[[folder: Radio ]]

* Sir Donald Sinden, in the BBC Radio adaptation of ''Death On The Nile''. And the BBC Radio adaptation of ''The Hound Of The Baskervilles''. The TV series ''Never The Twain'' was one long Ham-Off between him and Windsor Davies.
** From ''Series/SpittingImage'':
--->'''Sir Donald''': Do you serve... ''a ham salad''?
--->'''Waiter''': We serve salad to anyone.
* The radio version of ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' features a particularly hammy performance from their Zaphod Beeblebrox. This can also apply to the TV version, it used the same actors, but the low-budget second head tends to reduce the ham.
* Creator/DawsButler as '''THE FIRE-BREATHING DRAGON''' in ''St. George and the Dragonet''. The dragon is arrested by St. George (Creator/StanFreberg) for devouring maidens out of season [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and overacting.]]
* Ray Goulding, one-half of radio satirists ''Radio/BobAndRay'', who used his classic theatrical baritone to great effect in skits calling for this character type. Partly justified by the [[RadioDrama medium he was parodying]], but mostly just because he was having a whole lot of fun.
* Edwin Blackgaard is an in-universe example from ''Radio/AdventuresInOdyssey'', but he's almost as bad off-stage. It makes for a very sharp contrast with his evil brother, Regis, who gives a quieter, more even-handed performance and is scarier for it.
** Regis even lampshades this when he's talking to Jason, saying "My brother may be a scenery chewing ham, but he does have excellent taste."
* On ThatMitchellAndWebbSound, both Mitchell and Webb have their moments:
** Webb's would be the title character of the recurring sketch, "The Surprising Adventures of Sir Digby Chicken Caesar", an insane hobo who thinks he is a dashing adventurer.
** Mitchell's more prone to histrionics, but is not likely to top the series 3 finisher, where he played a man with no arms, legs, torso, or neck, engaged in a feverish and increasingly ludicrous description of the world's most beautiful art object.
*** "ANGELA! SPIT VACUUM!"
* Basil Rathbone: [[http://www.basilrathbone.net/radio/ "I love Radio, but then I am an awful ham!"]]
* Anthony Head ([[HeyItsThatGuy yes]], Giles from ''Series/{{Buffy|TheVampireSlayer}}'') as [[EvilGloating gloating]] CardCarryingVillain Mr Gently Benevolent in Dickensian parody ''Radio/BleakExpectations''
* Tom Baker as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Marshall_Hall Sir Edward Marshall Hall]] in ''The Trials of Marshall Hall''. {{Justified|Trope}}, since Sir Edward was well-known for his florid, theatrical style in court.
* BBC [[CausticCritic film critic]] Creator/MarkKermode can go into this category sometimes, ''especially'' when he gets into his trademark rant modes.
* Radio/RidersRadioTheater: Pretty much the whole cast, given it is satirical radio melodrama.

[[folder: Recorded And Stand Up Comedy ]]

* Brian Regan.
-->'''''MMMMMMAAANNNNNNSSLLLAUGHTER
* Creator/DaneCook can be one. Frankly, he'd probably be boring if he didn't tell even the most mundane of jokes by ''running in circles and screaming''.
* Creator/RobinWilliams
* Creator/LewisBlack
* German cabaret artist Serdar Somuncu often poses as a Large Ham, intentionally exaggerating the trope.
* Creator/PattonOswalt
* The dragon in "St. George and the Dragonet," lampshaded by an exchange when St. George accused him of maiden-devouring out of season.
-->'''Dragon''': You'll never take me alive, copper! You hear me?\\
'''St. George''': Yeah, I hear ya. I've got you on a 412, too.\\
'''Dragon''': A 412? WHAT'S A 412?\\
'''St. George''': Overacting. Let's go.

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]

* The color commentary mechanic in ''TabletopGame/{{The Splinter}}'' rewards this. Professional players can pause in the middle of an action and describe what they're doing, similar to how reality tv shows cut away in the middle of an event so that the participants can describe how they felt and what they saw and did. Depending on how awesome and over-the-top their description is, that player can get a bonus to their dice pool.
* Seemingly every person of higher rank in the Imperium of Man, Chaos, or other factions in the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' universe comes with a large slice of ham.
** '''[[AxCrazy KILL! MAIM! BURN! KILL! MAIM! BURN! KILL! MAIM! BURN! KILL! MAIM! BURN! KILL! MAIM! BURN! KILL! MAIM! BURN! KILL! MAIM! BURN! KILL! MAIM! BURN]]!'''
** Or Khorne's.
----> '''BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!'''
-----> '''HARRIERS FOR THE CUP!'''
** Literature/CiaphasCain gets his own Large Ham even, in ''Cain's LastStand'', when he gives a propaganda speech to the planet. Even Inquisitor Vail has no comment on it, because quite frankly it's so {{out of character|Moment}} that it speaks for itself.
* Some of the many alien powers in ''Cosmic Encounter'' seem designed to encourage players to play them this way, but especially the Sniveler.
** And the Silencer, for whom booming 'SILENCE!' at the top of your lungs is almost mandatory.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', it seems like one of the prerequisites for becoming one of the titular [[AGodIsYou Exalted]] is to be a colossal ham, and TheFairFolk, [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]] and Deathlords get in on it too.
** Infernals have an especially large slice, since they can appease their demonic masters by ranting about their EvilPlan.
* Anyone in ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' with the (Overacted) Speechlessness Bonus XP condition will most likely be devouring the scenery at the drop of a hat. The pregen character Leonardo de Montreal from ''Glass-Maker's Dragon'' would be the standout here.
** Also those with the Fist-Pump/Salute XP condition, as displayed by pregen character Jasmine Apocynum.

