Jeremy is a big kid. A lazy man with big ideas about himself and his future music career. Touchy and self-aggrandising, Jeremy is never far from doing something he will regret. He is clearly the loose cannon of the partnership: a lazy waster with dodgy friends, who dreams of becoming a musician, but can never get his act together, or often even get up in the morning! Although vain, idle and delusional, Jez is basically a nice bloke.

Mark.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: His bullying of Mark only gets truly nasty tasteless the moment he insults his mother.mother.
* {{Foil}}: To Mark. Both are overconfident, manipulative, egocentric, and have their sights set on the same woman. The only critical difference is that Jeff is loud and extroverted while Mark is withdrawn and neurotic.



* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: He's abrasive and arrogant at the outset of the series and hasn't changed one iota by the finale.
* JerkJock: He fills this role in the show, with Mark being the hapless dweeb he relentlessly picks on.

to:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Although he's always making mean-spirited jokes at Mark's expense, Jeff hates being the subject of jokes himself. When Dobby makes fun of him in the "Jeff's Doing a Joke" sequence, he takes it as a slight against his ego and sullenly withdraws from the conversation.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: He's abrasive Jeff is precisely as churlish and arrogant at the outset as he appears. He's sometimes supportive of the series and hasn't changed one iota by the finale.
Sophie, but it's suggested that his ulterior motive for doing this [[EvilIsPetty is to spite Mark]], which implies he doesn't actually care about her.
* JerkJock: He fills this role in the show, with Mark being the hapless dweeb nerd he relentlessly picks on.



* PervertedSniffing: Apparently has the nickname of "Seat Sniffer" around the office. It goes with his JerkJock personality.
* RomanticFalseLead
* SmugSmiler
* SmugSnake: Whenever he's trying to denigrate Mark. As Dobbie observes, Jeff doesn't realize that [[LoserProtagonist someone as lame and neurotic as Mark is an easy target]] and that [[DirtyCoward endlessly belittling him isn't very impressive or manly]], particularly how as soon as he comes across someone who's not as socially lame such as Jez or Johnson he instantly sucks up to them.

* RomanticFalseLead
RomanticFalseLead: Talks a lot about being a lady's man but ultimately loses Sophie to Mark.
* SmugSmiler
SmallNameBigEgo: For all his braggadocio, [[NotSoDifferent Jeff is just another lowly office drone working the same dead-end job as Mark]]. The reason for his constant aggression towards Mark seems to be that he himself is insecure and wants to make himself look good by picking on a more obvious loser than himself.
* SmugSmiler: The picture says it all.
* SmugSnake: Whenever he's trying to denigrate His attitude towards Mark. As Dobbie observes, Notably, when Jeff doesn't realize that [[LoserProtagonist someone as lame and neurotic as Mark is an easy target]] and that [[DirtyCoward endlessly belittling him isn't very impressive or manly]], particularly how as soon as he comes across someone who's not as socially lame such as talking to less dweeby people like Jez or Johnson he instantly drops his obnoxious alpha male routine and sucks up to them.

* ClosetGeek: Mark has shades of this. In series 1, Jeremy finds a fantasy model painting magazine hidden in his cupboard (which, of course, he mistakes for porn). When he meets Dobby, he's revealed to play a WoW-like game called [[BlandNameProduct Fantasy Warquest]]. Finally, when entering a geek shop with Gerard, he monologues about not feeling as awkward "since he bought his first twenty sided die".
