Funniest T.V Characters


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.

Friends is a great show with so many great characters. Chandler Bing is one of them. Well written, well created, and extremely well acted. But just one thing: Why do none of his friends ever laugh at his jokes? If they don't think he's funny, why are they friends with him? Because after all, he's known as "the funny one". That's why he should be top of this list.

So funny but not offensive unlike South Park. And also such a kind character, we all know that he's the one we all actually want as a friend.

The guy who wrote his lines must be the most genius writer of all time. I lo0o0o0ve chandler bing, he's gotta be number 1!

Simply, no question, no contest

2 Eric Cartman (South Park) Eric Cartman (South Park) Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

Sure South Park wouldn't be what it is without Cartman, but why is it that that many people prefer the funny characters?! It's annoying how people seem to hate the intelligent, moral characters and I think that needs to change. It's not cool to hate a character just cause they're not funny. This is my favorite show, but sometimes watching it while having to think about the popular opinions is a bit sad for me.

Dude, morals are good, but if a character is too moral that they're not funny, then it totally destroys their character. In shows like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, I hate to death the moral characters because it makes the tough characters seem bad, and the tough characters are the best. That's kind of how this show is with moral characters to funny characters - invinciblemario99

Don't lie to yourself because you think that South Park is Inappropriate. The Funniest show of all time has the funniest character. - zack182daley

Of Course I'm number one, Screw you guys who didn't vote for me, I'm going home! - TheNewGuy132

3 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.

Pure Entertainment is what he is! Nobody in the the universe is as quick, clever, nasty, perverted as Barney Stinson. "the only time you wait for sex is if she's 17 years 11 months" -Barney Stinson

He is simply awesome in every aspect. Love him. The word legendary totally suits him & the way he says it is.. Well.. AWESOME

He is "Awesome" and cannot be topped, even by Chandler Bing, or Will Smith. One example of why he is number 1, is when he planned the Exploding Meatball!

He's legan... Wait for it... Dary!

4 Homer Simpson (The Simpsons) Homer Simpson (The Simpsons) Homer Jay Simpson is the protagonist of the American animated television series The Simpsons as the patriarch of the eponymous family.

Homer is my God. I worship him every Sunday at 8. Its the way it is and has always been. - VADERtheIMPALER

He's way funnier than Eric Cartman. It seems the people who didn't voted for Homer Simpson never watched a single Simpsons' episode.

Homer is way more funny than Eric cartman. Eric way less funny than homer that they can't be compared to eachother. Homer is so dumb because when he was a kid he tied cans to his parents car and tied himself to the car to by accident and his parents drove the car and homer cracked his head open about 30 times and a big piece of his brain must fell out of his ear probley and when his parents drove him to the hospital and homer lick a plug outlit and turned even more dumb P. S I saw all of the story how homer turned dumb on a episode.

Homer is the best! He should be number 1!

5 Phoebe Buffay (Friends) Phoebe Buffay (Friends) Phoebe Buffay-Hannigan is a fictional character, portrayed by Lisa Kudrow, one of the six main characters from the American sitcom Friends.

Phoebe Buffay is unique! For someone with a childhood as troublesome as hers, Phoebe has grown up to be remarkably positive of life, quirkily intuitive, and extremely hilarious.

I can't tell you how funny Pheobe really is, the truth is, she is an absolute idiot

she is the funniest character of all time. Everyone wants to have a Phoebe in his life

She's awesome

6 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.

22? Any Tom, dick or harry can pull off a barney or a joey or a charlie... but it requires real talent to play this role and Jim Parsons does complete justice to it...

Sheldon Cooper, number 20? BAZINGA! (that is a joke and a half! ) He is super funny and I can't wait for him and Amy Farrah Fowler to "hook up" in the future. His reaction is bound to be HILARIOUS!

This list is incomplete without Sheldon. He's the funniest character EVER! - ankitagoswami

I love chandler's humorous intelligence.

7 Dwight Schrute (The Office)

Funny and interesting character.

Dwight is funny because whenever he's mad he would call everyone Idiots. That always makes me laugh. If you want a funny suck up to a boss in the show called The Office... Dwight's you person.

8 Kramer (Seinfeld)

The show had to have that character, and he delivered. I laugh every time, no matter how many times I have seen it.

The best character ever developed for T.V..

He's the best character on the show! - HeavyDonkeyKong

He is natural

9 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.

You can't top him. That's what she said! - crazyeyes56

If you think a character from Friends or How I Met Your Mother is funnier than Michael Scott, then you probably don't watch The Office.

Quite possibly the funniest man alive - nigelthewizard

Friends, Big bang theory, How I Met Your Mother above the Office?!
this is ridiculous.

10 Peter Griffin (Family Guy) Peter Griffin (Family Guy) Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

Oh come on guys... Peter is the third funniest just after Chandler and Homer just because they are classic. But even though I convince myself Chandler and Homer are funnier, deep down inside I know it is Griffin. He gives it to you straight... The show is even more funnier...

Peter Griffin Is So Random And Awkward that's Why He's So Funny

Peter Griffin is my favorite character. He needs better storylines and depth to redeem himself as a person. - ShadowHawk18

I'm a complete bastard but that totally excuses the horrible *bleep* I've done hehehe. *Cue annoying Peter singing*

I do not agree. In the more new sponge bob episodes ( you know the bad ones ) he's become a jerk. But from season 1- heck 7 he was one funny character we all knew and loved

Patrick should swap places with Eric Cartman, he's not even funny. Patrick however is so hilarious, and can always make me laugh, even when I'm upset. - Catacorn

Chandler Bing from friends is #6!? Screw this list

House is seriously the best show ever, and Hugh Laurie does a brilliant job with house. - Mir89

Come on he can't be so underrated? He is a great guy and one of the most funniest character in friends and probably the best womanizer in the sitcom history - prasannashete

He might be the... Slowest... Character of the 6, but that makes him hilarious. Always great to add comic relief.

He is the best. I can't believe he is at this spot, he must be in top 5.

He is the most funny person in sitcoms ever.
No one has made me laugh so hard than Joey. He speaks without knowing but that’s what make him hilarious.His childish behaviour makes him so adorable.His punch lines are amazing. Just watching the character saying anything,his stupidity,His childishness makes me realise that there can be nothing more humorous in the most simplest manner.
And by the way, How you doing’?.
