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"


[Newest]Those old enough know this is the funniest character of all time.

2Chandler Bing (Friends)
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.
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!
I love this guy he is so smart so funny so kind, he always cared about his friends.
[Newest]Not fair... He is the number 1 comedian of all time

3Barney 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 is simply awesome in every aspect. Love him. The word legendary totally suits him & the way he says it is.. Well.. AWESOME
He is "Awesome" and cannot be topped, even by Chandler Bing, or Will Smith. One example of why he is number 1, is when he planned the Exploding Meatball!
[Newest]Almost every time he opens his mouth he says something perverted and hilarious!

4Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)
He's way funnier than Eric Cartman. It seems the people who didn't voted for Homer Simpson never watched a single Simpsons' episode.
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.
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!

5Sheldon 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...
Sheldon Cooper, number 20? BAZINGA! (that is a joke and a half! ) He is super funny and I can't wait for him and Amy Farrah Fowler to "hook up" in the future. His reaction is bound to be HILARIOUS!
This list is incomplete without Sheldon. He's the funniest character EVER!


[Newest]It's impossible not to LOVE this guy. He is a crazy dork who loves STAR TREK. That's why we love him so much.

6Phoebe 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 is the funniest character of all time. Everyone wants to have a Phoebe in his life

7Dwight Schrute (The Office)

8Michael Scott (The Office)
You can't top him. That's what she said!


Quite possibly the funniest man alive


9Peter Griffin (Family Guy)
Oh come on guys... Peter is the third funniest just after Chandler and Homer just because they are classic. But even though I convince myself Chandler and Homer are funnier, deep down inside I know it is Griffin. He gives it to you straight... The show is even more funnier...
Peter Griffin Is So Random And Awkward that's Why He's So Funny
I've never loved a idiot sooo much

10Kramer (Seinfeld)
The show had to have that character, and he delivered. I laugh every time, no matter how many times I have seen it.
He's the best character on the show!


Giddy up!
Kramer never fails to make you laugh. Just the best T.V. character ever. KRAMER WILL RULE, BROUHAHA!

The Contenders

11Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants)
Chandler Bing from friends is #6!? Screw this list
Number 1 for sure. He cracks me up and he does not curse or say sexaul things like other charters in that top ten.
Patrick star should be number1 he's the funniest and best person out of all
The T.V. shows in the world


12Sterling Archer (Archer)

13Ron Swanson (Parks and Recreation)

14Bart Simpson (The Simpsons)
America's bad boy is way funnier than Homer.

House is seriously the best show ever, and Hugh Laurie does a brilliant job with house.


€"I teach you to lie, cheat, and steal, and as soon as my back's turned you wait in line? ”

24Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report)

25Patrick Not-Star (Spongebob Squarepants)

34Mr. Bean
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!


35Meg Griffin (Family Guy)

36George Gob Bluth II (Arrested Development)
You can't argue with the awesomeness that is, and always will be, Will Arnett. The dude is hilarious.

WHAT! WHY is he so underrated, come on guys he should be in top 10
Nathan rules, so pity that he left the show

44Joey Tribbiani (Friends)
Come on he can't be so underrated? He is a great guy and one of the most funniest character in friends and probably the best womanizer in the sitcom history

59Lindsay (Total Drama)
Such a comic relief. Lines are so funny!
She is so funny, clumsy and stupid.


60Lance Corporal Jones (Dad's Army)

All I can say is he is the cutest and best thing I've ever seen on T.V.

66Stan Smith (American Dad)

67Michael Kelso (That 70s Show)

68Dora (Dora the Explorer)
