In all of entertainment who do you feel is the worst?

Personally I think its a toss up between one of the rapper/singer turned actors or possibly 75% of current pop artists.

Bob Saget is funny as hell. His standup routines are great- after hearing them, you'd never think he was on Full House or Funniest Home Videos.


Personally I can't stand Keanu Reeves or Will Smith. Very very difficult for me to watch anything they are in.

You probably got me there -- that's my only exposure to Bob Saget. He was painful to watch in America's Funniest Home Videos.

Yeh, Bob Saget is certainly "watered down" for primetime viewing. I had to do a double take the first time I heard him do stand up on an HBO comedy special. I wasn't used to hearing the Dad from Full House drop the F-Bomb :)

Tom Green, Eminem, Howard Stern, all those bastard Baldwin brothers, George Micheal, Tom Cruise (too bad on these last two- I've really enjoyed their work in the past, except for their recent political remarks), Steve Earle, System of a Down... the list goes on. Frankly, I don't like the majority of the entertainment industry's stars anyway.

Yeah...he was totally miscast in Full House. AFHM had it's moments (his adlibs during the clips were pretty funny), but his standup is hilarious! Another really funny guy that got a bum rap is Dave Coulier. I split a gut watching his "grandpa goes fishing" routine.

Anyway, Sinbad, Tom Arnold, and Chris Rock all make me cringe. Tom Green is probably the top of my "most hated" list. Why is that guy famous???? (Well...actually, I don't think he is anymore. We'll probably see him on Hollywood Squares shortly).

You know, if I did the material in that show and changed all times he said "white people" to "black people", I'd be sued, arrested, mobed, shot at, and they would probably be riots in some major cities. I just don't like ethnic comedians that do reverse racist material. Plus, his voice is like scraping your nails down a chalkboard :disgust:

Tom Arnold? He's like one of the greatest "minor role" actors in Hollywood at the moment. His small roles in True Lies, Austin Powers, and Exit Wounds were excellent!

He's great in small doses.

He makes fun of everyone. Have you ever seen/heard his stuff? Most of his routine is about black people.
