I seem to recall Billy Bob Thornton plays. Bill Burr plays as well.

That was awesome. I knew he was talented but I didn't know he could play drums and vibraphone. Really swung nicely with brushes.

Here's some vintage Jerry Lewis

Sammy Davis just transferred his tap dance skills to his hands.
He was much more than a comedian. Great singer as well.

Thank you Jbravo for that clip of Johnny Carson with Jack Benny. I knew that Johnny played and loved drums, but I never saw that clip with Jack. As always, I love Jack's response. (Then again, I'm biased. Jack was my grandfather.)

I love that Sammy Davis Jr. is being referred to as a comedian in this thread. I think most people remember Sammy as a singer or maybe a dancer, but indeed he could do it all, including comedy and voice impressions.

Kenny plays drums for Moop on South Park. His meter does need work though.

He's got very good time, didn't expect that.

Joseph Gordon Levitt is good here.

Fred Astaire in his own way.

Ron Jeremy drums, although I don't know how well. They used to have his autographed photo up at West LA Music.

That's actually Chad Smith, not Will Ferrell. Look at the video's description "Will Ferrell playing "Charlie" by Nirvana", it's clearly a joke.

No video,but Chevy Chase played drums with Becker and Fagen from Steely Dan back at Bart college.

Considering their taste in drummers ,Chevy must have been at least decent.

Sam Shepard. Played drums for The Holy Modal Rounders. I read that he played on their Dr. Demento featured classic, Boobs A Lot, but based on other information, that seems unlikely.
