List Rules Vote these comics up if you feel they deserve to be universally hated.

Anyone who's ever tried to go up on stage knows that stand-up comedians don't have an easy job. You have to be witty, charming and most importantly funny. However there are some comics who are not any of those things, causing them to be hated by the masses. Whether it's because they're known for stealing material, they're hacks or they're just plain annoying, these comics are notorious for not being liked both in the comedy community and by the general public.

Do you hate any of the comedians on this list? A lot of people don't like Carlos Mencia after he was outed as a joke thief, but the heat has died down after all these years. People also hate on Larry the Cable Guy all the time, but what the hell is wrong with a dumb, funny redneck? Maybe it's the fact that he's not really a redneck and that his whole southern persona is completely phony.

If you've never heard Larry's catchphrase "Git er dun!" then you don't know what it means to cringe as hard as humanly possible. What's worse is that Larry the Cable Guy's whole "Redneck" appeal is a complete sham, as evidenced by the video above. Sorry, Alabama, your idol is a fraud.

Let's face it, Jeff Dunham is one of the highest paid comics in the world. The man sells out huge shows on a weekly basis, but that doesn't make him impervious to being hated on. Many fellow comedians view Dunham as a ventriloquist and not a comic, and for good reason. After all, how hard would this guy crush without his puppets? My guess is not very.
