I wrote what I believed to be the 20 greatest comedies of all time a while back and at the time I was generally satisfied with the list, however as time has passed other comedies have come to the front of my mind which were snubbed and really belong, hence I have updated the list. So let’s get going!
I decided to make a list of the best recurring characters of all time. If you are wondering what my criteria for this is (and why wouldn’t you be) I am referring to characters who are not in a TV show as a main character yet have appeared in a number of episodes but not all of them (less than 50%), I am however excluding guest actors or actors who have only appeared in a grouping of episodes. Initially I intended this to be a list across all genres but as I wrote down the names that I felt deserved to be on the list they were all from comedy shows. I think this may stem from the fact that dramas do not lend themselves to strong non starring characters the way comedies do.
