Looking for a laugh?
Try The Good Place! What would you do if you were sent to heaven when you were really supposed to be sent to hell? The main character in this series decides to hide out in heaven and pretend to be a good person rather than risk getting sent to…you guessed it, The Bad Place. If you already enjoy Black-ish, try Marlon, a fairly new comedy series about a fictional family…and the father figure is none other than Marlon Wayans!

Other popular comedies: Bob’s Burgers, The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Shameless
