"Esto es por los comicos de Espana"

In Javier Bardem's Oscar acceptance speech, he dedicated his award to his mom and "los comicos de Espana" who have, like his mom, "brought dignity and pride to our work." (please excuse me if my transcription or borrowed translation are inaccurate.)

What exactly is meant by "los comicos" here? Was Bardem's mother in fact a comedian, or does "comicos" refer to all actors in a popular tradition (as opposed to classically-trained tragedians) and even more broadly to TV and movie actors in general?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
