The Funniest Single-Panel Comics by Frank Cotham

Frank Cotham’s work has been seen regularly around the world, for over three decades now, in the pages of The New Yorker, so he is the guy responsible for all those cartoons that make you chuckle awkwardly in The New Yorker because you don’t fully understand them but laugh anyway to seem sophisticated. He’s like the magician of the cartoon world, turning confusing social situations into hilariously cryptic drawings. Scroll down to see some of the funniest examples!

  1. Nice art, and fun captions, as well. I especially like the last one (“your last job…”).

  2. Kudos for being not just funny but a bit twisted as well!! Good humor, the firing squad and the “he’ll be okay……wants you to remarry”.

  3. There’s a lot of humor that come through these kind of sites that is mediocre at best. These are not them. From my brand of funny these are among the best I’ve seen anywhere. Thank you

  4. The one about still being able to produce revenue wasn’t funny, it’s all too important for some women.
