Its a toss up between John and George for me.
John was always in your face funny. But George has this clever sly shy-ish random way of making you laugh.

Probably George and Ringo.

George was the only (ex-)Beatle who appeared in "All you need is cash", the film about The Rutles... The film was, of course, very "pythonesque"... I really think George had a good sense of humour.  :D

But surely that's because Harrison was mates with the Python crew, and his presence in a satire about the Beatles was very apt, and an excellent audience puller. It's a real push to say they included him because he was particularly funny.

Who says that they included him because he was "particularly funny"? I also don't think that he was used as an "audience puller". He surely was mates with parts of the Python crew, probably because they had a similar type of humour. To me, Harrison's appearance in "All you need is cash" showed that he had a good sense of humour. And that's all I wanted to say.

But why should anybody listen to me, since I know nothing... Anyway, I really don't know which Beatle was the funniest. But I think that George, with his dry kind of humour, was probably the wittiest. He was, IMHO, wittier than John, for example.

I thought that George could be pretty funny.

In 1999, George was assaulted in his home and seriously injured by a deranged fan.  After this unfortunate incident, George ironically commented, "Why doesn't this sort of thing ever happen to the Rolling Stones?" 

George referred to Eric Clapton as his "Husband-in-Law".

George had a wonderful sense of humor.

They all had their own sense of humor.
John, in my opinion, was the funniest :D

John was very funny since Liverpool times.

I think Ringo had some hidden humor, but John was outright the funniest to watch.

I think they all had a good sense of humor but John makes me laugh the most. He was goofy but also very clever. Of course, it probably wasn't much fun when he used that cleverness for sarcasm.

John by far for me, no question about it (although all of them have a great sense of humor). I've always thought that it would be amazing to know John personally because he's so hilarious, sarcastic, and interesting.

George for me...

He humor was very dry. That is my sense of humor too.

I think George in Anthology is hilarious.

"'I Dig a Pygmy', by Charles Hawtrey and the Deaf Aids... Phase One, in which Doris gets her oats!" - again from Let It Be, John cutting up. The 'deaf aids' is what they called their amplifiers, and Charles Hawtrey was a British actor, a real person, who had about 70 film appearances in British cinema between 1922 and 1972.

"I'd like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we've passed the audition." - spoken by John, not at the end of the studio session for "Get Back," but from the rooftop concert; Phil Spector edited it back onto the end of the "Get Back" track. And yes, that's also John at the beginning drolling, "Sweet Loretta Fart, she thought she was a cleaner, but she was a frying pan."

The thing about John is that he was so quick with his wit. And I'm having a blast reading his books. It's like learning a whole new language that is just hilarious, clever and really outrageous.

There are so many funny parts in that movie. I find something new every time I watch it! Welcome to the forums, beatlerlover00. There's a thread under "Different Conversations" where you can introduce yourself if you'd like.
