I absolutely adore all things comedy. 

Call me a comedy fanatic or just a girl who loves a good laugh. 

So I don’t know if I am the only one who does this, but once I fall in love with a show, I keep coming back to it like a billion sometimes.

I know this screams of escapist tendencies and yes, sometimes I do watch sitcoms for hours on end but it’s just because a good funny show always helps me get out of a funk. 

Drop a comment if you can relate. And suggest some of your favourite sitcoms that you keep coming back to. 

Top Sitcoms That Will Crack You Up and Make Your Day

24. Two and a Half Men

Two and a Half Men stars Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and Angus.T. Jones (as Jon Cryer’s son). It follows the life of a recently-divorced uptight and dramatic chiropractor Alan Harper (Jon Cryer), who goes to live with his successful advertisement jingle maker brother Charlie(Charlie Sheen). The show has 12 successful seasons with hilarious innuendos, sexual escapades, and a pretty solid storyline. Very few sitcoms manage to run that long, this show is redemption at it’s best.

My favourite dialogues from the show:

Alan: ‘Why don’t you get a vasectomy?’

Charlie: ‘I’ve considered it. In fact, a couple of years ago I believe there was a petition circulating.’ 

Alan Harper: Be sure to wear a condom, not everything stays in Vegas! 

23. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

I think there is only one way to introduce this show to you and that is with the help of the theme song, which basically explains the entire premise of the show. 

This is the clearest video I could find with the lyrics.

This was the first acting role of the one and only Will Smith. The show has great 90s comedy, the characters are all entertaining, Smith, as usual, brings something so special to his role and the show also manages to touch upon some really poignant issues in the African-American community. 

My favourite dialogues from the show:

“Uncle Phil: Geoffrey, get my tools.
Geoffrey: You mean your knife and fork?”


“Girl, yo feet must be tired cause you’ve been running through my mind all day!” – Will Smith

“Now, this is my brother Carlton. We can’t afford new clothes, so he just doesn’t grow!” – Will Smith

22. Grown-ish

Grown-ish is a spin-off of the hit ABC show Black-ish. It follows the life of Zoey Johnson played by Yara Shahidi, the oldest of the Johnson family and her college shenanigans. It accurately portrays how friendships, relationships, and college life are affected by social media in the modern world, and also tackle some major issues faced by college students.

My favourite dialogues from Grownish:

Jazz: Girl, there ain’t nothing romantic about a ‘u up?’ text.

Sky:  Facts. A ‘u up text might as well be a Chris Brown song.

21. Impractical Jokers

Impractical is a real-life show that follows four lifelong friends Joe, Q, Murr, and Sal, who put each other to the test by challenging each other to ridiculous and embarrassing tasks. Whoever doesn’t complete all the tasks in that episode is named the loser and will have to do a punishment that the other three have chosen for him. Hilarious, entertaining, and absolutely pointless, even though the show is not a sitcom, it’s a super fun watch.

My favourite dialogues:

Sal : “In my family gingivitis is a good thing because when there’s gin, invite us”

Sal :  “Would you buy a baby on the black market IF the price was fair?” 

20. Glee

Glee is the only comedy musical on the list. If you have any musical comedy suggestions, leave them in the comments below.

Glee is the story of teenagers from different cliques of the school who are connected by their love for music. The show tackles teenage pregnancy, homosexuality, competition, and covers literally every song you have heard, and sometimes, the Glee versions are so much better.

This is what we call a total disaster, ladies. I’m going to ask you to smell your armpits. That’s the smell of failure and it’s stinking up my office. I’m revoking your tanning privileges for the rest of the semester.”— Sue Sylvester,

19. Drake and Josh

Would you consider a Nickelodeon show to be a good sitcom? It doesn’t matter, because I do. 

Drake and Josh was one of my first introductions to comedy series and I loved it. It follows the lives of two brothers who could not be more different from each other. Drake is the cool guy who is always playing his guitar, while Josh is the eccentric nerd. They share a room, have a younger sister Megan who is an evil genius and are always getting themselves into trouble whether they intend to or not.

“Scottie: [after the band got arrested for having fake tickets to a concert] I’m telling you, the tickets aren’t fake!
Drake: Are you sure?
Scottie: Yeah, I mean I photocopied them myself!
Rina: Scottie, you can’t photocopy tickets!
Scottie: Yes, you can. You just put the tickets on the glass and close the lid thingy. Any moron can do it!
Drake : No, Scottie, not just any moron. It takes a special moron, like you!”

