Parameters

All attributes are optional.

Parameter Explanation
name Common name of the comedian (defaults to article name if left blank; provide birth_name (below) if different from name).
image Image name: abc.jpg, xpz.png, 123.gif, etc. If an image is desired but not available, one may add "yes" to the "needs-photo" section of the Template:WPBiography on the talkpage. If no image is available yet, do not use an image placeholder.
image_size Size to display image: 200px (set width), x300px (set height), or 200x300px (max width & max height). This defaults to frameless (default is 220px, but logged in users can change this by clicking on "my preferences" and adjusting thumbnail size) if empty or omitted. This parameter should not normally need to be set.
alt Alt text for image, for visually impaired readers. See WP:ALT.
caption Caption for image, if needed. Try to include date of photo and the photographer.
pseudonym Any of the comedian's aliases or pen names.
native_name Name in local language. If more than one, separate using {{Plain list}}
native_name_lang ISO 639-2 code e.g. "fr" for French. If more than one, use {{lang}} instead
birth_name Name at birth; only use if different from name.
birth_date Date of birth: {{birth date and age}} (if living) or {{birth date}} (if dead). See Template:Birth date and age/doc for details on usage. If only a year of birth is known, or age as of a certain date, consider using {{birth year and age}} or {{birth based on age as of date}}.
birth_place Place of birth: city, administrative region, sovereign state. Use the name of the birthplace at the time of birth, e.g.: Saigon (prior to 1976), Ho Chi Minh City (post 1976). Do not use a flag template.
death_date Date of death: {{death date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{death date}} (if birth date unknown). See Template:Death date/doc for details on usage. If exact dates are unknown, consider using {{death year and age}}.
death_place Place of death: city, administrative region, sovereign state. Note: Do not use a flag template. Use the name of the deathplace at the time of death, e.g.: Saigon (prior to 1976), Ho Chi Minh City (post 1976)
resting_place Location of grave, ashes, etc.
resting_place_coordinates Precise coordinates of grave, etc.
medium A list of medium(s) in which the comedian has performed. Examples include: television, stand-up, film, etc.

active Date range in years during which the comedian was active in their mediums, and/or other activity for which they are notable. Use the format 1950–2000, or 1970–present if the comedian is still active (note the use of an en dash, not hyphen). If no dates of birth and/or death are known for the comedian, only a floruit date range, this parameter can be used for it. If approximate (circa) dates are known for either or both, put them in the birth_date and death_date parameters.
employer
genre The comedian's general comedic genre. For instance, Jon Stewart would be political satire; George Carlin would be black humor.
subject The most frequent topics of the comedian's comedy. For instance, Dave Chapelle would be racism/race relations; Stephen Colbert would be politics/the Christian Right; Cheech Marin would be race and drugs.

Use as a child template

This infobox may be used to create a genre-specific section within {{Infobox person}}, for cases where a person may be notable in more than one field. To do so, call the template as follows:

{{Infobox person
| name =
| image =
| caption =
| birth_name =
| birth_date =
| birth_place =
| module =
{{Infobox comedian|child=yes
| parameter-1 =
| parameter-2 =

}}
}}

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583).

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.
