Out of all you posted, Arbuckle is one I never could stand.  All the rest were great.

What about CHARLEY CHASE

The RITZ BROTHERS

What can’t you stand about Arbuckle ? I’ve seen little of his work.

Stoogies are funnier. But sometimes Groucho is funnier too. Harpo is just plain weird.

I'm with DARG here Tech.   Sure, I liked the Stooges as a kid(both The 3 and The Psychedelic---  ;) ).  But once I reached puberty their antics just seemed childish to me.   ;) 

But I never seemed to outgrow the Marx Brothers, Laurel and Hardy or silents by Keaton, Lloyd, or Chaplin.

One vote for W.C. Fields. I've  always  found Field's curmudgeonally, henpecked tippler funny, especially when he rubs  up against

others not of this persuasion, which is mostly the  rest of  the world. I put him on a par with the Marx  Bros., unless he makes a birdie.

I forgot W.C.

Favorite movie is the bank dick. Very funny movie.

Yeah, The Bank Dick is my favorite too. So well composed and still funny even though I've seen it half  a dozen times.
