Science-fiction movies have a long history of showcasing funny characters. Whether these movies are hilarious unintentionally, or because a movie is self-aware enough to include some sort of comedic relief, science-fiction can sometimes be the perfect genre for when you’re looking for a good laugh.
Which sci-fi character do you think is funniest? William Shatner was one of the first actors to successfully blend sci-fi and comedy in his classic role as James T. Kirk in Star Trek, but Dark Helmet (played by Rick Moranis) may have taken the laughs a step further in Spaceballs. Jeff Goldblum has made meme history with his role as Ian Malcolm in the Jurassic Park series, and Bill Murray has played multiple funny sci-fi characters throughout his career.
