The Highest Highs And Lowest Lows Of Sports Comedy
Sports are great vehicles for comedy, because the David vs. Goliath plotline is so easy for us to follow that we can just focus on the jokes. Like road trip comedies. We have to get from point A to point B in the funniest way possible. Let’s go! Sports comedies also allow for a whole team’s worth of funny characters, and as far as we’re concerned, the more the merrier! Well, sometimes there’s a solo sport like golf or bowling, but like the breakfast time shit-eater, they make for some of the best villains of all time!
Not just in the niche subgenre of sports comedies, some of these are up there with the best comedies of all time. Some just picked a sport, threw in some bad jokes, and completely struck out… Or air balled… Or missed the net completely. Here are some of the best and worst that sports comedies had to offer. You be the judge.
