    I have no recommendations, but Big Bang Theory is a funny show if you understand the humor.

    Whats a good anime? I havent watched one in ages. And yea, i love big bang theory, ive got a soft spot for physics and of course all the comic book stuff. Plus, the fact that Sheldon has a big ass Green Lantern figurine makes it a plus to coolness.

    Toradora! is definitely one to watch. Comedy/Romance/Tsundere and Drama in the second half. Definitely one of my top anime.

    Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is pretty sweet too, mechs, politics, some comedy, drama, cheesiness, but only watched the first season.

    Azumanga Daioh, comedy, episodic, pretty random and a great cast.
    Kimura-sensei... Without a doubt the funniest character. And Osaka-san says the most random things.

    Monster, my top anime. Amazing story, where there is absolutely no filler and everything seems to fit, great cast, animation that really suits it, gripping...
    You should watch this one immediately.

    Party Down on Starz now in season 2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FT2DOz2McW8 - this trailer doesn't do it justice
    Found it on complete accident and was like, "Oh no, not this shit again," but it hasn't failed me yet.
    It's a mix of comedy styles which would come across as convoluted if it weren't for the cast. Sadly Jane Lynch is no longer with the cast because of her Glee duties, though she does appear in cameos and she did complete the first season; she's just as original and engaging here as she is on Glee.

    It's full of guest stars. New venues each week. The story isn't heavy-handed and the writers know when to take a back seat to a good couple+ laughs.

    Real Time with Bill Maher
    It shits on Comedy Central's Colbert and Stewart because A) it's a roundtable forum of comedy and politics and not just 30 minutes of monologue from 1 perspective, and B) it's on HBO so it can literally shit all it wants without ever being censored.

    Breaking Bad is dope. Went through the first two seasons in a week.

    Berserk is my favorite anime, if anything, watch that. It's not comedy though.
