I love British comedy. There's a reason why Ricky Gervais is a "comedian" in the states... He's a talentless hack. Anyone who thinks he's genius is either an office fanboy or hasn't looked up the requirements for being a genius. This guy is as funny lead paint.
An apocalyptic failure at the art of comedy. This man should be subjected to Chinese water torture, as it is equivalent to watching anything he does. For the life of me, I can no longer fathom what Americans can possibly find humourous about this waddling cesspool of self-absorbed buffoonery.
Ruined Family Guy, Ruined The Simpsons, Ruins every think he involves himself in. Can't believe he got Ed Norton one of the best actors of all time to be in one of his crappy films. He should be a guy working 3 dead end jobs to afford an apartment and a bus ticket to a local comedy club to get boo'ed on stage every week. People only like him because they are sheep and enjoy whatever the critics that Ricky blows tells them to do.
Looks like a dick and his humor is based on being a dick.but he ain't funnyV 10 Comments
I am surprised this guy isn't at the top. I have seen some of his stand up acts where he has been heckled by audience members and generally there is mixed response throughout. Also his appearances on Leno and Letterman portray someone that is cynical and bitter. He is a known woman hater/misogynist like Chevy Chase. His work on Full House wasn't funny... the kids and the other uncles were funnier. And his best job was on America's Funniest Home Videos where he couldn't say much, but still his "humor" on there was contrived and boring. Reminds of a kid finding a joke book and then goes on to annoy and bore everyone around with a barrage of bad jokes.
Why do people think he's funny? He's just Dane Cook with more plastic surgery and more "my weiner in your mouth" stupid vulgarity, for the sake of vulgarity. If you think he's funny, then someone standing on stage for 20 minutes making fart noises with his mouth must be comedic gold to you.
I saw him on Improv one time... No one was laughing. Bob himself said, "I am so annoying I am pissing myself off." True statement, Bob. You are the worst ever.
Worst ever... Totally not funny at all. Just annoying.
Yes you need to say more
Winnie, fat and a gap in his front teeth...need I say more?
She isn't a comedian. She's an annoying wannabe something. She co-hosted the CNN 2014 Time Square New Year's show with Anderson Cooper. Poor Anderson couldn't say two words without Griffin interrupting him in the most annoying voice, since Fran Drescher.
How is this old witch still getting jobs? Is she screwing Bill Maher or something?
Honestly, would any one object if Mrs. Griffin had a severely late term abortion? I mean, why is Kathy Griffin still alive? Why do people keep giving her work?
Andy Dick can be funny, but this whole alternate 'drag' persona is just an absolute flop.V 4 Comments
He's as funny as a brain tumour, which you may have if you think he's funny
Worst of the worst. Should be working in an insurance call center trying to entertain retiree call-ins during their claim requests.
What bothers me about him is that he just tries too hard and comes off very unnatural, I hate those fake improvs with his guests and he's a show off too, always wanna sing, do impressions or whatever. It's like turning on the T.V. to look at him jerk off. Also that pattern of talk shows where the host wears a suit so when he makes jokes or does something foolish it's to make the audience laugh more easily due to the contrast with the "seriousness" of his outfit.
He was always cracking himself up on SNL, often in very unfunny skits. there is nothing less funny than a comedian who can't keep it together whilst telling unfunny jokes.V 3 Comments
His jokes are actually cleverly disguised ads for Sears and Craftsman Tools.
If you like the horrible Cook so much, perhaps you should be sucking it, because he blows
I liked him when I was little.
Perfect example of guys who can't cut it as true stand-up comedians. They jump on the first T.V. show offer from T.V. hack execs and don't let go.V 1 Comment
Bad is an understatement. Only surpassed by Dane cook and Louie Anderson as worst comedian of all time.
Is it just me, or does it seem like someone most likely farted in his bath water, a good majority of his life? <<-- But why?
Chappelle is not over rated at all, in fact he is under rated. He is never a top 10 in greatest comics and I believe he should be up there. Carlin is the most over rated comic to ever live
Chappelle's Show was absolutely hilarious and is one of the best comedy shows to air on television, and is probably in the top 3 for skit shows, no question about it. He was able to make fun of racial issues better than most, which was certainly aided by his skin color, since people are cowards who get uncomfortable when white people say the same things. With that said, his stand up was not very good, and he was an average-at-best comedian off the cuff, with very little improv talent. People let the awesomeness of his show pollute their opinions on his stand up, and he became ridiculously overrated.
Also several comedians whether you think they are funny or not have all admitted verbally that Dave Chappelle's stand up Comedy was the best! The one who said this from their own mouths are namely Katt Williams, Kevin Hart, and Chris Rock. All of these guys each admitted that Dave Chappelle's Stand up comedy is funnier than theirs you can find them being asked about Dave Chappelle's Stand up comedy on YouTube!
The best.no competition.V 8 Comments
Eddie's problem is he got lazy and crazy arrogant. Which is a damn shame, because look at his 80s career. He was gearing up to be one of the greatest comics of all-time.
