When you ask yourself this question, the first thing that pops into your mind is most likely the following three categories: sitcoms, standup comedy, and comedy movies. Although, you could break up comedy movies into multiple genres, these 3 genres of comedy encompass roughly most of high rated comedies in America.
Two of the highest rated shows (in any area of media or entertainment in America) are How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. Some others that come to mind are: Scrubs, Friends, Frasier, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm (not technically a sitcom but close enough).Didnâ€™t catch that? This explains it.
As far as standup goes, some of the most famous comedians include: Louis CK, Bill Hicks, George Carlin, Jim Gaffigan, Jeff Dunham, Joe Rogan, Carlos Mencia, Daniel Tosh. Of course, these are just names that come immediately to mind when I think of stand up comedians that I enjoy watching. If you ask someone else what they enjoy, depending on how old they are (or how much of a ‘hardcore’ standup fan they are) their list might be entirely different.
I’ll have to admit that I haven’t kept up with comedy movies as of the late, but the movie that comes to mind immediately is The Hangover.
