Laurel & Hardy for number one! They are the unbeatable kings of comedy.

This has potential to be a great list but it needs some SERIOUS work. I may attempt to come up with my own version.

And how in the HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELL is Charlie Chaplin not on this list? And NOT number 1? No Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd or Fatty Arbuckle either?

No love for the silent era Lew? I mean wtf.

for some reason they were on a separate list.


and yet again, just as the lyricists list and the actresses list, this was initially a huge failure from the teenage pave. thankfully Lew did a lot of work to make it better. but yeah it still has some work to do.

Of course Keaton should only be here for historical significance, he was a talentless hack.
