The Top Ten

Jim Carrey
While Adam Sandler is just one of the better versions of the typical crude and juvenile comics, a character who acts like a jerk to screw with people and gets away with it safe and easy, Jim Carrey never stops finding innovative ways to go above and beyond. He's willing to go over the top and push limits to make the biggest impression he can, and he's not just assuming that more = better; he actually has the timing and the acting skills to fit everything he does into his characters.

Sometimes he's not for everyone, including people who like their comedy typical and easy, and occasionally the chances he takes are bad ones, but where other comedians are at the mercy of a bad script, Jim Carrey makes even his weakest movies more watchable. His energy can be enough to carry the whole show.
Jim Carrey rules! My favorite Jim carrey movies are
1. Bruce Almighty (Carrey, Carrell, Freeman, and Aniston)Great combo
2. Yes Man
3. Dumb and Dumber
Other favorites are S. Carrell, sandler, farrel, steve martin, anyone on the the office, and kevin james
Jim carrey almighty! Best movies are
Bruce almighty, dumb and dumber, Ace ventura and yes man
[Newest]Jim Carrey is funny in all his movies I've seen so far

2Adam Sandler
Adam sandler is the best actor I have ever seen in my life. I just love happy gilmore, billy madison, bedtime stories and grown ups.

He's that type of actor you always want to jam into a comedy type of movie.
Adam sandler can make your stomach twist into knots through laughter. He is just so cool and his comedy has a relaxed natural feel to it.
[Newest]I honestly don't think he is that funny. he might be in a couple funny movies but I don't think he is funny at all.

3Will Ferrell
He is a comedy master. Everything he says makes me laugh. His Bush impersonation is spot on and Anchorman, Old School and Talladega Nights are some of the funniest movies ever made in my opinion - with Anchorman at the top. I leave you with this: I wanna be on you.
I loved his acting in elf, he can be my buddy! I also enjoy
Him in kicking and screaming. I believe he is one of funniest ones out there!
One of the funniest in the industry! Stepbrothers was to die for! So funny. All of his movies are good. He is a very consistent actor
[Newest]The funniest guy ever

4Eddie Murphy
think about Norbit he should be No. 1


Whatch: coming to america, norbit, shrek "donkey", Dr Dolittle, The Nutty Professor, Imagine That and others please whatch those and you will know eddie murphy.
He is my favorite comedian every time he's on screen I laugh my ass off

5Bill Murray
I can't believe no one else has commented on Bill Murray yet. The GOAT gotta love the man just check the resume: Ghostbusters, Stripes, Caddyshack, Groundhog's Day, Scrooged... The list goes on and on. The biggest and funniest smart-ass in the history of man kind. Everything this man says makes you feel like you're in on an inside joke you have to love this man.


Check me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers there gonna lock me up and throw away the key.
Ghostbusters top ten best movies ever

6Zach Galifianakis
Hangover 1, Hangover 2, Due Date and The Campaign make's him unbeatable
He is so funny when he stars in hangover!
He is hero of my life.

7Steve Carell
He pulls off this funny yet lovable awkwardness time and time again, and even without this awkward persona, seems generally funny and positive to begin with. Hard to hate. He's done a great job in The Anchorman
His high pitched somewhat hysterical voice when he says "this is RIDICULOUS! " in Get Smart is hilarious! :D
His body language... laugh out loud!
I love his role in the office, he is one of my favorite actors, I mean like, who hates this guy, his movies are super halarius.

13Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd is completely underrated. He is a genius! So funny.
Paul Rudd is one of the funniest actors! Aside from
Being so charming he, can take any part and just make it funny without even really trying! I love him in my idiot brother and knocked up!
He was hilarious in Anchorman and 40 Year Old Virgin!

21Chris Farley
Words cannot describe his humor. He was literally... The best. He truly was "larger than life," and he used that to his advantage. God bless Chris Farley, rest in peace tommy.
Many other funny men have made me belly ache with laughter but, Chris had me do that with tears and gasping for breath. There will never be another Chris Farley.
My total favorite is Tommy Boy. It's to sad that the worlds greatest actor died.

22Jason Segel

41Liza Kudrow
Phoebe on Friends is one of my all time favourite characters from any show or film. Lisa Kudrow just has this special comedic timing and she makes her character quirky, but not stupid, but still loveable. Some of her work succeeding Friends is also pretty good.

42Stephen Colbert

43Neil Patrick Harris

44Martin Short
Martin Short at 45 is a sick joke. He's the funniest guy in the entire world and I adore the living heck out of him!

Tom Hanks is more of a drama anything else
Tom hanks is 57 becuas he is better seres rolls

58Amy Poehler
Parks and Recreation all the way!

59Lucille Ball
Lucille Ball was a comedic genius! Her show I Love Lucy was the first really popular comedy show ever, and I can see many other television personalities on this list. None of them can compare to Lucy. She is my absolute favourite actress, despite the fact I was born ten years after her death. Lucy was beautiful, entertaining, talented and frankly groundbreaking.
It shows how young the voters are. Lucille Ball should be at the top 3. NOT Jim Curry.

60Miley Cyrus

63Kevin Jonas
