Funny Shows to Watch While High Pt 1

We’ve all been there. Scrolling through Netflix, Hulu, or HBO Now, searching for something funny to watch after you’ve smoked a bowl or joint. However, trying to find the perfect show to watch can be a total buzz kill. That’s why I’ve rounded up five shows to check out next time you’re in need of a laugh. Plus, all of the shows listed have strong (and hilarious) female lead actresses (YAS, QUEENS!)

Chewing Gum

Where to watch: Netflix

You know those shows you wish you could watch over and over to relive the funny parts? For me, that’s Chewing Gum. Written by and starring Michaela Coel, this British sitcom is real, raw, awkward and so funny it’ll make your stomach hurt. Women of color, this one is a must-watch. From colorism to interracial relationships, Chewing Gum weaves serious issues in with comedy to create the perfect package.

Broad City

Where to watch: Hulu

If you’re like me, you may have heard of Broad City before but never got around to actually watching it. Well, the time is now (or next time you want to hit the bong).

Created by and starring Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, this hilarious, female-focused comedy is a must-watch. From Illana making a tampon out of a pita to Abbi’s horrible flirting skills, there’s hardly ever a moment when you’re not cackling like a hyena from how uncomfortably funny they are. As an added bonus, Broad City never fails to highlight women’s issues such as menstruation product costs, masturbation and monogamous relationships. Oh and of course: weed.

Grace & Frankie

Where to watch: Netflix

I know. Your first instinct wasn’t to watch a show about two older women. But this is no Golden Girls (even though Golden Girls is the shit too).Grace & Frankie is about two older women who just found out their husband’s were having an affair for years and wanted to finally be together. While the transition was tough, the ladies womaned up, became roommates and started their own sex toy company. While the show is hilarious, it has it’s beautiful and emotional parts too. So grab a tissue box.

New Girl

Where to watch: Netflix

For a feel-good and occasionally romantic comedy, add New Girl to your watchlist. This show is based on a girl (Zooey Deschanel) who moved into a loft with three male roommates who each have their own issues. Whether Smicht is freaking out over his appearance or Winston’s having another conversation with his cat, these characters are sure to have you laughing.

Disjointed

Released in August 2017, Disjointed is a comical, light-hearted Netflix original about a dispensary owner named Ruth and her staff. Each episode dives deeper into each character’s backstory and how they grew interested in the marijuana industry. Watch this one with your friends or your smoke buddy for the best laugh.
