IMO, it has to be Colt Cabana. He is one of the few to have ever made a living off of being a comedy wrestler, and of those, Cabana is one of the few who can both be funny by doing goofy things (think: Delirious, Doink, or Stalker Ichikawa) and be funny while actually wrestling a match (Steen, Kikutaru, Santino)

For me the funniest is Maximo

but on American television, i'd go for Cabana too. Santino is really funny, but not as a wrestler, mostly as a skit guy.

honorable mention to Kenny Omega, he cracks me up...

I loved seeing Vin Gerard put him in an STF: Stepover Tail-hold- facelock.

Some others that deserve mentioning:

Pinkie Sanchez
Chuck Taylor
Delirious
Icarus (underrated)
Nate Webb
Mad Man Pondo
Greg Excellent
Adam Cole (when he wants to be funny)

Taylor is hilarious, although bringing him up also makes me bring up LuFisto. During their CZW (which consisted of a lot of LuFi chopping Taylor, causing him to scream like a little girl), after near fall, Taylor put his arm around the ref's shoulder, and walker him over to the corner, then said "Women are inferior. If we work together, we can convince her that it was three." Absolute genius! And the grenades!

LuFi herself is also funny, especially on promos. I will never get over constantly referring to Jennifer Blake as "crazy nutcase girl."

I have never seen Cole be funny, but I have heard him on commentary, and I have no doubt that he could become the next Chuck Taylor.

I'm so lost in this convo; lol

La Parka, Disco, Santino, Norman Smiley, Doink, & Alex Wright have cracked me up more than anyone else EVER!

but Delirious, Cabana, Kikutaro (I think thats how you spell it; Ebessan, maybe), El Generico, and El Hijo Del Ice Cream (based soley upon the sprinkles-as-thumbtacks thing I saw; AWESOME!) are the best!

If I had to pick the best comedy wrestler a lot of names pop up Colt, Generico, Delirious, and Chuck Taylor. But my favorite has to be the one and only LARRY SWEENEY

LOS ICE CREAMS! THEY ARE HILARIOUS!

They returned at Clutch of Doom and they were only in the match for like a minute but they were so hilarious.

At Man Up, Delirious was tapping on the guardrail while Sydal was down on the outside and Sweeney turns to the referee and shouts "ILLEGAL NOISE CREATION! DISQUALIFY HIM!" GENIUS!

I've always had a soft spot for The Blue Meanie. He was so cheesy, so over the top, I couldn't help but laugh.

Of all the ECW guys, Nova was prolly the most underrated, too; he had some very innovative offense.

He could have been VERY successful as Simon Dean in the WWE as well if they would have let him continue with the Simon System stuff. I could imagine a VERY hilarious altercation between Dean and Santino....
