The 20 Least Funny ‘Comedic Relief’ Characters of All Time

Here in the post-grimdark era, every franchise needs comic relief. When shit gets too real, a donkey with Eddie Murphy’s voice or a kid whose name is British for “fatass” is trotted out to soothe our anxious little brains. (Although sometimes that kid’s name becomes synonymous with “glow up,” so suck it, Rowling.)

But it’s a thin line between “tension-deflating” and “annoying,” and so many screenwriters just aren’t nimble enough to walk it. Their comic relief barges in at the wrong time, too often, or just in the form of Dave Coulier. That’s why, when Redditor DespicableDogfucker took time out of what is no doubt their busy schedule to ask r/AskReddit, “Who is the least funny comedy relief character in any movie, TV show, or book?” Reddit had some bones to pick. Specifically, funny bones.
