OK, so here are the rules. Has to be a MALE TV CHARACTER from the last 20 years. Movies don’t count and it can be real OR animated. The funny factor is based on the character and NOT the actor. This list wasn’t easy by any means but I think it comes pretty damn close! Tomorrow we’ll list the top 10 funniest women. Just kidding, women aren’t funny. Now, let the great debate begin!
10. Leon Black (Curb Your Enthusiasm)
*Leon was the perfect addition to a show that was already on the right track
9. Adam DeMamp (Workaholics)
*Adam is by far the funniest out of the three dumb, stoner ‘workaholics’
8. Ron Swanson (Parks And Recreation)
*The man’s man Ron Swanson defines lazy sarcasm
7. Bubbles (Trailer Park Boys)
*The dark horse at #7. If you haven’t seen Trailer Park Boys you are missing out!
6. George Costanza (Seinfeld)
*When you think Seinfeld, you think one-liners. When you think one-liners, you think George Costanza.
5. Charlie Kelly (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia)
*Both repulsive and dumb as nails, Charlie makes everyone feel so much better about themselves.
4. Ja’mie/Jonah/Mr. G (Summer Heights High)
*All 3 of these characters push the envelope to the point of funny awkwardness.
3. Kenny Powers (Eastbound And Down)
*Having the freedom of being uncensored, Kenny Powers gets away with whatever he wants on HBO
2. Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm)
*No one has nailed real life awkward situations and made them funnier than Larry David. Man is a genius.
1. Michael Scott (The Office)
*One man has never single-handedly carried a show on his shoulders like Michael Scott. Yes, the show is still on TV but it was never the same after his departure. An obvious #1 in my mind.
Honorable mentions: Tom Haverford (Parks And Recreation), Dwight Shrute (The Office), Cam Tucker (Modern Family), ‘Gob’ Bluth (Arrested Development), Eric Cartman (South Park)
