A ridiculously larger-than-life character, public speaker, or orator full of charisma, energy, ''joie de vivre'', [[HotBlooded blood as hot as the surface of the Sun]] and poetically powerful speeches with [[MilkingTheGiantCow dramatic gestures]] that [[ChewingTheScenery can devastate a scene to a billion pieces]] and transform the most soul-crushingly boring into the most '''''[[MundaneMadeAwesome GRANDIOSE]]'''''. Often played by a guest star with an Internet Movie Database listing longer than the rest of the cast put together.

Popular implementations include: '''[[Creator/BrianBlessed BRIAN BLESSED]]''' in Britain, Creator/WilliamShatner in North America, and NorioWakamoto in Japan. Many large hams in the past have some experience in stage acting and theater: when you have to poetically act for the back rows ([[{{Opera}} especially when coupled with music]]) it makes sense. Having an outrageous appearance is helpful but not a requirement. While often male, female actors can pull it off, but it's rarer for them. Often cast as a {{one scene wonder}}, or a [[HamAndCheese key redeeming element]] in shows that are SoBadItsGood.

Note that although it is rare, one can be very hammy without raising one's voice at all. Being hammy is about the ''emphasis'' in what you say (and MilkingTheGiantCow to no small degree), and while emphasis can be easily shown by having NoIndoorVoice, it is not the only way.
