Worst Stand-Up Comedians Ever

Darrell

The Top Ten

1 Dane Cook 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.

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. "

I have never even known anyone who likes this belligerent screaming faux entertainer. He shouldn't be on this list, as calling him a comedian is an insult to every other comedian.

Dane Cook = D.C. = Don't Care

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. - ghmaster1354

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.

So many better Hispanic comedians.

3 Sarah Silverman Sarah Silverman

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.

Not terrible, not great. Still acts like making fun of Christians and republicans is somehow edgy.

I don't like her political views but she's a funny comedian, unfair to be on the list

4 Larry the Cable Guy 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.

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

I love Larry! Terrific one liners and a likable personality! I don't think he should be on the list. - Ratman18

Deserves to be #1 easily

If you rely on saying Git Er Done to get laughs you need to seriously just kill yourself

5 Amy Schumer 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.

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. - olliv

Painfully unfunny. She's like the female equivalent to Daniel Tosh, only much worse! Hell, I use to like her stuff.

I couldn't watch 15 minutes of her special without wanting to shove my head under a moving steamroller

Garbage! - BusinessDuck

6 Rosie O'Donnell Rosie O'Donnell

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.

I've never found Rosie funny.

Fat Sarah Silverman?

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

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

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. - Ratman18

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

8 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 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,...

9 Jeff Dunham 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.

This guy is extremely homophobic and his puppets are creepy!

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

Who made this list? Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeff Dunham on the WORST list? Why? - Ratman18

Typical American comedy. stupid noise. one line dumb comment. a bit of racism and everyone laughs.. nothing in it. it's terrible

10 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.

I think Rogan is pretty funny--He doesn't care who he offends or what he says, it's funny. When you see a comedian it's not about being PC and boring. Tons on this list don't make me laugh, but I'm more of a Chris Rock/Chappelle type of fan, and Rogan has some similar traits. Excellent--I get he can get a little loud, so the Everybody loves Raymond types probably won't like it---Family Guy crowd loves it.

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

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

Agree with the above post. I've never heard her tell an actual joke.

Never told a joke in her life

Yes! Never heard her tell a joke. What am I not getting?! And I'm a gay man, supposedly her most loyal demo. Maybe it's because I'm a comedy writer but still.

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

Funniest quote "smells like Satan pinched a loaf in here" enough said

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

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

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.

He used to be better, but now he just sucks. His T.V. show is awful. The jokes aren't witty and the humor is childish. Every episode is pretty much the same repetitive thing over and over! - olliv

His voice sounds like a gorilla, even worse, my dad likes him of his stupid jokes!

How is he worse than Tom green and Pauly shore!?!

His material is painful to the eyes and ears.

16 Pauly Shore 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!

17 Frank Caliendo 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.

18 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?
