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 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.

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."

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.

Good things come to those who wait. It's been a longer-than-usual layoff between seasons, but starting Nov. 5, CBS rolls out its pandemic-delayed premieres. Some of your returning favorites tackle timely issues, like COVID-19 (NCIS: New Orleans, Bull) and racial injustice (The Neighborhood, All Rise, S.W.A.T.).