Any movie of his after 2000 is dumb. Norbit is stupid, A thousand words is lame! Shrek just annoys me now, Eddie if you made another Nutty Professor or Beverly Hills Cop then maybe I'll respect you again.
Back in the day Eddie was a fantastic, born-to-it stand up comedian. That's gotta count for something.

The Cosby Show was decent, but not doesn't make it into my top twenty sitcoms of all time. As for Bill Cosby's standup, the routines I've seen were lame. Based on his popularity his cute little smirks clearly appeal to someone, but not me.
Next time you are excited about something you should be like 'I feel like a kid in a candy store.. or like Bill Cosby in a raping store'.
Family humor. Pleasing to watch his shows.
He did the hot cosby.V 4 Comments
His entire act is "My head is big! " And "I'm a Latino! ".
Making jokes based on a Mexican accent, accentuated by the same dumb, surprised look on your face doesn't get funnier the more you do it. I'd rather watch the Taco Bell Dog say "Yo quiero Taco Bell," for an hour than watch his stand up.
I still have a shred of liking for this man. But he was funny on the George Lopez show. Now he uses Mexican stereotypes and his hatred for Erik Estrada for his comedy. Not as funny as he used to be!
Perfect example of comedians losing their edge when they get rich. Enjoyed his early records, then the funny nose-dived as his career took off.V 6 Comments
Rebel Wilson uses the " Hey I'm fat look at me" tactic
She got it from Melissa McCarthy
Richard Pryor was a great stand up comedian, in the top 5 all time and even if you don't care for his movies, his stand up was top 5 all time. What are you 9 years old?
Just what was supposed to be funny about Richard Pryor? That he could curse and do racial stereotypes? I remember the first time I heard him on the Ed Sullivan Show--he was far from funny then (actually, it's the only time I wanted to turn the Sullivan show off), and his standup only got more racist, more obscene, and less humorous from that point on. He got his fame from African-Americans buying his records (just like they bought Wild Man Steve and Blowfly) because they were "dirty"...and once Caucasians realized they could listen to his stereotypically racial routines without losing their street cred with their "best friends who are black," they bought them too. From there on out, it was a downhill slide into fame and fortune...and flame. Sure, he could act "like himself" in movies, and actually managed to contribute a few humorous lines to the script of "Blazing Saddles," but overall the world could have done quite well without his unfunny brand of pseudohumor.
Whoever put Richard Prior on this list should be shot then fired.
Funny, hugely talented man in every way.V 6 Comments
Katt Williams looks like he drinks arfosheen. The only thing this re-re could pimp out is his twitter handle. He's not funny, and yelling and being a racist prick will only get you a few comedy central specials... oh wait. I blame Americans...
He is one if the most unfunny comics I have ever heard. And a bit if a xenophobe too with his statement against Mexicans
He is without a doubt one of the dumbest comedians to ever walk the face of the Earth! If he's funny, then I'm Bill Clinton!
Bland racist humor. White hate is popular thoughV 3 Comments
Always funny! Always.
John Belushi wannabe. Never liked him. His comedy looked forced and his films were dreadful.
He was both funny and overrated. He was in 2 of the best SNL skits of all time. But his film career was terrible.
Loved him.V 5 Comments
Actually a pretty funny guy, as long as he has a team of clever writers putting words in his mouth, AND sticks to politics and corporate folly. Where he falls flat on his ass is when he ventures off as an amateur theologian; which is why he tends to pick the least articulate people to debate. It is the straw-man fallacy by "casting" and editing.
Watched his live in dc special on hbo. Highest rated hbo stand-up special in five years. Are you serious... I didn't laugh once except for some crowd heckling of him. Which was actually funny. Should of watched on mute because at least he looks awkward and full. My trying to do stand-up. Stick to your scripted written for you show maher you suck. I won't watch you again unless I'm looking to get depresses.
Big whiney baby. He is unfunny and relies on humorless 50s Mr. drivel to make "jokes". He does political shows just to spout what he has decided everyone should do in this planet to cater to him. He flip flops on politics all the time - and not in some thoughtful I learned something new so I changed my mind kind of way. He just says whatever he thinks in the moment that will impress whatever idiots will go to his show. He has no integrity, no class, and no wit.
He si quite stupid and seems like a pretentious fundamentalistV 8 Comments
Shouldn't be remotely near this list. He is easily one of the best comics of all-time. His wit is nearly unparalleled.
Does he actually say anything funny?
He used his dead wife to further his career. Scumbag.
Top 5 best comedians. Cerebral humor.V 1 Comment
I love him. He is greatness!
Shouldn't even be considered a comic. Even SNL run was uninspired.
Love him bunches
This guy needs to be higher on this list. He's horrible.
Say what you will about Carlin, Pryor, Murphy, etc... Those men sold out arenas, commanded attention and are largely revered. They're also dead/not working. Gallagher (both of them) is stand up's equivalent to the circus that trucks into your local walmart parking lot every July.
He needs to be higher on list. Smashing fruit to distract from bad jokes is pitiful!
An out of touch old racist whose career can be easily summed up with an image of a sledge hammer and some fruit.
