    Who is the most influential entertainer ever?

    I think it is either Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson, but I want to know what YOU think!

    I assume that you are referring to influence on the viewers or listeners. I  thought the most influential was Lucille ball who really made people laugh for years and stayed in their hearts. Then I would say Carol Brunnet and in recent days Oprah (is she an entertainer ? I dont know) But then it really is not possible to just name one or two because there are so many that have made history of their own.

    This is a difficult question to answer but since you used the term "entertainer" as opposed to other terms such as singer, musician, etc., I find that I would have to say "Elvis."  Here is my reasoning.  Elvis took a genre of music that essentially almost did not exist and pioneered a frontier for it.  He was not just a singer, a musician, a dancer of sorts and an actor, he was all of it in one package.  On that basis and on the basis of his originality and talents I would have to say that he was singularly the most influential.  WB

    Michael Jackson's whose life seems to have been cut off too soon.  An excellent performer and entertainer.
