People love moaning about dramas and comedies. So, in the series which are categorised as a DRAMA, what performance do you find most comedic, and worthy of recognition here?August 13, 2016 at 9:53 am #1201907038
Alan Cumming in The Good Wife comes to mind.August 13, 2016 at 10:22 am #1201907051

John Slattery in “Mad Men”. Bob Odenkirk in “Breaking Bad” & “Better Call Saul”.August 13, 2016 at 12:25 pm #1201907099
I second John Slattery and Bob Odenkirk. I also loved the humor in Justified… almost all principal characters were given funny lines, but mostly it was Sniper Tim and Art who had the best one-liners.
Six Feet Under and The Sopranos (especially the malaprops) each had a good dose of humor, too, but distributed among most of the cast… no one in particular stood out.August 13, 2016 at 1:14 pm #1201907116
Taraji P. Henson in EmpireAugust 13, 2016 at 1:18 pm #1201907118
Most of the IZombie actors have great comedic moments, but David Anders is as hilarious as he is menacing as Blaine. 🙂August 13, 2016 at 1:26 pm #1201907124
Kyle MachLachlan, Twin PeaksAugust 13, 2016 at 1:42 pm #1201907132
I wish I really liked some performances in Transparent just to post here, since that show has transitioned completely from dramedy to drama.
I’m digging Turturro in The Night Of. That’s a performance with a smart comedic undertone.August 13, 2016 at 9:07 pm #1201907165
