What's sort of this humor?

There is kind of humor which make you hate and laugh.Just like the ways of Sheldon or Miranda.But i don't know which English adjective can describe it . In China we call it 贱贱的幽默.

有一种幽默方式,让你觉得又好气又好笑,有些像米兰达和谢尔顿式的幽默。在英语中这属于哪种幽默方式呢?

    I don't believe there's one particular TYPE of humor utilized there. It's basically a combination of mordant humor, cringe humor, and insult humor. However, the archetype of the character itself is that of the unsympathic comedy protagonist.

    There are some shows that make an entire cast of these people, like "Seinfeld" or "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia".

    Mockery, and sarcasm. If those aren't what you're looking for, you can also simply describe it as 'cheap humor'.
