Funniest Actors and Actresess

The Top TenXW

1Jim 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

Right on the money! Even in high school his teachers would leave Jim stand up in front of the classroom to do skits he created...all his teachers instantly knew Jim was special...such a very talented diversity he can do its unbelievable...great choice...Carrey rocks!

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.

Very funny but no for kids usually for adults like you don't mess with the Zohan

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

Will Ferrell is a really good comedy actor because he has been in heaps of movies lots of them are really good funny like blades of glory and step brothers and he's acted with lots of other really good comedy actors like Chris Pratt in the Lego movie and Ben stiller in zoo lander.

4Bill 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. - porkstop99

Check me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers there gonna lock me up and throw away the key.

6Steve 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.

My celebrity crush! And I'm a guy...
