A biopic is a film that dramatizes the life of a real person. Comedy biopics are films that focus on the comedic aspects of a person's life. They often exaggerate or make light of the subject's accomplishments or struggles. While biopics can be serious or humorous, comedy biopics are typically lighter fare.

While they may not be Academy Award-winners, comedy biopics are often enjoyed by fans of the subject and provide a unique perspective on their life and work.
