Top 10 Funniest Actors and Actresses
While Adam Sandler is just one of the better versions of the typical crude and juvenile comics, a character who acts like a jerk to screw with people and gets away with it safe and easy, Jim Carrey never stops finding innovative ways to go above and beyond. He's willing to go over the top and push limits to make the biggest impression he can, and he's not just assuming that more = better; he actually has the timing and the acting skills to fit everything he does into his characters.
Sometimes he's not for everyone, including people who like their comedy typical and easy, and occasionally the chances he takes are bad ones, but where other comedians are at the mercy of a bad script, Jim Carrey makes even his weakest movies more watchable. His energy can be enough to carry the whole show.
Adam Sandler, is very talented, he has a different laid back approach to comedy which I enjoy very much. On the other hand no one can compete with Jim Carrey when it comes to his roles; a complete roller coaster ride. I enjoy both actors very much but, the winner if talking about energetic crazy and funny entertainment is Jim Carrey.
His facial expressions really bring out the humor in movies he is apart of. Not to mention his actions are hilarious as well. I appreciate this actor for how much he makes me smile. I can imagine a line of people saying the same joke and I would be dying in laugher once I see Jim Carrey saying it. He is special.
Right on the money! Even in high school his teachers would leave Jim stand up in front of the classroom to do skits he created...all his teachers instantly knew Jim was special...such a very talented diversity he can do its unbelievable...great choice...Carrey rocks!
Truly enjoy his movie very funny actor. Big Daddy so funny and music I enjoy. On movie. Yes other enjoy one golf. Was greatest movie. One my favorte actor. Enjoy music on movies sure bring back 1980s songs. Styxs and many other. I give A plus thank you.
When Adam Sandler has the right role and the right movie, it is the funniest thing possible. Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison and Big Daddy are perfect examples of this.
Defiantly one of the funniest actors ever! Especially billy Madison that's one of my favorites. But now he is in some really annoying movies with stupid Disney as.
Adam Sandler is hilarious, but I do believe that he should be here in no. 2, because all his funniest movies were in the 90s, while Jim Carrey has been constistently funny his whole career.
Will Farrell has to be the most funniest person alive! He knows what to say and and how to say it at the right times. He has stared in many amazing movies like elf, Talladega Nights and anchorman but for me nothing compares to him in Step Brothers.
Will Farrell should be #1 on this list. Really, Adam Sandler got more votes than he did? Watch Will Ferrell in any interview, he is just as hilarious without a script, and outstanding at improvisational comedy.
Will Ferrell is a LEGEND. He has the funniest quotes. I wish he was in austin powers longer. Every scene he was in in that movie was hilarious. I was extremely disappointed when he died so early.
Jim CArry and Adam sandler are funny for the younger audience. Will Ferrell is the man for all age groups and genders. He is the best, all the movies he came on as a cameo, that wiould be the funniest scene in the movie.
William James Murray may not be in all the best movies, sometimes his jokes aren't always the best, and yes, he looks like he is in need of a good nap but damn what he does right goddamn it he does it right that my vote goes to him.
I can't believe no one else has commented on Bill Murray yet. The GOAT gotta love the man just check the resume: Ghostbusters, Stripes, Caddyshack, Groundhog's Day, Scrooged... The list goes on and on. The biggest and funniest smart-ass in the history of man kind. Everything this man says makes you feel like you're in on an inside joke you have to love this man.
Check me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers there gonna lock me up and throw away the key.
And funniest jim carrey is funny but bill Murray super funny
He was the best, deserves a better place...
How did Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler and Will Ferrel went to the Top 3? They aren't funny!
I'm with the person who accurately stated that Robin Williams should unequivocally be number one! Number 1!
One of the funniest actors to ever appear on screen. R.I.P Robin Williams, we love you!
The top of every list involving comedians and brilliance.
Whatch: coming to america, norbit, shrek "donkey", Dr Dolittle, The Nutty Professor, Imagine That and others please whatch those and you will know eddie murphy.
Eddie Murphy is comical and his laugh makes me want to laugh.
He is great at serious and funny and I love that he's great!
His laugh is contagious
Steve Carell is the funniest actor in my opinion. His role in the office is the best. He has a really awkward sense of humor and I don't know what it is he is just extremely funny.
Dan in real life
Crazy, stupid love
And of course his role of Michael Scott in the office!
He pulls off this funny yet lovable awkwardness time and time again, and even without this awkward persona, seems generally funny and positive to begin with. Hard to hate. He's done a great job in The Anchorman
I love his role in the office, he is one of my favorite actors, I mean like, who hates this guy, his movies are super halarius.
