Binge-watched all your favorite shows in one day? Don't worry, we're not judging. And lucky for you, we've compiled a list of the best comedy shows on Hulu that are about to bring your lazy days at home to the next level. From comedic classics to up-and-coming series, prepare for a whole lot of laughs…

Happy Endings

Release Date: 2011

IMDB: 7.8

Watch on HULU

All of us have lost friends due to broken romantic relationships (if you haven’t, you’re luckier than you think). But it doesn’t have to be like that, as Dave and Alex from Happy Endings show us. They were the couple who seemed to have it all and were quite literally the people holding their tribe of friends together. But when their relationship suddenly falls apart at the altar, things don’t take a good turn. But understanding that their tribe needed them more than either of them thought, the two must put aside their past and adjust to their new reality. After all, what are friends for?

Party Down

Release Date: 2009

IMDB: 8.2

Watch on HULU

Desperately waiting for their shot at fame in Hollywood, six wannabe actors try o make ends meet by working for a Los Angeles catering company. But the Party Down Catering company dabbles in more than just catering – and the show captures the actors’ experiences while handling a senior singles mixer, an after party for porn awards, and unlikely events of the sort. This might sound weird, but it is a true gem of a comedy. With its dialogues and script largely defined by off-the-cuff improv, this is a completely unique show that works.

Mr. Mayor

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 6.3

Watch on HULU

Neil Bremer has done it all – retired with a successful business, a happy family, and people who love him not just for his money. So, when he decides to run for the position of mayor in Los Angeles, he has no expectations of doing great. But the twist of the show Mr. Mayor is that he wins and that he has a lot of stepping up to do. But he knows he can rely on his friend Arpi, a political veteran with large ambitions for the city, dedicated staff to help with the minor details, and his teenage daughter, to provide him with the support to push through when he needs it.

The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Release Date: 1970

IMDB: 8.2

Watch on HULU

Mary Richards wants to piece her life back after a bad breakup and is desperately looking for something to take her mind off of it. Luckily (or unluckily), she lands a job as associate producer of the evening news at WJM-TV. Is it good enough though, since it’s the lowest-rated station in Minneapolis? Showcasing her life and rise during her time at work, The Mary Tyler Moore Show has an exceptional ensemble and witty writing that makes it a show you will remember, even if it is from a time long ago. Give it a chance, and you will not be disappointed.

Abbott Elementary

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 8.2

Watch on HULU

Abbott Elementary is a real heart-warmer kind of show – the overall premise is simple, but the honest actions of the cast will keep you wishing for more seasons to come. Based on the lives of schoolteachers in a Philadelphia public school, where the odds are stacked against them in terms of resources and funds, these teachers go above and beyond to do what’s right for their students. Abbott Elementary is one of the best surprises of the television year so far, according to one Rotten Tomatoes critic, and we second their opinion. With a fine balance between humor and heart, this show is one that will etch its mark in television history.

Lodge 49

Release Date: 2018 - 2019

IMDB: 7.6

Watch on HULU

Dud is exactly the kind of person his name states – a dud of a person with no idea of how to handle tomorrow. It is only by chance that he stumbles upon a rundown lodge, whose members offer him a safe space he never knew he needed. What Lodge 49 manages to do for Dud, we wish we could have access just as easily. Though you may have to wait for the show to gain momentum, there is much waiting for those who manage to stick with it. Lodge 49 is a show to be watched casually, with no particular objective in mind. Maybe that’s why it sticks so well in our heads because it just asks us to be there.

Man Seeking Woman

Release Date: 2015

IMDB: 7.7

Watch on HULU

Josh Greenberg is not a man with the best luck in the women's department – he just can’t seem to find true love because he is too afraid to approach women. Despite the encouragement of his polar opposite best friend Mike, his career-successful sister and his parents, he just can’t seem to get his act together. When he does chance upon the opportunity to find true love, he finds out that true love is more than just the fluffy image – it comes with a serious commitment to change oneself for the sake of the other. Jay Baruchel seems perfect for this role, and his performance is oddly enjoyable and keeps us watching episode after episode.

Life & Beth

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 6.6

Watch on HULU

We were quite unsure about Life & Beth because the premise seemed to offer very little. But Amy Schumer’s performance as the lead wiped away all doubts. Beth seems to have it all – a successful job, a wonderfully long and happy relationship and a solid life in Manhattan. But the show starts with her having to revisit her past when her mom passes away. This unexpectedly changes her life, and it changes it forever. The show takes its time, but it’s a well-conceptualized picture of existentialism and personal awakening that reveals itself at the end.

