Who didn't need a laugh in 2018?

With all the drama and controversy that surrounded us in real life, the ability to get lost in a fictional television world where things are hilariously ridiculous is always a welcome relief.

From humorous horror to side-splitting sci-fi, both new shows and established, here are 13 shows we thought were comedic gold in 2018!

1. The Good Place

The Good Place
Equal parts genius and hilarious, The Good Place may very well be the funniest show on TV. Chidi's existential crisis that ended with him making Peep chili for his students was one of the biggest laugh-out-loud moments of the year!

2. Baroness von Sketch

Baroness von Sketch
Baroness von Sketch is one of the best sketch shows we've ever seen that is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. The four women who star in and write the sketches are ridiculously talented and can take the most mundane situations and turn them into embarrassingly relatable comedic gold.


No sophomore slump for this Netflix comedy which delved into some serious issues in its second season but didn't lose its humorous touch. It's funny, clever, and for those of us who remember the '80s -- a trip down memory lane.

4. Stan Against Evil

Stan Against Evil
Stan Against Evil is full of talented comic actors and creator and showrunner, Dana Gould, manages to insert so many pop culture references it feels like you've lived in Willard's Mill, too. More people need to tune in and enjoy the fun.

5. The Orville

The Orville
The Orville took major risks but Seth MacFarlane’s humor was tempered just right (most of the time) to satisfy those who were looking for a Galaxyquest-ish serial.

6. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The second season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was even more delightful and charming than the first. Midge is as witty and wise-cracking as ever and the show is simply perfection in every way imaginable.

7. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Many fans were outraged that FOX canceled this series that left us in hysterics week after week, but NBC was quick to recognize a piece of comedic gold when they picked it up for a sixth season. We're positive they loved the "I Want It That Way" cold open as much as we did. It's the best they've ever done.

8. Splitting Up Together

Splitting Up Together
This underrated comedy is fun, cute, and has so much heart. That is to be expected with Ellen DeGeneres being the EP. Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson have great comedic timing and chemistry. It's one of the most delightful half-hour comedies on air.

9. The Kids Are Alright

The Kids Are Alright
The Kids Are Alright cracks us up week after week. This (mostly) realistic comedy is shown through the eyes of one of eight boys in a Catholic family in the 1970s. The humor never feels forced or dated, and all the kids play well off of each other. And Mary McCormack's Peg is sarcastic, sneaky, and knows how to handle her husband as well as all the kids.

10. Schitt's Creek

Schitt's Creek
Americans are just discovering this show but Canadians fell in love with the Rose family years ago. Season 4 might have been there strongest season yet. It was the perfect mix of LOL moments and moments that left you smiling. Alexis, David, and Moria always manage to put a smile on our faces with their zany ways and offbeat humor.

11. Superstore

If you love The Office or Parks and Rec, chances are you're going to love Superstore. A workplace comedy with an amazing ensemble cast that will leave you in stitches every week.

12. The Neighborhood

The Neighborhood
One of the best new comedies of the season, The Neighborhood will satisfy your funny bone every week. Everyone in the cast has great comedic timing and watching EVERYONE get the better of Calvin is always a lot of fun.

13. Mom

Mom never fails to make us laugh while treating the issues of addiction and recovery with respect. Alison Janney is remarkable and the addition of Kristen Johnston has given Bonnie Plunkett a lot to reassess about herself.
