By out & out I don't mean the brilliance of Network-(comedy drama) Cuckoo's Nest" Terms of Endearment" "Sunset Blvd" or "The Apartment" they border on drama & comedy s all know Like life itself, but from The Marx Bros, Fields, Three Stooges, A &C, Stan & Ollie-(NOTE Many may hate for this though Stan & Ollie were all-time ultimate screen due, but over 31yrs I think the both Ralph Kramer & Art Cay from TV's legendary tv show "The Honeymooners" don't qualify here & by the way Gleason's idols most of his life were Ollie & Jack 0akie & even Chaplin bordered his works between the lines, except for maybe his A #1 Modern Times-(last viewing of his Little Tramp & he went Welles even further, Orson starred, wrote-(though Pauline Kael begs to different)directed & produced. Charles did him 1 further in composing his own music i.e. Smile & who can left out the tragic Buster Keaton.

 

 

So please cast your candidates' for the funniest to date I know it won't be Chris Tucker or Pauly Shore though, I hope. & always forget his name, the obvious limey that did a lousy Arthur remake?

EW.com) (2000 readers poll-(over 2,000 voted)(NOTE: Ever notice after AFI had it's mammoth '98 poll & tv special, all jumped on the wagon.
