High on the list is all the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons from about 1937 to 1964.
Hillbilly Hare with the square dance was pretty funny.
Carol Brunet Show. Faulty Towers. Original SNL Bass-a-Matic. Just to name 3, there are more.
Dumb and dumber, airplane, balls of fury, euro trip, groundhog day, superbad, anchorman, monty python, shaun of the dead, step brothers, wedding crashers
George Carlin live in 1994 after smoking a fat joint. My gut ached severely after the show.
I shouldn't have to scroll down this far without seeing a mention of Chappelle's Show.
Anything Monty Python for old school.
From the 90's, gotta love Mr. Show with Bob and David.
Modern day, Adult Swim has a bunch: Rick and Morty, Mike Tyson Mysteries, Dream Corp LLC, Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell, and if you want way, WAY out there, Tropical Cop Tales.
Quoted from Pahuffman:
Don't forget the Drew Carey Show.
Never understood the accolades. Always found Mimi about as funny as Rosanne (i.e. not).
My old man liked Ray Romano's show, gotta give that a go someday. I mean, I don't dislike understated or dry humor (big Bob Newhart fan) but funniest? I think it requires some absurdity. I get enough plain situational humor in my own life.
Used to love the Dean Martin Roasts
Airplane was great
Blazing Saddles was greater

Title says “Funniest Show You’ve Ever Seen”- people are putting down movies, entire series, multiple answers... OP gets edited to nothing- now that’s funnier then a lot of these wrong answers.
Correct answer- Young Ones “University Challenge”
You’re welcome. Thread saved.
Good one for sure!
I've seen a lot of funny shit, I thrive on it. But for me, no show in recent history or any history has come up with so much funny stuff as Two and a Half Men.
I thought How I Met Your Mother was dull before I got into it. It was just the show that was on on Monday nights before the good stuff came on later (Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory were after that if I remember right). They have a lot of jokes that are callbacks to things that happened sometimes several seasons prior. After going back and watching all the seasons, it became one of my favorite re-watchable comedies.
Others not mentioned much:
Trailer Park Boys
Dads (only had one short season, but I find it hilarious)
Vicar of Dibley
Kentucky Fried Movie
Tromeo and Juliet
Benny Hill Show
Bizarre (John Byner)
South Park "Christian Rock Hard" episode
Scrubs episode (title escapes me) with guest star Colin Hay from Men at Work
Family Guy episodes featuring the chicken fights.
Rick Wakeman's acceptance speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The Gang Goes to a Water Park
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 12, Episode 2
Sergeant Bilko (Phil Silvers)
Sid Cesar's 'Your show of Shows'
Get Smart (Mel Brooks & Buck Henry)
Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle
