Stout novelist and comedian (5)


I believe the answer is:


This clue is a triple definition!

'stout' is the first definition.
(I know that stout can be written as hardy)

'novelist' is the second definition.
(Hardy is a novelist)

'and' is a link.

'comedian' is the third definition.
(I know that Hardy is a comedian)

(Other definitions for hardy that I've seen before include "Rugged; author" , "Strong and resilient" , "able to last through the winter" , "Jude, Tess author" , "standing the test of time?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
