Most Overrated Comedians


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Marc Maron

Currently watching his show haha love him

82 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

Best stand-up I've ever been to, I actually preferred it over two other stand-up performances from comedians I usually prefer. - MaxStickies

83 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.

How could anyone consider this vile human being as a comedian? Never been funny!

Not a good comedian but very funny conversationalist. Don't know if I'd say he's overrated because he isn't really known for his comedy.

Never heard of him. That probably sums it up.

An--Incredible carpenter --- then gifted us with incredible comedy skills.
From the Man Show team to his follow up career with
morning commuter radio /club shows/T.V. handyman show.
Together with Jimmy Kimmel they set the standard for
adult/ non-political funny works..Most. without the trace of Sarah Silverman Slime or Sleep Walking David Letterman Libtard -isms

85 Stephen Lynch
86 Pauly Shore Pauly Shore

Never was funny, just acted stoned all the time.

Can't imagine that he ever quit working at the convenience store.

Only reason he got a job at any club was because his daddy and mommy owned the club...! Really! They owned the club.

Total friggen idiot... and so very unfunny.

87 David Letterman David Letterman David Michael Letterman is an American former television and radio host, comedian, writer, producer, and actor.

So into himself that he can't get the funny across! I hate when he jabs at people with his liberal commentary. This guy thinks he's far more respected than he is!

All he does is just tell stories! However, he actually once was funny.

88 Vince Vaughn Vince Vaughn

Please find a job for Vince at a Taco Bell. Maybe then I will not have to suffer his presence in film!

I won't honor his lame professional profile with a comment...

He and Owen Wilson give each other hand jobs. A tough guy in True Detective 2? Right. I had to stop watching.

89 Carrot Top Carrot Top Scott Thompson, known by the stage name Carrot Top, is an American stand-up comedian, actor, director, producer, writer, and best known for his bright red hair, prop comedy, and self-deprecating humor.

I don't know if I'd say Carrot Top is overrated. He's not funny, but most people know it.

I like Carrot Top. Some of his props flop...but others are very funny and clever.

90 Brian Regan Brian Regan Brian Joseph Regan is an American stand-up comedian who uses observational, sarcastic, and self-deprecating humor.

Get Brian Regan off of this list right now. He is hilarious. He (unlike George Carlin) can make people laugh without swearing or offending anyone, which is a rare feat in the world of stand-up comedy. One of my two favorite comedians of all time (Jim Gaffigan).

Brian Regan is hilarious. He doesn't rely on vulgarity or shock to be funny.

You have to remember that this is the most "overrated" list. Brian is funny and he's even got a few hilarious bits but he's not nearly as hilarious as a lot of underrated comedians I can think of. If you listen to his stuff beyond "boxen", you'll realize he's not really funny enough to be a headliner.

This guy is funny! - Pegasister12

91 Cedric the Entertainer

Terrible... famous for being fat and black

I did enjoy his stand-up Taking You Higher

Surprised to see that This guy is not even in here yet! He is one of the worst comics I have ever had the misfortune of hearing. He is a big d bag.

92 Emo Philips

This man is not over-rated, he is under rated. If his odd voice throws you off, his comedic craft more than makes up for it.

Emo lives his goofy character. Other comedians say he won't even drop it when they're just hanging out having beers. Very dedicated and very funny.

I just saw a picture of Emo, looks like a bad satirical version of John Lennon! Hope I never see any of his standup.

Nah, this dude is underrated. - 445956

97 Steve Martin Steve Martin

He used to be funny... That is if you remember how ridiculous lounge performers could be...

I just don't find him funny. He is good on banjo though.

He has that innocence in him that I like. He rarely ever uses vulgarity to get his humor across. Really pleasing to watch his movies!

Excuuse me, but steve martin is not funny in my opinion. although I somehow enjoyed ' the jerk'

98 Stephen Colbert Stephen Colbert Stephen Tyrone Colbert is an American comedian, writer, producer, actor, media critic, and television host.

His constant sarcasm just gets grating after a period of time watching him. And there are times when he doesn't come across parodying others so much as he comes across as just another ass with a T.V. show.

I must admit, he seems like an extremely nice man! Is he entertaining? Yes. Funny, I'm not quite sure.

He's not a comic. He's a gimmick actor, hence the reason that late show ratings are trash.

The comments for Colbert are pretty telling. People don't like him because he is way over their heads.
The comedians who make it big for the masses are unintelligent fools like Dane Cook, Larry the Cable Douche and Gabriel Iglesias.

99 Chris Rock Chris Rock

One of the best comedians in stand up history.

Most annoying man ever, and looks like a donkey. Have never even chuckled at anything he has said.

Relies too much on delivery and not on unique content.

The most completely awful man to ever step onto a stage. Not funny, not likeable, loudmouth and for some reason thinks he is a great comedian. I think the crowd has plants in it whispering to people beside them, "He's right about white people you know", or "He's right about black people you

100 George Carlin George Carlin

Who the hell wrote this? Carlin is indisputably one of the greatest comedians of all time, arguably the best (along with Pryor and Bruce). The person who put him on here is clearly a narrow-minded, cynic who does not understand the art of standup comedy on a larger scale. My guess is that this is the work of someone young, probably under the age of 20 who can only appreciate new comedians that cater to the modern sense of humor. This person needs a much broader view of the history of comedy: Carlin was one of the most influential and talented comedians of all time, he is a legend and a genius. Take him off this list.

Carlin isn't supposed to be entirely funny, the man was a philosopher and I'd go as far as calling him a genius. He spoke about important matters and spoke the truth

His so-called "jokes" basically consisted of bashing religion and right-wing politics. Of course, because he did these sorts of bits, he was called a genius, that's just how the world unfortunately works. I mean, I've listened to pieces of his stand up, and this old curmudgeon is so beyond unfunny that I don't even think there's a word for it.

He isn't funny, and he is very weird and stupid
