What We’re Watching: Comedy Edition

What We’re Watching is our regular series where we help you choose what to watch next! This week, we cover TV shows and movies that’ll have you in stitches.
Need a laugh? We got you.

The Big Sick 

Equal parts comedy and romance, The Big Sick follows the hilarious and TRUE story of how rising star Kumail Nanjiani met his wife, and is streaming right now on Stan.

Broad City

Sure Broad City has been around for a while now, but we’re huge fans of binge-watching our faves on repeat. Broad City is the unapologetic comedy centred around two charmingly awkward women that essentially just say what we’re all thinking. And in great news, all three series are now available on Stan.

A Simple Favour

Sure, A Simple Favour looks like more of a stylish thriller than a comedy, but we assure you, the laugh out loud moments director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Spy, Arrested Development, The Heat) has become famous for well and truly ring true here too. A Simple Favour is in cinemas now.

Men In Black

Take a trip down memory lane with Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) and Jay (Will Smith) as they protect the world from alien invaders before the NEW Men In Black movie comes out in June 2019, starring our very own Chris Hemsworth. Streaming now on Stan.

The Disaster Artist

Sitting pretty at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, The Disaster Artist is a dark comedy starring funny man James Franco, about the making of the cult classic, The Room. You can watch it now on Stan.

Coming to America

It was announced at CinemaCon this year that there’ll be a sequel to the 80s classic, Coming to America. Whilst we don’t know any details except that Eddie Murphy will star in it, it does make us want to re-watch the original. Lucky it’s on Netflix!
