1. Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas S1

Wyatt Cenac is as funny as he is serious and takes his wit around the US to tackle tough topics and investigate real-world solutions. Not afraid to talk to anyone, he goes to the heart of local problems in this late-night talk-show series.This is the antidote to the news that you’ve been looking for.

2. Playing House S3


Maggie and Emma face their biggest test yet: not the baby, not work, not the bossy neighbours, but medical news that would stop any of us in our tracks. Luckily the two besties have not lost any of their crazy humour! Seasons 1 and 2 are also on Showmax if you want to binge from the very beginning.

3. Superstore S3

Cloud 9 is back after being destroyed in a tornado. There’s plenty to do before the doors open, from restocking the shelves in record time to dealing with that kiss between Jonah and Amy. The new season of this wacky workplace comedy is just as hilarious as Seasons 1 and 2, which are also on Showmax.

4. HBO’s Camping

Jennifer Garner leads a stellar cast in this HBO original about an obsessively organised woman who arranges a birthday camping trip where she tries to aggressively control everything. But her family, friends and fate get in the way. This darkly funny series has attracted more than its fair share of coverage, and it’s time you saw it for yourself.

5. Brooklyn Nine-Nine S5

Detective Jake Peralta is a great cop, but also a total goofing slacker. Fortunately he and his fellow oddball colleagues are great at their job. Don't miss the much-loved modern sitcom that is already a classic - Showmax is the only place you can stream all five seasons in SA.

6. The Adult Swim Collection

An extensive catalogue of Adult Swim’s weirdly wonderful, eclectic, surprising, quirky and surreal content, including multi-award-winning animated series Samurai Jack, Robot Chicken, and Rick and Morty, along with fan favourites Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Jellies, and live action comedies Black Jesus and Eagleheart.

7. Future Man S1

When Josh beats an impossible video game, soldiers from the future choose him to save the world. But it turns out he's much more of a loser than they thought… Starring Josh Hutcherson of Hunger Games fame, this ridiculous sci-fi is the light-hearted comedy that binge-watching dreams are made of.

8. AP Bio S1-2

Jack is a brilliant philosophy professor, but his dream job is stolen. So he takes a job at a high school - but not to teach! No, he's gonna use his genius students to get revenge and save his career in this hilarious new comedy.
