1 The IT Crowd
This is a quintessentially awkward British sitcom about the lives of a group of nerdy workers who operate as a company’s IT department. There’s lots of tech-related humor but not ostracizing to people who don’t understand computers!
2 New Girl
Zooey Deschanel is at her most quirky and cute in this successful sitcom about a group of 20 somethings living together and trying their best to become fully adult!
3 Bob’s Burgers
Bob’s Burgers is probably everybody’s favorite animated show right now, and if you have seen it yet you are lucky that it is available to catch up on Netflix!
4 Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp
It’s the addition to the cult classic Wet Hot American Summer that we never knew we needed! Everybody is back, and they are all older, but somehow they seem even fresher and funnier than before!
5 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Tina Fey has knocked it out of the park once again with this comedy about a woman who is released from years of confinement and takes on the big wide world of New York City.
6 Grace and Frankie
Not since The Golden Girls has there been such a hilarious show about elderly women living together. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are an absolute dream team!
7 Peep Show
Another sitcom for those of you who revel in the sarcasm and awkwardness of modern British comedy: a hilariously cynical sitcom about two flatmates who couldn’t be more different.
8 BoJack Horseman
A Netflix original series, this is a hilarious adult animation about a horse actor who used to be A-list but whose life has become increasingly more depressing!
9 Doc Martin
A charming British drama/comedy set in a quaint seaside town about a Doctor who dislikes most of his patients and faints at the sight of blood!
10 Parks and Recreation
Amy Poehler has never been funnier as Leslie Knope, the kind hearted but rather hapless, member of the parks and recreation board in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana.
A really fun series starring Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen that pokes fun at the hipster, laid back way of life in Portland, Oregon.
12 Arrested Development
Arrested Development was something of a cult hit when it first came out, but since then it has gained a huge following and the most recent season made just for Netflix was so great.
Another adult animated series, this time a hilarious send up of the James Bond story, full of sex, drugs and rock and roll!
Any girl who misses the drama and comedy mix of the Sopranos will love Lilyhammer: a series about a former mobster who chooses to move to Norway as part of a witness protection program.
Do I really need to write an explanation about why you should be watching Louie? The guy is one of America’s hottest comedians right now; pretty much everything he touches turns to gold of late!
16 30 Rock
The show that sealed the deal for Tina Fey’s status as a national treasure. Relive all of the glory years of 30 Rock and fall in love with all the characters all over again!
17 Orange is the New Black
Sure, there is a lot of drama that goes down in OITNB, but there is also a shed load of comedy in every episode too. Sometimes the best humor comes from depressing situations!
Check the Netflix comedy listings too, because there might be a gem there just waiting for you.
