"Now, I don't want to get off on a rant here..."
People ranting about their political opinions, religious beliefs or similar usually don't intend to be entertaining. Some, however, have realized that serious messages can't be distinguished from parodies anyway—so why not make the most of it?
And thus, some comedians, propagandists, and other characters chose to present their opinions with a lot of attitude, making rants designed to be entertaining while still communicating a serious message.
Not to be confused with The Rant, the writer's comments alongside a webcomic.
Live Action TV
- Coupling usually had one Once A Series, when Straight Man and Author Avatar Steve would really break into stride and dish out an epic rant leaving every other character in stunned silence.
- In Scrubs, Dr. Cox likes to incorporate actual points inside long funny rants.
- In Order of the Stick, Belkar used to do this, using Refuge in Audacity to get away with having evil values.
"...of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong."
