From shows to movies, here are the best new comedies for late-night laughs.

We know your movie nights are precious.

Instead, hit a quick toke and head back to the couch for a hilarious evening of laughs and thrills.

We’ve picked out the top new comedies on Netflix this month to help make the most of your evening.

The Pentaverate (Series)

Canadian actor Mike Myers returns after a decade off-camera in his new Netflix series, The Pentaverate.

Catch Myers plays about seven different characters alongside other familiar faces like Keegan-Michael Key and Ken Jeong.

The series is based around the oldest secret society in history, but the only difference is… they’re nice.

The Bubble (Film)

Ever wonder what a movie set looked like during the age of the COVID-19 pandemic?

You can sort of find out in Judd Apatow’s new Netflix movie, The Bubble.

This hilarious satire flick features renowned actors like Fred Armisen, Iris Apatow, Keegan-Michael Key, Maria Bakalova, Leslie Mann, Kate McKinnon, and more.

Bullshit (Series)

This isn’t really a comedy, but Howie Mandel will make you laugh your ass off. 

In this new game show, Mandel takes contestants through several tough questions. Instead of being disqualified if they get it wrong, judges have to guess if the contestant’s reasoning behind their answer is believable or bullshit. 

Watch as contestants lie like no tomorrow to questions they’ve never heard of. Bullshit is available now on Netflix. 

The Bob's Burgers Movie (Film)

That’s right, the Belcher family is back and better than ever in their own movie.

If you love watching the burger-making family on their hit show, Bob’s Burgers, watch as they take summer by the horns in their new movie.

It will be available on streaming platforms on May 27.

Tyler Perry's A Madea Homecoming (Film)

Who doesn’t love Tyler Perry’s sassy character Madea? 

This time around, he brings the beloved character back after retiring her in A Madea Family Funeral

She hits up her great grandson’s graduation from college. Similar to most Madea franchise films, expect secrets revealed, insane hiccups, and a whole lot of laughs. The film is currently available on Netflix. 

Metal Lords (Film)

Watch as a pair of musically-challenged high school students team up for the upcoming Battle of The Bands.

This film is directed by Game of Thrones co-creator D.B. Weiss. When the boys get ridiculed for not being a “real band,” they search for a bass player. When they find out the new kid is a cello player, they invite her to join the band and prepare for the big event. 

Senior Year (Film)

Rebel Wilson returns to the big screen in this knee-slapping Netflix film. After living life as a popular high school cheerleader, Wilson suffers a dramatic accident and wakes up 20 years later as a grown woman looking for the prom queen crown.

The movie features Alicia Silverstone, Zoë Chao, Justin Hartley, Angourie Rice, and more. Senior Year will be available on Netflix on May 13. 

Munchies

Your local grocery store might carry your favorite movie munchies. 

But any stoner can agree that making your own from scratch brings a sense of accomplishment. Plus, the added THC content in this delicious recipe below is a huge bonus.

Ingredients

  • 1 large milk chocolate bar
  • 12 tablespoons of melted cannabutter
  • 1 ¼ cups of sugar (250 g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup of all-purpose flour (95 g)
  • ¼ cup of cocoa powder (30 g)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Steps

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Take an 8-inch (20 cm) square baking dish and line it with parchment paper.
  3. Take your milk chocolate bar and cut it into squares. Melt half of your squares in the microwave in 20-second intervals, and save the other half for later use.
  4. Grab a large bowl and mix the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer. Add eggs and vanilla, then beat for 1-2 minutes until the mixture appears fluffy and light in color.
  5. Whisk in the melted chocolate (make sure it’s not too hot, or else the eggs will cook).
  6. Take a sifter and sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Carefully and slowly fold the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients. Be sure not to overmix, or the brownies will come out with a cake-like texture.
  7. Add the other half of your chocolate squares and fold them into the mixture.
  8. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how fudgy you want the brownies to be (less time, the more fudgy).
  9. When complete, allow the brownies to cool completely, serve, and enjoy!
