Funniest Actors and Actresess

The Top Ten

1 Jim Carrey 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, ...read 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.

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. - lucario411

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.

If seen almost ALL of his movies he's the bomb natur walk and ace vetruna made pee my pants into laughter he's a funny creep

2 Adam Sandler Adam Sandler

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.

Him in the anger management film is quite funny - Kevinsidis

3 Will Ferrell Will Ferrell

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

Way better than Sandler and although it is tough, Ferrell should edge out carrey

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. - porkstop99

7 Steve Carell Steve Carell

He pulls off this funny yet lovable awkwardness time and time again, and even without this awkward persona, seems generally funny and positive to begin with. Hard to hate. He's done a great job in The Anchorman

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.

THE OFFICE!

He is one of the best performers on Saturday Night Live. His impressions are uncanny and he knows how to react off of others to get a laugh. He's also been in some hilarious movies (Superbad, Hot Rod, Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Bill Hader is talented!

I have no doubt he is the funniest guy on earth. If you watch his conan interviews youll know also a very nice and smart guy. He was litterly discoverd by Megan Mullally. And Bill Murary said he's the guy who did the best job anyone ever did on snl.
