  • Comment Background is rather JPEG artefacty. Stevage 01:44, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Conditional support very good but would like an edit. --Muhammad(talk) 05:49, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
    • On second thought, I don't mind it so much. Its not visible at the lower resolution I usually upload my pictures so no big deal. --Muhammad(talk) 17:14, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Conditional support: Could benefit from a little cleanup, but I love freely released publicity photos. High quality image that displays the subject how he wishes to be displayed- in my view, more encyclopedic than some candid shot. J Milburn (talk) 10:29, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
    • Oops. I struck our your conditional by mistake --Muhammad(talk) 18:54, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Support I wish more celebrities would do this. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 22:19, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose This is a posed publicity photo with little EV beyond showing what this guy looks like (for significant EV it would need to show him doing something related to his notability), so I think that it fails criteria 3 and 5. Nick-D (talk) 23:31, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
  • If portraits fail FP criterias 3 and 5 we have several hundred images to delist. Staxringold talkcontribs 23:48, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
  • It clearly passes 3- after seeing the image, I wanted to know more. It adds as much value to the article as any portrait- they must add a significant amount, as we are willing to use non-free images for the same purpose when a free image is not possible. Furthermore, as I suggested in my support, this adds more than a simple candid snapshot, as it displays the subject in role- in this case, in his role as a comedic entertainer, rather than in role as, say, someone doing their shopping, or getting off the plane...

You're right, a comedian with an aggressive, oddball sense of humour really should be portrayed totally differently than wearing a brightly coloured suit, goofy grin and with raised fists. That tells us nothing about him whatsoever. Stevage 12:43, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Support I had no idea who this comedian was before I saw this picture, but it certainly conveys a lot about his character after reading up more about him. As much as we like to be factual, would it be an accurate representation of the person if he was standing to attention in a black suit and pulling a passport face? I dont believe so.

  • Support edit1, now that it's been cleaned up. EV, quality are there. (I want to get this off the page - something about that clownish grin disturbs me...) Mostlyharmless (talk) 06:06, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Support edit 1 good depiction of the subject, adds value to the article it appears in, technically sound, free license. Guest9999 (talk) 22:45, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
