To me, Chris Rock might be the most heartbreaking comedian on this list, mainly because he’s consistently considered one of the top comedians of all time and uproariously funny. He’s had successful TV shows and is even kicking some ass on Broadway. But when it comes to movies, the films Rock usually takes the lead on end up not being the winners they should be.
He’s probably starred in the most movies of any comedian on this list and he definitely has successful flicks under his belt, some were even first considered failures and later gained cult status. However, Rock’s films that bombed, did so in such a glorious fashion they’ve pretty much kept him in the negative on the movie scale.
