'''[+SOME ACTORS AND CHARACTERS [[SelfDemonstratingArticle BELIEVE]] THAT THE BEST WAY TO TALK IS TO TALK ''LOUDLY''. THEY DON'T RESTRICT YELLING TO WHEN THEY ARE ANGRY, UPSET OR AT THE BOTTOM OF A WELL CALLING FOR HELP -- THEY SHOUT ''ALL THE TIME''!+]'''

'''[+DIFFERS SLIGHTLY FROM [[ChewingTheScenery CHEWING THE SCENERY]] IN THAT IT'S NOT THE ACTING THAT'S CRANKED UP TO MAXIMUM -- JUST THE VOLUME.+]'''

'''[+SOME-+]''' ahem, some categories of television shows seem more prone to this type of acting than others:
* Programs going for [[DarkerAndEdgier dark and edgy]], where the constant shouting is supposed to reinforce how permanently angry/edgy/completely bonkers the character is. {{Police procedural}}s in particular are prone to this.
* Children's programs with young actors who constantly shout at each other and EMPHASIZE every WORD they THINK is IMPORTANT! -- the audio equivalent of BoldInflation.
* Adult presenters on children's TV who assume their young ViewersAreMorons.
* The occasional infomercial, especially if it's by Creator/BillyMays.
** Or someone else trying to be Creator/BillyMays.
** Or the UK's equivalent, Barry Scott.
* {{BRIAN BLESSED}}! So loud he deserves his own category.
** He ''has'' his [[BoisterousBruiser own category]].
** He IS his [[Film/ThePrincessBride own category]].
** "... If they're not laughing, it's not comedy. Well either that, or you're just not '''[+SPEAKING LOUDLY ENOUGH!+]'''"

In extreme circumstances, a character will become so loud that the show can be watched only with the volume turned down, making it a problem when the quieter characters speak. In the worst case scenario, the character will become such a headache that the viewer might be put off watching. These are the shows that you can't have on in the background when you're talking to someone; you'll be drowned out.

Can be justified if the actor in question has had a stage career, where voice projection is critical, or if the show is being taped in front of an audience where people in the back row might otherwise have trouble hearing what's happening on stage. However, the fact that many shows with an audience manage to achieve an "indoor voice" suggest that the trope can be avoided.

See also:
* CapsLock, effectively the written form of this.
* CuteButCacophonic, when characters you wouldn't expect are this, hence it's often used in comedies.
* GaleForceSound, where the yelling is so loud, it actually causes strong winds.
* LargeHam, who probably lacks an indoor voice, but gets away with it by virtue of sheer charisma.
* MakeMeWannaShout, where someone with No Indoor Voice uses volume as a weapon (or has to deal with people who take advantage of this).
* PunctuatedForEmphasis, where, in addition to shouting, the person also adds an exclamation mark after each word .
* SuddenlyShouting, which uses a deliberate contrast between normal volume and shouting '''[+FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT!+]'''

[[folder:COMEDY!!!]]
* Sam Kinison was the epitome of this trope ALL THE F***ING TIME FOR NO REASON! AHHHHHH!
* Lewis Black only yells when he thinks something is mindbogglingly idiotic. So, every second PUNCHLINE.
* In Dane Cook's routine regarding the horrors of working the drive-thru at Burger King, he asks why some people feel the need to YELL at the speaker.
-->'''Customer''': ''WHOPPER!''\\
'''Dane''' (on headset, recoiling in pain): Um, sir --\\
'''Customer:''' ''WHOPPER, NO ONION! '''[++LARGE FRIES!!!++]'''''\\
'''Dane''': Look, I'm bleeding from the ears, [[AlPacino Pacino!]] Let's calm down!
* Gilbert Gottfried
* Creator/BobcatGoldthwait in his early stand-up days. Not so much nowadays.
** Mr. Goldthwait has an impressive trick: He somehow gets all the ''excitement'' of yelling into his voice without actually increasing the ''volume'' much.

[[folder:COMIC STRIPS!!!]]
* In an intentionally comedic example, this was the entire joke of the minor character Loud Howard from the ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' comic. For the TV series, he was combined with fellow minor character "Nervous Ted" and made into a supporting cast member. The character was constantly shouting about trivial and sometimes bizarre worries as if they were significant.
* This is the gimmick behind the ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' character Charlotte Braun.
* Bullhorn in ''SpotTheFrog'' has a nearly deaf girlfriend for this reason.

[[folder:FILMS -- ANIMATION!!!]]
* The White Witch in the animated version of ''[[TheChroniclesOfNarnia The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe]]'' is about 70% this trope, 30% SnakeTalk.
* Many are like this, especially Speedy in SparkPlugEntertainment's ''WesternAnimation/ACarsLifeSparkysBigAdventure''.
* The Beast from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is always yelling/roaring, at least until he smartens up a bit. '''"[[MemeticMutation GET OOOOUUUUUUUTTTTTTT]]"'''
* ''Film/{{Beowulf}}'': "I! AM! BEOWULF!"
* ''TheIncredibles'': '''[[IncomingHam BEHOLD, THE UNDERMINER!]]'''

[[folder:POETRY!!!]]
* The title character in W.S. Gilbert's 1866 poem "King Borria Bungalee Boo".
-->''King Borria Bungalee Boo\\
Was a man-eating African swell;\\
His sigh was a hullabaloo,\\
His whisper a horrible yell --\\
A horrible, horrible yell!''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:PUPPET SHOWS!!!]]
* The Guy Smiley character from ''Series/SesameStreet'' has this problem. There is one skit where he's doing a news piece in the jungle and the guide is telling him to keep quiet so as not to scare the rare animals, and the third time he does it he says, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7m4whqRCJE WELL THIS IS AS QUIET AS I CAN TALK!]]"
* In the French satirical show ''Series/LesGuignolsDeLInfo'', the puppet caricaturing [=JoeyStarr=], a French [[GangstaRap rapper who had some trouble with justice]], always seems to be yelling angrily -- even when perfectly calm.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:THEATRE!!!]]
* John Adams in ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' has a tendency to express his opinions at a very high volume, to the displeasure of his fellow Congressmen.
-->'''Franklin:''' Softly, John, your voice is hurting my foot.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:WEB ANIMATION!!!]]
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner''
** Strong Mad. Strong Bad lampshades this at one point in the [=SBEmail=] "The Facts" by asking him to keep it down, to which Strong Mad replies, "I CAN BE THE QUIETEST MOUSE. I LIVE IN THE QUIETEST HOUSE!". "No Volume Control" indeed!
** Also Crack Stuntman. Oddly, the character he voices doesn't have that problem.
* Caboose misses the point of an argument between Church and Wash in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'':
-->'''Church:''' Why didn't you tell me that it was taking technology from the Freelancers?\\
'''Wash:''' Why didn't ''you'' tell me that Wyoming was on the ship?\\
'''Caboose:''' And why didn't someone give me something to yell about?
