Most Overrated Comedians


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Jon Stewart Jon Stewart

This guy had gone from a liberal stand up comedian to a liberal political activist who uses sarcastic humor and penis jokes to make his repetitive, textbook liberal points. He goes to other peoples news shows and just attacks them using sarcasm. This guy is unfunny, smug, and self satisfied. I don't understand how anyone can stand him.

Anything worse than Billy Crystal? Yes, yes there is. His name is Jon Stewart. At least I am able to sometimes laugh at Billy Crystal's face ( after I feel foolish for getting mad at it, of course).

Just another no talent liberal Obama sycophant entertainer. And I use the word entertainer loosely.

Wanky sarcasm that's it.

She's the definition of a shock comedian. She's not really funny, more over-the-top and racist than anything else, but she gets away with it because she claims to sleep with black men. For some reason, that makes it cool to say horrifically racist things, with usually no relevant/meaningful points attached. She's a very sub-par comedian who can't tell a joke without relying on her crutch of denigrating black men.

Shock value diva who often travels into the unfunny gutter along with her larger than life space waster. Best stuff she's done was on the Roasts, and this is probably because it was written for her by real comedians.

I guess having no class is funny? More pitiful than funny.

If you love jokes about an ugly white woman loving black cock, look no further. Beyond that, she likes gays, and...nothing much. Enough said.

24 Seth MacFarlane Seth MacFarlane Seth Woodbury MacFarlane is an American television producer, filmmaker, actor, and singer, working primarily in animation and comedy, as well as live-action and other genres.

What a pud. Anyone who thinks Seth MacFarlane is talented should pull their thumb out of their ass, look at it, smell it, and then taste it. Perhaps then, and only then, they will remember what human feces is. Hopefully, the next time they watch anything having to do with Seth MacFarlane, they will see the similarities.

Family Guy and American Dad are extremely boring. The voice acting and characters are really annoying, and his jokes are not very funny and at times can become repetitive.

FINALLY! Someone else who hates Family Guy. It seems like this website LOVES the show. - Fireboy

The man of a thousand voices that can do like three voices that sound the same with different inflections. Most overrated T.V. show, I'm sure his stand up is just as bad.

He made Family Guy, of course he's not funny! - Fireboy

25 Bill Hicks Bill Hicks William Melvin "Bill" Hicks was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, and musician.

Why the hell is he on here? Oh, he went over somebody's head and it pissed them off.

He's hailed as having been edgy and influential but the problem is he doesn't make me laugh. I hate self righteous and preachy comedians. Just get the laugh by whatever means necessary and spare me all the ranting. If I want to listen to an unfunny person going off on politics and religion, I have drunk relatives for that.

I believe you made a mistake. Bill is supposed to go on the list of most underrated comedians. He never achieved much commercial success or mainstream notoriety. Either that or you thought you were adding him to the list of "comedians I don't understand"...

He was hilarious and cutting edge, way ahead of his time

26 Robin Williams Robin Williams Robin McLaurin Williams was an American actor and comedian. Starting as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, he is credited with leading San Francisco's comedy renaissance. He died in 2014.

Funniest man ever; an on the spot creative master mind. I think the person writing this is a failed comic with a grudge, pathetic. Maybe next time you'll be more clever in your statements. Get laid and try to get it for free for once, maybe you wont feel so empty inside.

Who ever put Robin Williams on this list should be shot then fired.

Robin Williams, like his hero, Jonathan Winters, was a better dramatic actor than he was a stand-up comic. He was all punchline and recycled voices. He didn't seem to have any faith in his material and pretty much through everything at the audience but the kitchen sink. His wit was fast, but it wasn't terribly sharp when you reflected on it... That is if you could remember anything in his act a day later. He was much better when he was doing drama. That is where he shined.

Just plain, bland. boring. nothing revolutionary or outstanding about him

27 Ben Stiller Ben Stiller Benjamin Edward Meara "Ben" Stiller is an American actor, comedian, and filmmaker. He is well known for his roles in various comedies including There's Something About Mary, Zoolander, DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story, and Tropic Thunder.

More of a comic actor than a comedian. Did this guy ever do stand-up? That is what I consider a comedian. I like a lot of the movies he is in but his parents were a heck of a lot funnier. - mgenet

Finally. This guy is the worst. He ruins every movie he is in. Some of them would be great movies if only Ben Stiller wasn't in them. He absolutely sucks. He can't act and isn't funny. If his dad wasn't Jerry Stiller he would be an accountant or something. Please stop ruining movies Ben, you suck and we hat you.

Meet the Parents was a very funny movie, although I can't say it was very reliant on Stiller's comedic value. I've never seen him do standup, but I wouldn't undermine him by putting him on this list, because I don't really think he fits the category.

