Top 10 Funniest TV Characters of All Time

The Top Ten
1 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.

Have you guys ever seen him People voting for Homer Simpson? This guy is the funniest a character can be. Vote For the Chan Chan Man!

Checkin' out the Chan Chan man!

*Chandler and Joey are chatting about Janice's birthday present*
Joey: You wanna get her something special? Get her flowers, get her candy, get her gum! Girls love gum!
Chandler: That's a good idea! 'Dear Janice, have a Hubba Bubba birthday! '

Gotta love Chandler

2 Eric Cartman (South Park) Eric Theodore Cartman, often referred to just by his surname, is a main character, as well as a major antagonist and occasional antihero in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Parker. He is one of four central characters in South Park, along ...read more.

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.

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

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

Those old enough know this is the funniest character of all time.

3 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.

He truly is legen wait for it dary. The most popular character of How I Met Your Mother. Has the best collection of awesome quotes. Nails every bimbo with a new trick. Even knows some magic tricks.
There is no doubt he can't match animated characters like Cartman and Homer but he probably is the most funniest when it comes to real life characters

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

Almost every time he opens his mouth he says something perverted and hilarious!

4 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.

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 my God. I worship him every Sunday at 8. It's the way it is and has always been.

Homer is my hero! He is so dumb. Therefore I like him so much.

I think he is kind of annoying character.

5 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!

I think he's funnier than Kramer! And I'm a big time Seinfeld fan. He made Milk Duds funnier than Junior Mints!

It's impossible not to LOVE this guy. He is a crazy dork who loves STAR TREK. That's why we love him so much.

6 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.

Alright, what made The Office so good was the type of humor that no other sitcom dared to touch. This type of humor is offensive to certain groups, but it ultimately the funniest thing in ANY sitcom. At the center of these hilarious jokes is Michael J. Scott. HIS HUMOR IS THE BEST. He makes the best jokes and although he seems like a jerk, I feel like he is the most genuine boss ever. I would give my left kidney to work under Michael, because he is so funny and he makes the workplace everything it actually needs to be. MICHAEL SCOT IS THE WORLDS BEST BOSS.

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.

I can get with Dwight above Michael (that's what she said), but these cringeworthy characters from TBBT,How I Met Your Mother and Friends above Michael, the world is doomed.

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

7 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

8 Dwight Schrute (The Office)

Funny and interesting character.

Weirdest, Funniest and the loveliest character of all time Rainn Wilson did a great job playing Dwight

9 Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants) Patrick Star is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants, and he is one of the 10 main characters in the show. He is voiced by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also voices numerous other characters on the show. Created and designed by marine biologist and cartoonist ...read more.

I know He's not AS funny as he used to be but he has some truly funny moments. Such as the ugly barnicle, "is Mayonaise an Instrument? ", the Wumbo rant, "It's a Griaffe! ", and numerous more. Just search youtube and you'll see.

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

Number 1 for sure. He cracks me up and he does not curse or say sexaul things like other charters in that top ten.

Patrick star should be number1 he's the funniest and best person out of all
The T.V. shows in the world

10 Squidward Tentacles (Spongebob Squarepants) Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

His blend of biting sarcasm and Daffy Duck-level mania is what makes him so funny.

The Contenders
11 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.

Cracked me up every time that
He came flying thru the door.

He's the best character on the show!

This dude's the best.

12 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 my favorite character. He needs better storylines and depth to redeem himself as a person.

Oh come on
Sheldon cooper?
Peter should be number one
His voice (seth MacFarlane) is awesome
His jokes are always funny

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

13 Roger (American Dad)

The only reason American Dad is funny is because of Roger.

Roger is just silly

14 Archie Bunker (All in the Family) Archibald "Archie" Bunker is a fictional character from the 1970s American television sitcom All in the Family and its spin-off Archie Bunker's Place, played by Carroll O'Connor.
15 George Costanza (Seinfeld)

The worst of the four, and has it the hardest.

I'm flipping out here jerry!

We're living in a society!

16 Rincewind (Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic)
17 Dr. Gregory House (House M.D.)

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

"You talk to God, you're religious; God talks to you, you're psychotic. "

Hey Wilson! I can't find my pornos

18 Phil Dunphy (Modern Family)
19 Lucy Ricardo (I Love Lucy)

The greatest, funniest character ever.

We all love Lucy!

20 Sterling Archer (Archer) Sterling Malory Archer is a fictional character on the American adult animated sitcom Archer, which aired on the basic cable network FX from 2009 to 2017 and is currently broadcast on sister network FXX.

He's everyone's favorite former pirate king.

21 Twoflower (Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic)

Sean Astin's tourist is lovable, goofy and hilarious.

22 Mabel Pines (Gravity Falls) Mabel Pines is one of the lead characters of the Disney XD animated series Gravity Falls. The character is voiced by Kristen Schaal, and designed by the series creator, Alex Hirsch. She is inspired by Hirsch's own twin sister, Ariel Hirsch.
