Dark humour (comedy)

Title update/edit: Gag series with dark humour
---

Looking for a comedy series with dark humor.
I'm watching Sayonaro Zetsubou Sensei and I love it but I am wondering if there are more comedy series with dark humour like this.

Any suggestions?


(Check my animelist and mangalist)

Welcome to NHK- it is about a neet guy, who usually lives locked up in his apartment
Bakemonogatari- it is about demons that posses, it is also romance

Please check my list, I have finished Welcome to the NHK! and I'm watching Bakemonogatari already.
Also, they do have comedy elements but they're not a comedy in the first place like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.

NHK was the first series to come to mind. How about Baccano? I don't see that anywhere on your list.

I watched the first episode a while ago.
I will probably continue it sometime but it isn't really a comedy in the first place right? (thanks for reminding me of the show though, it's on my list now)

Think Katte ni Kaizou for example, or other manga series from Kumeta Kōji.
Although they aren't very "dark" like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, they are gag/comedy series.

Maybe I should use the term: gag series with dark humour?

I'd suggest Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita (in english Humanity Has Declined), it has witty and often dark humor as strong part of the show, about a girl in a time where humans have long past the peak of civilization, and now border on total collapse.

Maybe some episodes of Gintama? I doubt it's as dark as you're looking for, however, I mention it because multiple arcs tend to place comedy right alongside seriousness. This makes it somewhat 'dark' but overall gives it quite a bit of mood whiplash, which personally I associate with dark comedy.

Paranoia Agent had some dark humour, especially one specific episode. I think it was episode 8.

you should give this recent anime a try called Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!, it's funny and also depressing
