Parks and Recreation is another workplace comedy series that stars Amy Poehler as a hard-working and dedicated employee in the local parks department in small-town Pawnee, Indiana. The first few seasons has her attempting to build a small park in an abandoned pit with the help of her co-workers and this is where the antics begin.

This all-star cast in Parks and Rec are absolutely hilarious with one another and the mockumentary style of filming will immediately remind you of the awkward and laugh out loud situations that occur in The Office.

Poehler is an absolute gem and while the show is meant to be extremely funny, there are some really emotional moments down the line that feel very deserving for those die-hard fans out there.

You should be able to watch the entirety of Parks and Rec on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine takes a similar style that was made famous by The Office and throws a camera into a police station. Instead of focusing on action and shootouts, is more comedic than anything, showing the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg, who plays a very talented detective in NYC but even though he knows what he’s doing, Andy’s character is very immature, causing mischief and wild antics throughout the sitcom, while also solving crimes.

You can now watch this show on Hulu and NBC, and if you’re a big fan of workplace comedies like The Office, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Former SNL cast members Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are one of the best comedic duos out there on television and Portlandia is their baby that constantly pokes fun at the wacky and unique people that live in Portland, Oregon.

Each episode focuses on several different storylines with Armisen and Brownstein playing a variety of different characters like owners of a feminist bookstore that only sells female-authored works, a couple that is dedicated to eating only farm-raised chicken, and a bunch of other characters that are downright hilarious.

It’s a very weird show that does not take itself seriously at all and if you like awkwardly funny and random television shows, Portlandia is where it’s at!
