Only Sane Man / Radio

  • Central to the style of comedy team Bob & Ray. As neither was a classic Straight Man, they played point/counterpoint between this and the Cloud Cuckoolander instead.
  • The Goon Show: Hercules Grytpype-Thynne fills this role, not that this is particularly difficult.
  • Old Harry's Game: At the start of the show, The Professor is the only major character who isn't completely incompetent and/or a vicious sadist. After he leaves, Edith takes his place.
