We get it, sometimes you need a little somethin’ somethin’ to pick you up and have a little laugh at. Thankfully, this world is full of hilarious people who have made a living out of their one-liners.

Your ultimate goal is to end up doing that thing where you’re laughing so hard you’ve gone beyond noises, and it’s turned into that silent wheeze where you’re just rocking back and forth. You know the one.

These are the funniest podcasts to subscribe to right now.

My Favourite Murder

We’re going to kick off this cracker of a list with a podcast that merges two of our favourite genres—comedy and true crime. Now if you know anything about anything, you’ll know that true crime podcasts have blown up over the past year, and now that Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark have married the cult movement with a few (thousand) laughs, I guess you could say we’re well and truly part of the #MFM squad.

Anna Faris Is Unqualified

Because Anna Faris is just funny AF, her new podcast is 100% laughs on laughs on laughs. The format of the podcast is kind of all over the place, which we guess only makes it funnier, and is guaranteed to boost your mood. Anna will give you sooo much (unqualified) advice, you’ll just about sink a bloody battleship.

Bitch Sesh: A Real Housewives Breakdown

If you know us at all, you know that in the world of reality TV, the housewives reign supreme. In honour of the iconic women we love to hate, Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider host their weekly podcast to have a laugh at just about everything the ridiculous ladies do. They’ll crack a few jokes at Lisa Vanderpump, and even share their own self-deprecating stories. Get around it housewives fans, you’ll have a stitch before the end.

My Brother, My Brother, and Me

This one is the work of three real life brothers who get together to dish out ‘advice’. We put advice in inverted commas because each episode opens with a disclaimer not to follow a single word these guys tell you. Understand? It’s probably for the best TBH, we mean after all, everyone’s only really here for a laugh. Each episode they will go through questions sent in by listeners and ‘attempt’ to come to a solution. See what we did with the word attempt? You get it now.

2 Dope Queens

This one is guaranteed to have you in tears, in only minutes. 2 Dope Queens is all about young, energetic, quick witted humour that gets even the most serious individuals giggling uncontrollably. They bring on exciting new comedians every now and then which is a great way to keep the laughs flowing throughout their super casual interview style episodes.

Do Go On

This Melbourne based podcast revolves around current affairs, where the knee slappin’ hosts go out and research a few topics before coming back and presenting their stories to each other. They dig up some damn funny (not to mention intriguing) facts, because podcasts are technically educational, right?
