    Yes and no. The performance itself is more interactive by nature, but acting is all about that presentation, the job is almost 100% about that communication with audience (and, when not, working with the director or cast around you). The comedian spends many more hours locked up alone writing material or meticulously finding the right cadence and manner to preform it (sometimes alone, sometimes experimenting with a crowd) than he actually does on stage. The time it takes to eventually build up to the performance is much more extensive than the time actually on stage. Unlike a band or an actor, for a comedian that rehearsal is him/her alone. Actor, director, writer all in one, except when he uses an audience as a random club as guinea pigs for new material before trying it in larger, more public sphere. You mentioned comedy writers as maybe more introverted, but all comedians are both performers AND writers, making it a bit more of a crap shoot than if they were strictly one or the other IMO.

    EDIT: Of course, the process differs between comedians. But I know many wall themselves away from everyone else for hours a day to work on comedy, compared to hour-long shows on only some nights.

    I change my mind on this man. Definitely ENTP, probably.

    Sorry girl who hates it when people say he's ENTP.

    Also worth noting: the version of himself he plays on his show is probably INTP, though that doesn't mean Louis himself actually is that, obviously.

It's an artificial connection, where you have control over how you present yourself. That isn't to say you don't present yourself honestly or don't have flaws (those things are needed in comedy), but it isn't the same to me as a normal conversation or forced interaction with folks you don't feel like talking to. Comedy is as much performance (and attention-getting) as any acting gig, and there are quite a few introverted actors.
    Indeed. I've always, ever since I was a kid, loved to be in front of an audience...and I am definitely an introvert. But it's not a hammy thing...it's getting enjoyment from presenting something you want to present. I like the attention--to a certain extent--and it's cool to have people liking what you do. That connection is cool. But I only interact with the audience as much as I want to, offstage. Onstage, it's all in your control. And I would think for certain comedians, it would be especially important to get your ideas out in the way they come to you--in your voice, your delivery, not filtered through some lame sitcom character or more successful, but hacky, standup.

    I would definitely never bank on a desire to perform alone as being an indicator of extraversion.

    INxP. I lean INTP because of his perspective on specific subjects and relationship with his comedic counter-parts as revealed via interviews & talk shows.

    I've been watching the show and I'm still kind of tied between INxP, but I am leaning towards INTP.

    Finally going to be seeing him in a few months. I'll report back then. I've thought ENTP thus far.
