Funny: Tom Hanks
  • Many of his early roles were guest spots on sitcoms where he demonstrated a knack for physical comedy that would put comedians known for such humor to shame. As demonstrated in this clip where he fights the one and only Fonzie.
  • His appearance on Saturday Night Live where he played a completely moronic version of himself on Celebrity Jeopardy is one of the all-time funniest moments in the sketch's history.
    • Not to mention his actual appearances as a host on SNL (including the time where he got to be the one to coin the phrase "Five Timers' Club"). Some clips include the "Tenth Reunion" sketch with Jon Lovitz.
  • His appearance in a clip of Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he appears as an overbearing father to his young fictional "daughter" in a parody of Honey Boo Boo and her mother.
  • Declaring at a presentation for Cloud Atlas that his favorite part was getting to "throw a critic off a balcony to his horrible crushing death," while laughing maniacally.
