Tropes associated with this ham:
- Accent Upon The Wrong Syllable
- The Cast Show Off - Every time he gets to sing. Particularly in House of Fools, where his character Beef introduces himself each episode with a song, and he always draws out the last syllable.
- Jerk Ass - With the exception of Todd Rivers/Lucien Sanchez, all his characters are kinda dicks.
- Large Ham - If Tom Baker and BRIAN BLESSED had a son, this would be the result.
- Wimp Fight
