    Brass Eye, it's a British show. They trolled an MP into bringing up the issue of "Cake" in Parliament. It's a fake drug that the show made up. He later became a drug minister.

    The Death of Stalin. Great performances by an ensemble of veteran actors given a very dark and hilarious script. Steve Buscemi's Khrushchev and Jason Isaacs as Marshal Zhukov are especially enjoyable.

    The Beverly Hillbillies "A Plot For Granny": guest starring Jesse White and Richard Deacon makes fun of the funeral industry.

    Lane Pryce in Mad Men. He screwed up his finances, he screwed up his domestic life, he screwed up his work relationships, his father saw him as a screw up, and he screwed up his embezzlement efforts to clean all that up. He tried to commit suicide by poisoning himself with his car, but he screwed that up simply trying to start the car. He was such a bad screw up couldn't even kill himself right.

    It was only with the direct route (hanging) that he succeeded, but if he were more direct like that regularly, he probably wouldn't have messed up so badly in life.

    What We Do In The Shadows.

    Honestly, the things they do in the show while played for laughs are horrific.

    As an example that one girl (Jenna) gets bit and is transforming in her dorm room while her roommate just thinks she’s ill, she’s in her bed, pretty obviously dead, and a fly lands on her sightless eyeball and starts crawling. That was just straight up creepy.

    "Breaking Bad" had a lot of dark humor that I quite enjoyed.

    "The Boys" hits it out of the park all the time. I mean, that scene with the dolphin... (and that's just one part of a dark running joke with the Deep and any aquatic life he befriends)

    Dexter had many good examples of dark humor, especially when he had his victims on the table or was stalking them
