Get ready to feel the heat as we rank the most hilarious comics to ever test their mettle on Hot Ones. The insanely popular YouTube series pits guests among host Sean Evans as they talk about life, work, and how much they regret agreeing to come on the show while eating chicken wings with progressively hotter sauces.

Sure, celebrities putting themselves through hell eating spicy foods is an entertaining way to spend time, but the show really turns up the heat when some of the world’s funniest comics decide to make an appearance. You could say it's the only show where a comedian's hot take isn't the spiciest thing on screen! From Jim Gaffigan and Eric Andre to Bill Burr and Kevin Hart, these comics may know how to roast an audience, but are they able to handle the heat? 

Vote for who you think is the funniest comedian on Hot Ones and take joy in the fact that you don't have to go through this just to plug your next comedy special.
