The funniest character for me (and also my favourite) would have to be the hilarious (and of course awesome) BARNEY STINSON!!!!
| 23:54 EDT, 15 Jul, 2011
JD!! He carried scrubs.
| 14:53 EDT, 18 May, 2011
barney, sheldon, jd :) barnabus stinson is legen...wait for it... DARY!
| 08:34 EST, 01 Feb, 2011
dwight schrute wins by a landslide!!!
| 00:53 EST, 25 Jan, 2011
Hands Down George Costanza
| 00:09 EST, 21 Jan, 2011
sheldon chuck chandler from friends (not the whole cast!)
| 21:07 EST, 14 Jan, 2011
ummmm.... thats one of the hardest questions ever. idk its between barney, J.D and sheldon. so ill order them 1. J.D 2. Sheldon 3. Barney srry barney but sheldon and barney are laugh out loud funny but J.D just does something to you.
| 21:26 EST, 20 Dec, 2010
JD was funniest when with turk funniest single character is defanatly barney
| 14:32 EDT, 17 Aug, 2010
doug wilson by far
| 12:13 EDT, 25 Mar, 2009
Barney - 30 J.D - 14 Sheldon - 12 Chandler - 11J Michael - 9 Larry David - 4 Chuck - 4 Dean - 4 Dwight - 4 Kramer - 4 Monk - 3 Tina Fey - 3 :D
| 00:07 EDT, 25 Mar, 2009
where is Joey Tribbiani? He should definitely be in here.
| 08:59 EDT, 21 Mar, 2009
Barney and Chandler. :>
| 19:19 EDT, 19 Mar, 2009
I must agree with all of you who said, Barney and J.D. I actully neverwatched Scrubs till it turned up on Comedy Central I couldn't believe that I'd never watched it before. I couldn't help but laugh at some of the stuff He came up with, especially in his day dreams."How I met your mother" I just happened to come across an episode and Barney was just should I say it, LE...GEN...DARY. I couldn't believe this guy. He was a riot. He will go to such lengths, be shameless in the process and still come out on top. I now tune in every week just to see what he will do, or say next. Both these guys just have the greatest characters. I tip my hat to there awsomeness.
| 17:33 EDT, 19 Mar, 2009
damn i forgot to mention a character i find very funny not on the list CHARLIE HARPER from 2 and a half men.Does nobody else agree with me on that one.However chandler is still my favourite.
| 16:06 EDT, 18 Mar, 2009
Its between J.D and Chandler .J.D is funny in a stupid way while chandler is funny in a sarcastic way.I have to go with chandler because of his lack of votes!!!!Come on he was the funniest person on friends and friends was the best show ever back in its day.Sheldon is also very funny too.
| 13:07 EDT, 17 Mar, 2009
As the office has two funny people in it.. I think Office should win the Show with most funny people in it.. Even the Indian girl, Kelly is also hilarious, and Kevin (the bald one) and Andy.. But Steve Carell is the best!! he is simply stupidity personified!! Love him!! well not him but his acting!!
| 16:56 EDT, 12 Mar, 2009
I would pick dean or sheldon they are so great i can't decide which one :D
| 07:33 EST, 06 Mar, 2009
definitely chandler , followed quite closely with barney
| 22:14 EST, 04 Mar, 2009
Obviously everyone has it's Kramer of course...gettie up!
| 01:03 EST, 02 Mar, 2009
Sawyer is funny.....but in my opinion the best sarcastic comments from lost come from Benjamin Linus who has his funny moments. Johnny Drama and Ari Gold from Entourage. Jim and Dwight from the office are hilarious together. Andy from Weeds. I'd give the funniest character to Dwight from the office. He's hilarious because he's just the guy who has to be right no matter what and his funniest moments come from when Jim is messing with him.
| 06:48 EST, 01 Mar, 2009
I've put sawyer up there because I like his sarcastic comments but it seems nobody else shares that oppinion with me :[
| 22:29 EST, 28 Feb, 2009
why is sawyer on there? he's not even funny, ii'd say it comes down to chuck and Barney but Barney wins easily he's LEGEN-wait for it-DARY
| 04:45 EST, 27 Feb, 2009
Barney Barney Barney!Only the funniest and most awesome guy ever.Can that be counted as 3 vote from me?hee im just kidding.
