Is there anything funnier than a guy who can't dress himself wanting to start a t-shirt company? No there isn't, and that is just one hilarious character played by Jack Black. With his ways of expressing himself, humorous actions, and ability to make all kinds of characters funny, Jack Black is the king of comedy. Black can express himself in odd, but comical ways. One is his good singing ability; he's even in his own band. In the movie School of Rock, he is able to sing very high-pitched and sometimes really loud; or, he sings nonsense words that make everyone laugh.

He might shock his audiences or make them curious, but Black's sure to make them laugh.

If I had only seen one movie with Black in it, I would think he was funny, but I wouldn't know about Black's ability to play several types of characters; he always...
