You can thank ‘Parks and Recreation’ star Amy Poehler for Comedy Central’s latest comedy hit ‘Broad City.’ The show stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson as two down on their luck millenials trying to make it in New York City.
It’s smart, funny, and often strange and ‘Broad City’ complements the tone and style of humour of ‘Workaholics’ effortlessly.
One of my all time top shows, the US remake of an Australian TV series stars Elijah Wood as a young lawyer who is on the brink of suicide. Things take a surreal turn when he starts seeing his neighbour’s dog as a man dressed up in a dog suit.
It’s a poignant and funny TV show with most of the laughs being derived from Wilfred, the dog. He cusses, drinks, and smokes pot and he would make an excellent addition to the cast of ‘Workaholics.’
Many people missed this TV show. It was short lived but it has developed quite a cult following. It tells the story of a catering company and the oddball folks who work for it.
Most are failed actors, some are writers, but they all goof off, and none of them take their jobs seriously.
Jay Baruchel heads up the cast in ‘Man Seeking Woman’, perhaps the most surreal (bar ‘Louie’) show on TV. It tells the story of a man in his late twenties who has recently been dumped by his girlfriend.
Now he has to find his place in the world and it quickly becomes clear that he’s completely unprepared to start dating again.
‘Trailer Park Boys’ is Canada’s finest export (in my opinion), and it follows the highs and lows of a group of friends living in the titular trailer park. Their lives revolve around petty crime, smoking dope, and drinking booze.
Similar to the narrative in ‘Workaholics’, ‘Trailer Park Boys’ focuses on the increasingly foolish and stupid exploits of its characters.
Perhaps the most unpleasant comedy series on TV, ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ is also very funny. It’s the story of a group of friends who run a bar but each character is narcissistic, as a group they’re exclusive, and as a clique they treat everyone else terribly.
It’s smart, it riffs on contemporary values, and it effectively satirises mass media texts. It also features a career best performance from Danny DeVito.
This is the second TV series like ‘Workaholics’ that tells the story of an exclusive clique, ‘The League’ considers the lives of a group of friends and their fantasy football competition.
Mumblecore superstar Mark Duplass stars alongside his ‘Puffy Chair’ costar Katie Aselton in this uncomfortable, funny, and often cruel ensemble comedy.
Sadly the British cult hit TV show is nearing its conclusion. The collective stories of Mark, Jeremy, and Super Hans will come to an end. But they will leave us with nine seasons worth of comedy TV.
Personally this has always been a favourite of mine and I think that fans of shows similar to ‘Workaholics’ will find much to enjoy in this British series.
Comic Josh Thomas leads the Australian comedy series ‘Please Like Me.’ It perhaps bears more similarities to ‘Broad City’ than ‘Workaholics’ but its comedic take on the trials of being young and finding your place in the world are markedly similar.
I love TV shows like ‘Workaholics’. I’ve attempted to reign in my list but there are some other comedies that I think deserve a mention.
There’s HBO’s ‘Silicon Valley’, a comedy drama about tech entrepreneurs written by Mike Judge, there’s the strange Thunderbirds influenced live action Australian show ‘Danger Five’, and then there’s ‘Louie’ and ‘Maron’, two TV comedies written by and starring middle aged comics.
There’s plenty here for you to pick from but please let me know if I’ve missed anything out with a comment below.
