    Mine : Alistair Sim for such gems as:-
    The Green Man*
    Laughter in Paradise
    The Belles of St Trinian's
    School for Scoundrels
    The Happiest Days of Your Life

    * This contains my favourite film quote too:-
    "By heavens, I'd thrash the life out of you if I didn't have to read the nine o'clock news!"

    Not a comedy actor per se but the funniest performance I have seen is Johny Depp as Jack Sparrow
  3. Elmer Fudd

    Elmer Fudd Miserable Old Bar Steward

    Agree with Alistair Sim.

    Slightly OT as not a favourite actor but all the Ealing Studios comedy films, the old uns are the good uns.

    Anyone who maes me laugh while acting! Almost all the above, in fact. Can I add Ronnie Barker, Sid James (for his laugh) and Harry H Corbett? (not the sooty fella, that was just Harry Corbett: incidentally, read some disturbing news about the origins of Sooty the puppet! :blush:

    I think Ronnie Barker was the best comedy actor, but I'm not saying he was my favourite - though he runs pretty close.

    My wife sometimes insists that my favourite ought to be Richard Wilson, for very good reasons, but I don't believe it...

    Alistair Simm or Will Hay. Going back a long way now.