Only Murders in the Building

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 8.1

Watch on HULU

Only Murders in the Building is an outstanding show according to us, and it's because of its absurd approach to true crime. Charles-Haden, Oliver and Mabel have a common interest in true crime and find themselves unexpectedly landing into one. A gruesome death occurs in their elite Upper West Side building, and the trio gets right into the investigation. They must soon discover who the killer is before it’s too late. There are almost no flaws with this show, and there’s no scenario where you won’t be charmed away by this trio.

Woke

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 6.3

Watch on HULU

Woke follows the life of Keef, an African American cartoonist walking the path to becoming a mainstream success. But a run-in with the police puts a different lens on the way he views the world. His direct and personal brush with racism now takes him down a new path, channeling his creative energy in awoke, provocative way. The show ends up becoming a commentary about current politics and the comedy of human interactions. But the heavy topics are balanced with the light, messy conversations that hold a depth of their own. We guarantee that this show has powerful humor that will leave an impact.

The Great

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 8.2

Watch on HULU

We love The Great because of what it stands for – a strong woman controlling the entirety of Russia when the country called for it. Catherine, the protagonist of the show, is married to Peter, the Emperor of Russia. But she soon finds out that this man is not fit to run the empire and plans her coup to become the Empress of the land. Catherine the Great now contends with ruling the land and the war with Sweden. The show is hilarious, to say the least, and the high energy seems just right for our screens.

Dollface

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 7.5

Watch on HULU

Dollface is a story of exploration amidst personal tragedy, but it’s told in an incredibly fun way. When Jules finds out that her long-time boyfriend wants to end their relationship, she is forced to rekindle old relationships with her friends of long past, who she left behind for love. The simplicity of this show is the real attraction, and the well-played-out minor details landed well during our binge. Kat Dennings is the real meat of the show, and it is her droll comedic persona that makes this show all the more enjoyable.

Reservation Dogs

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 8.1

Watch on HULU

Reservation Dogs is dark in its approach to humor, but the elements of drama keep us to our seats and playing the next episode. Based on the life of four indigenous, delinquent boys living off the reservation in Oklahoma, and their small-time criminal activities to gather resources to get to California, a land that brims of opportunity when compared to their land. Taiki Waititi’s representation of boyhood in an Indian Reservation area is quirky and original, you will agree with us. We’re fairly certain that a show of this kind is a new entrant to a streaming platform, and we’re glad for this breath of fresh air.

Shrill

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 7.4

Watch on HULU

Shrill may seem like a story about a full-figured woman navigating through a tumultuous career, but underneath the surface, it is much more than that. The well-written social commentary, placed throughout Annie’s journey of self-discovery enforces the idea that one size does not fit everyone when matters of self-acceptance are put forth. Annie has more than just her career to deal with- she must help out with her sick parent, a number of bad boyfriends, and a boss who likes nothing less than perfection. The authentic attempt to be an inclusive show is much welcome, and you won’t notice the time fly by through this show.

High Fidelity

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 7.7

Watch on HULU

High Fidelity brings to us a unique blend of romance, music, drama, and comedy, and this refreshing packaging presented to us through the character of Rob, played by Zoë Kravitz, is a delight to watch. Her revisiting of past relationships is presented in a way that is relatable to our daily lives, and the stressing of the importance of music in our emotional state and outlook is well portrayed. We’re actively on the waitlist of those who want to get their hands on the second season, and we’re ready to even open a petition for it to release sooner.

Future Man

Release Date: 2017

IMDB: 7.7

Watch on HULU

Future Man is a humorous representation of the sci-fi genre, with compelling chemistry between the cast and a well-written compilation of funny scenes, violence, and vulgarity. Josh Futturman is a janitor, and whenever he’s not working at his deadbeat job, he’s off playing video games. When put to the test, his video game skills pay off when he beats a game that the rest of the world thought unbeatable. But when strange visitors from the future appear and are on a mission to wreck the world, Josh must take up the responsibility to save it. The show may seem absurd at times, but fairly wacky and inventive which makes it a fun watch.

The Carmichael Show

Release Date: 2015

IMDB: 7.7

Watch on HULU

If there’s a tried and tested category of the comedy genre, it is the story about the daily lives of the central family. The Carmichael Show is a fresh take on this category, having us root for the characters and pay attention to the details. Jerrod and his girlfriend Maxine, who is a therapist under training decide to move in together. The problem? Jerrod’s family. The members of this affectional family, which include his brother Bobby, his father Joe, and his mother are completely different in their personalities. But this family provides the couple with lessons to learn about love, family, and true romance and sticking together no matter what.

Letterkenny

Release Date: 2016

IMDB: 8.6

Watch on HULU

If a show moves from being a YouTube series to being produced by Hulu, their formula has seen success. Letterkenny, which began as Letterkenny Problems on YouTube, is a show about a small community living in Letterkenny, Canada. The focal point of the show is siblings Wayne and Katy, who run a small farm. Filled with puns in a nostalgic country setting, we only need to be present to enjoy this show. We also see an unknown side of Canada, with the cursing and the honesty of culture. Letterkenny will have you laughing and rewinding the episode multiple times during an episode because the punchlines keep coming.

