The Top Ten

Eric Cartman (South Park)
Don't lie to yourself because you think that South Park is Inappropriate. The Funniest show of all time has the funniest character.


Of Course I'm number one, Screw you guys who didn't vote for me, I'm going home!


I liked it whenever he became the hall monitor
and said "I have...authoritah?" and then shot a video
with kyle as "jew"

2Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)
Homer is way more funny than Eric cartman. Eric way less funny than homer that they can't be compared to eachother. Homer is so dumb because when he was a kid he tied cans to his parents car and tied himself to the car to by accident and his parents drove the car and homer cracked his head open about 30 times and a big piece of his brain must fell out of his ear probley and when his parents drove him to the hospital and homer lick a plug outlit and turned even more dumb P. S I saw all of the story how homer turned dumb on a episode.
He's way funnier than Eric Cartman. It seems the people who didn't voted for Homer Simpson never watched a single Simpsons' episode.
What is wrong with you people peter is way better than homer. For one he is a billion times funnier and so what if homer is the original, peter deserves this spot!

3Phoebe Buffay (Friends)
Phoebe Buffay is unique! For someone with a childhood as troublesome as hers, Phoebe has grown up to be remarkably positive of life, quirkily intuitive, and extremely hilarious.
I can't tell you how funny Pheobe really is, the truth is, she is an absolute idiot
she really has a complete different style from the others. she's just funny, with just the way she is.

4Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory)
22? Any Tom, dick or harry can pull off a barney or a joey or a charlie... but it requires real talent to play this role and Jim Parsons does complete justice to it...
This list is incomplete without Sheldon. He's the funniest character EVER!


I think he's funnier than Kramer! And I'm a big time Seinfeld fan. He made Milk Duds funnier than Junior Mints!

5Chandler Bing (Friends)
The guy who wrote his lines must be the most genius writer of all time. I lo0o0o0ve chandler bing, he's gotta be number 1!
So funny but not offensive unlike South Park. And also such a kind character, we all know that he's the one we all actually want as a friend.
I love this guy he is so smart so funny so kind, he always cared about his friends.

6Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother)
Pure Entertainment is what he is! Nobody in the the universe is as quick, clever, nasty, perverted as Barney Stinson. "the only time you wait for sex is if she's 17 years 11 months" -Barney Stinson
He truly is legen wait for it dary. The most popular character of How I Met Your Mother. Has the best collection of awesome quotes. Nails every bimbo with a new trick. Even knows some magic tricks.
there is no doubt he can't match animated characters like Cartman and Homer but he probably is the most funniest when it comes to real life characters


He is legen... wait for it...
ah! my nose is overflowing with awesomenes that I had to get some of it out... dary!

Kramer never fails to make you laugh. Just the best T.V. character ever. KRAMER WILL RULE, BROUHAHA!
Cracked me up every time that
he came flying thru the door.

10Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants)
Chandler Bing from friends is #6!? Screw this list
I know He's not AS funny as he used to be but he has some truly funny moments. Such as the ugly barnicle, "is Mayonaise an Instrument? ", the Wumbo rant, "It's a Griaffe! ", and numerous more. Just search youtube and you'll see.

If you think you can't find a great British comedy, stop here! Sure hardly anyone talks in the show, but that probably makes it even more funny!
Mr. Bean is legend! Should be number one!

You can't argue with the awesomeness that is, and always will be, Will Arnett. The dude is hilarious.
GOB at #19?! COME ON!
