Life is busy. Every morning, you have to wake up and follow the same routine — getting ready for work, commuting, working, coming back home all tired and ready to hit the sack. Not to forget all the chores in between. How in the name of heaven can anyone ever get the time to watch a good film or catch up with the TV show that has been on hold for such a long time that you might as well forget about it? How do you liven up your mood when life is so mundane? This is where podcasts come in. You don’t have to sit down to watch them, you don’t have to dedicate a particular time slot to them. You can drive, cook, eat, work, whatever, while the podcast plays in the background. And comedy podcasts make it all the better.
The variety that you have at your disposal is staggering. Podcasts can be about movies, politics, books, trivia, or simply a person cracking some good jokes. If you want such podcasts to be the first thing you listen to in the morning and the last thing before you go to sleep, then you can check out this special compilation we’ve come up with. Here’s the list of top comedy podcasts. You can listen to several of these best comedy podcasts on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify or even YouTube for free.
