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

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.

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

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.

6Zach Galifianakis
Hangover 1, Hangover 2, Due Date and The Campaign make's him unbeatable

7Steve Carell
his high pitched somewhat hysterical voice when he says "this is RIDICULOUS! " in Get Smart is hilarious! :D
His body language... lol!
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.
Steve Carell is the funniest actor in my opinion. His role in the office is the best. He has a really awkward sense of humor and I don't know what it is he is just extremely funny.
Best movies:
Dan in real life
Crazy, stupid love
And of course his role of Michael Scott in the office!

10Sacha Baron Cohen

40Liza 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.

41Stephen Colbert

42Neil Patrick Harris

43Aziz Ansari


44David Cross

45Martin Short

His Ed Grimley character made me laugh so hard the first time I saw him, I fell off the couch.

He is so funny in iron man and sherlock holmes why was he not on the list before go robert!
As the best iron man actor ever, he is very funny in tropic thunder and due date

50Rainn Wilson

51Donald Glover
Donald needs to be number one! He's my all time favourite and the bits he does in Community are extremely hilarious, with the faces he can make. Not to mention he's an outstanding live comedian.

52Chris 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.
My total favorite is Tommy Boy. It's to sad that the worlds greatest actor died.

53Jim Parsons
He makes me crack up every time I watch him on the big bag theory him and all his geeky friends on big bang PEOPLE WATCH HIM IN ACTION HE IS AWESOME!
Come on people.. I want to see him on the first position!
Funniest actor I have reverted seen. He fits his character (Sheldon Cooper) so well on the sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Ever single episode is hilarious not like other sitcoms were once and a while your will get something good. It also has joke after joke with Jim Parsons in the epicenter of it all. The Big Bang Theory airs on CBS on Thursdays at 8:00 (North Standard time). The show also has Johnney Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nuyyar, Melissa Rauch, Mayim Bialik Jim Parsons has also been in the movie The Big Year

54Sandra Bullock
She can do action and comedy as well.

She is just hilarious

55Kevin James

56Kevin Hart
This dude is hilarious I mean common people this dude was in four movies all in one month! Top five easily

57Adam Brody

58Tom Hanks

Cannot forget his comedy in Big, The Burbs. The Money Pit and last but not least, Dragnet!

59Amy Poehler

60Christopher Walken

I can't take any list of great comedians seriously without Christopher Walken. No one can get raped by aliens, read the 3 little pigs or even perform on Saturday Night Live like him! He is a legend!

61Lucille 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.

62Miley Cyrus

63Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

64John Candy

65Kevin Jonas

66Goldie Hawn

67Mike Epps

68Melissa Peterman

She is hilarious at being barbara jean on reba though she spells barbara wrong as barbra(southerners) she's crazy

69Andy Samberg
How is he not in this list?! He is a king and none of the other people are funny. Andy is awesome I loved him in hot rod and all of the Saturday night scetches

70Rebel Wilson
Have you seen seen Bachelorette? Or What to expect when your expecting? Or even Pitch perfect? Even in interviews she is so funny!
Fat Amy, Janice, Becky: Funniest characters of all time!

71Jon Heder

72Seth MacFarlane

73The Three Stooges

74Eric Idle

75David Spade

76Rob Schneider

77Gene Wilder

Funniest actor of all time, young frankinstin, worlds greatest lover, stir crazy, the old Willy wonka and the chocolate factory and more

78Rick Moranis

79Bill Hader

He is one of the best performers on Saturday Night Live. His impressions are uncanny and he knows how to react off of others to get a laugh. He's also been in some hilarious movies (Superbad, Hot Rod, Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Bill Hader is talented!

80Parker Posey

81Jerry Trainor

82Drew Barrymore

83Adam West

84Richard Pryor

85Wanda Sykes