Deadbeat

Release Date: 2014

IMDB: 7.4

Watch on HULU

If we had to think of the funniest businesses showcased on TV, Deadbeat would easily be on top of the list. Kevin hails from New York but is almost always out of money. He does have an unusual gift that doesn't really help his situation- he can talk to ghosts and spends his time helping them out. But one chance night in a jail cell happens to introduce him to Clyde, who is just as unambitious as Kevin. But when Clyde finds out about Kevin's gift, they team up to combine Kevin's gift with Clyde's knack for making money. How this show could be a success is bizarre, but it is a testament that thinking out of the box is essential to creating an all-time entertainer. Give this series a chance, and we assure you will see it as fun.

What We Do In the Shadows

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 8.6

Watch on HULU

Move over Twilight and all other vampire movies for that matter. What We Do In The Shadows is a hilarious mockumentary, following the lives of three traditional vampires. It’s a New Zealand creation, the work of the living legends Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi of Flight of the Concords and Jojo Rabbit respectively. If you’re in the mood to laugh uncontrollably and escape to a ridiculously campy fantasy world, then What We Do In The Shadows should be the next movie that you stream. Viewers also love it – it earned 97% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Home Economics

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 6.4

Watch on HULU

Are you in complicated relationships with your siblings? Well, Home Economics may really hit… well… home. The two-series sitcom offers a window into the world of three siblings living totally different lives. Tom is a middle-class author, Grace is a struggling child therapist, and the youngest Connor has his own private equity firm, and is basically loaded. Drama ensues as the three siblings navigate their lives with their own struggles. It’s a super relatable TV show that will also have you laughing non-stop. A must-watch if you feel like something relevant but still hilarious.

Marvel's M.O.D.O.K.

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 6.3

Watch on HULU

Marvel is such a successful franchise, it was only a matter of time before they made a cartoon TV show! But make no mistake – this show is not for kids. The story of Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. follows the story of George Tarleton, a miserable boy who has a huge head, who ends up becoming a powerful supervillain set on bringing the world to a destructive end. But it’s not easy being a supervillain – and George or M.O.D.O.K. runs into trouble on several occasions. If you feel like a rude, adult cartoon with a Marvel superhero story, then M.O.D.O.K. is what you should be watching.

Whether you've already caught an episode or not, there's a good chance you've heard of 30 Rock. But if by some chance you haven't? Go and grab the popcorn while the sitcom takes you behind the curtains of a fictional sketch comedy show - and all of the hilarious chaos it entails, of course. And with Tina Fey as one of the series' main stars, well, need we say anymore?

What if we told you there was actually another Dunder Mifflin on the other side of the globe - equally as quirky and questionable? Meet The Office U.K., otherwise known as the OG "Office" series. Long before many US viewers met Michael Scott, actor Ricky Gervais was busy reigning as the very first World's Best Boss. This 2001 mockumentary series follows the Wernham Hogg paper company and the hilarious employees that make up its Berkshire office. And while we can't promise any of Kevin's famous chili or Jim's timeless pranks, trust us: You're in for a real treat here.

Rick and Morty

Release Date: 2013

IMDB: 9.2

Watch on HULU

When we say Rick and Morty is out of this world, we're not lying. The sci-fi sitcom starts with Rick Sanchez, a mad scientist, suddenly appearing on his daughter's doorstep one fateful day. But that's not where this story ends. In fact, that's just the beginning. As Rick adjusts to his new reality, he soon gains a companion in the oddest of places - his long-lost grandson, Morty.

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 8.4

Watch on HULU

Haven't heard of Lil Dicky? You're about to know him - very well. This funny series, Dave, follows the saga of the famous rapper as he stars as a spoofed version of himself. And let's just say he doesn't hold back. From pillow-talk to problems in the studio, Hollywood's funny guy doesn't exactly leave much to the imagination. But that's exactly why the raunchy comedy has morphed into the instant hit that it is. Well, that and the fact that the appearance of celeb guest-stars is almost as common as the laughs you'll be having at poor Dave Burd's expense. Check it out here, and happy binging!

Key & Peele

Release Date: 2012

IMDB: 8.3

Watch on HULU

What's better than one comedian? Two, of course. When funny guys Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele took to the stage for their very own sketch series, all odds were off. Safe to say, the comedians' TV show, Key & Peele, is even more entertaining than we could've ever imagined. From "Gremlins" to Game of Thrones, no topic is off-limits when it comes to these BFFs and their hilariously quirky skits. And that's exactly what we love about it. But you'll find that one out soon enough. Hop on over to Hulu to be a part of the fun for yourself.

