List RulesVote up the funniest action shows that have ever aired on television.

The best comedy action series are a rush, perfectly pairing the excitement of an action series with the laughs of comedies. The best action comedy series ever shown on television keeps you laughing through the fights and chases. If you’ve been looking for the best action comedies to add some fun to your TV nights, this list of the best action comedy series of all time will help you figure out what needs to go into your queue.

Really good action comedies basically offer non-stop fun. Not only do you get to watch some great comedy, but you know there are going to be quips during the fight scenes. From funny superhero shows like the original The Tick and the 1960s Batman, to the more modern (and often enjoyably, hilariously weird) series such as Future Man and Archer, funny action shows are some of the best comedy series of all time.

Which shows balance being comedies and action series the best? Vote up the best action comedy shows, vote down the shows that don't deliver the jokes with their adrenaline rush, and add any funny action series that are missing.
