Him So Funny — And Cute! Hollywood’s Sexiest Funny Men
If it wasn’t enough that these incredible men make us laugh our booties off, they also happen to be incredibly attractive. We never stood a chance against their charisma and charm, which is why we had no other choice than to honor these comic cuties. So as summer heats up, we look at 14 handsome funnymen who’ll have us bowled over with laughter in the days, weeks and months to come.
No one has ever justified the idea that great things come in small packages quite like Kevin Hart. The Philly native made the rounds on the amateur comedy circuit before hitting it big with feature film roles in “Think Like A Man,” “Ride Along” and “About Last Night,” as well as his successful comedy specials. Though he may be holding it down at just 5-foot-4, he’s certainly enough man for us (provided he keeps those light-skin, dark-skin jokes under wraps).
Given just how incredibly attractive Channing Tatum is, it’s easy to understand why his comedic chops might be somewhat overlooked. But ever since this luscious leading man jumped into comedy with “21 Jump Street,” he has been making us laugh, just as much as he’s been making us sweat (in a good way). His irreverence and ability to take on ridiculous roles (might we direct you to “This Is The End”) has made Tatum a force to be reckoned with in comedy.
While his turn in films such as “Ray” and “Django Unchained” have solidified Jamie Foxx’s status as a dramatic actor, we still remember the days when he held it down on “In Living Color” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.” A versatile and incredible talent, Foxx has been able to dominate the worlds of comedy, drama and music without batting an eyelash — all while keeping his distinct level of sexy up to par. We applaud you, Jamie Foxx, for being one of Hollywood’s sexiest and funniest.
Who would have thought that O’Shea Jackson, better known as Ice Cube, would have risen up the comedy ranks to be one of our favorite funnymen. Sure, his looks might not be up to Jamie Foxx or Channing Tatum status, but it’s his swagger, personality and comedic bite that gets us just a little weak in the knees. And with parts in great films like “21 Jump Street” and “Ride Along,” we expect to keep seeing big things from Ice.
Don’t judge us. While Craig Robinson didn’t make the ladies swoon during his run on “The Office,” we’d be lying if we said we didn’t get a little hot and bothered as he crooned “Take Yo Panties Off” in “This is the End.”
The first SNL-er to make our list, Jay Pharoah has been making us laugh uncontrollably since joining the legendary cast in 2010. A master impressionist, Pharoah has parodied such stars as Jay-Z, Kanye West, Denzel Washington and Eddie Murphy, as well as President Barack Obama. With his star still on the rise, we expect the next few years to have big things in store for this comedic cutie.
Andy Samberg isn’t stopping traffic with his looks, but we’d only be fooling ourselves to say that we weren’t completely smitten with the former SNL-er and current “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star. As one part of The Lonely Island, Samberg amazed with not only his comedic timing, but his ridiculous musical abilities. Though he’s officially off the market, we’re still down for fantasizing about this funnyman.
No hot comedian list would ever be complete without the seemingly ageless, always adorable Paul Rudd. Whether we’re talking about his cult fame as Cher’s love interest in “Clueless,” or we’re more focused on his turns in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” or “Anchorman,” one thing has remained constant: Paul Rudd’s quirky, accessible, and charisma-laden brand of adorable. And don’t even get us started on his lip-sync battle with our next cutie comic …
We always knew that Jimmy Fallon had talent. Since his days on the SNL set, Fallon had a command of the stage and a mastery over what would make us laugh. But it wasn’t until he was given one of television’s most prized gigs, “The Tonight Show,” that he was really able to spread his wings and show us what he could do. With a host of celebrity friends, Fallon has transformed what was a stale talk show format (Sorry, Mr. Leno) into must-watch television.
Now, we’ll admit, that this selection could feel like a throwback to 1998, but we stand by our selection of Wayne Brady. Not only did he appear on one of television’s most hilarious and well-executed improvisation shows (the original “Whose Line Is It Anyway”), but he was also front and center in one of the most amazing sketches we’ve ever seen. We’re pretty sure you know what we’re talking about, but in case you don’t, allow us to show you:
Again, maybe we’re going a little old school here, but as an Original King of Comedy, D.L. Hughley brings some sophistication to our attractive comedian list. While he may not be as visible as he was during the days of his UPN hit “The Hughleys,” this comedy hottie still can make us crack a smile — when he’s not sputtering things that are utterly ridiculous.
Talk about a career transformation. To think that Chris Hardwick was just holding back horny men on the set of “Singled Out” back in the 90s, while today he is holding down gigs as host of Comedy Central’s “@midnight” and AMC’s “Talking Dead,” as well as contributing his voice to the Nickelodeon series “Sanjay and Craig.” While his brand of humor is definitely of the dryer variety, his sarcasm and I-don’t-give-a-you-know-what attitude strikes the right note for us.
Aziz Ansari’s mix of complete and utter swagger with quirkiness has certainly won us over these last few years. With his starring role as Tom on “Parks and Rec,” Ansari has slowly made his way to the top of the comedy game after years on the stand-up circuit. Though we’re still waiting for his big screen breakout (his movies haven’t exactly dominated the box office), we would be remiss to not include this cutie on our list.
Jason Sudeikis is like a fine wine. He seems to just be getting better with age (on all fronts). While we have always had our eye on the ex-SNL funnyman, it wasn’t until turns in “Horrible Bosses” and “We’re the Millers” that we realized just how funny and just how sexy this Kansas-bred boy is. And being the stunning Olivia Wilde’s baby daddy and fiancee certainly doesn’t hurt.
