22A FEA Comedy Roundtable

Clockwise from front: Danny DeVito, Jon Cryer, Neil Patrick Harris, Ed O'Neill, Joel McHale, Rob Lowe and Chris Colfer were photographed May 7 at Smashbox Studios in West Hollywood.

Television's funnymen sound off on their favorite comedians, their biggest failures and what they really think about reality television.

No one was more deserving than Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer to kick off this year's Comedy Actor Roundtable event. Not only did the actor survive the circus of co-star Charlie Sheen exiting the series, he can actually laugh about it. He joined his fellow Emmy hopefuls for a candid -- and often R-rated -- chat about the state of their craft.

The conversation had such veterans as Danny DeVito (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Ed O'Neill (Modern Family) waxing nostalgic, newbie Chris Colfer (Glee) reflecting on just how unfunny he is on-camera, wisecracker Joel McHale (Community) offering a colorful account of his bravest moment onscreen, and not-just-pretty-boy chameleons Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation) coming clean with their biggest industry gripes.