Community

Release Date: 2009

IMDB: 8.5

Watch on HULU

Sure, one may think community college might not make for the most entertaining television - but that's where you'd be wrong. Leave it to legendary writer Dan Harmon to pen a sitcom so hilarious that it might just make us want to hit the books again. Quirky series, Community, focuses on a group of misfits as they adjust to life at Greendale Community College. Whether they're studying Spanish raps or scrambling for a pen for an embarrassingly long amount of time, the outcast students certainly get an A+ when it comes to keeping things fresh and interesting. But we'll let you be the judge of that one when you watch the series yourself.

The show offers a refreshingly honest outlook and reflects various points of view - all while getting a chuckle or two out of us, of course. Perhaps that's why it's morphed into a family favorite.

There's nothing quite like family, huh? Look no further than Jay Pritchett, who managed to keep us glued to the screen for 10+ years thanks to his hilarious family. Ever since Modern Family's debut back in 2009, the comforting sitcom has taken us on quite the ride.

The Mindy Project

Release Date: 2012

IMDB: 7.4

Watch on HULU

Mindy Kaling has come a long way since we saw her pining over Ryan at Dunder Mifflin back in '05. Well, sort of. The Office star's self-titled comedy, The Mindy Project, sees her as a successful OB/GYN. But we'll also watch her yearn for those same sappy relationships Kelly Kapoor spent her time in the office daydreaming about. But that's not all. We'll also be blessed with lots of familiar faces. Not only does the sitcom borrow a lot of Office stars, but their time on our screens this time around is somehow even more entertaining. Check it out for yourself here.

While we can't promise you the, um, most professional experience, should you ever find yourself at Sacred Heart Hospital, you're in for a very memorable time. Our next comedy, Scrubs, follows the hilarious sagas of a group of interns, led by John "J.D." Dorian, as they navigate their way around a fictional California hospital. Safe to say, you'll be getting a whole lot more than a VIP pass to the operation table with this adventure. Expect a whole lot of laughs and only a few malpractice scenarios after whizzing your way through all 9 seasons here. (Oh, and did we mention Dave Franco co-stars in season 9?)

We know we've said this before, but from Ted Mosby's mysterious flashbacks to Barney Stinson's legendary one-liners, How I Met Your Mother is truly a comedy like no other. Perhaps that's why the sitcom managed to secure 9 successful seasons before bringing Ted's journey to finding love to a final end. Well, how did he meet his children's mother?

Watch on HULU

Loosely based on the memoir of the very same title, Fresh Off the Boat follows a Taiwanese family during the '90s as they adjust to a new reality - far away from the comforts of D.C.'s Chinatown they once called home. Sure enough, the family's time in their new Orlando, Florida stomping grounds doesn't quite pan out the way they'd imagined. From their struggles to adjust to American culture to learning new things about themselves in the process, the sitcom's time on our screen is equally as heartwarming as it is hilarious. Catch the family comedy for yourself here.

We may have met her as a clueless chef navigating her way through adulthood, but leave it to Courteney Cox to prove that 40 is indeed the new 20. Though instead of Central Perk, the Friends star’s latest on-screen sitcom has her cozying up in new, unchartered territory: Cougar town (hence the sitcom’s name). You’ll watch the brunette beauty as she navigates her way through adulthood, dating, and all the hilarious mishaps it calls for.

On paper, it's the classic American Dream: A family man successfully manages to run his dream business - a hamburger restaurant - along with his wife and three children by his side. But make no mistake about it - what happens in Bob's Burgers is anything but cliché. While Bob Belcher might have all the ingredients for the perfect life, he and his clan are perhaps as dysfunctional as it gets - making for one hilarious cartoon. And we're not alone on that one. The popular series has been on air since 2011 and doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Pop on over to Hulu to check out the hype for yourself.

PEN15

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 8.0

Watch on HULU

The year is 2000. It’s the first day of middle school, and the stakes have never been higher - at least where Anna and Maya are concerned. In Pen15, comedians Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle star as 13-year-old versions of themselves, all while being surrounded by actual middle school kids. What could possibly go wrong, right? Safe to say, the oddball comedy is exactly as cringeworthy as you’d expect it to be. This is exactly what the stars had in mind when they blessed us with the quirky comedic gem. After all, has anyone’s journey through puberty actually been graceful? So what are you waiting for? Pop on over to Hulu for a dose of some good ol’ nostalgia (and only a little bit of awkwardness).

Last but certainly not least, it’s time to rehash a comedic classic: It’s hard to think of a time when this comedy series wasn’t busy dominating our Saturday nights. Whether it’s another raunchy skit or celebrity musical performance, Saturday Night Live certainly knows how to put on a show. After all, they’ve been doing it for over 45 years now. And considering the ratings and rave reviews? We’d say the beloved series isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Pop on over to Hulu to give your weekend watching the upgrade it deserves.
