The Funniest Characters From 'What We Do in the Shadows'

Updated May 15, 2020 440 votes 98 voters8 items

Based on the hilarious 2014 movie of the same name, What We Do in the Shadows revolves around a group of vampires who are wildly out of touch with the modern world. As roommates living in NYC, these once-powerful vampires have to face truly terrifying obstacles, such as figuring out what to wear to the bar, trying to keep the NYC werewolf scene in check, and learning how to navigate the ins and outs of the US immigration system.

OK, so these vampires may not be the most powerful in history, but they’re easily some of the funniest. Who’s your favorite character? Laslow’s a former English nobleman who knows a thing or two about style and likes to make awkward sculptures, while Nandor is a former soldier of the Ottoman Empire who just so happens to be a huge basketball fan. And then there are the numerous supporting humans, including Jake, the reincarnated version of Nadja's lover, and Guillermo, Nandor’s human servant familiar.
