A perpetually cantankerous ex-convict who performs as a circus clown under the terms of his prison work release program, despite his dislike of both the job and people in general.
Actually Pretty Funny: Even some of Homey's angriest rants will make him laugh. Case in point, one time had him comparing himself to Kunta Kinte and he could barely finish it without stifling a chuckle.
Angry Black Man: A rather justified example: his unspecified crime was implied to be a frame up and sent him to prison for some time and led to him becoming a reluctant circus clown.
Self-Mutilation Demonstration: He has no powers (though is heavily implied to have some degree of invincibility or an offscreen Healing Factor), but frequently uses himself as a voluntary target for his examples of the dangers involved with certain activities.
Early Installment Weirdness: In his early sketches, he still had hair (all the explosions eventually burned what was left of it off), and his demonstrations were somehow less destructive (i.e., he was left in one piece after the inevitable explosion).
Large Ham: Would you expect anything less from a character portrayed by Jim Carrey?
Slasher Smile: He always displays them, no matter how much damage is done or how badly injured he is.
Stuff Blowing Up: Whenever Bill is onscreen, you can guarantee whatever building he's in won't be left standing by the end, thanks to his pyromaniac tendencies.
Two Camp Gay critics who host the Men On... series. They cover everything from film to art.
Catchphrase: They always say the phrase "Hated it!" to express disdain for a particular book, film, show or piece of art, especially if it has to do with women.
Effeminate Misogynistic Guy: In spite of being gay, they both despise women and usually call them a variety of colorful names like "fish" and "scallop". They also dismiss any work that heavily features women with a "Hated it!"
Nice Hat: Or rather, headpieces worn by Blaine, be it a decoration in the forms of a bucket of popcorn, a football or even a skillet and spatula.
A neighborhood busybody who is quick to observe and comment on the various eccentric and dysfunctional characters she encounters.
Breaking the Fourth Wall: If not an outright Fourth-Wall Observer. The majority of her skits have her treating the viewer as a neighborhood acquaintance, though nobody else seems to notice them. Only a handful of skits defied this, due to having actual characters to play off, and even then, she still broke the fourth wall in one of them.
The Friend Nobody Likes: Implied: whenever she's out in public, people either treat her with indifference or disdain.
Gossipy Hens: Downplayed, as it's just her doing the gossiping, but she's just as effective.
Just don't say nothin' bad about Ms. Jenkins near her (though even that doesn't stop her from gossiping about her either, usually with the most vicious gossip).
She claims to be above her neighbors and acquaintances, even claiming that she works to better herself, but is just as dim and untrustworthy as them. A running gag is her having nicer things (diamond necklace, long hair, etc.) that ends up being destroyed due to her wearing them while cooking and burning them up.
The hosts of the Black Like You talk show. In spite of being Black, they more so carry on like racist White men.
Comically Missing the Point: Neither of them realize how racist they come off or even when racism is being displayed towards them. Case in point, a country club owner thought that they would be "Jesse fans" (meaning Jesse Jackson), but they assumed he meant Jesse Helms and thought that Jackson was "the brother who kept the nose".
Fanboy: Both of them are huge fans of journalist Bryant Gumbel and comedian Byron Allen.
"Wrote a song about it. Like to hear it? Here it goes..."
Comically Missing the Point: He doesn't seem to realize how damaging and hurtful his lyrics are (he is an old man). During his first skit where he sung at the funeral of a "friend" of his, by the time he was finished singing, the angry relatives of the man tried to charge at him and he believed that they were giving him a standing ovation.
Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His brutally honest lyrics even once sunk a potential candidate's campaign due to singing about him being an insensitive tightwad and a thief.
