Every show needs a resident
goofball, it’s just the laws of television. No two other characters fit this
archetype better than Ross Geller of Friends and Charles Boyle of Brooklyn
Ross’ obsession with
dinosaurs paired with the constantly awkward situations he gets himself into lead to
some of the funniest moments on friends – who could forget the tanning incident
or when he sported the leather pants? Ross became the unsung hero of Friends, especially
towards the later series where he grows from annoying loser into arguably the
funniest situational character within the show.
Boyle is simply Boyle - the
laughing stock of the 99th Precinct. Charles is always good for a cheap laugh,
and helps bring all the other characters together in the show. It’s difficult
to determine what he loves more, his weekly pizza v-log or Jake. Charles is at his very best when he goes 'full Boyle'.
Every show needs a brilliant
sad-case, and these shows have two of the very best. How well do you know these
two goofballs? Can you tell them apart from their quotes alone?
