The funniest character for me (and also my favourite) would have to be the hilarious (and of course awesome) BARNEY STINSON!!!!
| Jul 15, 2011 11:54PM EDT
JD!! He carried scrubs.
| May 18, 2011 2:53PM EDT
barney, sheldon, jd :) barnabus stinson is legen...wait for it... DARY!
| Feb 1, 2011 8:34AM EST
dwight schrute wins by a landslide!!!
| Jan 25, 2011 12:53AM EST
Hands Down George Costanza
| Jan 21, 2011 12:09AM EST
sheldon chuck chandler from friends (not the whole cast!)
| Jan 14, 2011 9:07PM EST
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.
| Dec 20, 2010 9:26PM EST

| Aug 17, 2010 2:32PM EDT
doug wilson by far
| Mar 25, 2009 12:13PM EDT
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
| Mar 25, 2009 12:07AM EDT
where is Joey Tribbiani? He should definitely be in here.
| Mar 21, 2009 8:59AM EDT
Barney and Chandler. :>
| 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.
| 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 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.
| 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!!
| Mar 12, 2009 4:56PM EDT
I would pick dean or sheldon they are so great i can't decide which one :D
| Mar 6, 2009 7:33AM EST
definitely chandler , followed quite closely with barney
| Mar 4, 2009 10:14PM EST
Obviously everyone has it wrong....it's Kramer of course...gettie up!
| 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 1, 2009 6:48AM EST
I've put sawyer up there because I like his sarcastic comments but it seems nobody else shares that oppinion with me :[
| 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
| Feb 27, 2009 4:45AM EST
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 26, 2009 6:32PM EST
Sheldon- he's the funniest character of the group..
| 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.
| Feb 26, 2009 1:10AM EST
Cosmo Kramer such a classicTina Fey love love love her!
| Feb 25, 2009 9:08PM EST
chandler and barneey, chuck is awesome too
| Feb 25, 2009 9:05PM EST
monk and larry david
| Feb 25, 2009 10:55AM EST
Dr Gregory House - Funniest character (albeit in a very harsh way) on any show ever. Followed very closely by Barney then JD :P
| Feb 24, 2009 1:14PM EST
Barney - 24 JD - 11 Sheldon - 9 Michael - 8 Looks like the Awesome Barney is winning harshly so far :)
| Feb 24, 2009 12:50PM EST
hmm hard choice but i'd say:1: Barney2: Chandler3: Chuck
| Feb 24, 2009 9:25AM EST
Gob defintely, then Barney.If i was to say anyone else, it would have to be Tobias from AD.
| Feb 24, 2009 9:02AM EST
Barney and Chandler!
| 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 :)
| Feb 22, 2009 10:16PM EST
BARNEY without a doubt, he absolutly makes that show
| Feb 22, 2009 8:17PM EST
Definitely has to be Jayne!! And in second place Michael Scott from the Office with Cappie from Greek in third!
| Feb 22, 2009 2:05AM EST
larry davidjdbarneysheldonmonk
| Feb 22, 2009 1:51AM EST
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
| Feb 22, 2009 1:42AM EST
totally forgot about larry david..embarassed for myself gotta change my vote now to1-jd2-larry david3-barney
| Feb 21, 2009 11:31AM EST
Dean, Ari and Barney... Impossible to pick one of 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.
| Feb 20, 2009 8:32PM EST
you're completely right about Arrested Development, just recently started watching the series, I'll add them!
| 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!
| Feb 19, 2009 8:44PM EST
i love j.d. and barney but i have to say sheldon is the funniest.
| Feb 19, 2009 7:46AM EST
barney is aaaaaaaawesome :-)
| 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 Chandler - Was mentioned 3 times Ouch for Sawyer, Cappie, Gary and Jayne nobody mentioned them even once!
| 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.
| Feb 18, 2009 1:38PM EST
Barney by a clear mile. JD is overrated.
| Feb 17, 2009 12:50PM EST
Dean and Tina fey
| Feb 15, 2009 3:25AM EST
Finally Chandler gets some mentioning, I was getting worried :P
| 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 14, 2009 5:24AM EST
JD, Chandler & Michael, very difficult to choose just one!
| 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!
| 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 7:09AM EST
i would say kramer from seinfeld is definitely one of my favorites.but out of the ones above probably sheldon or barney
| Feb 12, 2009 2:37PM EST
| Feb 12, 2009 1:27PM EST
for me it is definetly barney :D barney rocks the world ;)second place would be michael :D
| Feb 12, 2009 12:07PM EST
Barney - Was mentioned 8 times JD - Was mentioned 4 times Sheldon - Was mentioned 4 times Michael - Was mentioned 2 times keep voting! :P
| 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
| 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 11, 2009 2:46AM EST
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 1:24AM EST
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
| Feb 10, 2009 6:45PM EST
I LOVE Barney!!!! lmao... he's the best, no doubt about it....
| Feb 10, 2009 4:15PM EST
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' ^^
| 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!
| Feb 10, 2009 1:01PM EST
How is Ari Gold from Entourage not up there???!!!!
| Feb 9, 2009 10:02PM EST
| Feb 9, 2009 11:05AM EST
I've got to put in a vote for a character not on the list! Michael Scott (The Office) all the way.
| Feb 8, 2009 9:12PM EST
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
| Feb 8, 2009 7:22PM EST
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...
| Feb 8, 2009 5:43PM EST
Personally I'd give it to Dean, simply because he thinks he's funny and that makes him funnier than he actually is...
| Feb 7, 2009 6:56PM EST
personlly i think sheldon barney and chuck are in barney stinsons words " legendary"
| Feb 7, 2009 9:15AM EST
for me its only between two people, Jd and Barney so id have to pick Jd.
