    The hardest I have ever laughed is from Will Ferrell in Step Brothers. Eddie Murphy would be next in Coming to America.

    Hard choice.

    Jim carey and chris farley made me laugh the hardest.

    Leslie neilson should be on the list for sure, he'd make my top 3.

    But i had to go with bill murray in the end. He's had the most consistently funny and memorable performances.

    First thing that popped into my head was Eddie Murphy. When I saw the list, I started to question it a little, but man, that guy was in fire in the 80's.

    Bill Murray is the consistency leader.

    Mel Brooks should really be in a class by himself.

    Gene Wilder on the list but not Richard Pryor? I dont give a shit about the semis, quarters, whatever. Fuck that.

    Eddie Murphy by way of starring in Coming to America, the funniest movie of my lifetime.

    Woooooo!!!

    It’s so hard to vote because there are soooo many funny actors of old that I want to vote for for the sake of nostalgia. Like, it’s hard to ignore the genius of Chaplin and it feels sacrilege to vote for say Paul Rudd over Chaplin. But if I’m honest with myself, I’ve laughed more at a Paul Rudd movie than a Chaplin movie....

    I voted for Jim Carrey but i do think Jack Black is seriously underrated.

    Robin Williams.

    Also - how is Paul Rudd's name in consideration with these titans of comedy?

    To put into perspective Paul Rudd had more votes than Buster Keaton in the semi finals. Rudd had 4, while Keaton had 1. And so far in the finals Rudd has 3 votes among the other titans that you say, who have zero.

    So that's just how it goes in Sherdog.
