* BerserkButton: Johnny Nice Painter is a perfectly harmless man painting watercolours (and apparently narrating them for a tv show) right up to the moment he happens to mention the colour black. Then he quickly [[MadArtist sinks into depressive darkness]] leading to insane ranting and smashing things.

* CurseCutShort: The main joke in the sketches where Simon Day and Mark Williams play builders on a high-rise--all the sketches end on something like "And was he? Was he F-"
** Billy Bleach was talking about people he knew with parents of different nationalities and how that affected their personalities. He concluded with a man whose mother was French and whose father was French. "He's a c-"

* MoodDissonance: The "Rowley Birkin QC" monologues are generally unintelligible but very funny anecdotes. One, however, seems to be about a woman he was in love with during WW2, and who apparently died. The whole scene is melancholy, and the final line "I held her in my arms... (long pause)... I'm afraid I was very drunk." is unutterably sad.

* RunningGag: Very many within the sketches, and also a few that crossed over between different ones, such as "Cheesey Peas" (which started out as 'an advertisement [[OopNorth for Northern types]] before getting a Chanel 9 version, a posh version, being mentioned in Brilliant Kid's rambling monologue, etc.)

* VomitIndiscretionShot: Part 2 of the Last Fast Show Ever special features four of the cast playing annoying young people in a Cheesy Peas advert. At the end of the episode, we see them again, and it is obvious the Cheesy Peas has done something to them, because one of them is crying, one keeps rushing out of the room to vomit, and another is doubled over puking in full view.

* FanDumb: Invoked in the case of Archie the Pub Bore, specifically the Monomaniac variety. ''Every'' conversation he butts into he will ultimately turn into a lecture about Frank Sinatra.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In the Dave Angel sketches, Shirley is often doing the exact thing Dave is warning against in the background whilst he is talking to the camera e.g. When Dave is warning against using aerosols, Shirley can be seen using an aerosol in the background.
