You must have been away for some time if you still think Hulu is just a place to watch sitcoms after they air on TV. On the contrary, the streaming service has long been a full-service competitor to Netflix and, in my opinion, has a deeper and stronger lineup of films. Moreover, with not just comedy but all genres, Hulu presents a more diverse set of movies than Netflix, offering something for everyone.
Before I jump into the top 10 comedy movies on Hulu, let me tell you that Hulu is available in the USA and some places in Japan. However, there is a trick called the Hulu Location Trick; by using this trick, you can bypass Hulu geo-restrictions from anywhere in the world. And you can access Hulu wherever you want to enjoy your favourite comedy movie.
Here is the list of top 10 comedy movies to watch on Hulu in 2022.
