    Mine is Kosmo Kramer from Seinfeld. I think he would be such a cool roommate, you would never be bored! But you would need to have polished wooden floors, because if he couldn't slide through doors or fall over, it's half the fun gone.

    I just started watching seinfeld about 2 months ago or so, and I would have to agree: Kramer is awesome!

    LOL, I don't think so, the only other characters that may come close for me are bit-characters in Seinfeld as well. Newman and Jackie Chiles.

    I have seen some bloopers from the earlier series, it is funny how everyone else is laughing and he just stays serious. Some of the bloopers are a scream, and the laughter is just infectious. I remember just laughing at them laughing and wondering why I was!

    Possibly Kramer's uncle: Reverend Jim Ignatowski (Taxi).

    I had the same reaction. Once described Kramer as the comic descendent of Jim on Taxi, but the person I was talking to didn't see it.

    They have eyes but they do not see.

    One of my favorite lines as Jim was talking to Alex in the men's lavatory, describing the time he hit rock bottom. "It was in a place just like this one. Except there were no sinks. No toilet stalls. No walls. Just sand, as far as the eye can see..."

    Jim Halbert from the US version of The Office. I would love to help him think of pranks to play on Dwight.

    I like Dan Scott from One Tree Hill.

    Haven't been watching the third season much, but I have watched all of 1st and 2nd season. I normally just wait for the DVD's.

    He owns everyone. It's awesome.

    Really, though, there are huge numbers of great sitcom characters that rival Kramer. Woody, on Cheers, had some sublime moments. And there was great stuff by Norm and Cliff Claeven.

    Just about every character on Friends took over at some point and became the comic star of an episode. I always especially liked Joey and Phoebe and Chandler, and Monica and Rachael and Ross.

    Raymond, his parents and brother are always great, and for a while I was addicted to King of Queens.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting someone important, though.

    Joey was the best hands down in my opinion.

    I also liked the spin off show he had, but I stopped watching it just like I do with every show. I loved it though. I think it's cancelled now though.
