* TokenWhite: the show had Dave Lamb in the cast to play the Token White Man, who was cast in role-reversal situations where he represented the equivalent of an Indian or Pakistani, who is [[ButtMonkey alone among white people in an unfamiliar culture]]. This was used to {{LampShade}} white British attitudes towards Asians, ranging from well-meaning ineptitude to outright racism. [[note]]Dave is better known as the mega-sarky narrator of foodie show ''Series/ComeDineWithMe''[[/note]].

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong - All the song parodies on the show.
** Averted with "Club Nirvana", where they had obviously managed to secure permission from George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley to cover Club Tropicana with parody lyrics; from memory, this also held for Hindi People (Common People by Pulp) and Let's Make Connections (I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys (I think)).

** This sketch is exceptional for the series in that it makes fun of a stereotype of white British, rather than British Asian, behaviour.
