Comedians who are famous and highly unfunny

ok so i did a search and couldnt find anything on this.
Who do you think the worst comedians who made it big are?
i think my top one would have to be Cedrik the Entertainer who isnt funny at all. It boggles me how he got into all these movies and onto the steve harvey show (Yes Steve harvey sucks too, but still)
my other would probably have to be carrot top. Those collect commercials are just plain lame and hes a ugly SOB with an annoying voice.
so what do you all think?

Adam Sandler. He's the kid in the sandbox who needs his ass kicked. And he's not funny.

Bob Saget, though not really a comedian, he tries to be funny and just ends up needing to be shot.

I really dislike the particular brand of comedy that involves the afterthought/footnote. I'm not sure what you'd call it, but it's when someone says something mundane and then right after says something ironic or contradictory to what they just said really fast. I'm not sure why but the comics that do that just grate on my nerves.

I disagree with your picks, skinnymofo. I like 'em both.

My pick is Rosie O'Donnell. I don't like her stand-up.
Kevin James wasn't that funny to me, either.
He is on his show, though, imo.

I dont care if he's a comic legend or not.. Rodney Dangerfield is the most annoying, non-funny person ever! I would rather listen to an entire Spice Girls CD than hear one of his "I dont get no respect" jokes. He sucks so bad. Caddyshack is one of my favorite comedies, until the part where he is making jokes. I'm glad I found this thread, I needed to let this out.

I give Rodney Dangerfield a second vote.

As well as colin quin. That guy has to beg for people to laugh. His show is terrible, his shit on SNL was horrid, the man should just quit life.

I agree totally with the Colin Quinn pick. I don't believe I have ever heard anything even remotely funny escape his pie hole. Anybody who thinks telling other people to "shut-up stupid" is funny, should be thrown into a padded cell, not given their own show.

I'm going to be the outcast and say that I find Dangerfield hilarious, but maybe that's just me.

But, I'll second the vote for Seinfeld. Never thought he was funny. Everyone else on the show was funny but him.

I'll also second the vote for Lewis Black being funny. My wife & I have tickets to see him at the end of this month.

that's probalby because you're male and thus have a harder time relating to women. i find female comedians (margaret cho immediatly springs to mind) all of the time.

I can't stand Andrew Dice Clay. Rodney is pretty funny in that I'm a really pathetic old horny guy kinda way.

I think Tom Green in funny to an extent, when he's not just messing with people.

That's what I can't stand about certain comedians. I think good comedians are those who are funny without singling out and making fun of people at their expense.

Same here.

Although, there are a few female comedians who are very funny, a large majority of their acts seem to revolve around "men are so stupid, my boyfriend/husband said the other day ______" add on a crappy punchline and repeat 20 times and there's their entire set.

I also despise people who resort to the same "joke" for months on end. For example, Judy Gold.

there are fewer funny female comedians because there are fewer female comedians, there are fewer female comedians because woman are not encouraged to be funny. to stereotype an entire gender as less funny than the other gender is simplistic. i happen to be very funny and also equipped with a working vagina.

I disagree to the millionth degree. Not only is "Seinfeld" the best sitcom ever created but Jerry's stand up work is brilliant.

Who's not funny? Kevin James and ANY of the Wayons brothers

I realize there are a bunch of funny female comedians, the show Last Comic Standing shows that. But many of the ones that are shown or glorified on TV fall into the catagories I stated which is a damn shame in my opinion.

Speaking of unfunny female comedians, Kathy Griffin just annoys the hell out of me.

Andy Dick isn't a female comedian, but he might as well be. He just gives off that gay vibe IMO. I'm not saying he isn't funny because I think he's gay, I just don't find him funny at all.

I agree with all of these, but I have to give Chris Rock the Idiot Stamp of Approval®. He's easily the most not-funny comedian I've ever seen. Just seeing him makes me cringe.
