That's kind of an oxymoron, we can't help but like people that make us laugh.

Vince Vaughn seems funny on a personal level, but shouldn't bother acting

I forgot about him, he's a Republican, and I think I laughed at him once.

Wanda Sykes, maybe.

Mitch Hedberg.  I love his jokes in written form.  Absolutely hilarious.  Just for some reason when he delivers them it grates on my nerves.

Steven Wright for the same reason.  Except his scene in "So I Married an Axe Murderer", that was gold.

/"I was born 8 1/2 months premature.  The doctors were freaking out"

Ricky Gervais. He's a criminal level POS but has some funny bits.
 
2020-10-30 6:01:34 PM  
Will Ferrell. He gotten a lot of work and most of my friends think he's hilarious...but I just can't stand watching him.

Breaker Moran: Wanda Sykes, maybe.


Wanda is a way better writer than performer. The stuff she's written for other people has been gold.

I can't stand Russell Brand. The only thing I could really stomach him in was Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and that was mainly because my liking of Mila Kunis and Jason Segel barely surpassed my loathing of Brand.

I can't stand Steve Carell. He is somehow, a whiter, stupider Will Ferrell. I liked him much more when he was played by Griffin Dunne.

I was digging through a box of crap from high school a few years ago after my mom died. Found a playbill from a night I went to see a Second City performance out in the suburbs. I remembered a few members of the cast, and I even recall some lines. But it surprised me that Carell was in that show. I have no memory of him. None whatsoever. Amy Sedaris, yes. Ken Campbell, Razowski, yep. Not Carell.

For some reason I just can't stand her at all.
For some reason the voice and mannerisms of a bleached blonde valley girl just don't work well on her.

I know that probably comes off way wrong, but for some reason that always bugged me.

Quite a few British comedians mentioned, but I love some other British comedians that others don't like or have never heard of.

One I respect but don't get at all is the Tyler Perry empire. It must be funny to be so successful right? The guy runs his own movie and TV studios now just cranking content out.

Mrs Bslim finds her hilarious. When her eponymous show was a thing I was forced to watch it. I noticed that she managed to make herself the character that ALL the hot guys went after like dogs in heat. Looked to me like some weird Lena Dunham type overcompensating  bullshiat going on with her.

Like how Kevin James snagged Leah Remini on King of Queens?

Or like how Kevin James snagged Leah Remini again after killing his S1 wife in Kevin Can Wait?

Me, too. He's too self consciously over the top and mainly gets his laughs by portraying dumb people being dumb. It's tedious, not witty.

Adam Sandler is another guy I've always kind of hated.

Same. I don't know why. Ferrell can crack me up in damn near anything and I love Zach's Between Two Ferns.

Although not even Galifianakis could save the Hangover sequels.

Yup pretty much. And while on the subject, I can't stand Kevin James either or Jim Belushi.

I don't see it as the worst crime in the world, of course I've never been forced to watch her.

Funny enough, I think there's only been one time in history that they've been credited as 'Mr. and Mrs. Tom Arnold'

That would be on Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare!

Chris Rock. I used to enjoy his comedy. Then, when Nicole Simpson was murdered, he did his long schtick about how reasonable it was to feel homicidal rage at your ex for crimes like dating someone else and getting alimony or child support. His image, with the disgusting phrase (I paraphrase) "I don't agree, but I understand," has become a meme. I do get that comedians are edgy and say shocking things, but to empathize with a murderer about the reasons that way too many women are murdered...nah, just too much for me.

I can acknowledge Jerry Seinfeld's success and his contributions to our shared culture, but...I just don't like his brand of comedy. I understand the style, but it's just not my thing.

Woody Harrelson...I dislike like him intensely..His father murdered a Federal Judge over a case he was
part of. Ol' Woody he's been trying to use his fame and money to get him released..

I don't care for Jerry Seinfeld..I didn't like Seinfeld (the show)..He might be a decent guy, but his "comedy"
isn't as urbane or clever as he thinks it is...

George Cloony may be one of the nicest guys in the world..But for god sake he's no actor..
He has one character, and that character is George Cloony...That's it...As a person, I respect his
loyalty to his friends and co-workers..That goes a long way to make up for lack of any actual acting skill..

He is a very funny guy, but he definitely has said things that rubbed me the wrong way. I think he once said something to the effect that it was effeminate for a man to use hand lotion. I don't know why that turned me off so much. His impression of John Bolton nearly killed me.

Same here. Can't stand him. He was involved in a radio show with another famous Brit Jonathan Ross where they ended up live on national radio phoning Andrew Sachs (played Manuel in Fawlty Towers) and getting his answerphone decided to sing "I f*cked your granddaughter!" to the machine, which Brand had actually done.

He's also criticised the lack of affordable housing in London, while owning a huge apartment that takes up the space of half a dozen affordable flats.

Also James Corden.

Ken Jeong is very funny, but it turns me off that he's a doctor. He is definitely the funniest doctor in American history. Doctors are the least funny people in America, I think it's because everybody laughs politely at their terrible jokes.

You are taking a comedy routine way too literally. I don't know Chris Rock very well, but I'm pretty damn sure he doesn't condone murder. Comedy is hard, and to do well you have to push the envelope. It's completely unfair to not give him the benefit of the doubt, about something that grave.

Comedians:

Nick DiPaulo is funny, but I don't like him. He makes me laugh if I open my mind. But then I go back to knowing he's wrong. But comedians have license to hyperbole and I assume he's mostly just trying to joke about stuff.

Jeff Foxworthy...I don't think I'd find his stuff funny now, but he hit on a thing at the right time.

Jeff Dunham...I never really found him funny, but it's undeniable that he made lots of people laugh. Not just a few, he captured a large share of the Big Comedian economy. But I can't stand him.

Actors:

Tom Cruise makes a lot of people laugh. The ire he gets on the internet is not indicative of what a majority of people think of him. He's funny by comedian standards, but his antics make too many people laugh. I do respect him for his stunt work.

Tim Allen in his day was funny. I can't stand him now. Politics probably play into that because either he's doing it for comedy and legitimizing wrong thinking or he actually believes it which also legitimizes wrong thinking

Robert DeNiro...OK...when he did whatever the Meet the Fockers franchise, he was meant to be funny. And in some ways he was. But what always irked me was that it was supposed to just be considered funny because he was such a great actor. That's when I started thinking he was not such a great actor. He was just really good in those gangster roles he used to play. I mean, his acting was fine, but he was just doing his gangster character, but with funny lines. Again...I call him funny because so many people found it funny. I just didn't see it that way.

I won't say I can't stand him (per subby's rules), but he doesn't make me laugh. Maybe a few SNL sketches he made me laugh, but once it was pointed out how often he laughs at himself I was out.

Although...if he was just a guy at my bbq, yes, he'd be funny. But not professionally.
