Worst Stand-Up Comedians Ever

The Top Ten

1 Amy Schumer Amy Beth Schumer is an American stand-up comedian, writer, actress, and producer. She is the creator, co-producer, co-writer and star of the sketch comedy series Inside Amy Schumer, which debuted on Comedy Central in 2013 and has received a Peabody Award.

I personally have a huge distaste for Schumer's work. Though hate for her typically breeds sexist comments and rude remarks about her body weight, I genuinely think that she wants to be hailed as this beautiful feminist icon who isn't perfect and that's okay. It's a good message, but the problem is, she herself has not been able to carry that out.

Not only are her jokes often flat and frequently disgusting, but she constantly steals jokes. This has been proven several times, and many, many comedians have made allegations of her stealing jokes. It's not something to write off because dozens of Youtube videos have been made to compare her jokes to the accusers' and they're literally the exact same. We really, really need to be emphasizing this more in popular culture because, not only did she blow up in popularity despite her horrible sense of humor, but she became popular despite having stolen all that horrible humor. To me, that is a great tragedy to comedy.

She herself ...more

Fat and sloppy. Thank god half America is fat and sloppy to laugh.

If Sonic has a least favorite, it wold without any doubt in my mind be her.

She should be in first. Amy Schumer is disgusting and not funny at all. I would rather stare at a wall for 2 hours than listen to her vulgar, hypocritical jokes. I have never once laughed at anything she said unless it was one of her ridiculous conspiracy theories against conservatives for why her ratings are so low. Amy Schumer is not only one of the worst comedians of our time, she is one of the worst celebrities too.

2 Dane Cook Dane Jeffrey Cook is an American stand-up comedian and film actor. He has released five comedy albums: Harmful If Swallowed; Retaliation; Vicious Circle; Rough Around The Edges: Live From Madison Square Garden; and Isolated Incident.

He's basically a Von Dutch hat that learned to yell really loud.

You think he's building up to a punchline, but then he suddenly veers off into some random rambling that isn't remotely funny.

why is this guy a comedian? if he could just learn to shut up he could be a very successful mime.

"I can't come up with anything inherently funny, so I'll just yell a lot. "

3 Carlos Mencia

Everything he does just screams neediness! I can't stand him. He steals jokes and the worst part is they gave that idiot his own show. I cringe and feel the need to vomit every time I see his face.

An annoying, stereotipical, retarded Mexican who steals jokes from comedians way funnier than him. If he at least came up with his jokes, people would laugh at them.

The most annoying personality rounded off with the opinions of a stupid schmuck who thinks society is retarded when really it's just him and his stupid stereotypical nature.

Made a big career based on other people's material, and that's not funny. He's fessed up to it recently, but only after his career tanked.

4 Sarah Silverman Sarah Kate Silverman (born December 1, 1970) is an American stand-up comedian, actress, producer, and writer. Her comedy addresses social taboos and controversial topics, such as racism, sexism, politics, and religion, sometimes having her comic character endorse them in a satirical or deadpan fashion. ...read more.

I agree with the post: Not terrible, not great. There are way too many people rightly in this list that should be higher on this list that Sarah. She wouldn't be on my worst of list.

Cone on! This woman is talented and I think she's one of the most hilarious female stand-up comedians.

I don't know how she is able to sustain a career in comedy. She is extremely unfunny.

Hot. Hilarious. Sorry. But it's my opinion.

5 Larry the Cable Guy Daniel Lawrence Whitney, known professionally by his stage name Larry the Cable Guy, is an American stand-up comedian, actor, former radio personality and comedian.

You might be a redneck if you tell the worst jokes imaginable

Ugh. How is he so low? How can you laugh at the phrase "Get er done"? What is funny about it? Is it that he say's "er" instead of "it"? He is as funny as a burp. If its ridiculously long you might smile, but that's it.

Extremely unfunny. Definitely should be higher on this list than Sarah. Sarah has made me laugh (not much) but I have never even smiled, not even exhaled out my nose from a joke by this idiot

I think Dan Whitney is a good guy. But, the cable guy shtick needs to go gently into that good night.

6 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 swear to god having a dog turd on stage for an hour is more entertaining than carrot top

Was funny the first time, then repeat, repeat, repeat,...

He sucks and is so damn ugly

Was never funny. no humour. no intelligence or talent. and you can tell he hates himself because of it.

7 Jeff Foxworthy Jeffrey Marshall "Jeff" Foxworthy is an American stand-up comedian, actor, television and radio personality, author, and voice artist.

Just like Larry, he is a likable person and has jokes that make me roll on the floor in laughter. Shouldn't be on the list.

You know you're a bad comedian when your entire career is based of a list that's only funny to rednecks

B.S. the talented Mr. Foxworthy made redneck humor mainstream.

8 Kathy Griffin Kathleen Mary "Kathy" Griffin is an American actress, comedian, writer, producer, and television host.

If she ever said anything funny I wouldn't know due to not being able to stomach that annoying voice of hers for more than 5 seconds.

Terrible, not funny at all. I change the Chanel the minute she speaks!

Thinks a photo shoot featuring the severed head of The President of the United States is comedy.

Ever seen her stand up specials? Not one funny joke. They're all overrated.

9 Rosie O'Donnell Roseann O'Donnell (born March 21, 1962) is an American comedian, actress, author, and television personality. She has been a magazine editor and continues to be a celebrity blogger, a lesbian rights activist, a television producer, and a collaborative partner in the LGBT family vacation company, R Family ...read more.

I didn't even know she was a comedian until now.

God, I love the fact oprah put her on her channel to save her failing T.V. Station, but she is just outright not funny.

