I suspect that this is more a matter of taste than of rules, but I wondered what people felt about: Charlie Azacrul, the actor, is playing at the Bling Theatre, Croydon. Are those first two commas too fussy? Would it be better to write Charlie Azacrul the actor is playing at the Bling Theatre, Croydon? How about We went out to dinner, and Charlie Azacrul, the actor, was at the table next to us? I'm inclined to include the commas. I am preparing a publication and would like to get it right.
