Good question - the answer is you would not. No comma friends: 'My friends John, Sarah etc.
In the singular yes: 'My friend, John, is a good painter.'

HI Anisa, welcome to the site! If you scroll to the end of the poem you can read information including: date poem was written, date poem was submitted to the site, how long it takes to read the poem and also the number of views. It can take a while for your poems to get noticed - one way of getting out there is to promote your poem. It then gets featured on our homepage in the promoted poems section and you can enjoy your views rise there ;)

Yes, as the two titles are a 'mini' list of qualifications, a comma is the correct way to go. We're adding an article specifically addressing commas following titles, shortly.

By way of an answer, the author wishes to convey that the sentence,
'My friend John, who is a better painter than me, can do the walls for your home.'
with the clause,
'who is a better painter than me,'
can be grammatically accurate both with and without the commas.
Having said this, using commas before and after the clause, 'who is a better painter than me,' makes the sentence read, and sound, better. Let's call the, 'highly recommended', rather than essential. :)

Hope this helps! Have a great day ahead!

Thanks for your well-phrased and thoughtful question!
I believe the words 'essential/non essential' are the cause for confusion and we'll edit the article accordingly.
