looking for a good 30 minute comedy

Postby Tyler » Mon Jun 20, 2016 10:54 am

Jocelyn and I like to watch a short comedy show while we eat dinner. During the tv season we have B99, Last Man on Earth, Modern Family, Workaholics, Broad City, Sunny, Silicon Valley, John Oliver etc. (dang we somehow watch a lot of TV)

Most of these shows are on break. Can anyone recommend a show to fill this specific need?
I suggested Arrested Development or Community. I have seen both of these, but wouldn't have a problem rewatching when we had silence to fill.

I'll try to think of something quick. I know you can't hold a conversation, so it must be torture for her during dinner.

Kathryn and I watch Grey's Anatomy. It's not a bad show, one of the characters is awful. It is an hour long though.

For a 22 minuter you could try The IT Crowd (I think you have seen this already? Jocelyn might not like it all that much), rewatch the Office, Pokemon, Firefly (hour long episodes, not exactly a comedy).

Dang it's hard to think of shows...

We have plenty of hour drama shows to watch, but we save those for after baby's bedtime.

True. We did watch season 1 and Salvo claims season 2 is better.

Or that other Netflix show, Lady Dynamite

Black Dynamite*, but I understand why you thought it was Dynomite.

and me too. What if it was a tv series based on the movie but with a female lead?

I also suggested that, she wasn't as on board.

It is #8 rated show of all time on IMDB

Better Off Ted. I remember watching a few episodes of this and thinking it was hilarious. I believe it was cancelled after the 2nd season so there are only 26 episodes.

Not Safe with Nikki Glazer is hilarious if you don't mind a comedy talk show that is completely about sex.

How do you even get the jokes? You aren't married/sexually active.

I just think words like "boobs" and "penis" are funny.

Trailer Park Boys. 22 minute episodes.

I'm not ashamed to say I burnt through all 10 seasons in less than a month.
