The Best Comedy Duos on TV Today

Dissecting the harmonic beauty of television's best pair castings

HBO

Yesterday was a big day for Community fans. After three months of cruel hiatus, Greendale reopened its doors to the best study group in the history of television. There were a lot of things we missed since Dan Harmon, et al, took the piss out of Glee in a typically wonderful Christmas special: Jeff's arrogance, Dean Pelton's randomness, Britta's, well, britta-ing everything she touches.

But perhaps what we've longed for most is the heartwarmingly dorky, ridiculously culturally literate friendship between Danny Pudi's Abed and Donald Glover's Troy. In fact, we're so inspired by the pair that we've rounded up the ten greatest comedy duos on TV right now.
