* 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.

* WriteWhoYouKnow:
** Simon Day admits to basing "Competitive Dad" on a man he saw at a public swimming pool, who challenged his children to a race and then swam away at top speed leaving them to struggle behind him.
*** This inspiration formed part of the very last Competitive Dad sketch, where we see a video recording of Competitive Dad's own father doing it to him as a child.
** Rowley Birkin QC was based on a similarly incomprehensible (English) person Paul Whitehouse met in Iceland - although his style also owes something to ventriloquist Ray Alan's puppet Lord Charles.
** One of Arabella Weir's characters is a woman who suggests something to a group of arguing men, only for them to totally ignore her and hear the suggestion [[GladIThoughtOfIt as though one of them had made it]]. This, as Whitehouse and Higson wryly realised on reading the first sketch, was her commentary on how they tended to treat her in script meetings.
** Insecure Woman was suggested to Weir by the others, based on herself.
** Swiss Toni was apparently based on several different real car salesmen.
** The Suit You Tailors were based on a real person, but oddly enough, a bank manager rather than a tailor.
