17 TV Dads Who Are So Funny, They're Sexy (PHOTOS)

What's hotter than a man who can make us laugh? It may not be everything, but having a killer sense of humor is a great start. Modern Family's Phil Dunphy (played by Ty Burrell) isn't exactly a model, but every time he shows up on screen, we laugh so hard we kinda sorta want to kiss him. The sweet and funny TV dad won our hearts with his geeky humor, but he isn't the only onscreen dad who tickles our fancy by tickling our funny bone.

From Ricky Ricardo to Richard Castle, we're crushing big-time on TV fathers so funny, they're sexy. Which is your favorite?
