Awkward TV Characters We Can't Help But Love

List Rules
Vote up your favorite awkward, offbeat, or unusual characters.

Let's take a few minutes to give a shoutout to all the awkward people out there. While some characters on TV are all about being outgoing, these characters tend to constantly find themselves in uncomfortable situations. Whether they’re introverts, quiet, or simply unaware of social norms, they’re known for always saying the wrong thing at the wrong time.

Ross Geller from Friends probably quickly comes to mind for an awkward character list (perhaps telling a story about how the scent is added to gas), or the hilarious Gary Walsh from Veep. But who are the best awkward TV characters? Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and Maurice Moss from the IT Crowd are also great contenders. To make things really easy, you could just look no further than the characters on Awkward - it's literally built right into the title! The cast of the MTV teen show features several socially awkward characters, but, come on, they're in high school! 

From clumsiness to social ineptitude, this list includes all of the extremely awkward characters on TV. Whether you think super smart Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory is the most awkward or believe that distinction should go to little miss Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers, make your voice heard by voting up your favorite fictional awkward characters on TV.
