Comedy artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good comedy bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top comedy bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Comedy groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all comedy bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest comedy bands of all time, since the most famous comedy artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best comedy music.

You can click on the comedy band names to see more information about that particular notable comedy group. If they're near the top of the best comedy artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top comedy bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the comedy band names themselves.

List is made up of a variety of artists, including Bill Cosby and Woody Allen. Upvoting your favorites gets them to rise to the top of the list. Which is the better choice for the top of this list Bette Midler or Billy Connolly?

All important, significant and iconic names in comedy music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new comedy bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of comedy, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into comedy music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good comedy bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent comedy bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best comedy bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest comedy musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular comedy bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

After you've voted for the best ones, share this on Facebook, Twitter and more to get your network's input. (161 items)
