Cheesy, labeled, The Comedian, was a minor character on Inanimate Insanity and a contestant on Inanimate Insanity II. He first appears in a commercial advertising CheeseCraft, a now-closed Minecraft server.
Cheesy is a yellow triangular wedge of cheese. He has several holes in his body, including on his face.
Cheesy is defined by his desire to make those around him laugh. At any opportunity available, Cheesy will crack a joke or pun to try and make those around him laugh. As his name implies, Cheesy's jokes are regarded as cheap and tacky. Additionally, Cheesy may accompany his jokes with a knee slap, or when someone else makes a joke or pun without even realizing it. Due to his constant joking, is often regarded as annoying and unfunny by others.
Though it's unclear whether he realizes people find him annoying or not, Cheesy is a dedicated and enthusiastic joker, and will go to great lengths in order to make a joke. In "Marsh on Mars", he runs across an empty field in order to give a knee slap to Soap's joke, and in "Cooking for the Grater Good", where he continues to make jokes about cheese despite the fact that he is simultaneously being grated to death. He also frequently cuts into eliminations in order to crack a joke.
Cheesy is generally cheerful, even in situations of personal peril. However, he is very sensitive to criticism towards his jokes. If one happens to offend him, his attitude changes drastically and he will act violently. As seen in "A Kick in the Right Direction", Knife comments that his jokes are terrible, and in "Let 'Er R.I.P.", Bow quietly notes that his joke wasn't funny, Cheesy becomes enraged at both and attempts to harm them.
Although he has a passion for humor, Cheesy's delivery can sometimes seem insensitive. While his jokes are usually nothing more than friendly banter and play-on-words, Cheesy may occasionally mock other contestants and offend them if he gets too caught up in a joke. In "Theft and Battery", he offends Microphone personally by cracking a joke about her personality, provoking her to shout back at him and call him out for his cruel joke. This upsets Cheesy deeply, causing him to consider giving up humor entirely. However, even at his low point, he was quick to start smiling again, indicating that nothing gets him down for long.
He is a playable character in it. He represents one of the multiple playable Inanimate Insanity characters.
