41 Zach Galifianakis Zach Galifianakis

He's too low to be honest. He's a natural you gotta give that to him. And for me, he is just perfect in the hang over. No one could have done his role so good I just died at his speech in The Hang Over pt. 2. So good

He's the best ever what is wrong with you people

He's got a talent to make people laugh & he's got a kind of body language that makes people to go for L M F A O. BUT he's a great comedian in second place cause first place is taken by one and only ken jeong (Hangover super gangster & great comedian of all time).

He is a member of the comedy group The Lonely Island, he portrays the childish but charming Detective Jake Peralta on the police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-nine, and was a cast member on Saturday Night Live, where he and his fellow group members have been credited more.

Andy Sandberg is one of a few comedy actors that this younger generation can relate too. His random but creative Lonely Island videos are the funniest I've ever seen. He should definitely be on the top 10!

Brooklyn 99 is lol

43 Richard Pryor Richard Pryor

Brilliant actor

A naturally funny guy and one of the nicest actors in Hollywood.

Words can't describe him

Why is he criminally underrated in this list?

Wow way to low should be top 10

52 John Cho
53 Chris Rock Chris Rock

He is better than every comedians

54 Sid Caesar

He set the bar. I think other comedic actors study him and wish they were him.

55 Stan Laurel Stan Laurel

The piano scene and so many others. Those two are a big part of why movie comedies are still made.

A genius at writing and acting straight man and gag man parts.

It is not fair for this legend he must be in top 10

He is the top most comedian ever, for his natural, innocent, cute acting. He had a fittest pair, Mr. Hardy, during his time.
