Personally I'd give it to Dean, simply because he thinks he's funny and that makes him funnier than he actually is...

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...

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

How is Ari Gold from Entourage not up there???!!!!

Feb 10, 2009 3:16PM EST

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!

I LOVE Barney!!!! lmao... he's the best, no doubt about it....

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.

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.

Feb 11, 2009 11:58PM EST

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! :)

Feb 12, 2009 6:15AM EST

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

i would say kramer from seinfeld is definitely one of my favorites.but out of the ones above probably sheldon or barney

Default avatar cat
Feb 13, 2009 2:00PM EST

updated :)
Barney - Was mentioned 11 times
Sheldon - Was mentioned 6 times
JD - Was mentioned 5 times
Michael - Was mentioned 3 times

Feb 13, 2009 7:21PM EST

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!

Default avatar cat
Feb 14, 2009 5:24AM EST

JD, Chandler & Michael, very difficult to choose just one!

Default avatar cat
Feb 14, 2009 8:47PM EST

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.

Feb 15, 2009 3:25AM EST

Finally Chandler gets some mentioning, I was getting worried :P

Barney by a clear mile. JD is overrated.

Default avatar cat
Feb 18, 2009 4:12PM EST

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.

Default avatar cat
Feb 18, 2009 6:30PM EST

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

Feb 20, 2009 3:05PM EST

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!

you're completely right about Arrested Development, just recently started watching the series, I'll add them!

Feb 21, 2009 10:10AM EST

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.

Dean, Ari and Barney... Impossible to pick one of them...

Feb 22, 2009 10:16PM EST

BARNEY without a doubt, he absolutly makes that show

Default avatar cat
Feb 22, 2009 11:32PM EST

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 :)

Looks like the Awesome Barney is winning harshly so far :)

Dr Gregory House - Funniest character (albeit in a very harsh way) on any show ever. Followed very closely by Barney then JD :P

Feb 26, 2009 1:10AM EST

Cosmo Kramer such a classicTina Fey love love love her!

Feb 26, 2009 2:35PM EST

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.

Sheldon- he's the funniest character of the group..

Barney Barney Barney!Only the funniest and most awesome guy ever.Can that be counted as 3 vote from me?hee im just kidding.

Feb 28, 2009 10:29PM EST

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

I've put sawyer up there because I like his sarcastic comments but it seems nobody else shares that oppinion with me :[

Default avatar cat
Mar 2, 2009 1:03AM EST

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.

Mar 6, 2009 7:33AM EST

definitely chandler , followed quite closely with barney

Mar 12, 2009 4:56PM EDT

I would pick dean or sheldon they are so great i can't decide which one :D

Default avatar cat
Mar 17, 2009 1:07PM EDT

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!!

Default avatar cat
Mar 18, 2009 4:06PM EDT

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.

Default avatar cat
Mar 19, 2009 5:33PM EDT

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.

Mar 19, 2009 7:19PM EDT

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.
