Comedy is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. Music is a close second but laughing is life to me. Growing up, I had a ton of favorites but I've narrowed the list down to 5 key influences in my comedic life.

5. Will Ferrell

Most people absolutely love him or they can't stand him. There aren't a whole lot of in-between people when it comes to Will. He's over the top, ridiculous, and his humor is just plain dumb which in my opinion is the best humor.


4. Dave Chappelle

Sketch comedy is hard to pull off and not many have even come close to the magic Dave created on his show back in the day. Everyone would be talking about his show every week at work the day after it aired. Chappelle Show WAS the conversation of the early 2000's. Dave was a game changer.


3. Will Smith

A lot of people forget about Will as a comedy actor but I've got two words, "Fresh....Prince" nuff said. He's a legend and he made some of my favorite on screen childhood memories. Will is the real deal.


2. Robin Williams


Robin Williams was easily one of the funniest people in history. Jack, Mrs. Doubtfire, Patch Adams, Bicentennial Man, Jumanji, Hook, and the list goes on and on. On screen, he could make almost anyone laugh until they cried...then make them actually cry. No only were his movies hilarious but they were deeply touching and emotional. No one could do both like he could.


1. Jim Carrey

He's Jim Carrey. The man with the rubber face. Possibly the funniest on screen actor of all time. I'm pretty sure hes not even from this planet. He's funny, he's inspirational, he's bat poop crazy.
