The Office (US)

With its aesthetic in the form of a mockumentary, its humor always bordering on political correctness and its ultra embarrassing characters, Fiasco has obviously been compared to the monument of the type: The Office. This American mockumentary, adapted from the British series by Ricky Gervais, follows the daily life of Dunder Mifflin, specializing in the sale of paper. At its head: Michael, the king of discomfort, played by Steve Carell (The Morning Show).

A veritable factory of gifs and embarrassing jokes, this essential of streaming platforms has taken a more feel-good over its 9 seasons, with deeply endearing protagonists. The Office is quite simply one of the best series ever produced, all genres combined.

Planet Cunk (Cunk on Earth)

You have probably already seen a documentary in your life, telling the great History of humanity in all its forms. But this past suddenly becomes a lot more fun, when it is told to us by Philomena Cunk, a fake British journalist. She carries her questions to the four corners of the world in Planet Cunk (Cunk on Earth)a hilarious mockumentary.

Faced with very serious experts, historians and sociologists, the reporter sincerely questions how mummies could ride bicycles or the status of Jesus as the first victim of cancel culture. In just 5 episodes of 30 minutes each, actress Diane Morgan (Afterlife) demonstrates all his completely absurd comic talent, and elevates embarrassment to the rank of art.

American Vandal

Another mockumentary, another atmosphere with American Vandal. Where the characters of Fiasco seek to unmask a mysterious crow, here, it is a question of finding who could have vandalized 27 cars in a high school, using slightly phallic graffiti. Maliciously parodying documentaries true crime which are the heyday of Netflix, the two seasons ofAmerican Vandal take us on a false investigation, with on-camera interviews and a cork board to boot.

You don’t have to be afraid of pee-poo humor to appreciate this satire at the heart of adolescent torments, two episodes of which are nonetheless named “Giant Diarrhea” as well as “Linguistics of poop”. An improbable mix between American Pie And Making a Murdererwhich is well worth the detour.

Afterlife

Before experiencing immense international success with its American remake, The Office was above all a little British nugget from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Since Fiasco is clearly inspired by this original version, but unfortunately it remains unavailable in streaming, we invite you instead to discover Afterlife.

Ricky Gervais, who excels in dark humor, plays here Tony, whose wife has just died suddenly of cancer. After contemplating suicide, he decides to punish the entire world instead. During the 3 seasons ofAfterlife, we first want to slap this odious and self-centered character, before letting our little heart melt when we see that he gradually becomes a better person, through contact with others. A kind of therapy way Shrinking before its time, options of embarrassment and cruelty on top of that.

Funny

Among the French comedies available on Netflix, it is difficult to ignore one of the most convincing of recent years: Funny. It follows a group of four beginner comedians, trying to find a place in the highly codified world of stand-up.

Signed Fanny Herrero (Ten percent), this nugget addresses many themes such as abortion, racism, mental illness or social classes, between two perfectly well-placed jokes. A breath of fresh air, unfairly canceled by Netflix after only a short season of 6 episodes.
