Organization[edit]

You may want to organize these by country. Just my two cents. Rilr 12:04, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Notability (comedy)[edit]

I've created Wikipedia:Notability (comedy) to help editors in deciding the notability of comedy- and humor-related articles. Please help hammer it into shape. --Chris Griswold () 09:01, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Who copied from who and forgot to credit them?? http://www.answers.com/topic/list-of-humorists —Preceding unsigned comment added by 164.100.28.2 (talkcontribs)

Answers.com mirrors content from Wikipedia, therefore the list originates here, and is then shown there. Dreaded Walrus t c 22:02, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Alphabetical order[edit]

Is there any particular reason why these names are alphabetized by first name rather than last name? This seems unusual to me. –BMRR (talk) 01:08, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Seems unusual to me too. I favor re-ordering by last name. --Born2cycle (talk) 18:05, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Hmmm... I wonder if there is an automated way to fix this... or will I have to wait for a rainy day and just do it manually... –BMRR (talk) 18:23, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Big thanks to User:Rannpháirtí anaithnid for fixing the alphabetical order! –BMRR (talk) 00:52, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Criteria?[edit]

I like this list, but some names are a bit puzzling: I would have thought that Jimmy Carr and Bill Hicks were primarily stand-up comics, they seem a out of place here. Not sure about George Carlin either. Tigerboy1966 (talk) 08:24, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Should Jesus Christ be on this list? 31.185.229.112 (talk) 05:02, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