| 18:32 EST, 26 Feb, 2009
Sheldon- he's the funniest character of the group..
| 14:35 EST, 26 Feb, 2009
My vote goes to Liz Lemon! She's only gotten more hilarious and fantastic as 30 Rock continues and I think she's one of the more unique and clever characters currently on TV.
| 01:10 EST, 26 Feb, 2009
Cosmo Kramer such a classicTina Fey love love love her!
| 21:08 EST, 25 Feb, 2009
chandler and barneey, chuck is awesome too
| 21:05 EST, 25 Feb, 2009
monk and larry david
| 10:55 EST, 25 Feb, 2009
Dr Gregory House - Funniest character (albeit in a very harsh way) on any show ever. Followed very closely by Barney then JD :P
| 13:14 EST, 24 Feb, 2009
Barney - 24 JD - 11 Sheldon - 9 Michael - 8 Looks like the Awesome Barney is winning harshly so far :)
| 12:50 EST, 24 Feb, 2009
hmm hard choice but i'd say:1: Barney2: Chandler3: Chuck
| 09:25 EST, 24 Feb, 2009
Gob defintely, then Barney.If i was to say anyone else, it would have to be Tobias from AD.
| 09:02 EST, 24 Feb, 2009
Barney and Chandler!
| 23:32 EST, 22 Feb, 2009
to be fair, I don't know all of these characters and don't watch all of these shows, but based on my TV-show experiences, definitely MICHAEL SCOTT. The Office is amazing. my second choice would be a Dwight, although Barney is awesome as well. Third for him :)
| 22:16 EST, 22 Feb, 2009
BARNEY without a doubt, he absolutly makes that show
| 20:17 EST, 22 Feb, 2009
Definitely has to be Jayne!! And in second place Michael Scott from the Office with Cappie from Greek in third!
| 02:05 EST, 22 Feb, 2009
larry davidjdbarneysheldonmonk
| 01:51 EST, 22 Feb, 2009
and while i have monk not quite at the top of my list he is definitely in my top five and is worth being added to the list
| 01:42 EST, 22 Feb, 2009
totally forgot about larry david..embarassed for myself gotta change my vote now to1-jd2-larry david3-barney
| 11:31 EST, 21 Feb, 2009
Dean, Ari and Barney... Impossible to pick one of them...
| 10:10 EST, 21 Feb, 2009
I would have to vote Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute from the Office. Both hysterical! However, instead of Sawyer for Lost, I totally would've chosen Hurley! Although not the funniest character of all time, for that show, he'd totally get my vote.
| 20:32 EST, 20 Feb, 2009
you're completely right about Arrested Development, just recently started watching the series, I'll add them!
| 15:05 EST, 20 Feb, 2009
I might have to nominate a new one: GOB from Arrested Development! Or Buster from AD! Someone from Arrested Development! I also love Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and Dennis and Charlie from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. And Samantha from Sex and the City!
| 20:44 EST, 19 Feb, 2009
i love j.d. and barney but i have to say sheldon is the funniest.
| 07:46 EST, 19 Feb, 2009
barney is aaaaaaaawesome :-)
| 18:30 EST, 18 Feb, 2009
I have updated the list :] Barney - Was mentioned 13 times Sheldon - Was mentioned 7 times JD - Was mentioned 8 times Michael - Was mentioned 5 times Chandler - Was mentioned 3 times Ouch for Sawyer, Cappie, Gary and Jayne nobody mentioned them even once!
| 16:12 EST, 18 Feb, 2009
I have to go with JD, I love his character.And I disagree with Michael being the choice from the Office, I think Dwight should have been there, his character is unbelievably funny.
| 13:38 EST, 18 Feb, 2009
Barney by a clear mile. JD is overrated.
| 12:50 EST, 17 Feb, 2009
Dean and Tina fey
| 03:25 EST, 15 Feb, 2009
Finally Chandler gets some mentioning, I was getting worried :P
| 20:47 EST, 14 Feb, 2009
barney j.d and chandler for me. all three are just tooooo funny. i cant choose one above any of them so i go with all three.
