Happy birthday Will Ferrell!

The funny guy turns 51 years old today and lucky for us his comedic chops just keep getting more and more funny as the years go by.

Fans of Ferrell know the Irvine, California native as a father of three, husband, comedian and above all else an actor who continually makes them laugh at the box office.

Over the past 20 plus years, The House actor has been in more movies than we can count (almost all of which are comedies) and numerous TV series including Saturday Night Live where he got his big comedy break.

Even though we have a few favorite Ferrell characters from SNL like George W. Bush or all the times he channeled his inner cheerleader as half of the Spartan's cheer team (alongside Cheri Oteri), his movie roles are the ones we can't stop laughing at after all of these years. 

Whether it's his role as everyone's favorite, and totally absurd anchorman, Ron Burgundy in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, or his ability to make an adult elf lovable in Elf, his film characters are always memorable.

In honor of the hilarious star's birthday we want to celebrate his best comedy roles ever...and get your opinion on which of them reigns supreme.

So, get ready to laugh as you scroll through Ferrell's funniest roles below and cast your vote for the one you can't help but laugh at once you're done.

Happy bday Will, you are one funny guy!
