@tsarstepan,
Thanks, actually I am watching Superstore and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, excited to give others a try. Hopefully I find one of these to my taste. Exited about sports night: Aaron Sorkin. Thank you. Smile
Have you watched all of these?

@peterhalloway,
The IT Crowd is ******* hilarious. It introduced my family to Richard Ayoade —and we’ve all been scouring the depths of the internet to find more of him.

He has one of the funniest travel man / food shows (Travel Man) wherein he and a friend/victim travel around eating unusual locale fare and cracking on it with smooth wit and sarcasm.

Last night, I was languishing in despondency —because I have, in fact, reached the end of the internet — when the gods smiled upon me and somehow led me to a youtube show called The Big Fat Quiz of Everything that features revolving comedians and Ayoade is one of them. I haven’t laughed this much in a year.

Laughter really is medicine.

———————
Sorry, not workplace, but had to riff on Ayoade.

@peterhalloway,
You should try Taxi. It also has a great cast, including Tony Danza, Chistopher Lloyd, Judd Hirsch and Danny DeVito.

Taxi is an American sitcom television series that originally aired on ABC from September 12, 1978 to May 6, 1982 and on NBC from September 30, 1982 to June 15, 1983.

@Lash,
Father Ted and Black Books have the same writers.

You could always check out my thread on British and Irish comedy.

@izzythepush,
Done! There's one I've seen about three or so nurses in a ward for geriatrics or something? I can't remember how to find it, but as bleak as the plot sounds, I laughed a lot. Ring a bell?

Shrill on Hulu. Pretty tight for American-produced.
