** Footage of an American pastor using the words 'Mister Long-Legged Mack Daddy' to describe UsefulNotes/BarackObama was used in the second series whenever the host mentioned Obama (along with a comical apology). This was spoofed with a clip of Howard himself using a similar title when UsefulNotes/NickClegg was mentioned. The latter is actually used as a FanNickname (Mister Long-Legged Cleggy-Weggy, which managed to become the top trending {{Twitter}} topic in the UK on the day of the 2010 Election).

** And, just to make things all the more awesome, at the end of Series Eight, Russell had his Mystery Guest ([[spoiler:BrianBlessed]]) recite both the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kLgkN4HGrs Liquid Ass]]" and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEf5VFKplzw "Ain't nobody got time for that!"]] gags. As with just about anything involving the man's voice, it was quite the spectacle to behold.

* SpecialGuest: The Mystery Guests usually include one every series who is a celebrity (usually someone who was a big star around the time of Russell's childhood or teenage years). This has included [[spoiler: Jet from ''Series/{{Gladiators}}'', former footballer John Barnes, and BrianBlessed]].

* BlackComedy; They get away with far more here than on ''MockTheWeek.'' You'd be forgiven for thinking it was ''Frankie Boyle's Good News''.

** Bigotry tends to annoy him and bring out his more vicious jokes.
** American gun politics absolutely enrage him, particularly after a gun massacre, leading to this memorable remark:
--> Put down the guns you redneck [[KissingCousins cousin]] [[PrecisionFStrike fuckers!]]



* FriendToAllChildren: is particularly good with children, which is probably why Sandy Hook and the like particularly pissed him off.



* SadClown: hints at this in his brief off-the-cuff rap, saying that it's his job to make jokes about the misery and the absurdity to make it better.
* SelfDeprecation: More often than not, he takes the piss out of himself.



** Usually directs pretty epic ones at American Republicans and American gun politics, the nature of which is a particularly major BerserkButton for him.



* WholesomeCrossdresser: Russel himself for reenactions and some cutaway gags.

** [[CallingYourOrgasms "Sounds like what this guy yells out when he cums!"]]



** [[ToiletHumor "It sounds like X having a tricky shit!"]]



* ShoutOUt: One story was about a stolen [[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]] statue being recovered on a beach, leading Russell to guess that it had a ''really'' wild night. Cue a BingeMontage with the E.T. statue InTheStyleOf the end credits of ''Film/TheHangover''.

* RuleOfThree:
** One story is about a live rugby broadcast somehow getting interrupted with porn, which is immediately spoofed by Russell ''interrupting his own show'' with an S&M clip ''starring himself''. Cue Russell going "IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney". Then they do it a second time ("I was a bit older but I still needed the money.") and the third clip instead has Russell replaced by [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Asian man he outsourced part of his work to,]] [[ButtMonkey the one time he's NOT the sub.]]

** That little red and black Hoover vaccuum cleaner that gets put in one ridiculous situation after another.

* UnexpectedCharacter: It's easy to forget that YouTube is responsible for a lot of the clips used, leading up to [=YouTubers=] like Glozell and Shay Carl getting airtime.
