Funniest Actors and Actresess

The Top Ten Funniest Actors and Actresess

1 Jim Carrey James Eugene "Jim" Carrey is a Canadian American actor, comedian, impressionist, screenwriter, and producer. He is well known for comedic roles in films such as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask , Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, The Cable Guy, Liar Liar, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, more.

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.

Above and beyond may not be everyones cup of tea but its enough to carry the entire movie no matter what humor you prefer plus he goes through many quirky faces I can relate too and being both cocky and insane appeases my humor

Have you ever drank a cup of milk with a hot girl next to you while your friends are in the living room watching dumb and dumber and you hear Jim carreys hilarious lines and you do everything in your power to hold back the milk from spurting out of your mouth because of laughter, all in the hopes you won't embarrass yourself? Well some things are impossible.

Adam Sandler, is very talented, he has a different laid back approach to comedy which I enjoy very much. On the other hand no one can compete with Jim Carrey when it comes to his roles; a complete roller coaster ride. I enjoy both actors very much but, the winner if talking about energetic crazy and funny entertainment is Jim Carrey.

2 Adam Sandler Adam Richard Sandler is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and film producer. After becoming a Saturday Night Live cast member, Sandler went on to star in many Hollywood feature films that combined have grossed over $2 billion at the box office.

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.

I honestly don't think he is that funny. he might be in a couple funny movies but I don't think he is funny at all.

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.

He's that type of actor you always want to jam into a comedy type of movie.

3 Will Ferrell John William "Will" Ferrell is an American actor, comedian, producer, and writer. He first established himself in the mid-1990s as a cast member on the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live.

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.

Will Ferrell is a really good comedy actor because he has been in heaps of movies lots of them are really good funny like blades of glory and step brothers and he's acted with lots of other really good comedy actors like Chris Pratt in the Lego movie and Ben stiller in zoo lander.

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

Will Farrell has to be the most funniest person alive! He knows what to say and and how to say it at the right times. He has stared in many amazing movies like elf, Talladega Nights and anchorman but for me nothing compares to him in Step Brothers.

4 Bill Murray William James "Bill" Murray is an American actor, comedian, and writer. He first gained exposure on Saturday Night Live, for which he earned his first Emmy Award and later went on to star in comedy films, including Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Scrooged, What more.

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.

His high pitched somewhat hysterical voice when he says "this is RIDICULOUS! " in Get Smart is hilarious! :D
His body language... laugh out loud!

The office always makes me feel better and it wouldn't be the same without Steve Carell.
