In no particular order here are 5 male and 5 female comedians who are currently working today to make us laugh.
I couldn’t make a list of comedians and not put Zach Galifianakis in it. This break out star from “The Hangover” is as funny as his last name is hard to spell. This man is the king of awkward (if you’ve seen any of his stand-up you know what I mean). The man with the mind of an infant and the facial hair of a bum is definitely deserving of being recognized for his comedic talent.
Amy Poehler is best known for her time on Saturday Night Live and here co-starring role in the movie “Baby Mama“. Poehler is hilarious and is one of my favorite people to watch as a co-anchor of Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update. Amy is said to be working on a new movie in which she plays a justice serving lunch lady.
If you don’t know who Paul Rudd is then you have been living under a rock. This guy has been in so many hilarious movies in the past couple years. Some of his best know movies include The 40 Year-Old Virgin, I Love You, Man and Role Models. Paul has a great way of delivering his lines with such casualty as well as great comedic timing.
Anna Faris is what we in the biz like to call a “Double Threat” She’s got great comedic talent and is very pleasant on the eyes. She was first brought to my attention in her role as Cindy Campbell in the the Scary Movie series. You get a taste of her talent in the movie Waiting where she plays a sassy Ex-Girlfriend and you get a good look at her body in The House Bunny in her role as a ditsy Ex-Playboy Bunny.
I’m gonna be honest, I wasn’t always a fan of Tracy Morgan, but that wasn’t because of him personally it was more because I just didn’t know about him. But recently I started watching 30 Rock and I must say Tracy Morgan is friggin hilarious. He plays an over the top, mentally ill, comedic actor on a sketch comedy show. Every line he delivers I ended up laughing out loud.
You gotta love Leslie Mann in her roles in Big Daddy, The 40 Year Old Virgin, and Knocked Up. You gotta admit that she’s not bad looking either. Leslie has joined up once again with past Cable Guy co-star Jim Carrey for a movie called I Love You Phillip Morris.
I think it is safe to say that Seth Rogen got his big break with the instant stoner classic Pineapple Express. This Canadian born comedian started out on a show called Freaks and Geeks which didn’t last too long. Seth went on to be a supporting role in The 40 Year Old Virgin and he co-wrote the screen play for the hilarious Superbad starring Jonah Hill and Michael Cera.
Yet another beautiful female comedian, Elizabeth Banks is hilarious in her role as a sex crazed bookstore clerk in The 40 Year Old Virgin. She’s not over the top sexy but she’s got the subtle humble cuteness to her. She’s got the ability to make you laugh as well as make you fall for her. This is true in her roles in Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Role Models.
This man is a comedic veteran and genius. He can do no wrong in my eyes. Will Ferrell has the ability to make the most serious moments of life into a joke and this can’t be any more true about his role as Chazz Reinhold in Wedding Crashers. Will is a Saturday Night Live Veteran known for his infamous sketches where he plays Alex Trebek in a constantly battle with Sean Connery. You may also know Will from such titles as Step Brothers, Semi-Pro, Blades of Glory, Anchorman, and many more.
Last but certainly not least we’ve got Kristen Wiig. I think I like Kristen best on Saturday Night Live as one of her many quirky characters. She just seems to be funnier in a “Sketch Comedy” environment. Not to say that her roles in Knocked Up, Adventureland, and Extract weren’t funny, she is just one of those comedians that fits better on a sketch comedy show.
