* Rush Limbaugh's radio personality is often hammy, and he cheerfully spoofed it (and himself) in a mock "commercial" aired during the November 4, 1994 episode of the Late Show With David Letterman. Holding a ham, and hamming it up, he did a skit as himself hawking the product "Big Ass Ham!"
* ConspiracyTheorist, AlexJones, has become more famous over the years for his hammy speeches and tirades against the New World Order, more so than any real conspiracy's he claims to uncover.

** Dutch commentator Jack van Gelder has earned a bit of a reputation for his uncontrolled emotions when Oranje scores. Most notable example is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exlBHTyB1R0 this.]] Of course the Dutch have also subverted this wonderfully in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMBQVaYUhQU this]] commercial.

I am going to open a ''whore'' house, and when I have the most beautiful women in the world offering their glorious bodies, not one of you will be allowed through the door!"

* The deceased [[UsefulNotes/ThePope Pope John Paul II]] had also his share of hamminess as well, specially in his first decade of pontificate (when his health still was more or less good). I.e., his visit to the still-under-dictatorship Chile had him reuniting a crowd of 90.000 in the Estadio Nacional [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOnJ4ZuKWjc for a speech]], and the most recalled phrase he said there was a simply bombastic "No tengáis miedo... DE MIRARRRRRLO A ÉEEEEEEL!" (roughly translated as "Do not be afraid... OF STARING AAAAAT HIIIIIIIIIM!") (Him being God, obviously).

* The Lakota (Sioux) language has special constructions for rhetoric (in other words, it marks ''hamminess'' in its grammar the way Japanese marks politeness) -- and men's speech is marked by using them. Apparently, the Sioux believed [[ChewingTheScenery Real Men Chew Scenery]].
