Are you looking for something to make you laugh? Need something to watch while you’re cooped up at home? Here are 5 of my favorite comedies that you can watch with your whole family:
1. Last Man Standing (FOX)
The show centers around Mike Baxter (Tim Allen), a manly Colorado man at a sporting goods store where he’s head of marketing. At work he is surrounded by his best friends Hector Elizondo (2011-Present), Jonathan Adams (2012-Present) and Jay Leno (2015-Present). At home he has his wife (Nancy Travis), 3 daughters, sons-in-law, grandson and an exchange student, Krista Marie Yu (2018-Present).

3. Castle (ABC)
A best selling writer tails NYPD detective Kate Beckett for inspiration.
Nathan Fillion (The Rookie) and Stana Katic (Absentia)
4. Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In (NBC/Amazon Prime)
An American sketch comedy television program from the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The show regularly featured the likes of Goldie Hawn, Lily Tomlin, Peter Lawford, Johnny Carson and John Wayne.
5. Doctor Who (BBC)
A time lord and his companions save the world in this science-fiction comedy.
The show has seen 13 stars in the role of “The Doctor” and even more star as his/her companions. Personal favorites have included Tom Baker (with Elisabeth Sladen, Matthew Waterhouse, and Louise Jameson) Peter Davison (with Matthew Waterhouse and Sarah Sutton), Paul McGann (with Daphne Ashbrook), Christopher Eccleston (with Billie Piper, John Barrowman), and David Tennant (with Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman, John Barrowman, Elisabeth Sladen).
