List RulesVote up the funniest 2010s comedy shows.

The 2010s were a decade blessed (or, depending on how you look at it, cursed) with the rise of Peak TV and the dawning of some of the funniest comedies in TV history. Gone were the days of three channels with three hours of primetime slots and only a handful of funny-yet-safe shows to choose from - in its place was comedy after comedy mercilessly competing for viewing time and pushing the envelope of what it meant to be funny.

Sure, some of the top 2010s comedy TV shows were often also depressing (BoJack Horseman), or bizarre (Russian Doll), or an hour in length (Shameless), but that doesn't mean they didn't also contain some of the funniest moments in modern TV history. From animation to musicals to sketch shows to serialized sci-fi, comedy shifted forms and become unrecognizable like no other genre in the 2010s, and it's never looked better because of it.

So let's get ready to laugh, cry, feel crippling anxiety, and then laugh again, because in this list we're going to revisit 2010s best comedy TV shows.
