I like "Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!" by Downtown. Hitoshi Matsumoto and Masatoshi Hamada are the funniest people on TV.

Downtown's "Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!" is my favorite show. Because it's on after the watershed, the humor is really cutting-edge.

I really like Sanma Akashiya. He speaks in a way that draws the viewer in and lends itself to the perfect delivery of jokes.

I really like "Tantei! Knight Scoop." It's set in a detective agency and all of their investigations are meaningless. It's been on for more than a decade.

I think Beat Takeshi is the funniest man on Japanese television. His demeanor is very cool and his biting sarcasm can be hilarious.
