50 funniest Web series
The best and funniest Web series, from Burning Love to Planet Unicorn, show us the future of a young medium perfect for the Internet.
If the Internet is our new TV, the 50 Web series we’ve chosen as our funniest are among the vanguard. From scrappy, silly animated work such as Planet Unicorn to corporate-sponsored episodics like Burning Love, the best iterations of this young genre are here; all of them, no matter how high their production values, share the ideological freedom of the Net and some of the DIY sensibility we hope indicates the direction of the medium’s future. For the purposes of this list, we did not consider sketch groups with thematically varied output (e.g., BriTANick, Harvard Sailing Team) and vlogs (e.g. Daily Grace)—many of which do amazing work—and defined Web series as a show that follows a story, or at least a conceit that carries across multiple episodes. And we included Web series that have made the jump to TV.
You are missing "Rack & Ruin"... I think it just launched and it's brilliant. Hilarious take on the high-end fashion world... set in a NYC SoHo boutique with Markie Post ("Night Court", as the manic store manager. She kills it! http://www.womenyoushouldknow.net/wysktv/
Why didn't DATING IN THE MIDDLE AGES make the list. Hysterical…http://datinginthemiddleages.com
Thanks for the list! I just finished up Burning Love and now I'll have plenty of pickings for how to waste more hours of my life. :)
How come red vs blue by roosterteeth here they were making the best of content befor the term web series was been used and were the first to actualy do a web series.
I enjoyed the list. A new series that we just released is "Street Academy"; a brand-new original sitcom about recent college graduates who fall for the sexy world of Social Media. "The Office" meets "Mad Men". Let us know what you think. #StreetAcademyTV http://www.glassshackfilms.com/street-academy-sitcom

Good list. you can also see more web series @ http://www.shortz.tv
Very happy to see Strong Bad E-mails at #4. Today's YouTube fans are missing out. Nothing on YouTube right now even comes close to being as good as the Strong Bad E-mails are, or homestarrunner.com is.
Yo- where's East Willyb on here? WWW.EASTWILLYB.COM. One of the BEST shows online RIGHT NOW! Get with it Time Out!
Really surprised that East WillyB is not on here since it was named by the NY Times as one of the best webseries to watch. What happened Time Out NY?
Epic Rab Battles are AMAZING! There was a time they weren't so funny, but the new ones are very good.
web sitcom "The Diner" is must-see computer tv... the pilot "Somebody's Somebody" rocks... as do the other 9 episodes www.youtube.com/dinerseries

By the way, sweet-heart Penny didn't think the show was all that Funny neither, bless her. siggy2... Penny - "It's OK. Captain Hammer will save us."
Actually, no, the glorious DrH Musical's sequel continues to be indefinitely delayed. As Joss has repeated elsewhere, he's gonna be busy for the next few years doing his Avengers sequel. --------- Siggy: "With my Freeze Ray I will STOP the world."
