61 Dana Carvey Dana Carvey Dana Thomas Carvey is an American actor and stand-up comedian known for his work as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and for playing the role of Garth Algar in the Wayne's World films.

Love him bunches

This guy needs to be higher on this list. He's horrible.

62 Gallagher

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.

Buffoon

63 Jimmy Carr Jimmy Carr James Anthony Patrick "Jimmy" Carr is an English stand-up comedian, television host and actor, known for his signature laugh, deadpan delivery, dark humour, and use of edgy one-liners.

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.

64 Ron White

Sucks...period#

65 Mitch Hedberg Mitch Hedberg Mitchell Lee "Mitch" Hedberg was an American stand-up comedian known for his surreal humor and unconventional comedic delivery.

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

Is he funny? Yes. Is he overrated? Yes. Good but not as great as people think.

He was not one bit funny.

66 Louis C.K. Louis C.K. Louis Székely, known professionally as Louis C.K., is an American comedian, actor, writer, producer, director, and editor.

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.

67 PewDiePie PewDiePie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian and video producer, best known for his Let's Play commentaries and vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, earning over 50 million subs. ...read more.

Uh, what? This guy sits in front of a camera, holding the attention of horny teenagers, while he screams idiocy. He is not remotely a comic. Don't even think he's ever played a role before, or had an act. His whole career is basically a kin to having to watch your annoying kid sibling play video games.

One of many complete wastes of space and oxygen that makes his living creating maddeningly stupid YouTube videos. He's not a comedian, and he's not even remotely funny in anything that he does.

Why is this turd on a list of anything relevant...? I would rather be stuck in an eternity of listening/watching the top worst 20 of this list instead of being subjected to this pseudo celebrity ass.

Stop giving him attention.he is just cringeworthy

68 Ellen DeGeneres Ellen DeGeneres

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 trademark

She is just boring I don't know who would find her funny other then bitter ass women

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

Lame and half conscious throughout the show. Cringe worthy programming

You know you're not funny or talented when you have to post nude photos of yourself to get attention

70 Russell Brand Russell Brand

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!

71 Denis Leary Denis Leary

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.

72 Conan O'Brien Conan O'Brien

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.

73 Frankie Boyle Frankie Boyle Francis Martin Patrick "Frankie" Boyle is a Scottish comedian and writer, well known for his pessimistic and often controversial sense of humour.

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.

74 Steven Wright Steven Wright Steven Alexander Wright is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and an Oscar-winning film producer.

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.

75 Steve Harvey Steve Harvey Broderick Stephen Harvey, known professionally as Steve Harvey, is an American comedian, television host, producer, radio personality, actor, and author.

He is overrated. Stand up is so old fashion and dry. The only thing funny about him is that porn mustache

Looks like a scary pumpkin, and sets the black race back 200 years

I like him on Family Feud.

Sorry..I just think he depends too much on what other people say..then makes funny faces.

Not funny, never going to be Jerry Seinfied!

77 Phil Hartman Phil Hartman Philip Edward "Phil" Hartman was a Canadian-American actor, voice actor, comedian, screenwriter, and graphic artist.

One of the best comedians ever on Saturday Night live! Very funny! What a tragedy he is no longer with us!

78 Marc Maron

Currently watching his show haha love him

79 Omid Djalili

Omid Djalili is an acquired taste. However, if you listen to what he has to say, he has some moments of hilarity. Especially when he makes fun of people who want him to perpetuate stereotypes

80 Gilbert Gottfried Gilbert Gottfried Gilbert Gottfried is an American stand-up comedian, actor and voice artist. His numerous roles in film and television include voicing the parrot Iago in Disney's Aladdin, Digit in the children's cartoon/educational math-based show Cyberchase and Kraang Subprime in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Absolutely not funny. Like the guy is just yelling stuff at the audience in that whiney raspy voice and just because he gets louder when emphasizing his point, it does not mean it's funny. Lewis Black is another one that does it too just not with that same whine in his voice.

I feel like Gilbert is very underrated because most people haven't actually heard his stand up and simply don't like the unique character he is so famous for. His stand-up is irreverent, crude and offensive (mostly one-liners), but it is hilarious.

Gilbert Gottfried is a genius! His raspy voice is what makes him him. Honestly, I'd rather listen to him read me bible stories than Ben Stein.

About as funny as a mental hospital.