The office always makes me feel better and it wouldn't be the same without Steve Carell.
He's awesome ha ha I remember the scene from Anchorman where he's a Spanish anchorman!
Go ben your a beast he is hilarious.
Loved him in "Along came Polly".
Yes yes good good yes
This is the man who actually harassed people in his movies and shows and got away with it with the help of his ability to get inside a character. And this is a guy you can call "hilarious as hell". He always takes comedy to an extreme level in his performance.
Waiting for his next appearance on the screen.
What the hell this guy is incredible! My personal favourite comedian is not on that list, it's a beverage and it's carrot juice.
How can you not put Borat and The Dictator on top 10?
This guy's only on #11? Disappointed to be honest.
Why does everyone hate the pink panther?
He is truly one of the best his work in the pink panther series really awesome. I loved the role he played in DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS. His role in the movie and even the story of the movie are awesome.
Smart and dumb funny
Any movie with Zach Galifinakis is incredibly funny. I don't know how he does it, he's just so talented.
He is so funny when he stars in hangover!
He is hero of my life.
I love you. Zach.
Hangover 1, Hangover 2, Due Date and The Campaign make's him unbeatable
Jack black in my opinion is one of the funniest actors right below Jim Carey he always makes me laugh for an example you should whatch nacho librara it's outstanding or Kung fu panda he's also amazing outside of his movies!
Why is JB (flick off bieber) right in 28? He's starred in many funny movies like school of rock and Kung fu panda. Not to mention the D's box office debut!
Jack Black gets my vote for not only being a funny actor but for also being in the funniest BAND ever, Tenacious D!
One of the top, he gots some great movies like kong fu panda, shallow hal, and shcool are all great and that's just a few so make sure you vote for him too.
Good and very very good at acting very funny and active as a actor which is very funny and good at what he does.
Mr Bean. Oh Mr Bean. Such an icon in Britain and while not popular in the US people still know him.
Are you kidding me? #25?
This guy is brilliant! Superb! Number 1.
Come on this guy can call the roll and make it funny!
How is he not number 1?! Just watching him stand there makes me laugh! I'm not saying he deserves top 5 I'm saying number 1!
Best second comedian ever
But Keegan-Michael Key is definitely the funniest but how is Keegan not on the list?
I want to smoke pot with this dude!
Top 20 best actors
Paul Rudd is one of the funniest actors! Aside from
Being so charming he, can take any part and just make it funny without even really trying! I love him in my idiot brother and knocked up!
He's a legend, and legends never die, literally it doesn't seem like he'll ever die because he's aged like 5 years in the past 25 years.
Paul Rudd is completely underrated. He is a genius! So funny.
Besides his hotta looks, this guy can be the most funniest guy on the planet!
I love comedy and Tina Fey is an amazing comedian and she proved that women can make good comedy too.
PS. I also ADORE Zach Galifianakis and Jim Parsons!
Should be at least top 5
He is one of the funniest people alive, he looks like such fun to work with if you look at all of the behind the scenes and bloopers from 'How I Met Your Mother'!
His facial expressions are priceless...
In most of my favorite films, The Wolf of Wall Street confirmed him being my favorite actor, so funny!
21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street & Superbad are some of the most important movies!
He had me doubled over for most of 21 jump street.. The guy is a comedic genius
Jonah Hill is the best!
The way his acting is and his impressions especially on family guy
He is very talented in many fields of comedy, voicing and a lot more, his got it
Martin Short at 45 is a sick joke. He's the funniest guy in the entire world and I adore the living heck out of him!
His Ed Grimley character made me laugh so hard the first time I saw him, I fell off the couch.
He is the best funny and nice actor he is known by his movie rush hour and he is also a stand up comedian and he is one of the best stand up comedian! Chris tucker rush hour, friday, money talk some of his movies hope you will enjoy by watching!
His memorable one liners keep me laughing, and the characters he plays are monumentally hilarious! I mean Smokey... really!
I love this dude so much it's crazy!
He is no. 5 for me
He is one of the best performers on Saturday Night Live. His impressions are uncanny and he knows how to react off of others to get a laugh. He's also been in some hilarious movies (Superbad, Hot Rod, Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Bill Hader is talented!
I have no doubt he is the funniest guy on earth. If you watch his conan interviews youll know also a very nice and smart guy. He was litterly discoverd by Megan Mullally. And Bill Murary said he's the guy who did the best job anyone ever did on snl.
Funniest on this list...should be in top ten
I thank that he the best cause he funny just like jim carry I wish that he could make a movie with both of them in it!
He and Jim Carrey are my favourite actors up to date. My favourite movie of his is National Security!
