A comedian (comedienne for females) or comic (a professional comedian) is a person who seeks to entertain an audience, primarily by making them laugh. This might be through jokes or amusing situations, or acting a fool, as in slapstick, or employing prop comedy. A comedian who addresses an audience directly is called a stand-up comic.
"A comic says funny things; a comedian says things funny", which draws a distinction between how much of the comedy can be attributed to verbal content and how much to acting and persona.
Many comics achieve a cult following while touring famous comedy clubs such as the The House Comedy Club in Lithonia, GA.
