Every comedian has a distinct personality, and when performing on stage, all comedians play a kind of a version or character of themselves. However, there are comedians that are known as Character Comedians. These comedians create an entirely new persona for their comedy performance. The comedic character is what separates a comedian from a comic.
For a character comedian, character comedy is derived from the persona created by the performer. In other words, a character comedian whose character and joke telling ability is what makes them so funny. Playing a character allows a comedian to create entirely new material to work with and allows for more flexibility.
In character comedy, the comedian performs as though he was a character created by him or her. A lot of character comedy comes from stereotypes. The characters they play have real personalities, a certain way of talking, particular interests, and certain likes and dislikes. It is this natural character – speaking style, facial expressions, body language, dress, and voice inflections, that makes the character comedian so hilarious and so popular at just about every type of event.
