The Forty-Year-Old Version

A great debut film with quite a witty title, this is a must-watch. Radha Blank is a writer. But that’s not all that she is because she is also a director and quite a star these days. Furthermore, her semi-autobiographical creation “The Forty-Year-Old-Version” is a playwright that shows her reaching 40 years of age and trying to invent herself as a rapper. Although she’s already a writer and a director and doesn’t need to do more, we think she will be successful at being a singer as well. However, once you watch the show you will find that it is quite honest about a lot of aspects of life such as age, race, and professional goals. With her wit and comedy, she has produced a show that is truly a treat to watch!

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Taika Wakita rose to fame after directing Thor. Taika became quite the star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to this globally acclaimed movie. Now, in the “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”, we see this New Zealander filmmaker directing a class apart that revolves around a sullen teenage orphan. Julian Dennison who is starring in this role goes on quite the revolt against his foster uncle. This happens when child services come from him. From here on, the comedy begins!


Filmmaker Christopher Guest is known for creating mockumentaries. Luckily, all of them land big in the industry and successfully find public appreciation. Mascots, a Netflix original movie, is about oddball sports mascots. They gather for an annual competition. The cast includes all-stars namely Jane Lynch, Fred Willard, Chris O’Dowd, and Christopher Guest as well. Watch their wit and humor as all of them battle it out to become the best mascot!

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a must-watch if you want to see British comedy at its very best. The comedy revolves around Monty Python members. Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin find themselves in this masterfully directed masterpiece. The comedy is about King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Enjoy this great show from Netflix as the characters search for the Holy Grail. You will see a lot of funny things happening a lot the way as they embark on their quest to find it and more!

The Muppets

Jim Henson is the creator of the Muppets. He is also praised highly for creating highly popular comedy characters such as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and Fozzie Bear, etc. In the Muppets, you will find all of these characters making a comeback. The return of the co-star and co-writer Jason Segel takes things to a whole new level. You will find Segel playing the role of a human Muppet on his mission to bring together all the Muppets who are going to be wiped away by a developer who’s pure evil! It’s a great plot and you’ll love it! These shows are a treat to watch and allow for a convenient break from the tensions in life.
