Let's be honest here: the best comedies on Netflix reflect a wider selection of sub-par comedies in general. What happened to the rom-coms that still resonate with us today? Or the ’80s classics like Caddyshack and Heathers (starring reborn Stranger Things icon Winona Ryder) that we can't help but constantly think back to? With the exception of Greta Gerwig's wonderful Lady Bird (spoiler alert: it tops our list) and the pretty good Death of Stalin, it seems like we've lost our penchant for truly amazing comedies in the past few years. So consider this—our list of best comedies on Netflix to stream right now—a plea to all comedy writers out there: we need the laughs, so please work on something great.
