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
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.
Carr is a witty one liner sort of comedian, he does everything he can to make his shows as offensive as possible he has a couple of good jokes but overall, not that great!
Fearless and funny.
Noteworthy for having an effortlessly punchable face,for large scale tax evasion (allegedly) and a laugh like a walrus gargling with penguin entrails.
Very sad that he died. Super entertaining and funny. If you are saying he was not funny, you never saw him.
At first, I couldn't stand his delivery. But, then I started to "hear" the jokes. Not sure if he would've just plateaued though
He was not one bit funny.
Is he funny? Yes. Is he overrated? Yes. Good but not as great as people think.
A friend of mine had me watch his stand up. I cracked a smile at the some of the things he said, but to be honest, the guy is more of a social commentator than a comedian. He tries to come off as some stereotypical everyman but in actuality, the guy is so beyond unfunny I don't even know where to start.
He's alright, but I'm so tired of hearing people say he's one of the best of a time. He's alright. He isn't "edgy" like everybody says he is. He just isn't that good. He's a really average comedian.
His jokes aren't so much jokes as they are just a mate trying to embellish a mundane story at the pub. The fact people say he's hilarious baffles me.
Yes he is a funny guy but there is no way he is that funny, though when I look today�'s comedians I guess he is good for this time, but in general when you look to history of comedy he is just an another comedian he is not from monty python or something which people act like he is.V 10 Comments
I have never laughed at anything she's said. Full of herself, shows no emotion, and that's meant to be funny? The ridiculous screaming crowd on her talk show doesn't help either. Nor do the guests who thank her for giving them money etc. and act as if they weren't expecting it. Come on, as if it's her money being spent. Why on earth is she thought of as generous when I doubt that any of the gifts she gives and takes credit for on her show actually come from her?
She just acts like an idiot. There are plenty of idiots out there who will work for a lot less.
She used to be funny when her humor was so unexpected, but not for a long time.
Dikes love her! And her stupid dancing that she tries to make her signature trademarkV 9 Comments
She is just boring I don't know who would find her funny other then bitter ass women
Lame and half conscious throughout the show. Cringe worthy programming
She is just horrible slept her way to where she is but her whole style of comedy is boring or just lame! I hate to talk to the people that think she is funny
You know you're not funny or talented when you have to post nude photos of yourself to get attentionV 2 Comments
The only thing impressive he will ever do in his life is bang Katie Perry. Now he the rest of the world should dump him as well. Or at least hold him down and shave his nasty hair.
Just a joke. Garbage. Not remotely funny, even from a "British" mindset
Hate to rain on the parade but he ditched Katy (not the other way around).
I love him! He's hilarious and has fantastic command over the English language!V 5 Comments
Worst popular comedian I have ever seen. Beyond the act he molded from copying his more talented peers, hammering the audience with faux edgy and righteous temperment, his material was low grade simpleton fodder. "I'm an Ass"? Yes sir, we are finally in agreement.
Definitely not my type of comedy.
He did stand-up? Right.
Routine thief. 9-11 tap-in to fame. He got some money and fame and acts like he deserves it.V 1 Comment
He is overrated. Stand up is so old fashion and dry. The only thing funny about him is that porn mustache
He tries a little too hard to be funny and it kind of gets a little irritating.
Looks like a scary pumpkin, and sets the black race back 200 years
Sorry..I just think he depends too much on what other people say..then makes funny faces.V 3 Comments
I don't know why so many people think he's so funny. He's more obnoxious than anything else. And seems like kind of an ass. He is definitely given too much credit.
I don't get him. The funniest thing about him seems to be his hair. He never makes me laugh. How did he get a show?
I don't think of him as a comedian. He was a very funny comedic writer.
He's a unfunny ass.V 2 Comments
One of the funniest people on the planet! And barely mentioned in the present day. He shouldn't be here at all. - PositronWildhawk
Frankie Boyle is amazing he should not be on this list!
I agree. You won't find a wittier or funnier man on the planet except maybe Billy Connolly.
This guy is funny. He truly has his own style, its dark and depressing, but its uniquely his.
Brilliant, that is, when he raises his voice above a mutter.
Very, very funny man.
Stand-up about your cat shouldn't be considered comedy
Why in the world has the media been shoving this guy in our face? What's so special about him?
I want to worship this guy most days
So desperate, you could pay him 5 bucks to wash your car and call it a comedy.
As funny as any Comedian who ever lived. Hilarious on SNL. Will tackle anything or anyone.
Gaffigan is amazing. I like him for the same reasons I like Brian Regan. His clean, non-offensive material is what I appreciate about him, not that I am an easily offended person. I appreciate comedians that can make people laugh without swearing and offending people because it requires much more thought and talent.
If you like fat, bland, borderline retarded thought-process "jokes", here's your champion! "And go buy a Chrysler minivan, you dumb fat Americans"! Total garbage.
There are a lot of comedians who aren't funny, but this guy makes takes utter failure and cranks it up to eleven. Flatly, I've never seen a comedian who failed to entertain me more than Jim Gaffigan. If you want bad timing, flat punchlines, poor delivery and flat out brain-numbing stupidity, this is your guy.
I've personally never liked Jim Gaffigans stand up.V 1 Comment
Not funny, never going to be Jerry Seinfied!
One of the best comedians ever on Saturday Night live! Very funny! What a tragedy he is no longer with us!
