Hulu has quietly emerged as a formidable force in the streaming wars, with an impressive roster of critically acclaimed and fan-favorite original comedies that rival the likes of Netflix and Disney+. From murder mysteries to coming-of-age dramedies, Hulu’s comedy library boasts a diverse range of offerings that consistently push the boundaries of humor and storytelling.

At the top of the list is “Reservation Dogs,” a groundbreaking comedy that centers on four teenagers trying to earn enough money to leave their reservation community by committing petty crimes. This refreshing portrayal of indigenous life is not only hilarious but also poignant, capturing the universal feeling of going adolescence while grappling with the harsh realities of life on a reservation.

Shriller and more nuanced is “The Bear,” a dramedy that follows an award-winning chef as he takes over his recently deceased brother’s sandwich shop in Chicago. With its unique blend of humor and drama, “The Bear” has dominated conversations since its debut, establishing itself as a modern classic.

Ranking closely behind is “Only Murders in the Building,” a whodunit that brings together an unlikely alliance of three individuals to solve the many murders taking place in their luxurious Upper West Side building. With its enchanting cast and subversive approach to mystery tropes, “Only Murders in the Building” has become Hulu’s greatest surprise.

Rounding out the top five are “The Great,” a satirical and largely fictional take on Catherine the Great’s life, “Ramy,” a comedy that examines the clash of cultures between an Egyptian-American and his liberal community, “Shrill,” an ode to optimism and body positivity starring Aidy Bryant, and “Future Man,” a self-aware and meta sci-fi comedy starring Josh Hutcherson.

Other notable mentions include “How I Met Your Father,” a spin-off of the beloved Fox comedy, “High Fidelity,” a gender-bent remake of the 2000 film, and “PEN15,” a cringe comedy that reimagines middle school as a chaotic and embarrassing experience.

With a total of nine original comedies lauded for their clever writing, witty humor, and talented ensembles, Hulu has undoubtedly cemented its status as a force to be reckoned with in the streaming industry. As the competition continues to heat up, Hulu’s comedic arsenal remains a treasure trove of laughter and critical acclaim, making it an attractive destination for audiences and creators alike.