18. 2 Broke Girls

sitcoms on netflix, best sitcoms of the 2000s, 90s sitcoms, nbc sitcoms, american sitcoms, new sitcoms, best sitcoms of 2018, funny tv shows. best sitcoms on netflix, sitcoms on amazon prime, sitcoms of 2010s, 2000s comedy tv shows, black 90s sitcoms, 90s sitcoms on netflix, blog, review blog, purple glitch blog, the purple glitch blog, indian blog, blogger, two broke girls, max black, caroline channing

This show is one of the very few hit sitcoms that have two female leads. Created by comedian Whitney Cummings, the show begins with Max a waitress at a diner who meets an ex-heiress Caroline, who has just lost all her money because of the lawsuits against her father. Max lets Caroline live with her and she too becomes a waitress at the same diner – a real princess to pauper story. The show has a range of widely interesting characters who make the life of two broke girls in Williamsburg, complicated, interesting and undoubtedly hilarious. Max Black played by Kat Dennings is one of the wittiest characters I have ever seen on a television series. 

Max: Call him right now! He can’t come over here. Look around! I have his napkins hanging up everywhere. He’ll think I’m Dexter. [intercom buzzes] Don’t answer that. Don’t you…
Caroline[answering intercom] Come on in, Johnny. Yes, I did it. I need a bed.
Max: You are so selfish!
Caroline: Yes, I’m selfish, and you’re Dexter. So, quick… help me take down the napkins. Oh, God, there are so many! How come I never noticed how many there were before?
Max: I don’t know. Same reason you didn’t notice your father stealing everybody’s money?
Caroline: Really? Really? Now when I’m helping you?
Max: You’re right. We’ll trash you later.

17. Fresh off the Boat

The show depicts the life of a Taiwanese-American family in Florida in the 1990s, the series stars Randall Park and Constance Wu. The show is packed with South Asian humour, 90s music references and great plotlines.

16. Total Drama Island

total drama island, cartoon network

The first animated comedy series on my list. Though the show has limited seasons, it’s a great one to watch. The show is a spoof of reality tv shows such as Big Brother and Survivor where contestants are made to live on an island and complete tasks while making ridiculous and super dramatic confessionals.

It was first seen on Cartoon Network and is now available on Netflix.

15. That 70s Show

shorturl.at/abyZ2

It is the story of six teenagers in Wisconsin during the 1970s. They get high together, get in trouble together, and just end up having the weirdest conversations and doing the silliest things. The show is made even better by Eric Foreman’s parents Red and Kitty. The show might seem a bit problematic but you must remember it was made over a decade ago and is depicting a time that took place nearly 50 years ago.

14. Santa Clarita Diet

shorturl.at/jstDI

Santa Clarita Diet is one of the weirdest sitcoms I have ever seen in my life. Period. Although the premise may seem quite unsettling, it makes you think about the extent one would go to in order to keep your family safe. It follows the life of Sheila Hammond played by Drew Barrymore who overnight started feeling really sick and ended up puking a gross substance and hours later she develops a craving for human meat. 

I know it sounds wrong, but the script and story are so engaging that you will not be able to stop watching the show. She has to figure out how to balance her urge for eating people and killing innocent humans in the process. 

My favourite dialogues:

Well, we can’t start killing people. We’re getting life back to normal. And killing people isn’t normal, sweetheart.

“I just wanted your vomit. Why’d you have to make it weird?” — Abby

“Our kitchen looks like the inside of a shark.”— Joel

13. Friends

Friends is a show about six friends who are in their twenties and living in New York. Each character with their own unique qualities deal with careers, relationships, and breakups together and is one of the most beloved sitcoms in television history. 

My favourite dialogues:

12. Modern Family

It is the story of patriarch Jay Pritchett, a closet mogul, and his family. He has two children Claire Pritchett who is married with three children and Mitchell Pritchett married Cameron Tucker. In the very first episode, Mitch and Cam had just adopted a Vietnamese baby together. The show follows a mockumentary style where the characters directly tell us their thoughts and feelings. 

The show is endearing, hilarious, and super chaotic, as it depicts the life of a growing modern family in a modern world.

11. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

shorturl.at/rAB78

I know I said Santa Clarita Diet was the weirdest comedy show, but unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has the best premise. Created by the legendary Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a show about a woman who finally broke free from her house of horrors where she was abducted by a ‘Pastor’ when she was a young girl. Even though she had been through some of the most traumatic experiences a human can go through, her spirit was unbreakable. 

