This is a list of the winners of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. In early Emmy ceremonies, the supporting categories were not always genre, or even gender, specific. Beginning with the 22nd Emmys supporting actors in comedy have competed alone. However, these comedic performances often included actors from miniseries, telefilms, and guest performers competing against main cast competitors. Such instances are marked below.
