* DisposableSexWorker: He rips into the ''[[BritishNewspapers Daily Mail]]'' columnist Richard Littlejohn for displaying this attitude, imagining Littlejohn travelling the UK carving "Prostitute... not someone who works as a prostitute... P.S... I hate women, obviously... and I'm glad when they die. Yours, Richard Littlejohn... [[CountryMatters cunt]]" onto the graves of such victims.

* HypocriticalHeartwarming: Despite frequently making comedians such as Michael [=McIntyre=] the butt of many of his jokes, he has confessed that he often feels the need to come to their defence when non-comedians mock or belittle them around him, on the basis that comedy can be a very hard job and the fact that these comedians are able to make large numbers of people laugh means that they're doing something right and have ''some'' talent, even if what they do isn't particularly to his personal taste.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Discussed in his book ''How I Escaped My Certain Fate The Life and Deaths of a Stand-Up Comedian''. In his commentary on one of his routines, transcribed from a show that took place in Glasgow, he notes that the Scottish in particular tend to have a bit of a persecution complex about themselves and the English, and often look deeply for perceived insults and reasons to be offended, even if they were unintentional or minor. As an English comedian, he admits to initially finding this intimidating before hitting on the strategy of baldly insulting his Scottish audiences to their faces, but in a way that often used facts about Scotland that are obscure and little-known outside of the country. He gradually found that combination of deliberately pushing their specific buttons ''and'' demonstrating that he'd done his homework would actually earn their respect and laughs, even if grudgingly.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: Part of his StylisticSuck act is to blame the audience for being incapable of understanding his routine rather than consider the potential faults in the material. As one example, in ''If You Prefer a Milder Comedian, Please Ask for One'', he makes an IncrediblyLamePun regarding a one-legged pirate's response to a children's pirate-themed leisure centre ("The Pirate's Adventure Castle Activity Centre my foot!"), and then proceeds to lecture the audience for about five minutes on why they should have found it funnier as if they wouldn't have got the joke.
