A hapless party animal who was whisked out of the past by a time warp to the present day, Dan subjects his dysfunctional roommates and neighbors to the cheesiest kitsch to come out of the 1980s. He also happens to live on the same street as the Cinema Snob.
The host of The Big Box, a sleazy late-night infomercial spokesman who introduces classic exploitation films in the titular "big box" (clamshell video cases) while flirting with his co-host, the Big Box Model.
The Cameo: Steve has has only one appearance, which lasted for only a few seconds, just because all of Linkara's characters had a counterpart among Brad's characters except Ensign Munroe.
The Eeyore: In his one appearance, Steve does not come across as a happy person.
'80s Dan Characters
See under Brad for Dan himself.
Rob the Robot
Dan's roommate and best friend (which isn't saying much), a Robotic Operating Buddy manufactured by Nintendo. Rob is an unrelenting jackass who openly lusts after Mrs. Crabtree in front of her husband. Voiced by Jake Norvell.
Actor Allusion: Jake also portrayed a character whose quest it was to make a ROB function (and proceeded to treat it like his own son) in Brad Jones' 2008 film Game Boys.
A lady in the present day who ran over Dan and Rob with her car shortly after they arrived from the past, then took them in and let them stay in her house. Dolly is the most mentally sound member of Dan's circle of friends... which again isn't saying much. She spends most of her time frustrated with Dan and Rob's wacky escapades. Played by Jillian Zurawski.
Dan, Rob, and Dolly's much-suffering neighbor who drops in with his wife once an episode. He and Mrs. Crabtree despise each other, but they put on a happy facade in front of the others. He still wants to murder Rob for hitting on his wife right in front of him, though. Played by Brian Lewis.
Jackie "the Sweenz" Roosevelt, former child star of the popular '80s sitcom "Birds in the Bush". The most popular guy around, who occasionally shows up for guest spots and cameos. Played by Steve Roth.
Bad Bad Acting: He slurs his lines and appears to be stoned at all times.
Dan's alleged best friend from the 1980s. An extremely sleazy individual who may be a serial killer and sex offender. Every Christmas, Dan goes on a quest to find him again. Played by David "Max Force" Gobble.
Comic Sutra: He shares his name with an extremely perverted sex act, "The Smitty", that was probably named after him.
One Steve Limit: His full name is Brian Irving, but since there's already another Brian, he's referred to by his last name or as "Virtual Boyd".
Straight Man and Wise Guy: In the Midnight Screenings videos, Irving is the wise guy to Jake's straight man. When they review movies together, the video usually ends with Irving saying something shockingly offensive and Jake reacting like a sane (and very angry) human being.
Pretty much demanded by viewers after seeing That's My Boy, where his rage was so great as to invoke Tranquil Fury viewers plead to Brad to let him see a good movie. Not too long after, he "guest starred" in the The Amazing Spider-Man video, where the first question was "Why are you here?"
Brutal Honesty: She really doesn't relent when describing things. For example, she described the plot of The Great Gatsby as 'So this dude falls in love with this vapid cunt of a woman, she fucks him over and he dies' and she started the review of That's My Boy with 'Pedophilia. Hey, everyone, guess what's funny? It's pedophilia.'
Fanservice: Appears in a bikini for a moment in The Cinema Snob Movie.
Only Sane Man: Especially when she's reviewing things alongside Jake.
Romance on the Set: She and Brian used to be married, but they divorced amicably. After that, she and Jake started dating.
Romance on the Set: Was married to the Snob himself; they're now divorced, but they're really good friends and she still appears in his videos.
Troll: Both in-universe and out-universe. In-universe, she pretended that her favourite movie was Moment By Moment to get the Snob to review it (when she'd never actually seen it), and out-universe, she spends most of her Midnight Screening of R.I.P.D with Jake making him angrier and angrier and laughing as he rages.