She begins her own life in New York City where she has to maneuver the concrete jungle and start her new life. 

My favourite dialogues:

“I should have been a doctor. I look amazing in white, my handwriting is terrible, and I love telling people to take their pants off and just leaving and then making them sit there for an hour.”— Titus Andromedon,

10. The Middle

The Middle is a show about a family of five from Indiana. They live in the middle of America, living an extremely mediocre and their main source of entertainment is the television. The show follows a fixed structure through all their nine seasons, but unlike sitcoms that trail off in quality after a couple of seasons, the Middle makes it work all the way till the end. A family comedy, with incredible dialogues and hilarious storylines..

9. New Girl

New Girl is the story of Jessica Day played by Zoey Deschanel, an adorkable teacher who moves into an apartment with three guys based on an apartment listing she found on Craigslist. A scary situation for most girls, but lucky for her she ended up with Nick, Schmidt, and Coach who were far from scary. They quickly become close friends and come to rely on Jess for advice and support.  The show has super relatable scenarios, great bromances, drinking games, hilarious dialogues, and acting that is so good that you can’t help but crack up. 

My favourite dialogues:

His story is based on his adventurous 20s in New York, with his four friends- Marshall (a lawyer ) and Lilly (a kindergarten teacher), Robin ( a newscaster), and Barney ( a playboy with some sort of a corporate job.)

She plays a kind-hearted Gynaecologist named Mindy Lahiri, who is doing the most to live her best life. The cast consist of eccentric characters and her love life is a constant rollercoaster that Mindy has to maneuver in order to get through the day. The show is funny, witty, and relatable to every woman. The endearing nature of the characters and the storyline will keep you cooked.

The Rose family is then forced to move to a little town in the middle of nowhere called Schitt’s Creek and live in a motel because that’s all they can afford. The show is endearing, hilarious, and just absolutely enjoyable from start to finish. The edgy characters of the town and the Rose family’s struggle from riches to rags is a fun tale to watch unfold.

4. 30 Rock

Now this one may not make it to any of the mainstream best sitcoms lists but it is one show that I find ridiculously funny. 30 Rock has it’s own little cult following and has won multiple Emmy awards. It is about a producer Liz Lemon who produces a late-night comedy musical show called TGS with Tracy Jordan, who has to deal with loose cannon Tracy Jordan and her new boss Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin). This surreal comedy is well-appreciated for it’s attention to detail, complex and chaotic structure based on the NBC corporate structure and it’s parent company General Electric.

A delusional boss and his staff are filmed for a documentary about office life. The show documents realistic and wildly funny daily lives of the staff at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company’s Scranton branch. Even without a laugh track and with just the single-camera set-up this show has some of the most unforgettable moments in television history. A lot of people find the show hard to watch because of it’s cringe comedy, but I promise once you get into the second season you will not be able to get enough of it.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a sitcom about the 99th Precinct of the NYPD. The show stars Andy Sandberg who plays detective Jake Peralta who is a great detective but the only mystery he was never able to solve was how to grow up. The show has an incredibly diverse cast who each add something special to the show.

1. Big Bang Theory

shorturl.at/eSY19

The Big Bang Theory is one of the funniest sitcoms I have ever seen. It just checks off a lot of boxes that most long-running sitcoms tend to forget. The Big Bang Theory has such hilarious puns, plotlines, and dialogues that you can’t help but laugh, and even though the show for 12 seasons it managed to pull through till the very end. Unlike most sitcoms that screw up the finale *cough How I Met Your Mother*, Big Bang Theory has one of the most touching finales I have ever seen. 

The show is about Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstader, two physicists from Cal Tech who spend most nights playing games, watching fictional movies and shows, discussing comic books, or hitting the comic book stores. Their routine life changes when a hot girl moves in next door to Leonard and Sheldon. Rarely are there sitcoms made about nerds and their lives, and this one takes the cake. 

My favourite dialogues:

“As my mom used to say, ‘When you’re doing a puzzle, it’s like you’ve got a thousand friends.’ She was full of fun lies like that.”— Amy Farrah Fowler,

Raj: I don’t like bugs, okay? They freak me out.

Sheldon: Interesting. You’re afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic.”— Sheldon Cooper,

A few sitcoms that I believe deserve honorable mentions are – Cheers, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Rick & Morty, Seinfeld, and  Whose line is it anyway.
