Well, I've learned that there are many flavors of comedy & not all of them work for me. I tend to go for the morbid, dark variety, with stuff like "comedic violence" "black & grey morals," "cast of jerks," & "with friends like you, who needs enemies?"

Already seen:
Bakuretsu Hunter (Sorcerer Hunters).
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-Chan. (Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro).
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou. (Daily Lives of Highschool Boys).
DiGi Charat original shorts. (The Panyo-Panyo series was godawful).
Dirty Pair.
Excel Saga.
Full Metal Panic: Fumoffu.
Gokudo-Kun Manyuuki. (Gokudo: Swordsman Extraordinaire).
Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Goo. (Hare + Guu).
Kill la Kill.
Magical Play.
Majutsusi Orphan 2. (Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: Revenge)
Master of Mosquiton 99.
Nekojiru Gekijou. (Cat Soup the Series).
Photon: The Idiot Adventures.
Ranma 1/2.

Amagami Brilliant Park: By the same author that gave us Full Metal Panic. All types of comedy are represented: dry wit, comedic violence (lots of that), incongruity, etc.

Ben-To: Lots of comedic violence and questionable friendships. And a bizarre plot that oddly kinda works...

You could also try Ookami-San and Her Seven Companions. Most of the humor there involves the grandmotherly-voiced narrator brutally mocking the characters; those parts are hilarious, although the rest of the show is just okay.
