Entry from US English dictionary
(also gag man)
Definition of gagman in English:
A writer or performer of gags.
- He was an old-style rat-a-tat Henny Youngman style gagman, and you could just imagine him on a stage in the waning days of vaudeville wearing a suit with oversized plaid pattern, a gigantic daisy and big shoes.
- What I hadn't realised is that Cryer, apart from being a consummate gagman, is a closet rocker.
- This may have been, in part, due to the fact that he was honing his skills as a writer and gagman at the time.