South Park was right about her weight. They really does look like that abomination that came from the Trapper Keeper.

Didn't even know she was a comedian, but I guess that makes sense considering how wacky her political views are.

10 Jeff Dunham Jeffrey "Jeff" Dunham is an American ventriloquist, producer, and stand-up comedian who has also appeared on numerous television shows, including Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central Presents, The Tonight Show and Sonny With a Chance.

What sensitive uncultured swine made this list. You shouldn't be making list if your just gonna disregard their jokes and add random comedians, that you think hurt someone's feelings. If a joke pisses you off then you don't have the ability to correctly gage if someone is funny. Like trying to be a food critic, but you hate vegetables.

Who made this list? Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeff Dunham on the WORST list? Why?

How in the heck is this guy not #1 on this list? He's not FUNNY. Seriously, Kim Jong Un is funnier than this guy!

He sticks his hand in a dolls a$$ how is that stand up

The Contenders

11 Andy Dick Andrew Roane "Andy" Dick is an American comedian, actor, musician, and television and film producer. Throughout his career, Dick has experienced arrests, legal issues, and controversies. Some of his most offensive moments include indecent exposure, drug intoxication, saying insensitive and racist remarks, ...read more.

A cartoon that somehow came to life, but forgot how to be funny or entertaining.

Not only is he unfunny, but he’s also an absolute monster. He got Phil Hartman’s wife back into drugs. She then killed Phil during a crack bender.

Remember that one time where he exposed his genitals at a comedy club?

The fact that he isn't even in the top ten makes us all doomed.

12 Russell Brand

Stupid British humor, doesn't deserve to be recognized as a comedian

What? This guys a mega laugh

Great guy!

13 Tom Green Michael Thomas "Tom" Green is a Canadian actor, rapper, writer, comedian, producer, director, talk show host, and media personality.

His material is painful to the eyes and ears.

I thought comedy was supposed to be funny

Had good 5 minutes... in the 90's

14 Gallagher

DAVE CHAPELLE'S BLACK GALLAGHER IS BETTER

Black Gallager is better.

15 Joe Rogan

This douchebag just shouts and whines, and talks about things he hates, which can be a little funny at first, but then it becomes dull and boring. It's also annoying how he seems to be shouting all the time all through out his routine, as if his audience were deaf or something. His jokes are also not funny.

I was forced to listen to his pod cast today on a road trip... I wanted to jump from the moving vehicle within minutes... It was that bad. He may have a corky thing or two to say if you listen for like 2+ hours, but as a whole he sucks.

Yeah. He's jokes are slightly funny, but all that shouting is seriously annoying. His schtick is that of a college-aged type comedian, but is a balding mid to late 40's, viagra-using douche.

His comedy is for try not to cringe challenges. Every time I feel I should have a serious face but I feel like laughing I visualize his Brock Lesnar bit to calm myself down.

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

He's Jokes were funny 10 years ago, wish he came up with some new material. A comedian who lost his gift

Rudest comedian ever, make offensive jokes

Just goes for shock value for every joke, nothing better than playground jokes.

17 Jimmy Fallon James Thomas "Jimmy" Fallon is an American comedian, television host, actor, singer, writer, and producer.

I mean, not the worst talk show host out there (James Corden) but somehow clearly lacks any apparent talent

Not many people walking the planet that are more punchable than this guy.

He's not great. He's just okay. Most people in the younger audiences would enjoy his show more because of the fun and exciting way he presents these A-List celebrities. The problem is that he only accomplishes this easy way of talking through very, very long fake laughing and tedious games. Even when he was on SNL, he wasn't great and often broke first. He's just notorious for laughing at inappropriate times and for inappropriate lengths. That's what diminishes his comedy quality. Honestly, he isn't a very funny person or a particularly entertaining one either; just his ability to bring on actually interesting celebrities and appeal to younger audiences has made him more famous than his more-deserving colleagues.

I have broken down his show into a few parts. 3%- actual talking, 10% playing games, 45%- doing impressions, 52%- laughing. And yes, I know that adds up to 110%. He laughs that much.

18 Eddie Izzard

Who?

19 Frank Caliendo Frank Caliendo is an American comedian and impressionist, best known for his work on the Fox Network television series MADtv, and as the in-house prognosticator for Fox NFL Sunday.

He won't be on any of my best of lists. But his John Madden impression is one of my guilty pleasures.

Impressionists should still have to have a joke or two in their arsenal.

20 Pauly Shore

It says a lot when "A Goofy Movie" is by far and away your funniest movie. He wasn't even the main star, and his face wasn't on-screen!

You can go through an entire set and not even smile once. His "jokes" lack any punch line, are completely inane and after he's done, your IQ has dropped by at least 50 points. He deserves to be on top.

21 Paula Poundstone

I've now reviewed a few worst of lists where comedians were lambasted for their crassness. Paula wouldn't be on my 10 best list, but I wouldn't put her on a worst of list either. After numerous complaints about politically incorrect material from other comedians, is Paula's crime being too G rated?

Never found her funny.

22 Frank Skinner

Whoever put this on obviously hasnt seen his most recent special, he has matured his humour massively

23 Russell Howard Russell Joseph Howard is an English comedian, television and radio presenter and actor, best known for his TV show Russell Howard's Good News and his appearances on the topical panel TV show Mock the Week.

Don't know why he's on here! Extremely funny guy!

I wholeheartedly believe it would take me a frontal lobe lobotomy to find this guy even vaguely amusing

I’m English, but am embarrassed is one of ours, America please adopt this talentless moron who tries to convince the audience he’s funny, shame on whoever is weak enough to laugh.

24 Yakov Smirnoff

Dated, primitive, annoying

Boring. enough said.
