If you're looking for recommendations 9 times out of 10 you're gonna hear the title Cowboy Bebop and it hits many of the points you require: space adventure, action with some humour, and engaging storyline. It is the GOAT when it comes to gateway drug to anime and more but I'm going to go off the beaten path and recommend something a little different.

Space Dandy! (it's a Dandy guy in space). Leaning more on the humorous side with little dramatic moments. I bring this up alongside Cowboy Bebop as the director Shinichirō Watanabe did both. In fact there is a small nod to Bebop in this show as they use the same currency. The cast is a lot quirkier, the artstyle is bright and appealing, and if you don't mind fan service/ cheesecake, the main character's goal is to accumulate enough money to buy a membership to basically Hooters in Space.

If that doesn't sell it to you, give the below video a watch. It's the music video to the opening song - Viva Namida. Catchy song and highlights the fun colourful side to the anime
