These are the best current dark comedy TV shows, ranked from best to worst by user votes. Some of the top current dark comedy series blend humor with horrow while some other best current dark comedy shows use sketch comedy to poke fun at usually morbid content.
What shows will you find on this best current dark comedy TV shows list? It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been spinning unethical behavior and trauma into comedy gold since 2005. Not only is it the longest-running live-action comedy series, but this great dark comedy show has also turned its main cast - Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito - into some of the most terrible and terribly relatable characters on TV. Curb Your Enthusiasm is another good dark comedy series currently airing on television and one of the best dark comedies of the decade.
Dark comedy and crimes seem to go hand in hand, with series like Fargo and Better Call Saul getting tangled in grimly hilarious mystery. Other good shows that appear on this list of the top current dark comedy TV shows list include Barry, Dead To Me, and The Boys.
