Is there a better single year of movies for a comedic actor than Jim Carrey in 1994
Dumb & Dumber, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and The Mask all in the same year.

Other have had great decades but what about a single year?

Gene Wilder had Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles in 1974 and that’s as close as I can find.

A few mentions:
Robin Williams had 6 movies come out in 2006, including:
Happy Feet
Night at the Museum
RV
Man of the Year

Adam Sandler 1998:
Wedding Singer
Waterboy

Michael J. Fox 1985:
Back to the Future
Teen Wolf
Poison Ivy (Made for TV movie, but I remember it being decent)

Steve Martin:
1986: Three Amigos & Little Shop of Horrors
1987: Roxanne & Planes, Trains and Automobiles
1991: LA Story & Father of the Bride

Tim Allen in 1999:
Galaxy Quest, Toy Story 2, final season of Home Improvement

Tom Hanks had several years with two great movies, but it was usually a comedy plus a drama, like 1995 with Toy Story and Apollo 13.

Though the closest I can find is probably John Candy:
1987 - Spaceballs & Planes, Trains and Automobiles
1985 - Brewster's Millions & Summer Rental & The Volunteers & Follow That Bird
1989 - Who's Harry Crumb & Cannonball Fever & Uncle Buck


**OR**

Dan Akroyd:
1988 - The Couch Trip, The Great Outdoors, My Stepmother is an Alien (and Caddyshack II as well)

In 1933, WC Fields appeared in International House, Tille & Gus, and Alice in Wonderland (as Humpty Dumpty, no less):



He also wrote and starred in three shorts: The Barber Shop, The Pharmacist, and, in what is in my esteemed opinion the greatest 18 minutes ever committed to celluoloid:

The Fatal Glass of Beer
