TV Funniest Person on TV


Who, in your opinion, currently holds the title as the funniest person on TV?


Do What Thou Wilt
Ah, the new show Louie has some great laugh out loud moments, but I could understand why some people may not like that show's humor, so probably not him. But Steve Carrell on the Office consistently delivers, and in a way that most people can laugh at, so I have to say him.


In my opinion, it's Daniel Tosh. No person on TV makes me laugh harder or more than he does. Tosh.0 makes me laugh from start to finish 98% of the time. He even took the throne from Colbert and Stewart over on Comedy Central.

She's the new old David Letterman. More risque but that's due to moral deflation.

Billy Connolly. So.. i'm not sure he would be classified as TV, he does do shows though. e.g. World Tour of NZ. He cracks me up no end.

It was tough for me...I'm a huge fan of people like Joel McHale, Steve Carrell, Daniel Tosh and Jon Stewart.

I think my final choice, if I had to pick one this minute, would be Stephen Colbert. Hilarious, intelligent, and a master of satire. Even while using intelligent humor, he can fit in ridiculous stuff and laugh at him self all the time.

Talk to me in the fall and it will be back to the man, the myth, the legend...Conan O'Brien. If that can count now, he'd outdo Colbert for me. And pretty much anyone in history. :)

No I think Steve Carrell always makes me laugh. just the way he says things, but I don't think he's as funny as he is in real life when he's in The Office. When he's on the Tonight Show or when he was doing that LeBron spoof, I thought he was much funnier.

I believe he was on the show Head of The Class during its final season or last 2 seasons.

IMHO there are two (2) kings of TV comedy and they are Red Skelton & Lou Costello and no comic today as even come close to their mastery of the art of comedy.
