Funniest Talk Show Hosts
The Top Ten
The dude can make you laugh about anything. He laughs at himself, other people, anything. You just know when you watch him you're going to have a good time. He's humble and knows his place as a talk-show host, he's for sure a legend.
He's gonna be 90, sitting on his bed with a nurse beside him on the stage and still make people laugh out of his edgy-yet heavily humoured- joke about how old he is and how that is affecting Ghana or something. This dude is just phenomenal, and keeps on evolving for pleasing the mass rather than sticking to the norm.
Conan is gifted beyond imagination. His lightning fast comebacks and digs are hilarious. Some comedians, Michael Richards, Don Knotts, and Jim Carey for example, are just naturally funny without any effort. Conan is in this rare group of super gifted funny people.
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.
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.
Her talk show program is so so funny. You can't stop laughing when you're watching her
Ellen is the best. She can always cheer me up, whenever I had a bad day.
He should be on the top. This man was funnier than all the others combined. The Best late night host ever.
How can he be rated so low?... Must be the age of voters... He's the BEST EVER!
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!
Really funny guy, always crack's me up.
The first Late Late show with Craig left me crying from laugh. I think I got a sixpack that day. After that, I am a fan. Only Carson and Conan are to come close.
Has a speedy wit, but is also very considerate and respectable of the person he's speaking to/about
His quick wit, his power over the stage/audience is insane. He is definitely underrated.
As its mentioned simply unique and never gets boring
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 Fallon laughs at his own jokes and that makes me laugh. He has great comedic timing and he seems so approachable. His humor is original and fun
Just by watching him laugh, makes me want to laugh. When he laughs, its not fake. He makes me laugh all the time.
How come David Letterman is on #9? This guy has a great sense of humour and could outwit anyone on the show
Why is David Letterman under Jimmy Fallon?
John is BRILLIANT! not only does he talk about important issues, but the humour I haven't laughed like that in ages
Funny british talk show host makes sense but makes it funny
He is sooo funny I don,t believe he is rated so low on your site
Graham Norton is the funniest period. Don't belive me go watch his shows on YouTube. His shows are amazingly fun to watch and he has such a quick wit!
Even the American guests think he's the best, ooh that rhymes
British humor the best humor
He should be rated number 1 there is no one better and a little correction to the "British humor" part he is 100% Irish
He has got a unique style and interacts very well with guests and audience. Very funny indeed
Been a fan of conan for a long time, still am. No others could be funnier other than Craig ferguson.. But after seeing the new late show with stephen colbert, I think he's the funniest n wittiest.
You peeps are all forgetting to watch T.V. if you didn't vote for Stephen because he's the best!
He is very intelligent and witty. One of the best talk show hosts of all time. He always makes you laugh and is much better than Jimmy Fallon.
Best of the Best better than fallon
I want to know WHO MADE THIS STUPID THINGS. James should be number 4. This list a joke. Obviously people don’t watch his show. Who the helll put Arsenio Hall? Guy was a dud. That’s why he was CANCELLED
I love him he makes me laugh so hard 😂
He is very funny especially with the faces he makes.
He is the guy who can do spot-on impressions of celebrities. He can do hard accents like Russian, Indian. He can make anybody laugh anytime and anywhere. He is the next king of comedy.
He's not only insightful, delightfully witty, intelligent and lest I forget, sweetly handsome. He's my top favorite.
Very comical, his satire is great. His closer look segments are awesome.
Really underrated. Jokes Seth can’t tell is great. He’s also really good on Weekend Update on SNL.
