    I’ve been recently catching up on shows. From the final season of the Good Place to finally watching Justified. Jason on The Good Place, although he occasionally had some strong moments, he annoyed the hell out me. He was unbelievably dumb, yet I loved Dewey Crowe on justified, a man who believed he had 4 kidneys.

    This got me wondering, what makes a great dumb character. They can be so hit and miss and this is obviously subjective. I’m just curious to hear people’s thoughts. And list any great characters that you think fit the mold.

    Does Alexis from Schitt’s Creek qualify? I guess she’s more “shallow” (at least in the beginning than dumb). Great character development, btw.

    I’ve not actually seen the show yet. But since they’ve just released Season 6 in the UK, I’m gonna start bingeing soon,once I finish Dead to Me. But dumb is a vague description of someone anyone so I’d say count it if you think it fits the mold.

    I’m also gonna add Ashley Jensen in Extras. One of the funniest characters in any Ricky Gervais show

    I recently re-watching Raising Hope and Garrett Dillhunt’s performance of Burt Chance is one of m favorite comedic performances ever.

    I loved Jason and Dewey. Jason is often the only source of comedy in The Good Place. I love the show but it was rarely hilarious. Jason and Derek give the most LOL moments throughout the series. Loved the shout out for Dylan in American Vandal too.

    I am watching parks and rec right now. Andy is a great dumb character. That’s hugely helped by him being so sweet
