It's hard work making a comedy. On the one hand, it's not an expensive genre demanding crazy CGI sequences and a huge stunt budget, but on the other, you can't just string together loads of gags and expect a masterpiece. For comedy to work in film, there has to be a solid story and character holding everything together. And there's another thing. I always find a cream pie to the face hilarious, but someone else might find that type of tomfoolery infuriating. For that reason alone, it's tough to furnish a comedy with universal humor that hits everyone's funnybone. That's why the best way to discover what really tickles your ribs is by working your way through this list of the best 25 comedies on Netflix. There's bound to be at least one that works for you. Probably several, in fact.
