The Deadly Comedian most likely refers to DC Comics' "The Joker". The mask resembles the iconic red lips across the face and pale white.
The Deadly Comedian could also be a reference to "Jeff the Killer", who a fictional knife wielding murderer who cut the corners of his mouth to make a permanent smile, and burned off his eyelids so he could always see his "beauty".
