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?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 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)

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


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? (talk) 05:02, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Add Larry Thompson humorist to list[edit]

Should not Larry Thompson (humorist) be in the list of humorists? Fleejoseph (talk) 06:29, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

@Fleejoseph:No need. The Larry Thompson already listed on the page is Larry Thompson (humorist).Shortsword (talk) 13:46, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
