Who was the greatest entertainer Charlie Chaplin or Michael Jackson?

Everyone will probably say MJ and dismiss Charlie Chaplin even though he was the world's best comedian. He wrote, produced, directed, and composed music for his movies, many of which are regarded as classics. Also his training as a gymnast made him an exceptional dancer and a mime. He was a true artist!

Update:

@and then-A great performer's legacy should be passed on. It shouldn't matter because more than likely you have only seen either one perform on film. A great performer's talents should be passed on for generations.

    DEFINATLY Charlie Chaplin.

    first off, he wasnt a pedofile.

    second, i still laugh at some of his films.

    i never realy liked MJ.. he did have a few good songs, but only parts of america liked him.

    the whole world could enjoy Charlie

    MJ did admire Charlie Chaplin, it's fair to say he used some of his influence. 'Smile' was written by Charlie Chaplin.

    Young kids today probably don't get it, how clever Charlie Chaplin was at a time of limited technology.

    Have to say though, Chaplin didn't have the best reputation either and got into trouble for sleeping with someone who was underage.

    Uh hello, Michael was the worlds best singer! and i wouldn't be surprised if people said Michael he is very talented, but charlie was a big influence on Michael.Michael even has pictures of him imitating charlie So if charlies the best comedian and Michael is the best singer It's just truly to hard to choose from because they were both very special and changed our world completely!

    no offense, but it's almost a trick question. entertainer is such a vague term for both these great men. charlie chaplin was the greatest comedian of all time, and michael jackson is the greatest pop star of all time. charlie is the father of comedy, and michael is the king of pop! so, both of them are the greatest entertainers in their respectful categories. and a little fact for you, if you don't already know, michael sang the song "smile" that was actually written and produced by charlie. in the link below is a tribute video that someone made and it's pretty cool.

    hope this helps! :)

    Michael Jackson

    He was a true artist too

    Have you seen the man move? Not that many people can dance that well, sure people can dance but not like that. And he was a trendsetter...Michael Jackson was angel. But I have much respect for Charlie Chaplin. But Michael was truly blessed
