I loved KOTH. I loved it because it relied on character humor as oposed to something like Family Guy. If you didnt really know the characters it would be pretty easy to dismiss as unfunny or boring. I thought it was perfect.

Non-Animated Sitcoms I like:

The Office(US (seasons 1-5 the current season is pretty horrid)))
Flight of the Conchords
Community
Parks and Recreation (my favorite currently)
30 Rock
Its Always Sunny
Malcolm In the Middle
Seinfeld
Arrested Development
(Notice only 1 has a laugh track. Do I see a pattern?)

Animated:

KOTH
The Simpsons
Futurama
American Dad
South Park
Home Movies




I know there's probably more that I'm forgetting...

I find excessive wordiness and unusual phrasing very funny, for some reason. Shows like Frisky Dingo and Archer do this pretty well, along with obscure literary references whcih are fun.
It also makes me laugh really hard when things end unexpectedly (for an example of this, watch the South Park episode "Trapper Keeper.")

In terms of televison the only comedies I watch are

South Park, The Boondocks, robot chicken and Futurama

In terms of forms of humor I really enjoy sattire, dark humor, gallows humor, nerd humor and the occasional dirty joke.

Despite being American, I find the British quite funny. As for American humor, I like South Park, and Tosh.0 and The Office. But I'm a huge Monty Python fan. I've seen all the movies, and I've seen every episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus twice. Not to offend, but most American comdey is riddled with toilet humor. I tend to like something a little more sophisticated and dry, but some toilet humor is funny.

Most animated comedy is boring and unfunny (I'm looking at you Adult Swim). And most of the rest are only good for a few chuckles. The only shows I find funny are South Park (duh), Futurama, and Aqua Teens.

I don't watch sitcoms, mostly because when I ever I do see part of an episode I don't find it funny, so I don't watch them of my own accord.

My favorite types of jokes are situational. Futurama relies heavily on this. I do like toilet humor, and shock humor can be good in small doses. I'm not big on satire (strange considering I love South Park) or modern cultural references. Dark comedy is good if done in a lighthearted way, if that makes sense.

I love "wtf" humor. If you can catch some episodes of Spliced! or Posh Nosh, that's the kinda thing I'm talking about.
