Funniest Talk Show Hosts


The Top Ten

1 Conan O'Brien Conan O'Brien

Hands down the funniest man on earth and his antics are just hilarious. I laugh throughout the entire show. I particularly like how he reaches a wide range of audience and is great with his guests too.

Very interactive with the audience. Natural comic. The best sense of humor. Always making the audience laugh

Love him or hate him, Conan O'Brien is an actual comedian. And, as a comedian, he works best when he is working for himself and for his own comedic ideals, rather than trying to create a universally liked, non-controversial, simply pleasant late night host.

He makes naturally jokes, no embarrassing jokes, the funniest, the most natural he makes.

2 Ellen DeGeneres Ellen DeGeneres

Best sense of humor. She makes me laugh on a bad day. She uses the show to make people's life so much better.

Aw, you gotta love Ellen. She makes me crack up every time I watch it. I can't wait for new episodes.

Ellen is the best. She can always cheer me up, whenever I had a bad day.

I like this attitude

4 Johnny Carson Johnny Carson John William "Johnny" Carson was an American television host, comedian, writer, producer, actor, and musician, best known for his 30 years as host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.

How can he be rated so low?... Must be the age of voters... He's the BEST EVER!

5 Jimmy Kimmel

He's super funny, very natural, fast-witted, great interviewer (has great conversations). He's so likable, reminds me of my best friends. His skits are hilarious and his monologues are always the best. He provides news in the form of comedy that's informative and entertaining.

Jimmy Kimmel is so funny, especially in his shark tank skit

He is the best. Very original. Hands down beats all others!

6 Jimmy Fallon Jimmy Fallon James Thomas "Jimmy" Fallon is an American comedian, television host, actor, singer, writer, and producer.

Fallon is clearly one of the most likeable personalities on television, as is affirmed by the Tonight Show's high ratings. Is he the funniest guy on T.V.? No. But you definitely feel like he could be your best friend, and he's probably the least divisive comedian out there (take that as you will... I prefer a comedian who is not afraid to be a little edgy or to speak their mind, but there is certainly value in having a television personality that can unite everyone with his pleasant and non-controversial humor).

He can cheer you up no matter what! When I'm in a bad mood, watching clips from his show (or generally anything he has done throughout the years) is the only thing that makes me feel good. You're very talented and unique Jimmy! Thank you for spreading smiles all over the world!

Jimmy is guy who is a little bit fat and with a always positive face, I always feel good when I see his show

He is HILARIOUS and always puts a smile on my face. his sketches are the best!

British humor the best humor

Even the American gusts think he's the best, ooh that rhyms
