"Laugh away your sorrow" — Really, that's what we have been doing.

Maybe with everything going the way it is in the world right now, laughter is the only medicine to heal our aching hearts and keep our sanity.

Despite the unfortunate incidents this just-starting century has birthed, it has also managed to birth some extremely funny movies and comedians.

Forget the subgenre of comedy that you are looking for, you will be sure to laugh heartily when you see these films.

Don't see them to write a critique, see them to enjoy them.

Directed by Jade Osiberu, ‘Sugar Rush’ promises extremely funny moments well articulated by Bimbo Ademoye and Bisola Aiyeola. It is a funny adventure comedy married to a soulful family drama.

The record-breaking film didn't just break records based on frivolities. It also didn't make it to the top of many people's list of best 2020 movies merely because of its cast; it promises and delivers really funny and entertaining sequences that will keep you engaged.

The cast ensemble of ‘Gold Statue’ breathes nothing but humor. Even though the genre of the film is adventure, it delivers largely on humorous elements and that's the film's greatest win.

Before the takeover by ‘Omo Ghetto: The Saga’, The Wedding Party was sitting comfortably at the top of the list being the highest grossing Nollywood film of all time.

This is largely because of the entertainment the film provides. The comedic sequence will live rent-free in anyone's head.

Biodun Stephen has managed to carve a niche for herself with her extremely funny films.

She has managed to create a way to discuss topical issues while drawing out humor from the audience. Isn't that what comedy is loosely about? The ability to present serious issues in an unserious way?

Directed by Biodun Stephen, The movie focuses on one young woman's love for her family, and how this love reunites her family.

Femi Jacobs, Bisola Aiyeola, Timini Egbuson, Kunle Remi and Ronke Ogunsanya are the stars of this comedy and they will surely make you laugh.

Directed by Niyi Akinmolayan this movie might not be big on strong plot structure but it will succeed in drawing giggles here and there from you, and make you provide belly laughter.

The combination of Bovi and Nkem Owoh is a delight in the area of comical delivery.
