Re: Most Overrated & Unfunny Classic TV Comedians of All Time
Jonathan Winters taught Robin Williams much of what he knew about comedy. Most of comedy of the 50s and 60s doesn't translate well to today. Winters' voices and characters laid the groundwork for many you probably still feel are relevant, or probably haven't heard of. But whatever. I suppose Lenny Bruce is unfunny as well...

Harvey Keitel was obviously not a stand up. (Hopefully you're trolling)

Tim Conway is a genius improv...

You guys are kidding right.

You guys in the tank for Sinbad or Ghallager?

Adam Sandler starred in 3 of the greatest movies of world cinema, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore and Waterboy.

I would nominate George Carlin, Hicks, and Seinfeld as some of the worst of all time.

If you lived "in the old days" as I did, you would have appreciated their humor. Times have changed, and for some reason, what was really funny then isn't funny anymore. We laughed like hell at the TV show, "Laugh In," and "I Love Lucy." I would not find them funny now.

Strange.

One of the Smothers Brothers looked a lot like Carson. Makes you wonder.

And yeah, Dean Martin sucked ass.

So did Sinatra. And Davis Jr. Whats up that?

Guess they were the Jay-Z, Justin Biebers and Drakes of their day.

Victor Borge was a talented musician.

Some of the other personalities were probably promoted not to bring humor, but to further some social / political agenda.
