John with his fantastic sense of humour! Which never dropped below a certain decent level. A master!

It's between John and George for me. John had that smart-ass wit. George put some humor into some of his songs, e.g. 'Taxman' or 'Piggies'

Why not.
When it comes to the famous press interviews, John always strikes me as far more uneasy and self conscious than the others. I think a lot of John's reputation as the "witty" Beatle comes more from his books than anything he ever said. Impossible to quantify, but I always find George and Ringo the quickest and wittiest when it came to the spoken word.
I reckon a good example is the "rattle your jewellery." Funny on paper, but John's delivery is nervous and hesitant. But George and Ringo snap out the one liners (many of which are actually funny) with apparent ease.

^ I also really enjoy George and Ringo's sense of humor. I think George had a really funny sarcastic humor that he was really good at timing.
And Ringo always had that humor that was so spontaneous you never saw it coming, I don't even think they always saw it coming. They would all burst into laughter when he would say a great one liner. It's always great to see their expressions when that happens.  :)

John and Ringo.

That's not to say Paul and George haven't made some good jokes too. :D

I'd vote for either John or George. John's wit was more biting and goofy while George's humor was very dry. However, all the Beatles were funny people, that is partly why I love 'em so much.

Ringo

There's a reason Cynthia called Ringo the funny one/clown of the group.

They all make me laugh in different ways.

John, like everyone has said, just had such an intellegent sense of humor, but he seemed a little self-conscious about him.
Ringo was just a loveable goofball.
George had some great quips that pretty much came out of nowhere.
Paul usually makes me laugh because he often tries so hard to come off as 'serious' and 'professional', but you can tell he's not ha2ha.

But most of all, I love it when they all played off of each other.

They're all pretty funny, but George's dry wit is more to my taste.

Ringo's the funniest but George's dry, subtle jokes are great as well. Never really though of John as a very funny guy and Paul's sense of humor is downright lame. But it's cool, at least he's trying. ;D

John or Ringo. They are both funny in different ways. I like John's wit, can get a bit mean... Ringo seems to be harmless. (not that John wasn't)

I don't think of Monty Python as very subtle... they were quite over-the-top!

George did have a great dry humor that I love... but John was a total clown. To me, he was more Pythonesque... very intelligent and very silly at the same time.

I can't really choose just one!
They all had different senses of humor
Ringo was funny naturally I guess, but John for example, always makes me laugh with his sarcasm  ;D