| 05:24 EST, 14 Feb, 2009
JD, Chandler & Michael, very difficult to choose just one!
| 19:21 EST, 13 Feb, 2009
first of all they are all funny but i think sheldon michael and kramer are more because their funnyness (?) is very far from the tradicional sitcom style. has anyone ever seen a "sheldon"? when his voice gets high pitched it's just perfect!
| 14:00 EST, 13 Feb, 2009
updated :) Barney - Was mentioned 11 times Sheldon - Was mentioned 6 times JD - Was mentioned 5 times Michael - Was mentioned 3 times
| 07:09 EST, 13 Feb, 2009
i would say kramer from seinfeld is definitely one of my favorites.but out of the ones above probably sheldon or barney
| 14:37 EST, 12 Feb, 2009
| 13:27 EST, 12 Feb, 2009
for me it is definetly barney :D barney rocks the world ;)second place would be michael :D
| 12:07 EST, 12 Feb, 2009
Barney - Was mentioned 8 times JD - Was mentioned 4 times Sheldon - Was mentioned 4 times Michael - Was mentioned 2 times keep voting! :P
| 06:15 EST, 12 Feb, 2009
Despite there are others (like JD, Michael, Barney and Hank) that are unforgetable and deliciously funny, SHELDON is my winner! For me, he is the truly funny character, wonderfully performed.Big Bang Theory rocks. It brings out the little geek inside each one of us :D
| 23:58 EST, 11 Feb, 2009
I noticed there are no women on your list so I think you should add Tina Fey from 30 Rock. She's hilarious no matter what she does! :)
| 02:46 EST, 11 Feb, 2009
of the shows on here that I have seen, it's without a doubt Barney. After his play that character will always have a special place in my heart.
| 01:24 EST, 11 Feb, 2009
I only actually know a few of those characters. Chandler was definitely funny in his day, but the years have watered down my memory of his comedy. Doug from Weeds is hilariously boneheaded. Michael from the Office is hilariously clueless. Sheldon from Big Bang is hilariously socially retarded.... But man, oh man. Barney from HIMYM is just hilarious in every way. Not only does he think he's the funniest, coolest, most adorable guy out there, he totally is. The more wacky he is, the more you love him for it. Of all of them, Barney's the only one I would actually want to hang out with, I think. So, VOTE BARNEY
| 18:45 EST, 10 Feb, 2009
I LOVE Barney!!!! lmao... he's the best, no doubt about it....
| 16:15 EST, 10 Feb, 2009
sorry broncbay I put up the nominations only from the shows I watch, thats why I said someone else perhaps I did not mention? :) btw so far: Barney - Was mentioned 4 timesJD - Was mentioned 3 timesSheldon - Was mentioned 2 timesChuck - Was mentioned 1 timeDean - Was mentioned 1 timeMichael S. - Was Mentioned 1 timeAri G. - Was mentioned 1 time keep on 'voting' ^^
| 15:16 EST, 10 Feb, 2009
Barney stinson, followed closely by J.D. I mean the man wrote a bro code and had a bracket to find out which girl he'd slept with was tormenting him!
| 13:01 EST, 10 Feb, 2009
How is Ari Gold from Entourage not up there???!!!!
| 22:02 EST, 09 Feb, 2009
| 11:05 EST, 09 Feb, 2009
I've got to put in a vote for a character not on the list! Michael Scott (The Office) all the way.
| 21:12 EST, 08 Feb, 2009
To be honest I wanted to give the whole cast of the Friends show a "nomination" but after alot of thinking I gave it to Chandler since beeing funny was his 'thing' :P
| 19:22 EST, 08 Feb, 2009
Jd of course ! He is the funniest character ever !And personally I would have chosen Joey or Ross rather than Chandler in the Friends's characters, but perhaps that's just me...
| 17:43 EST, 08 Feb, 2009
Personally I'd give it to Dean, simply because he thinks he's funny and that makes him funnier than he actually is...
| 18:56 EST, 07 Feb, 2009
personlly i think sheldon barney and chuck are in barney stinsons words " legendary"
| 09:15 EST, 07 Feb, 2009
for me its only between two people, Jd and Barney so id have to pick Jd.
