Top Ten Funniest Sitcom Characters of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Chandler Bing - Friends Chandler Bing - Friends Chandler Muriel Bing is a fictional character from the NBC sitcom Friends, portrayed by Matthew Perry.

I make jokes when I'm uncomfortable

Chandler is my all-time favorite character. I love his sarcastic humor, timing, and ability to laugh at himself.

He is one and only the best the chan chan man

Chandler is honestly the best man, how can he even be compared, his timing, sarcasm, classiness,... Oh god, I can go on and on. If you take a survey of people who have watched friends, I promise you, Chandler's character must have had a really huge effect on their sense of humour, just like me

2 Cosmo Kramer - Seinfeld

It is very difficult to choose between Chandler and Kramer. But Richards is a better actor

Not even the funniest person on the show. - truckturner

As far as I can remember Kramer was the greatest T.V. characters of all time along with Al Bundy.. Sheldon Cooper and chan chan man don't come anywhere near

He is the Lord of the manor

3 Sheldon Cooper - The Big Bang Theory Sheldon Cooper - The Big Bang Theory Sheldon Lee Cooper, Ph.D., Sc.D., is a fictional character in the CBS television series The Big Bang Theory, portrayed by actor Jim Parsons.

Thanks to Jim Parsons for portraying his character so amazing. Love you Sheldon!

Sheldon Copper is no doubt the #1 choice Jim plays him perfectly and ps you r sitting in my spot LOL see and we can't forget our favorite word Bazinga

4 Barney Stinson - How I Met Your Mother Barney Stinson - How I Met Your Mother Barnabus "Barney" Stinson is a fictional character portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris and created by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas for the CBS television series How I Met Your Mother.

Chandler should be first but barney should be 2nd

Only 4% votes to Barney Stinson this means that 96% people are not so awesome.

One of my favorite actors

The playbook. that is all

5 Michael Scott - The Office Michael Scott - The Office Michael Gary Scott is a fictional character on NBC's The Office, portrayed by Steve Carell and based on David Brent from the original British version of the program.

Everything about this show is hilarious. And at the center is this man. Without him it would be a flop.

Best T.V. character ever

11 Michael Kelso - That '70s Show
12 George Michael Bluth - Arrested Development

14 Hal - Malcolm In The Middle
15 Dr. Perry Cox - Scrubs

Him and Chandler Bing make me bust out laughing constantly.

16 Colonel Kurt von Strohm Colonel Kurt von Strohm

The gag is that he's a wuss compared to the general.

29 Al Bundy - Married with Children Al Bundy - Married with Children

Wooow bundy

30 Edmund Blackadder - Blackadder

Only one word to say, MacBeth

31 Frank Barone - Everybody Loves Raymond

Frank is the funniest, but the whole family is hilarious!
Frank (to Marie): At your age you shouldn't be looking for any new furniture unless it has a lid!
Good girl, ha! FRANK, NO!
Frank's tribute was so funny. Delicious, always delicious. My wife goes nuts for Frank Barone
this show is hilarious

32 Phil Dunphy - Modern Family
33 Marshall Eriksen - How I Met Your Mother


34 Tobias F√ľnke - Arrested Development
35 Sophia Petrillo - The Golden Girls
36 Karen Walker - Will & Grace Karen Walker - Will & Grace

By far one of the greatest T.V. characters of all time. Drunk, high, and overflowing with quippy one-liners that Megan Mullally lands like an expert comedic pilot. Nothing comes close to the way Karen Walker interacts with the scene around her, and I doubt we'll see a character done this well in a while.

37 Lucy Ricardo - I Love Lucy

Classic, right here. Absolutely hysterical.

38 Lieutenant Hubert Gruber
39 Cam Tucker - Modern Family

"Excuse me. Meryl Streep could play Batman and be the right choice." - Mekel

Cam stands out in this excellent cast of characters.

40 Mr. Bean - Mr. Bean Mr. Bean - Mr. Bean The title character, played by Rowan Atkinson, is a childish buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and contrivances to everyday tasks. He lives alone at the address of Flat 2, 12 Arbour Road, Highbury, and is almost always seen in his trademark tweed jacket and a skinny red tie. He also usually more.
