* The UK also have their own hammy sports commentator with Jonathan Pearce. No wonder he was picked to be the commentator of ''Series/RobotWars'' as well.

* Donald Wolfit is an Ur-Example. He was roundly ridiculed in his time for his overblown Shakespearean acting, but he didn't leave this onstage. His angry rants and huge ego (deliberately hiring second-rate co-stars to focus attention on himself) made him the laughingstock of peers like Olivier and Gielgud. The play and movie ''The Dresser'' provide a fictionalized version of Wolfit.

** Sport reporter and narrator Fernando Solabarrieta, who is known to ''cry'' and scream when he's hyperventilated. You want to see it? Check [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SYDeGlC2t8 this.]]
** Pedro Carcuro is another Chilean ham (and unsurprisingly, one with [[WorldOfHam Italian]] ancestry); he may be a bit low-key when compared to Solabarrieta, but gets extra point for still still hammy through at least 30 years. A good example is is absolutely EPIC celebration [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=US9hD8TXICk of this very awesome goal]] in TheEighties [[note]](taking place in the clasification round for Spain 1982, in the Chile vs. Paraguay match in Asunción)[[/note]]; it was quite the MemeticMutation back then... [[NeverLiveItDown and still is.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Following the lead of Carcuro and Solabarrieta, sports narrator [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NI2BQn1CQg Claudio Palma]] is more than capable of hamming it up during matches.

* Sarmatism was a cultural movement popular in XVII-XVIII Century Poland and Lithuania. In theory, it was meant to emulate the customs of ancient Sarmatians, but in practice, it was like an exercise in creating a WorldOfHam. Heavy cavalry? Have them wear leopard skins and giant metal wings. A speech? Infuse it with so much [[AltumVidetur Gratuitous Latin]] there's hardly any Polish left, and don't forget to cry. Political protest? Fall to the ground, block the door with your body, rip your shirt and shout you'll let no one pass. Funeral? Doesn't count if there's no fully-armed Hussar riding into the church in full gallop and breaking his lance against the coffin stand, and ritual demolition of the dead man's insignia of office.
