* FundamentallyFunnyFruit: Bananas and pineapples are even funnier in the hands of seventeenth-century folk who've never seen them before. One man tries to eat a banana by biting into the side of it, unpeeled, and the Stuart-era Historical Masterchef contestant nearly panics at the suggestion that she serve a pineapple as food: "Are you out of your mind? You can't just ''eat pineapple!'' ...It's been on the lord of the manor's mantelpiece for weeks, he puts it there to show off how rich he is."



* InherentlyFunnyWords: To show his insanity, George III is particularly fond of throwing them around at random, especially "kangaroo" and "[[FundamentallyFunnyFruit banana]]."

* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Nudity or partial nudity is a common source of humor in the show. In one sketch, Queen Elizabeth and Lord Cecil keep informing a man the articles of clothing he's wearing have recently been made illegal, leaving him standing there with no shirt. In everything relating to the ancient Greek Olympics, including the song "Flame," the participants are naked as well.

* AgentPeacock: The producers concede that as a general rule, their versions of historical figures tend to "somehow..." end up more camp than the reality, including {{badass}} men. Sometimes it's much more overtly played with, as in the course of recasting the greatest flying aces of the Battle of Britain as a boy band.

** Along similar lines, another monastery raid sketch features a literate monk who calmly convinces the Vikings to spare him so he can record their {{badass}}ery for all time. ("Write about my biceps!") Unfortunately for the monk, the raiders quickly start arguing over who's ''the'' bravest and most fearsome, and they're still carrying axes...

** In one of the Ready, Steady, Feast sketches, the guest brings along weird food such as an elephants trunk and [[spoiler: the heart of King Louis XIV]]. The final item is a pound of sprouts.