[[folder: Theme Parks ]]

* Ooblar is definitely this in ''Ride/JimmyNeutronsNicktoonBlast'', possibly even more-so than in the [[WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius movie]]. He is completely overwhelmed with happiness on the opportunity to take-over the world, taking the opportunity to remind that to the riders at every turn.
* Electro in ''Ride/TheAmazingAdventuresOfSpiderMan'', who always makes it joyfully clear to everyone that he has electricity powers.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Manhwa ]]

* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'':
** Rak. Being a 4 meter tall alligator does that to you.
---> "OF COURSE! A GAME WITHOUT ME IS A GAME NOT WORTH WINNING!"
** Then, there's Androssi:
---> "You dare kick the great Androssi in the face?! Do you realize what you are doing to humanity's greatest cultural heritage?"

[[folder: Visual Novels ]]

* Gundham Tanaka from ''VideoGame/DanganRonpa2'' yells almost every line and is constantly boasting that he's a demon from hell, he also calls his four pet hamsters the 'Dark Devas of Destruction'. His whole demeanor is that of a super-villain, though he sometimes gets sheepish when Sonia compliments him.

[[folder: Other ]]

* [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] is played this way in many of his incarnations... It's so common that presenting him as low key or mellow is a subversion of his normal character. A good example of [[{{Pun}} deviled ham]] would be Creator/ViggoMortenson as Lucifer in ''Film/TheProphecy.'' Possibly an even better one is Creator/AlPacino in ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'', but then it ''is'' Al Pacino: "GOD is an ''ABSENTEE LANDLORD!!''"
* Anyone listening to the audiobook of ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'' can tell that Creator/NeilGaiman had a blast reading the part of Mr. Croup.
* Music/ElvisPresley is caricatured as this sometimes.
* Jacob P. Galvatron of WebVideo/MyWayEntertainment's Franchise/{{Transformers|Generation1}} parody.
* George the Volcano, from the UK Volvic ads. "Hel-lo, Tyrannosaurus Allan! I'm filling my water with '''volcanicity'''!"
* Some many parodists on Hamiright.com can be extremely hammy including Hogrimorfee (Agrimorfee), Red Ham (Red Ant) and Hammy G (Chucky G).
* Peyton Manning can really [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FlwJwL6kdo CUT THAT HAM]] in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6mfDJ02VCY commercial]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8kMrLx6_aQ&feature=related appearances]].
* State-run TV news anchors can be very hammy in their support for their autocrats. [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/8401362/Libya-Gun-toting-newsreader-vows-last-drop-of-blood-for-Gaddafi-on-live-TV.html Take this AK-47 toting Libyan news anchor for example.]]
* Peter Travers for the RollingStone makes [[http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/blogs/the-travers-take/video-travers-praises-the-best-and-trashes-the-worst-movies-of-2010-20101227 hammy video reviews.]] [[http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/blogs/the-travers-take/peter-travers-country-strong-and-season-of-the-witch-belong-in-the-scum-bucket-20110106 See for yourself...]]
* Steve Ballmer in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGvHNNOLnCk this]] Windows commercial.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvsboPUjrGc He also gets really excited during presentations.]] Especially if they are about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8To-6VIJZRE&feature=related developers]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTkA9L2J2gY advertisers.]]
* Creator/VinceOffer. He practically [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwRISkyV_B8 sells]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUbWjIKxrrs himself]].
* I AIN GON' WALK AGINNN....NOT EVEN ONů CRUTCHEYEZZZZZ. Actually, the whole thing is a master class on Ham.
* Among UsefulNotes/{{furr|yFandom}}ies, Dr. Samuel Conway, also known as Uncle Kage, is notorious and much-loved for his delightfully over-the-top persona in public. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Uvu6p0AbHY Just watch]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0X99df8xkic a few]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G03fc2ZDGcI of his]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGzghL4aOGo performances.]]
* Let's Player LetsPlay/{{azuritereaction}} is a good example of this, and many of his videos have over-the-top rages, loud voice acting, and tons of randomness, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6H0JE3iB_0 here]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeUUB8nrPpw here]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtR1KRO6zp4 here]].
* Bas Rutten.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQcWBUxDIQk "EAAARRRTHQUAAAAAAKE WAAAARNIIIING HAS BEEN ISSUUUED FOR...CALIFORNIA!"]]
* Several incarnations of SantaClaus are quite hammy. There's a commercial for iHeartRadio airing the 2012 Christmas season that's just plain over the top. [[NoIndoorVoice "THIS ONE'S FOR YOU, RUDY!"]]
* The Wiki/TFWikiDotNet article on Shokaract, already a large ham in-fiction anyway, has every caption written in a similar hammy style, even when he's talking in BuffySpeak. Behold, the first caption:
-->'''Shokaract: MISERABLE INCONSEQUENTIAL WORMS, I AM SHOKARACT, MASTER OF TIME, SPACE, AND SELF-AGGRANDIZING HYPERBOLE!'''