Total douchbag... can't stand any of his movies

28 Margaret Cho Margaret Cho Margaret Moran Cho is an American stand-up comedian, actress, fashion designer, author, and singer-songwriter.

Does racist impressions of her mother that make you cringe.

29 Zach Braff

Another douche-rocket. Actually assaulted a guy on camera because he couldn't take a joke. His independent movies are so pretentious.

He is wonderful. All day. Everyday.

30 Andy Richter

Conan tells his jokes for him

He sucks! Enough said.

A sweet man

31 Gabriel Iglesias Gabriel Iglesias Gabriel J. Iglecias, known professionally as Gabriel Iglesias and comically as Fluffy, is an American comedian, actor, writer, producer and voice actor.

His hero is Paul Rodriguez. That's like a guitarist who says his main influence was definitely Leppard. No business being on stage

Terrible fat jokes and stories that aren't funny. This sums up Gabriel Iglesias. They're making a movie about him. I don't know how people can stand 1-2 hours of his crap.

He seems like a really nice guy. And he's fat. And no one in this day and age wants to be mean to a sweet fat guy. He's really not funny, he's very generic and it's almost a parody of bland comedy. But no one has the heart to tell him because well, you know. Bonus sympathy points for being the token hispanic.

That smile needs a slap

32 Mike Myers Mike Myers Michael John "Mike" Myers is a Canadian actor, comedian, screenwriter, director, and film producer, who also holds British and American citizenship.

The first two "Austin Powers" were inspired. Other than that, he is pretty overrated.

High School humour from the suburbs...

I actually could not get through all of "Wayne's World"...watched the first bit and wanted to jump off of a bridge.

We was very funny in his day. His work on SNL, Wayne's World and the first Austin Power movie were great. Few people can stay that funny when they get older.

33 Rob Schneider Rob Schneider

This lameo deserves to be number 1! His comedy is horrible! He ruins every movie! Steve martin should have been the star of the animal instead of rob! Jim carrey should have been the delivery guy in big daddy instead! Rob's part in grown ups should have been cut out or better yet they shouldn't of gave him the part! I hate you rob schneider!

You're number 1, you're number 1! "You can DO it! "

I have to say: I did like the "making copies" character. The first two times I saw it. Then it got old. I see they've resurrected it on a new commercial. Wow, didn't see that regurgitation coming...

He's a hit and miss guy for me. I don't like him but I don't hate him either. Let's just say he is OK.

He is a comedian?

Wish I could turn on my T. V without one of his terrible shows being advertised

This guys should give up comedy and go into sports announcing.

Chris Hardwick is the man. @midnight is the best show on comedy central, tied with workaholics.

He's good but WHY DID YOU VOICE CRAIG THE SNAKE? - 445956

She is the reason SNL started using a laugh track on weekend update.

37 Billy Crystal Billy Crystal

This hack should be at the top of the list. Homey still tries to get by with his old as dirt curmudgeonly Jewish grandpa routine, or his wise old black man routine. Also, he thinks being a comedian involves dance routines and show-tunes. The guy never evolved as a comedian, since he became one. I could actually easily argue that his original concept of comedy was already fiercely outdated, to begin with. Which would explain why all the old and past their prime vaudeville comics thought he was dope.

Billy Crystal is not the greatest standup comedian, but he is a very likable "light comic actor." When he's not marinating in his Jewishness in his standup act, he plays a likable everyman very well. I don't think "City Slickers" would have worked as well without him. You could do a lot worse!

Billy Crystal is a comedian?!? He's had moments, but so have most non-comedians too.

Have never even smirked ironically at anything this man has said.

38 Amy Poehler Amy Poehler

She's actually good when she gives impressions of celebreties like Avril Lavigne, Madonna, Hillary Clinton...and so on. She has a likable face for comedy and besides her comedy work I was really surprised for her talent as an actress in serious roles.

She is as funny as a hobo in a mansion! Basically saying, she makes no sense.

She reminds me of this gen lucille ball execpt lucille had talent

39 Jeff Foxworthy Jeff Foxworthy Jeffrey Marshall "Jeff" Foxworthy is an American stand-up comedian, actor, television and radio personality, author, and voice artist.

Talent less hack, who came up with a catchphrase and beat it like a dead horse for all it was worth.

40 Jonah Hill Jonah Hill Jonah Hill Feldstein, professionally known as Jonah Hill, is an American actor, producer, and comedian.

Horrible, no-talent, self-absorbed ass.

Fat ugly untalented jerk who got into the bussiness because he became friends with dustin hoffmans kids and dustin hoffman gave him a part in one of his films. I have no idea how this untalented idiot managed to get two oscar nominations which he did not deserve. It's a disgrace to the academy awards and a disgrace to all those talented actors from the past who never received an oscar nomination.

He's also a fat whiny Jew.

This guy has never been funny.
