40 Greatest Sketch-Comedy TV Shows of All Time

From Caesar to Schumer, 65 years of the Land Shark, the Chicken Lady and a bunch of Muppets

33. 'Funny or Die Presents' (2010-2011)

The bizarre, hit-and-miss sketch comedy shorts usually relinquished to websites like Funny or Die briefly lived on HBO under the banner of Funny or Die Presents. Imagine a whole show of uncensored SNL Digital Shorts. With the star power of FOD cofounder Will Ferrell and pretty much everyone from Anchorman and The Daily Show filling uncensored skits like procedural crime drama spoof 'Holdup,' the reality TV off the deep end of 'You Want to See a Dead Body?,' and Tim and Eric's Two-and-a-Half-Men-on-Percocet sitcom called 'Just 3 Boyz,' the show peeked into an alternate (and lovingly low-budget) entertainment universe. 'Drunk History' brought out issue-oriented agendas between laughs in this world and eventually spawned a show of its own. But to quote "host" Ed Haligan in the first episode, the show was at its core, "Basically, the same kind of horseshit we throw up on the website."
