Top Ten Funniest Characters from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine needs to be seen if you feel that your life lacks humour. It is one of the funniest things that I have seen, and I keep watching it in the hope that these highly amusing characters keep me laughing.
The Top Ten
1 Captain Ray Holt Captain Raymond Holt, portrayed by Andre Braugher, is a character in the TV show "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." He is the stern and methodical leader of the 99th precinct of the NYPD. Captain Holt is celebrated for breaking barriers as an openly gay African-American police captain. His no-nonsense demeanor and... read more

Yes, he is such a good sport and an amazing detective/ genius. I love the fact he was great when Jake won the first Halloween bet and then totally got him back. He is proud and kind and never gives up on those he loves. He brings out the best in Kevin and all of the detectives. He may be a little strange when it comes to having fun, having been left out and subjected to racism and homophobia, but this really has strengthened his character in many other ways, despite his lack of social skills sometimes. I am really fond of this character and got really worried when he got taken away as captain but he is back and stronger than ever. I definitely agree with this order of best characters. He is my number one!

2 Detective Jake Peralta

I usually don't really like main characters on shows (supporting roles are usually funnier) but Jake is an exception! He is obviously a goofball, he is not afraid to make fun of himself but at the same time he is caring and compassionate towards the people he loves. There are many sides to him.
I basically love every single character on this show, so it's super hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to, it would probably be Jake Peralta.

I love all the Brooklyn Nine-Nine characters, but Jake is the funniest for me. His main source of humor is his childlike behavior and immaturity, which provides plenty of hilarious moments (Capt. Holt: "This file says, 'Undies, Dirty'." Jake: "So I won't confuse them with 'Undies, Clean'.") The sharp writing and Andy Samberg's hilarious delivery make Jake one of the funniest sitcom characters I've ever seen.

3 Administrator Gina Linetti

Gina's desperate to make herself the centre of attention, and I think the irony in that is that the writers give her a small role when compared with the other main characters. Because she is really funny in a confused and bizarre way.

She is without a doubt the funniest character. I hated her at first but it didn't take long for that hatred to turn into love.

Gina is hilarious! Need I say more?

4 Detective Rosa Diaz

I love the spooky vampire in black leather that is Rosa. There's humour in her scary look, her mystery and her deadpan approach to everything.

The best character. So different to the rest of the main 7 providing variety in the show. Such a badass.

I want to be her, and still be functional in regular society.

5 Detective Charles Boyle Detective Charles Boyle, portrayed by Joe Lo Truglio, is a character in the TV show "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." He is a kind-hearted but awkward member of the 99th precinct. Charles' genuine and sometimes eccentric personality makes him a lovable figure among his colleagues. His passion for food and his unique... read more

He's so funny! his humor is BEST. he's not trying to be funny unlike some characters who are obviously trying to make you laugh, his personality is just really hilarious. how he says the weirdest things but it just comes out naturally, his facial expressions, his being inferior to everyone, his family and the cousin convention, and even when he's being a great cop it's just adorable to see little charles boyle take down bad guys

The clumsy yet determined, shaky yet focused, idiosyncratic yet distinctive detective who just gives you a sense of pleasure in this show. Everyone likes him, and for good reason. Well, except Rosa.

6 Detective Sergeant Terry Jeffords

He is absolutely gorgeous in every way! He was great in Everybody Hates Chris, and he's great in this! He never ages! He brings the show the humor it needs, and he is a really good father to his children!

Terry carrying the Vulture over one shoulder and literally dumping him in the trash - funniest, most badass Terry moment OF ALL TIME!

Hilarious guy. I want to see more action scenes with him, because that is where the slapstick humour of the show needs to develop.

7 Detective Amy Santiago

She so organised and always has everything under control she is someone you can really look up to. She definitely deserves more recognition.

Needs more recognition. She is organised, but fun at times, especially with Jake, throughout the show, whether he is her colleague, friend, boyfriend, fiancé, and husband. She can suck up to Holt at times, but she is amazing and she has proven that she can stand up for herself and the ones she loves, most notably at her honeymoon when Holt calls Jake selfish and she gives her famous 'I Don't Give A Hoot' speech. I love her attitude about work, and her transition from work to rest / play. Overall an amazing character with amazing evolution.

8 Detective Norm Scully

Disgusting, in the fact that the entire underside of his foot is a huge orange wart, and lazy, given that he spends half the time asleep while his body odour accumulates, and being unable to move four feet without stopping to catch his breath, but without that, the show would be missing something very funny.

Him and Hitchcock are so hilarious, if they would leave the show,t the show would be over for me

9 Doug Judy

"I would never drown your adorable little frog ass" - Doug Judy, Scorpion and Criminal.

10 Detective Michael Hitchcock

Come on, this guy is funny. Bizarre humour that would normally be unexpected, but funny.

He's a budget creed from the office.

The Contenders
11 Madeline Wuntch

The best villain in the show. They should make an exclusive episode about her and Captain Holt.

"Boston? But it's so close to Salem. You do know what they do to witches up there, don't you? "

12 Adrian Pimento Adrian Pimento is a psychologically volatile police officer who spent twelve years undercover infiltrating the mafia. His first appearance is in the third season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, in which he returns to the NYPD's 99th Precinct after his undercover work ends. His series of psychological traumas... read more

Pimento should Rank Higher. The episode where he bets money on the dog show really puts him in the the top 5 in my opinion.

His rambling in the backseat, as the insurance investigator, in the 5th season. Made it for me.

13 Caleb the Cannibal

Make sure you use incognito mode or your targeted ads will get pretty cannibal-specific.

14 Kevin Cozner
15 Detective Warren Pembroke
16 Mlepnos

He has literally no importance to the plot (at least I don't think he does I'm only on season 4) but his appearance never fails to make me laugh. I think he deserves a number 10 on your list.

17 C.J.

To be honest he is my least favorite character ever in this show

18 Fire Marshal Boone

More competitive sarcasm. Would love to see more of him.

19 Bill

"How would you like to be your own boss? "

20 Agent Jack Danger

He thinks that the USPIS are the ultimate heroes of America - that aside, he is actually kind of an idiot himself. He's hilarious.

21 Seth Dozerman
22 Victor Santiago
23 Lynn Boyle
24 Marcus
25 Sheriff Reynolds
