Amongst so many incredibly funny shows out there, it is very difficult for us to name the best show of all time. We can never stop binge watching those. Here’s a list of the evergreen sitcoms that you should add to your watch list, this World Laughter Day!
Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai is the first and one of the most trendy shows in the history of Indian television. It is the story of an upper-middle class family living in a luxurious apartment in Mumbai. The core comic element of the show is the relationship between the upper-class mother-in-law, Maya with her middle-class daughter-in-law, Monisha.
When it comes to comedy, Seinfeld would bag the best sitcom award on television any day! The continuing misadventures of Jerry Seinfeld and his neurotic New York friends managed to tickle our funny bones for years.
The Great Indian Laughter Challenge rings the bell, doesn’t it? We all love Sidhuji and Shekhar Suman as much as we love the amazing comedians on the show. It is the pioneer of the stand-up comedy in India.
Ricky Gervais created the best show “The Office,” in the comedy genre, a mockumentary in a paper sales company to show the lively behaviour of the comic figures around him. This show will always be the special one in the history of the American comedy.
Pankaj Kapoor’s incredible acting and dialogue delivery in Zabaan Sambhalke works perfectly with the mixed characters from all the different states. The show replaced Dekh Bhai Dekh, another sitcom that was one of our favourites.
We sometimes wonder how do they create such funny, moving and intelligent TV shows. Arrested Development despite critics, managed to grab the attention of all with its comedy.
Another show that had Pankaj Kapoor in it with his witty and hilarious ‘Shakaari’ attitude. Poor Mussadilal, he always had to endure every time he wanted to get his work done.
Our list wouldn’t be complete without this show! The adventures of a working family in the misfit city Springfield kept us all engaged all the time.
How can we ever forget Hum Paanch? It is one of the most remembered sitcoms about a man, Anand Mathur who was always a mess because of his five daughters – Meenakshi, Radhika, Kajal, Sweety and Choti.
Garry Shandling’s humour and the comedy he created with Dennis Klein is what we love the most about the show. It was the first major premium cable comedy show to handle adult materials. But more than anything else, it also created breath-taking fun over the years.
Indian television’s famous humorous family, the Parekh’s have made sure we never lose our laugh track. The show portrays the life of crazy people in the family and how they make the efforts to solve their combined family problems in a typical manner.
The show when it was aired didn’t get much of appreciation. But it surely maintained its quality, such that we can still re-watch it countless number of times.
