Pierrot is a stock character of pantomime and commedia dell'arte whose origins are in the late seventeenth-century Italian troupe of players performing in Paris and known as the Comédie-Italienne; the name is a diminutive of Pierre (Peter), via the suffix -ot. She performs in a long white dress with large buttons, with a wide white beret and white-faced face. He usually appears in pantomime, usually a comic character, often an angered lover.
