Looking for some easy going, feel-good content to distract you from the daily shit storm of news? Let us help a little, with our top 5 NETFLIX recommendations for that much needed chuckle therapy.
MAGIC FOR HUMANS
This show hosted by Justin Willman, uses his harmless cheeky personality to play dumb tricks on humans of all ages. It's perfect for that little mood boost if you're feeling stressed, or just looking for a way to pass the time other than scrolling for days on instagram.
Two modern comedy heroes Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly star in this classic film 'Step Bothers', which anyone with siblings can relate to. Having a brother or sister messing with your stuffcan spark rage in the best of us. If anyone dragged their nut sack on my drum kit, you better believe beats are in order! Am I referring to a personal story, or a scene from the movie, I'll let you work that one out.
HAVE A GOOD TRIP; ADVENTURES IN PSYCHEDELICS
Admittedly, this one might not be for everyone. But if you like the sound of celebrity's recounting their psychedelic drug taking experiences, imagined and acted out by comedians, then this might be right up your ally. Watch the likes of Ben Stiller, David Cross, A$AP Rocky and Sting relive their weirdest trips, which depending on your inclination will either make you wanna go foraging for mushrooms or go pour yourself a large glass of wine.
If this list was subject to hierarchy, this would no doubt be in our top position. Each episode is exactly 21 minutes but you'll clock in a good 200 laughs per episode. Super fast, high energy comedy following the lives and cases of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It's simply the most enjoyable thing to watch this cast and writing team on the top of their game.
THE IT CROWD
This shows been around 14 years already, but remains in my opinion, one of the best British comedy series out there. It follows ultra-nerd IT technicians Roy and Moss, managed by techno-clueless Jen, and will remind you that no matter how many faux pars you might have dropped in the workplace, it's surely nothing on what this weird bunch manage.
