“Inappropriate behavior makes me laugh. Yelling at people for no reason in a public place. Yet I don’t think that I am such a fan of the Jackass-brand of inappropriate behavior. I prefer clever inappropriate behavior, where you don’t necessarily wound yourself.” – Will Ferrell
Whether he’s starring as the outrageous Ron Burgundy in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy or Buddy or the kind-spirited but slightly confused title character of Elf, actor and comedian Will Ferrell definitely knows how to get any audience roaring with uncontrollable laughter.
While it’s safe to say that certain elements of Will Ferrell’s sense of humor may have somewhat of an acquired taste – a handful of his jokes walk the fine line between comedy and vulgarity – there’s no doubt that he knows how to crack a smile in a number of different ways. From his time as a regular cast member on “Saturday Night Live” to his portrayals of outlandish characters like Chazz Michael Michaels in Blades of Glory and Jackie Moon in Semi-Pro, Ferrell’s raunchy one-liners (and occasional ridiculous outfits) always leaves movie-watchers giggling. The versatile comedian even had a stint on Broadway portraying former President George W. Bush.
Today happens the funnyman’s 46th birthday, and to honor it, we have collected a handful of hilarious images that feature some of his greatest moments from past films. We hope this dose of Will Ferrell humor is enough to tide you over until the next installment of Anchorman hits theaters!
