The 20 Best Comedy TV Shows & Series of All Time

for the intelligent person.

Below are my 20 favourite comedy television shows/series of all time. Good comedy is extremely difficult to do both well and constantly. The TV shows I have choosen are of a variety of different types of comedy genres (some are very black, some are satirical while others are sitcoms). But the one thing they have in common, they all made me laugh a lot.

It was difficult to limit my selection to 20. There are plenty of shows which don't make the cut but are still very funny (e.g. Monty Python, Fraiser etc...).

Comedy is extremely subjective, what one person finds funny another doesn't. So I'm sure some people will hate my selection. Sorry.
