When an hour and a half of laughing out loud isn’t enough, Netflix has you covered with some incredible comedy series to keep the laughs coming.

From intelligent mockumentaries and classic sitcoms to surreal animation and acclaimed series from the UK, the Netflix catalog of comedy series is stacked, but here are the top 10 you should be watching right now.

Cunk on Earth

From British Comedian Diane Morgan, Cunk on Earth sees her iconic character Philomena Cunk move beyond the shores of the UK and take on the world. The mockumentary sees the intelligently blunt and witty interviewer speaking to experts in the fields of history, science, literature, and more as she looks to uncover the secrets of our world.

Seinfeld

Still lorded as one of (if not the) best American sitcom ever made, Seinfeld sees the titular stand-up comedian navigate the struggles of the profession and everyday life alongside his bizarre, eccentric friends Kramer, Elaine, and George.

Disenchantment

From The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Disenchantment takes his signature style of dry humor and his quirky animation to a medieval fantasy world filled with castles, underwater cities, talking demons, and literally literal elves. Disenchantment is a return to form for Matt Groening after the slow decline in quality from his long-running juggernaut, The Simpsons.

Derry Girls

Moving from fantasy worlds to Northern Ireland in the 1990s, Derry Girls follows four friends, Erin, Orla, Michelle, and Claire (alongside Michelle’s English cousin James), as they navigate their teenage years against the backdrop of the national conflict that pervaded Ireland throughout the 90s.

Community

Before teenagers were hooked on Rick and Morty, series creator Dan Harmon took the sitcom world by storm with Community. Following a study group and the fictional Greendale community college, Community, as well as being a hilariously absurd sitcom, also brutally tears apart the conventions and tropes of some of the most beloved genres of tv and film, including westerns, police procedurals and sci-fi epics.

GLOW

As a last attempt to save her failing career as an actress, Ruth auditions for a series called GLOW. Little does she know, the series stands for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, and Ruth, alongside her betrayed best friend Debbie, find themselves as professional wrestlers in the 1980s.

Sex Education

Easily one of the most heartwarming and relevant comedy series on Netflix to date, Sex Education takes a hilarious look at the developing hormones of teenagers through the lens of Otis, the son of a renowned sex therapist (played by Gillian Anderson). Alongside its hilarious awkward comedy, Sex Education is a biting critique of the failures of modern sex education practices in schools.

Russian Doll

Starring Emmy nominee Natasha Lyonne (Poker Face), Russian Doll is a hilarious take on the Groundhog Day trope. On her way to be the guest of honor at a prestigious party in New York, Nadia finds herself caught in a time loop, reliving the same day again and again, winding up dead at the end of each day.

Arrested Development

With an incredible ensemble cast, Arrested Development is one of the best modern sitcoms around. After the head patriarch is convicted of fraud, the Bluth family – once a prominent name in business – begins to slowly unravel as Michael (Jason Bateman) fights to maintain peace within the family.

BoJack Horseman

As soul-crushing as it is hilarious, BoJack Horseman takes a surreal look at the ins and outs of Hollywoods through the long face of the titular Bojack. Once a beloved sitcom star, BoJack is now a Hollywood has-been who navigates day-to-day life with a bottle as he procrastinates writing his autobiography.
