertainment, as emotional and disruptive as politics. Thank God, for the wide library of Netflix, which is here to benefit the majority of our giggling needs. Desiring a customary laugh-tracked sitcom? A more genuine, single-cam arrangement? A mockumentary? Netflix has always got you covered.

Here’s a list of the best comedy shows from Netflix to get you through your day with lots of laughter.

The Office

This show truly puts an engaging light on “mockumentary.” It emerged as a fantastically unique sitcom. No laugh track, no gathering of people applauding at each punchline. Each signal, outward appearance, and comment was important to the story. In the event that the discussion was going on away from plain view, the camera was there peering through a hole in the blinds. In the event that the characters were talking without their mikes, the camera was viewing from a far, leaving it upto the watcher to unravel what was happening. Every side look, punch or joke—every last bit of it was what made The Office so tempting.

Arrested Development

It’s hard to beat Arrested Development in terms of sheer work ethic. It’s difficult to beat Arrested Development as far as sheer hard working attitude is concerned. The initial three seasons of the ex-Fox comedy are as finely-calibrated comedy as you are ever likely to see. The story from Mitchell Hurwitz about a well off family who loses everything and the person who must choose the option to keep them all together (Jason Bateman) is a close ideal bit of comedic workmanship.

Parks And Recreation

Parks and Recreation is the rarest of breeds: the nearly conflict free sitcom. Sure there are minor conflicts that drive the action of Parks and Recreation – city council meetings that get out of hand, tense elections and the passing away of an excellent, angelic miniature horse.  In any case, Parks and Recreation is a comic drama about competent aggressive individuals who respect each other.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Tina Fey’s place is comic drama history was more than guaranteed after her spell on SNL and the production of the classic 30 Rock. Still be grateful she chose to not lay on her shrubs since now we have Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: pound for pound one of the most clever shows on TV. Certainly, there is an unpretentious, touching tale of victim empowerment here with the young, naive Kimmy Schmidt breaking away from a doomsday cult driven by Jon Hamm to move to the huge city. The genuine interest, however, is the jokes. And what’s more, what jokes they are! They come so quick and enraged and are so reliably funny that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a standout amongst the most pleasant viewing experience on Netflix or any other service.


Shameless grew out of relying on Macy to carry the show as the ensemble cast led by Emmy Rossum (Fiona) and Jeremy Allen White (Lip) took over the household. The narrative scope of the series in later seasons touches on the overwhelming realities of being in a poor household where you’re forced to grow up too fast. Seven seasons deep, this show still can surprise, disgust, and make you burst out laughing. There’s no shame in that.


Unless you’re 10 years old or have been living under a rock for the last two decades, you have likely seen Friends. I don’t have to sell you on this one. It’s Netflix comfort food. Throw it on while you cook and let Monica make you feel like a competent chef. Grab a pint of ice cream after a bad breakup and laugh at Ross. You need a show that you can watch over and over and feel perfectly good about not indecisively scrolling through the Netflix feed for hours.

Orange Is The New Black

Orange is the New Black began by charting Piper Chapman’s indoctrination into a women’s correctional facility. Yet the series has been steadily extending its boundaries to its strong supporting cast. Part of this show’s charm is not only in showing the growth of the characters that have been their from the start, but also meeting new people and seeing how they add to the mix. Orange is the New Black is one of the most extravagant, different, fulfilling character considers on the system, and it likewise happens to be truly damn clever when it needs to be, as well.
