Is Eminem The Funniest Artist In The History Of Music?

This comedian certainly thinks so.

If you've found yourself rolling on the floor and laughing out loud while listening to Eminem, you might not be alone.

In fact, comedian Bill Maher (host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher") recently gave Slim Shady some serious humor props during an interview with Lansing State Journal where he talked about wanting to have Em on his program.

"Well, I’m a huge fan," Maher said. "I would spend a little bit of time just gushing about how much he has entertained me. I’d not only bring that up but also how much he’s always made rap songs musical. He and Dr. Dre together are just phenomenal.

"He’s just so funny," Maher continued. "I don’t know if there’s any other person in the history of music — at least in my history of music — who has made me laugh out loud as many times as he has while I’m listening to his records. He’s a phenomenal talent. I don’t know if he’s suited to being on a talk show. I’ve been told 'Not so much,' and you almost never see him do that. But he’s a real artist and he speaks through his art, and that’s enough for me."

While he might not be a guest on Maher's show, Slim did share some comedy chops in a hilariously confusing July interview with Stephen Colbert. But of course he's also showcased humor throughout his career, something fans have definitely enjoyed.
