Stars: Fred Armisen, Bill Hader
Probably the most niche comedy show on this list (and creators Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas would probably agree), Documentary Now! Is an episodic anthology that parodies popular documentaries ranging from Grey Gardens to Stop Making Sense. Hader and Armisen play roles in every episode, alongside other comedic actors in guest appearances. Documentary Now!’s humor is bizarre and distinct, often hinging on the viewer having seen the documentary each episode is parodying. Not many shows can teach you film history and make you laugh, but Documentary Now! is great at it.
