Worst Stand-Up Comedians Ever


The Top TenXW

1Dane Cook

why is this guy a comedian? if he could just learn to shut up he could be a very successful mime.

"I can't come up with anything inherently funny, so I'll just yell a lot. "

I have never even known anyone who likes this belligerent screaming faux entertainer. He shouldn't be on this list, as calling him a comedian is an insult to every other comedian.

I'm funnier than Dane Cook. That really doesn't say much, but still. He's straight up awful. Absolutely awful.

Everything he does just screams neediness! I can't stand him. He steals jokes and the worst part is they gave that idiot his own show. I cringe and feel the need to vomit every time I see his face.

The most annoying personality rounded off with the opinions of a stupid schmuck who thinks society is retarded when really it's just him and his stupid stereotypical nature.

An annoying, stereotipical, retarded Mexican who steals jokes from comedians way funnier than him. If he at least came up with his jokes, people would laugh at them. - ghmaster1354

3Sarah Silverman

I agree with the post: Not terrible, not great. There are way too many people rightly in this list that should be higher on this list that Sarah. She wouldn't be on my worst of list.

Cone on! This woman is talented and I think she's one of the most hilarious female stand-up comedians.

Not terrible, not great. Still acts like making fun of Christians and republicans is somehow edgy.

What?! She is amazing!

God, I love the fact oprah put her on her channel to save her failing T.V. Station, but she is just outright not funny.

I didn't even know she was a comedian until now.

I think Dan Whitney is a good guy. But, the cable guy shtick needs to go gently into that good night.

You know you're a bad comedian when your entire career is based of a list that's only funny to rednecks

This guy is extremely homophobic and his puppets are creepy!

He sticks his hand in a dolls a$$ how is that stand up

8Kathy Griffin

Ever seen her stand up specials? Not one funny joke. They're all overrated.

Agree with the above post. I've never heard her tell an actual joke.

I swear to god having a dog turd on stage for an hour is more entertaining than carrot top



The Newcomers

?Jack Whitehall

The bloke is just not funny. 4-5 years ago, when he first came about he had a bit about him. Now his jokes are just old and recycled over and over and over again. 'Bad Education' was funny for about two episodes, then it just got repetitive. I never really understood why his dad was brought in to his act? The jokes were just not funny in the slightest.. His ironic humour about his physique and mannerisms on panel shows like a league of their own are so dead now. All he does constantly is say 'yeah I'm really hard' or make jokes about his upbringing. Yawn. Not funny anymore Whitehall. - Pb206

The Contenders

11Andy Dick

Remember that one time where he exposed his genitals at a comedy club?

The fact that he isn't even in the top ten makes us all doomed. - RalphBob

12Pauly Shore

It says a lot when "A Goofy Movie" is by far and away your funniest movie. He wasn't even the main star, and his face wasn't on-screen!

13Jimmy Fallon

I have broken down his show into a few parts. 3%- actual talking, 10% playing games, 45%- doing impressions, 52%- laughing. And yes, I know that adds up to 110%. He laughs that much.

His voice sounds like a gorilla, even worse, my dad likes him of his stupid jokes!

No ability to tell jokes, no comic acting ability, no ability to interview anyone. I really don't care for Leno, but could they please just bring back Leno?

14Frank Caliendo

He won't be on any of my best of lists. But his John Madden impression is one of my guilty pleasures.

Impressionists should still have to have a joke or two in their arsenal.

15Joe Rogan

This douchebag just shouts and whines, and talks about things he hates, which can be a little funny at first, but then it becomes dull and boring. It's also annoying how he seems to be shouting all the time all through out his routine, as if his audience were deaf or something. His jokes are also not funny.

I was forced to listen to his pod cast today on a road trip... I wanted to jump from the moving vehicle within minutes... It was that bad. He may have a corky thing or two to say if you listen for like 2+ hours, but as a whole he sucks.

Yeah. He's jokes are slightly funny, but all that shouting is seriously annoying. His schtick is that of a college-aged type comedian, but is a balding mid to late 40's, viagra-using douche.

His best joke is where he claims to be a comedian.

His material is painful to the eyes and ears.

17Ricky Gervais

Annoying prick who needs to stop guest starring in shows and ruining them and making unfunny films and T.V. shows. Americans only like him because they think British comedy is sophisticated and that we all love him. But he's like marmite, 30% love him, 60% hate him and 10% doesn't know who he is.

I like a lot of his stand-up material. But in the Verizon commercials, the previous post accurately describes him as an annoying prick.

This guy is totally overrated. A dreadful writer, him and his hangeron friend whom he pulls strings to him seem like he has talent also. He should have stuck to a cheap late night talk show.

He is not funny. - fuadmondeo

18Paula Poundstone

I've now reviewed a few worst of lists where comedians were lambasted for their crassness. Paula wouldn't be on my 10 best list, but I wouldn't put her on a worst of list either. After numerous complaints about politically incorrect material from other comedians, is Paula's crime being too G rated?

Lame song routines, an unfunny Space Ghost Coast to Coast appearance, bad impressions... she's the worst.

I'll admit I always found her cheesy. But seriously, she's more forgettable than awful.

Shrill, annoying voice and boring schtick. She alone destroyed Match Game 98! - Darrell
