If you're one of those who download fansubs *cough* I recommend Azumanga Daioh and Galaxy Angel Seasons 1 and 2.

in terms of animation comedy your better off with american stuff such as the simpsons, futurama or king of the hill or something.

american animation seems to always be funnier and more clever than anime in my opinion.

king of the hill was made to be funny?! i never knew...
Ahum, anyway, I was gonna suggest stuff like Azumanga Daiou and Excel Saga, but since those have already been suggested, here's some other anime that's also very funny:
Fairy Princess Raine (AnimeWorks calls it Elf Princess Raine though), Saber Marrionette J, Battle Atlethes, Tenchi Muyou! GXP

yeah, its an animated sitcom isn't it? I mean there are serious situations but its really just all farce. It's hilarious. Gotta love those Texans. Wow it would suck if they weren't trying to be funny and we all laugh at it...

But I agree. I like American animated comedy more. Japanese anime comedies mostly appear to be for a younger audience. Plus humour can definately be a cultural thing. (Although I still laugh at Excel Saga, Nadesico, Ranma 1/2, Lum Urusei Yatusra, and the Violinist of Hamlen manga. The last 3 in particular.)

Yeah, American comedy is hilarious for a big reason, we're american(slash candian) and we get almost all the jokes. And each countries humour has its own style..I mean. Look at seinfeld!

That doesn't mean there aren't some uproaringly funny anime out there. Dragon Half is a MUST look into. Lord Damuramu is just so great.Not to mention one of the greatest, Ranma 1/2. Batle Athletes really isn't exactly a comedy. It IS funny at times, but it's also latent with athletic drama(and for 15 bucks for 4 eps a dvd, it's a good series to collect)

Those hwo hunt elves was funny..but i never made it past the first few VHS's. Hmm..what else....Trigun is also very funny, and includes some nice stylish actions.

eddy's right, american cartoons are way funnier than anime- i highly recomend Mission Hill, its one of the funniest shows on Adult Swim Comedy.

as for anime- Jubei Chan, funniest one ive seen. Excel Saga on the other hand is way over-rated, in fact, its so over-rated that it just doesnt live up to fans expectations any more (you can thank ADV for the over exposure )

I just saw Excel Saga I thought it was funny in a stupid way...I wouldn't buy it or see it more than once..but it is good I love episode four the best...

But I suggest you see The Oblongs on adult swim...it's funny in a scary way..

I can't believe nobody mentioned GTO or Ping Pong Club!

Those are 2 of the funniest series ever conceived.

*Great Teacher Onizka is my favorite comedic anime at the moment! Check it out!

*Ping Pong Club is a twisted little show that will leave you laughing your ass off and/or cringing from the crude visuals.....

"Momma always said Ping Pong Club is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

Enjoy!
