From an award-winning dramedy to an iconic Australian series, here are the best TV comedies to watch on Stan.

You know when you just have one of those weeks? 

The workday seems to run forever, the washing is piling up and if you have a child they’ve been sent home from daycare (again) with a sniffly nose. 

That’s when you know it’s time to pop your feet up and get stuck into a comedy series to turn things around. A good giggle can get your serotonin boosted in no time.

The good news? Stan is absolutely stacked with rollicking, high-spirited, knee-slapping comedy shows at the moment and we’ve pulled together a list of our faves. 

Whether you’re after a comedy with an Aussie spin, or a dramedy that will make you think or even a classic to hit the nostalgia feels – there’s something here for everyone.

It’s a big call but Hacks might just be one of the best comedies created in recent history.

The first season was released in 2021 to great acclaim and with season three just around the corner fans are giddy with excitement. If you want to watch a brilliantly written comedy script come to life by two very talented actors in Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder then this is the show for you. 

There are laughs (and heart-warming moments) aplenty as a struggling writer lands a job with an out-of-touch stand-up comic and an unlikely bond forms between the two.
