    How I Met Your Mother is pretty freaking hilarious. Neil Patrick Harris really makes the show.

    Tough call

    All time- tie between blackadder and red dwarf with black books and maybe green wing coming up the outside.
    I would say python and although their TV was and still is awesome if I am going there it is the live shows and films that I will go for.

    Recently- several things have seen my laugh but most consistently it has to have been Breaking Bad- got to love black comedy.

    In Holland we only get repeats for the 'popular' comedy shows.

    Which means: nothing is funny anymore.

    don't really have a favorite some episodes of series are funny while others are not. There is one thing that makes me instantly skip a show and that is the laughter machine if they have that I won't even try watching it.

    Scrubs, I absolutely love it. I've watched like every good episode (I think they're all pretty good until the whole "New Scrubs" shit where half the cast left and minor characters from the original series became protagonists) at least 5+ times each.

    Reno 911 has its moments. It started going downhill but some episodes just are funniest things ever. The Reading Ron one in particular.

    And I can't believe Comedy Central canned Nick Swardson's Pretend Time. That show was awesome but they canned it because Comedy Central seem to can most every new series they push out. Workaholics (their new flavor of the month) will probably be gone within its first season. Only thing they kept in recent memory that was actually awesome was Tosh.0.

    There's a few others like Wonder Showzen, Jackass, Robot Chicken (although I find some sketches fall flat), and Whitest Kids U Know (same deal as Robot Chicken).

    EDIT: I used to like South Park a lot but it seemed to start trying to be too political and too "hot button" to actually be really funny. The episodes where it's just random shit and actually solid parodies are still good though.

    South Park is one of the funniest shows I've ever watched. If you look past the crude humor it has some of the most cleverly written satire and irony I've seen.

    Whose Line is it Anyway? - the improv makes it even better xD
