40. Carol Kane
It takes a lot of confidence to play opposite of Andy Kaufman and speak a gibberish language with a straight face. But as Simka on "Taxi," Carol Kane stood toe-to-toe with her co-stars. She even went so far as to win two Emmys for her work on the show. Over the years, Kane's particular brand of comedy crystalized into a sugary sweet persona with bite. Sure, she might sound like she's doing a little girl voice but underneath is comedienne with sass, impeccable timing, and most importantly, a willingness to look silly to sell the bit.
