When does a joke become a dad joke? When it becomes apparent. (Cue the groans.) Sure, dad jokes are traditionally corny and, well, not so funny. But in honor of Father's Day, Watch rounds up some of the best wisecracks from sitcom patriarchs, including Dave (Max Greenfield) and Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) from The Neighborhood, George Sr. (Lance Barber) from Young Sheldon, Art (Dean Norris) from United States of Al, Ben (Omar Miller) and Forrest (Rob Corddry) from The Unicorn, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) from Schitt's Creek, and Julius (Terry Crews) from Everybody Hates Chris.

Congratulations, Watchers: We survived 2020! And because we made it through a year that rivals Stephen King's The Stand, we could all use a good laugh. We're talking the gut-busting, rolling-on-the-floor, so-hilarious-it-hurts kind of ha-has.

Luckily, CBS All Access features some of the funniest episodes ever—just in time for Global Belly Laugh Day on Jan. 24!

The Unicorn —"Three Men Out"

When Wade (Walton Goggins) ditches the dating app to meet women the old-fashioned way (at a bar), Forrest (Rob Corddry) and Ben (Omar Miller) tag along. This standout episode from Season 1 of The Unicorn mines many, many laughs out of the middle-aged "wing men" trying to relive their heyday.

The cat's outta the bag in the third episode of B Positive, when Drew's (Thomas Middleditch) daughter and ex discover his dire diagnosis—and meet his kooky kidney donor (Annaleigh Ashford). "Foreign Bodies'" ends with this belly-laugh moment: Gina and Drew's ridiculously awkward TikTok dance!

Inside Amy Schumer —"Last F**kable Day"

The most inspired episode from Amy Schumer's Comedy Central sketch series is "Last F**kable Day," a send-up on how Hollywood treats actresses of a certain age. Schumer stumbles upon an idyllic picnic of iconic trio Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tina Fey, and Patricia Arquette, who ad-lib such hilarious lines as, "Are you that girl from the television who talks about her p— all the time?" Flattered, Schumer gushes, "Yes, yes, thank you!" "Well, come talk about your p— over here," beckons Louis-Dreyfus, who's celebrating her final effable day.

You don't have to wait long for a belly laugh: The episode opens with music video spoof, "Milk, Milk, Lemonade," with Schumer satirizing men's obsession with derrieres.

This Season 2 classic brings back borderline psycho Andy (Cheers fans will remember him from Season 1, when Sam set him up with Diane on a date). Diane believes she can reform the ex-con—and wannabe actor—by staging a performance of Othello at the bar. And yes, that setup is as funny as it sounds.

Here's the story: When Peter is ridiculed for having zero personality, he goes overboard to create a unique persona. The blended-family sitcom spawned memorable catchphrases—including "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia" and "Oh, my nose!"—and this Season 3 installment features "Pork chops and applesauce" in Peter's totally random Humphrey Bogart impersonation!

Fonzie (Henry Winkler) tasks Richie (Ron Howard) with looking after his girl while he's away at a demolition derby. Annoyed by The Fonz acting like he owns her, Denise coerces Richie to make out with her. But when Denise ends up with mono (a.k.a. "the kissing disease"), Richie debates whether it was worth choosing lips over loyalty.

Comedian Dave Chappelle is known for his searing stand-up but also his iconic Comedy Central variety show.

Arguably the most memorable I Love Lucy installment: the infamous chocolate episode! Lucy and Ethel take on factory jobs. All hell breaks loose when the conveyor belt speeds up, forcing the overwhelmed besties to stuff candy in their blouses and mouths.

Before Jordan Peele was taking home an Oscar and rebooting The Twilight Zone, the multi-hyphenate teamed with fellow funnyman Keegan-Michael Key for a Comedy Central sketch series that made you think long after the laughter died down.

After five seasons, the duo decided to drop the mic—but the series ender proved that they were going out on top. The send-off's central sketch was a full-on Busby Berkeley musical number on a sprawling soundstage, with Peele belting out the pleasures of living in "Negrotown."

In this Season 4 episode of Hot in Cleveland, Betty White reunites with her former Mama's Family co-star, Carol Burnett. The ear-tugging comedienne plays Victoria's (Wendie Malick) mama Penny, a house hoarder and children's program puppeteer. It's worth a view just to witness two TV legends take center stage!

A unicorn is that "elusive creature that all single women are looking for": a good-looking guy (with a good head of hair) who's a devoted father with a proven track record of fidelity and a steady well-paying job. In this case, The Unicorn is Wade Felton (Walton Goggins), a widowed father of two who's had sex with only one other woman in 20 years! "Factory fresh," his friend Delia (Michaela Watkins) calls him. And if a unicorn is a perfect man, The Unicorn is a perfect series. Let us count the ways.
