The Top Ten

Dane 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. "
Not funny at all, unless you consider walking around a stage and attempting to recreate a scene that wasn't funny in the first place funny
[Newest]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.

2Carlos Mencia
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.


3Sarah Silverman
I wanted to like her cause she™s nerd cute but she is nothing but lame racist one liners, poop jokes, and no substance. PLEASE! Eat a bullet or a #*~~^ which ever keeps your stupid mouth closed
Very racist and annoying, not even hot or funny
I really, really just do not like her. At all. I would start another holocaust just to kill her.

4Jeff Foxworthy

5Jeff Dunham
He sticks his hand in a dolls a$$ how is that stand up
This guy is extremely homophobic and his puppets are creepy!

6Kathy Griffin
Ever seen her stand up specials? Not one funny joke. They're all overrated.
Never told a joke in her life

7Rosie O'Donnell
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.

8Frank Caliendo
Impressionists should still have to have a joke or two in their arsenal.

9Jimmy Fallon
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?

10Paula Poundstone

The Contenders

11Joe 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.

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!

13Larry the Cable Guy

14Judy Tenuta
Lame song routines, an unfunny Space Ghost Coast to Coast appearance, bad impressions... she's the worst.
Shrill, annoying voice and boring schtick. She alone destroyed Match Game 98!




I honestly couldn't decide who was more annoying between her and polly shore :/


17Tony Law

18Michael McDonald

19Yakov Smirnoff

20Adam Sandler
This guy is living proof you don't need talent to be a big success in America.


21Ricky 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.
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.



23Margaret Cho

24Dave Chappelle

25Carrot Top

26Daniel Tosh

27Frankie Boyle

28Ron White
He is the worst comidian I have ever seen in my entire life, he is just an old man with a drinking problem. He also smokes during his shows that can't be good for the crowd. I've only heard him say one good joke and only makes me chuckle. But a comidian cannot live on one good joke.

29Gregg Turkington
I agree with this entire list except for including Gregg Turkington who is hilarious as his alternate personality, Neil Hamburger.

30Russell Brand

31Aziz Ansari
Worst comic of all time

32Robert Klein
He has never once said anything funny. He simply says things that are not funny in the manner in which funny things are said.

33Eddie Griffin
You can tell ' Em I said he Boring '

34Andy Dick

35Lewis Black
Screaming and ranting recycled George Bush jokes isn't comedy. Seriously, I might as well turn on CNN and listen to Democrats complain about Republicans for an hour. It's not witty or brash or fresh material, in fact he doesn't even really tell jokes. Mr. Black just yells about things he doesn't like and calls it stand-up. Smashing water melons is more entertaining.

36Bob Saget

37Kenan Thompson
After he left Nickelodeon he's lost his touch

38Vitaly Zdorovetskiy

39Tom Green

40Kevin Hart

41Louis CK

42Lisa Lampanelli
