Comedies without laugh tracks?

I have never liked laugh tracks, but I have always been able to just tune them out. My partner, however, hates laugh tracks with an intensity usually reserved for child molesters and people who talk at the theater, so I can't watch most comedy tv when he is home.

Any recommendations for comedy shows (not necessarily current) without laugh tracks?

Thanks for your suggestions -


Scrubs, The Bernie Mac Show, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, Malcolm in the Middle, Todd Margaret, Blackish, Arrested Development, My Name Is Earl, The Middle, Stella (2005), The Office, Blunt Talk, Bored to Death, Silicon Valley, Flight of the Conchords, Louie, Psych, Community, Man Seeking Women, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Black Jesus, The Last Man on Earth.

Just to name a few...

Weird is the new normal.


Nice - thank you!


Sitcoms without laughing tracks have to be special. Otherwise they will be pushed out of the way for shows with a laughing track. I don't need to be told when to laugh. But laughter tracks make a lot of shows special. They make them feel like it's a happy world on display. Without a laughter track it's a roll of the dice as to if I take to it or not. A laughter track puts it in my favor. There's too much *beep* *beep* in the media these days. Laughter is escapism.
