The 8 Most Hilarious Characters in the TV Show, Ranked | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Modern Family is among America’s most decade-defining television programs, making audiences smile from 2009 to 2020. The show has been brought up both critically and casually in regard to its approach to capturing LGBTQ+ family life and normalizing on-screen queer relationships.

The series also captured blended families alongside the typical nuclear family unit, including those who come from vastly different backgrounds. Fans grew increasingly close to the characters over the years, and their individual styles of humor still keep audiences laughing. These are eight of the most hilarious Modern Family characters, ranked.



8 Mitchell Pritchett


Mitchell Pritchett’s character is so complex, and he’s so much more than just his career-oriented side that viewers often see. His parenting of Lily and banter with his husband, Cameron, bring out his casual sense of humor. It often comes out during his day-to-day operations with the two of them as a family, like when he tells Cam “Don’t cry, you’ll streak your bronzer.” A couple of his jokes don’t land in the most politically correct way, but others use that edge to their advantage.

7 Manny Delgado

Rico Rodriguez as Manny Delgado in Modern Family.

Manny Delgado brings an intentional nature and gold-hearted approach to his daily life, which the rest of his family doesn’t always reciprocate. This dynamic can unfortunately make it easy for them to poke fun at him sometimes (Claire says that he “dresses like a count”). Manny’s maturity is matched by his sweet demeanor, but he takes his coffee “Black. Like I feel on the inside.”

6 Cameron Tucker

Eric Stonestreet as Cameron Tucker on Modern Family.

Cameron Tucker is many things – a father, a husband, and of course, Fizbo the clown (though he’s definitely a clown in more ways than one). Much of his humor is found in his own approach to the world, expressed through his soft-hearted yet enduringly dramatic personality. On the family’s trip to Disneyland, Cam hooks little Lily up to a “child safety tether,” to which Mitch adds, “It’s a leash.”

Cam’s general niceness exudes through his down-home upbringing, though he doesn’t always have the kindest jokes to contribute to the conversation.

5 Gloria Delgado-Pritchett

Sofía Vergara on Modern Family

Gloria Delgado-Pritchett is fabulous, in every sense of the word. She’s another character who is often funny without even trying to be, due to her larger-than-life personality. Gloria’s devotion as a mother pairs perfectly with her excitable and bold outlook on life, and she extends her joy to the younger kids in the family as well as Manny. After their home gets hit by bullies, Gloria shouts one of her most memorable quotes: “You put egg on my house! I kill what you love!”

4 Alex Dunphy

Ariel Winter on Modern Family

As the youngest Dunphy sister, Alex is as smart as a whip, and her humor is just as intellectually engaged. She’s often one step ahead of her siblings and others around her, which may leave her on the sidelines occasionally. However, her growth throughout Modern Family‘s 11 years really allows for her personality and sense of humor to bloom. When Haley shouts, “I wish she was never even born!” to Claire about Alex, Alex retorts, “They were trying to make one with a brain!”

3 Haley Dunphy (Marshall)

Sarah Hyland as Haley Dunphy on Modern Family.

Haley Dunphy, who later marries Dylan and becomes Haley Marshall, is one of Modern Family‘s most iconic characters (her mugshot alone proves it). As the oldest Dunphy child, she set the bar for their sibling shenanigans, and her increasing maturity throughout the series leaves room for her bubbly personality to shine through her jokes. But she isn’t exactly the airhead she’s often portrayed as.

Her day-to-day actions (like dressing up as Mother Theresa “when she was hot” for Halloween) are often as funny as her more intentional comments toward her family and friends.

2 Phil Dunphy

Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy in Modern Family.

Phil Dunphy is the king of dad jokes, and his character development throughout Modern Family strengthens his humor while keeping him portrayed as a devoted parent and mostly-capable adult. His Phil’s-osophy book holds so many essential life lessons that we all could stand to hear; for example, “When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life will be all ‘Whaaaat?'” And who could forget just how deeply he embodied his character in the outstanding Godfather parody episode?

1 Lily Tucker-Pritchett

Aubrey Anderson-Emmons as Lily Tucker-Pritchett on Modern Family.

Lily Tucker-Pritchett is by far the funniest Modern Family character. Almost as soon as she’s able to speak, her comedic timing and matter-of-fact remarks begin to shock and amuse audiences. Before she’s even five, she responds to a too-late wedding invite with, “It’s okay, I’ll go to your next one.” She tells her dads to “cry [her] a river” and call her “a wambulance.” As Lily gets older, and she enters her teen years, her unique outlook on life becomes more earnest than the one-liners viewers expect from her younger self. As Modern Family progresses, she grows from a curious kid with a potty mouth into a unique adolescent.
