The 10 best comedy series in 2022 to laugh out loud

BBC


    Comedies, whether movies or, as in this case, series, have a great advantage over other genres: any time is usually a good time to enjoy one of them. It can be the icing or the culmination of a day to frame or serve as a shock to try to overcome a day to forget.

    Just as no two laughs are the same, another issue to consider is the different types of humor offered by the comedy. For example, there are some of them that they shamelessly employ the classic slapstickas is the case with ‘The man against the bee’the new from Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean), a master in the art of making us smile. ‘Murderville’ could be a somewhat similar case, but the improvisation factor in charge of your guest star They make each chapter an event. If we stick to this genre, they are two of the best series on Netflix in 2022. And, without a doubt, sisters in their own right of laughter from a group of movies that are part of the best comedies to laugh out loud on Netflix.

    We also have the case of those comedies that they are not pure and that flirt with dramaa clear example that opposite poles attract each other, and even more so if they play with the “rural” factor or with the return home after the erratic behavior of its protagonista mixture of nostalgia, acceptance and overcoming that always works very well (here we have the case of ‘Open Wounds’). ‘What a fabric, Sam’, a series somewhat removed from what Disney + has accustomed us to and ‘Somebody Somewhere’the series with the most heart on HBO Max, are part of the best of this subgenre of dramatic comedy.

    Lastly, what does the world of editorial eroticism in 1970s California have in common with the extravagance of pirate life offered by ‘Our flag means death’? In the purely formal, nothing, but the addictive ‘Minx’ (a series softnothing to do with non-porn movies with real sex or similar) and the proposal of David Jenkins and an (even more) disheveled Taika Waititi aboard the ‘Revenge’ They are two essential series that are worth it. Along with them, we can also add ‘The essays’, the HBO Max series that never stops surprising us. The approach by Nathan Fielder is so bright, wacky and martian -in line with the best works of the great Charlie Kaufman- which, effectively, will not leave you indifferent.

    In this varied ranking, we have selected the 10 best current comedy series with which to break out laughing. And all of them, in their first season, so you can do a marathon full of laughter and catch up in a few hours.

‘The man against the bee’

‘The man against the bee’ supposes the return of Rowan Atkinson -The unforgettable mr bean– to a television series. On this occasion, the Brit plays a somewhat clumsy father who, after getting a job as a housekeeper, he sees as the presence of a bee unleash a fight without quarter with devastating consequences in the place where he has landed his first commission as a caretaker: a luxurious and exclusive mansion with incalculable works of art.

‘Murderville’

Of course, the plot of ‘Murderville’ is not trivial. Will Arnett (the unforgettable Gob Bluth of ‘Arrested Development’) plays Terry Seattlean eccentric inspector that, in each of its 6 episodes, must solve a crime with the help of stars of the stature of Sharon Stone, Conan O’Brien or Kumail Nanjiani who they must improvise because They do not know absolutely nothing of the plot nor do they have a single line of script. We bet a million canned laughs that ‘Murderville’ is the new Netflix comedy that will surprise you.

‘A wolf like me’

Although its title is not too subtle, ‘A wolf like me’ It’s one of those weird mixes that don’t always work out. Fortunately, we are facing a good series whose six short episodes are made, precisely, short. Isla Fisher and Josh Gad star in this romantic comedy Australian invoice with fantastic elements in which, by an accident of fate, “widower meets mystery woman”. And up to here the trite story because, if something characterizes this series, it is the successive turns that allows him to flee from the clichés and turn towards unexpected terrains.

‘What a cloth, Sam’

Teen comedy about alcoholism in which a promising young woman who has almost destroyed her life due to drinking must return home to her controlling mother to sober up, flee bar counter temptations and avoid jail. Can she find redemption? ‘What a cloth, Sam’ it’s a emotional journey back to sobriety by a fantastic Sofia Black-D’Elia, who turns this path of rehabilitation and descent into hell into a moving experience.

‘Life and Beth’

In ‘Life and Beth’, Amy Schumer acts as showrunner, screenwriter and protagonist of this country comedy in which she plays Beth, a cynical and successful woman who, it seems, has achieved all her life goals: she has a good job as a wine distributor, maintains a healthy relationship and lives in a nice house in the heart of New York but you know that the pieces don’t quite fit. A family tragedy will force him to travel to his town, where he will face his existential crisis thanks to his constant flashbacks of his adolescent self, which will allow him to remember some of the (un)wise decisions he made and that have led him to his current situation.

‘Our flag means death’

‘Our flag means death’ is the new and crazy proposal from David Jenkins and Taika Waititi, who here acts as executive producer, director and co-star, a filmmaker who never leaves you indifferent -if you want the latest example, here you can read the review of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ , the latest Marvel movie starring the god of thunder.

In ‘Our flag means death’, an aristocrat goes through a existential crisis and decides to leave his wife and children to fulfill his dream: to go to sea to become a pirate.

The series, one of the most pleasant surprises in recent years, mix the romanticism with absurd humor and with that need to pursue dreams to feel fulfilled. Are you really still wondering why you have to watch ‘Our Flag Means Death’?

‘Somebody Somewhere’

Its cast is not going to attract your attention and its plot – a woman in crisis dealing with loss struggles to fit in in her hometown, Manhattan (eye, Kansas) -, either. But there’s something in ‘Somebody Somewhere’ which makes it one of our favourites: the authenticity of what it tellswithout looking for an imposed sensibility, and the wise use of time as a remedy to heal those wounds most terrible things that life can bring. A dramatic comedy in which topics such as depression and homophobia are touched on and in which the actress and comedian Bridget Everett shines with her own light. For all this, ‘Somebody Somewhere’ is one of the best HBO Max series in 2022.

‘minx’

Minx’, one of this season’s cover seriescould be the spiritual sister of ‘The Deuce’, the HBO Max series also starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal about the legalization and consolidation of the porn industry in New York in the 70s.
In this fun proposal we go back to the 70s, but we go to the West Coast and jump to Los Angeles to meet Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond), a young feminist who decides to join forces with a low-budget publisher to create the first erotic magazine for women.

If this leaves you unsatisfied, you can always take a look at the best movies about porn cinema.

‘The essays’

Genius or martian? Maybe a little of both. Of course, ‘The essays’ is, by your proposal, the docu-reality series/experiment with one more premise groundbreaking and hypnotic so far this year.

Have you ever been before the most important day of your life and have that horrible feeling that it will go wrong because your nerves will betray you? Nathan Fielder can make that stage fright go away. In “The Trials” Fielder aid through careful planning all kinds of people to prepare to face crucial moments in their own livestesting each one of the possibilities in simulations designed by himself.

A thoughtful series that blurs the fine line between reality and fiction thanks to its relentless surreal situations.

‘This is going to hurt’

Ben Whitshaw (‘Q’ in Daniel Craig’s Bond movie saga) stars in the comedy series – to be fair, it also has a lot of drama – that tops our ranking.

‘This is going to hurt’ is one of the essential series of the year that, through the use of black humor and its breaking of the fourth wall, allows us to discover the strenuous routine of novice doctor Adam Key (Whishaw) in a large public hospital in London and, incidentally, denounce the reality of mistreatment of public health. Forget charismatic doctors who save lives while breaking hearts. Here, thanks to the real experience of screenwriter Adam Key, you will find a real resident doctor: tired, jaded, overwhelmed by pressure and excessive workloadwhich will affect your mental health in a worrying way.
