Funny characters on screen

Here are some funny characters that tickled me pink ( or at times red in the face ) over the years.

1. Steven Martin - He never fails to bring a smile to me acting the normal day to day character eg the loser, the husband, the Dad.

2. Martin Sheen in the two spoofs - acting a Rambo and Rambo 2. But a lot of sex stuff mate !

3. Jim Carrey - sorry to say this but I only found Mask to be the funniest. As each succeeding show came along, I did not find Mr Rubber Face that funny at all.

4. That kid on `Back to the Future'. The first one. Will update once I get his name. Hilarious it was when he jumped on stage and played the guitar. I laughed so hard my friend was taken aback. Wow ! He really tickled your funny bone ! My tears flowed ... sigh.

Well.. there hasn't been any characters that followed in their trail.
I won't mentioned Chinese comedies. They are just slap stick. No style. Sorry HK producers.

The kid on 'Back to the Future'.... are you referring to Michael J Fox?

Well... since I love comedies... the guys you mentioned are all well liked by me.

As for Chinese comedians, I kind of like Hong Kong actor Stephen Chow. He never fails to make me laugh in his movies such as "Shaolin Soccer" and "Kung Fu Hustle".


Make it your challenge.... turn me ON!!

YES! That's him Michael J Fox !
It was funny 'cos his mother - in another time zone -liked him.
Ha! Ha! Ha! See the way he tried to avoid her and get his timid Dad to tackle his mother was hilarious ! Snigger now thinking about it.

I only liked Stephen Chow in the first few shows. As usual, the first few shows are the best 'cos of novelty.
Subsequently his wits ran dry. Or should I say the script went dry.

The film - was it Kung Fu Hustle ? - with the ax's scene at the start was too violent for my liking. Violence in a comedy is HK's favorite mix but it makes me sick. Confused dah.
The scene I like most was when he tried to throw a knife at the Landlady and ended stabbing himself. Then his accomplice stabbed him on the arm twice. That was a hilarious scene ! Smile ... smile ...
