Today is International Joke Day, and we’d like to do nothing more than sit back and run a comedy movies marathon. This year has given us some great laughs so far, with some delightfully entertaining flicks like Zootopia and The Angry Birds Movie. Sequels of popular comedy movies were created, like Finding Dory, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Kung Fu Panda 3, and they were just as funny, if not more, than their prequels.
Now the second half of 2016 is here, and the upcoming comedy releases give us much to hope for. Here are the top 8 films in the comedy space you need to look out for this year:
