Comic Actors

Actors who primarily appear in comedic roles, mostly sitcoms and sketch comedy shows. It should be emphasized that many of these people will not do Stand-Up Comedy, because playing a part for them is easier than coming up with a monologue about girls in Ibiza.

If they're black, they may well have done one of the stereotypical black comedy roles, such as Uncle Tomfoolery.

There is a tendency for any comic actor who enjoys a modicum of success to switch to playing dramatic roles.

Examples of comedic individuals (Saturday Night Live cast members will be marked with a double asterix):
