The racecar movie was one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen. 

Cars 2?

Days of Thunder?

I officially hate my list now. I don't know what I was thinking. I love Amy Poehler so much. From Upright Citizens Brigade to SNL to Parks to movies, she's a comedy hero.

I've brought shame on myself and my entire family.

I don't actually think she's that funny. I mean, she has some talent, sure, but I'm almost never laughing at her when I watch that show.

to be fair, we have a hard time imagining you laughing at anything. :-\

I picture Imrahil angrily waving a rolled up newspaper at things.  Cereal boxes, doorbells, clouds, batteries, newspapers, bowls of fruit, scissors and other odds and ends.

Albert Brooks is my comedy hero! Glad he made the list -- since it took at least 26 points to make it on here I was scared I was the only one who would have included him and he would have been squeezed off. His movies I adore (Defending Your Life, Modern Romance, and Lost in America are all classics, and his others all have their moments), his comedy records, especially A Star is Bought are fantastic, and his bits he used to do on the Tonight Show were always amazing.

Fred Willard is also one of my faves and is on my list -- we did a Fernwood Reunion with him and Martin Mull a few years ago at the fest, and they took to the stage in character and it was amazing. After the show, Mull teared up a bit and told me "I don't do this anymore, I'm a painter now. It's like we haven't missed a beat and it's been many years since we've been onstage together." (Not an exact quote, but that was the gist of it).

Christopher Guest is king of the mockumentary. I auditioned for him last year (he was directing a Cheez-It commercial that I was called back for) and I nearly lost my shit going into that room! Waiting for Guffman is one of my top ten favorite movie evers. Long live Corky St. Clair!

Awww. This is beautiful and sad. I love them both (Fred a lot more, though).

She does get laughs out of me on Parks, but the main reason I should've included her is how much she cracked me up in Upright Citizens Brigade and SNL. Some of her sketch stuff is hilarious.

Albert Brooks

#12 on my list. If anyone is at all a fan of Brooks, Grodin, or mockumentaries, they really need to check out the movie Real Life. Absolutely hilarious and some of Brooks' and Grodin's funniest work. Easily one of my favorite comedies, and eerily prophetic in the context of the reality TV craze.

Bruce McCulloch


My thoughts:
Like I said before, I love the Kids and they all did great work on that show and in Brain Candy.

The Wiki:

McCulloch is best known for his work as a member of The Kids in the Hall, a popular Canadian comedy troupe, and as a writer for Saturday Night Live.

Bob Newhart


My thoughts:
Another legend.  His televison show and other comic works are just genius and just so deadpan.  I think if you look up deadpan in the comedy dictionary it says See: Bob  Newhart.

The Wiki:
George Robert "Bob" Newhart (born September 5, 1929), is an American stand-up comedian and actor. Noted for his deadpan and slightly stammering delivery, Newhart came to prominence in the 1960s when his album of comedic monologues The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart was a worldwide bestseller and reached #1 on the Billboard pop music charts—it remains the 20th best-selling comedy album in history. The follow-up album, The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back! was also a massive success, and both albums held the Billboard #1 and #2 spots simultaneously, a feat unequaled until the 1991 release of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II by hard rock band Guns N' Roses.

Newhart later went into acting, starring in two long-running and prize-winning situation comedies, first as psychologist Dr. Robert "Bob" Hartley on the 1970s sitcom The Bob Newhart Show and then as innkeeper Dick Loudon on the 1980s sitcom Newhart. He also had a third, short-lived sitcom in the nineties titled Bob. Newhart also appeared in film roles such as Major Major in Catch-22, and Papa Elf in Elf. He provided the voice of Bernard in the Walt Disney animated films The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under. One of his most recent roles is the library head Judson in The Librarian. In 2011, Newhart appeared in the film Horrible Bosses.

Bruce McCulloch

McCulloch is my least favorite Kid. I find a lot of his characters unfunny; even verging on annoying. Perhaps it's the high caliber of his sketch mates that makes him seem unfunny by comparison.

The Terrier Song is probably my favorite McCulloch bit.

Stephen Fry


My thoughts:
Need to see more of his work, but I love QI.

The Wiki:
Stephen John Fry (born 24 August 1957) is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television presenter, film director, and a director of Norwich City Football Club.

After a troubled childhood and adolescence, during which he was expelled from a number of schools and eventually spent three months in prison for credit card fraud, he was able to secure a place at Queens' College, Cambridge, where he studied English Literature.

He first came to public attention in the 1981 Cambridge Footlights Revue presentation "The Cellar Tapes", which also included Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson and Tony Slattery. With Hugh Laurie, as the comedy double act Fry and Laurie, he co-wrote and co-starred in A Bit of Fry & Laurie, and took the role of Jeeves (with Laurie playing Wooster) in Jeeves and Wooster.

As an actor, Fry played the lead in the film Wilde, was Melchett in the BBC television series Blackadder, starred as the title character Peter Kingdom in the ITV series Kingdom, has a recurring guest role as Dr. Gordon Wyatt on the Fox crime series Bones and appeared as rogue TV host Gordon Deitrich in the dystopian thriller V for Vendetta. He has also written and presented several documentary series including the 2008 television series Stephen Fry in America, which saw him travelling across all 50 US states. Since 2003 he has been the host of the quiz show QI.

As well as his work in television, Fry has contributed columns and articles for newspapers and magazines, and has written four novels and two volumes of autobiography, Moab Is My Washpot and The Fry Chronicles. He also appears frequently on BBC Radio 4, starring in the comedy series Absolute Power, being a frequent guest on panel games such as Just a Minute, and acting as chairman for I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, where he was one of a trio of hosts who succeeded the late Humphrey Lyttelton. Fry is also known in the UK for his audiobook recordings, particularly as reader for all seven Harry Potter novels.

Paul Rudd


My thoughts:
Just made my list at #25.  One of the funniest comic actors of this era.  Will see any comedy with him in it, cause he is that good.  One of the few actors I can say that about.

The Wiki:
Paul Stephen Rudd (born April 6, 1969) is an American actor, comedian and screenwriter. He has primarily appeared in comedies, and is known for his roles in the films Clueless, Wet Hot American Summer, Anchorman, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Dinner for Schmucks, The Object of My Affection, Role Models, I Love You, Man, and Our Idiot Brother. In television, he appeared on the NBC sitcom Friends, playing Mike Hannigan, Phoebe Buffay's boyfriend and later husband, and is commonly featured on the Tim and Eric show.

So far I've forgotten to include anyone from Kids in the Hall, anyone from SNL, and Bob Newhart...

I have high hopes for the ones from the show I did remember though.
