You might have already availed of our list of 5 choice comedies to watch on Netflix - now we're adding some recommendations from RTÉ Player, to keep those laughs coming...

Paths to Freedom

Let's begin with a homegrown classic - Ian Fitzgibbon's mockumentary stars and Brendan Coyle and Michael McElhatton as Jeremy and Rats, who have both recently been released from a Dublin prison. The road to rehabilitation, it transpires, is paved with comedy gold...


When his college degree is challenged as a fake, lawyer and schemer Jeff Winger is forced to return to school... Before he created the cultural phenomenon that is Rick And Morty, Dan Harmon gave us this cult classic, with a peerless ensemble that includes Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Ken Jeong, Donald Glover, Yvette Nicole Brown and Chevy Chase.

Naked Camera

This popular hidden-camera comedy series unleashed larger-than-life characters on the unsuspecting Irish public, with PJ Gallagher, Patrick McDonnell, and Maeve Higgins playing memorable characters like Jumperman, English Geezer, The Fixer, Dirty Auld Wan and the immortal Jake Stevens.

Black Books

Dylan Moran, Bill Bailey and Tamsin Greig star in this much-loved offbeat sitcom about bad-tempered, eccentric bookshop owner Bernard Black (Moran) and his long-suffering assistant Manny (Bailey). It remains an absolute masterclass in comedy from a pair of the most-loved standups in the game.


A lonely man dreams of winning his local pub quiz every week for a year. But first he needs to find a new team member... Writer Damien Owens' loveable comedy about the members of a Monaghan pub quiz team only lasted two seasons back in 2011-12, but remains a firm favourite. Anyone for a revival?
