    Going back some time, I thought Bill Murray was not funny...but eventually I got it...and then he was in some great movies. I'm not getting her. I feel like she's highly over-promoted.

    Sure she is funny, inside amy shumer was funny. but she's also benefitting from alot of pub and hype because she's an outspoken advocate of certain things. And, i think your thread is probably going to end up locked.

    I'm going with no but looking back I think the only comedian that made me actually laugh was Dice.

    Add Melissa McCarthy and Jack Black to that category.

    These two I enjoy as bit players but annoy the crap out of me in lead roles

    That's not funny!
    :)

    I think she's hit/miss. Some of her stuff is hilarious, other stuff...not so much.

    I think her show is hilarious but that Judd Apatow movie she did was absolute garbage.

    Everyone has a different take of what they find funny. If she was not, she would not be where she is. In every joke there is a dick, and in every dick, there is a joke.

    Her standup works and kills me, but I don't like her doing anything else...

    Ms 4 am, if she was lucky...funny? Eh? Female Dice-ish? More gut/ter level humor and less thought provoking. I wouldn't pay to go see her

    I find some, not all, is actually funny... I do agree with Jamalot about the publicity and hype and.... it certainly doesn't hurt when your uncle is one of the most powerful democrats in Washington.

    Cheers,

    I don't find her funny,...as a standup. I always get the sense that she's trying too hard to be shocking and/or over the top. Comes off forced.

    She's a lot better in the Bud Lite and Target commercials. Vanilla writing, in the box stuff,...

    I imagine that depends on your politics.

    Comedy is subjective so I'm not answering the OPs poll.

    I enjoy her standup work but I would not count her as one of my favorites. I liked her sketch show but there are a lot more people involved with that.

    A few summers back I had way too much to drink and caught one of her shows on a cable channel. I thought she was super hot and was fixated on her for an hour. I sobered up Google her and puked and not from the liquor. That part came up earlier in the morning. Amazing how liquor changes your perception of what hot it.

    Yes, definitely funny.

    Like all comedians, some hits and misses. Think of Pryor. He had some stinkers amid his genius.
