Added DiffLines:

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: The 2017 season naturally made reference to Creator/DonaldTrump, like one story about Trump's outrageous demands for a state visit:
-->'''Adam''': His people have asked for a "full monty" visit. ({{Beat}} as audience laughs) [[LampshadeHanging I do not think that phrase means what you think it means.]]

* [[TokenWhite Token Non-Disabled Person]]: Josh.Josh for the first four years of the show. He then announced he would soon be getting glasses, so it's now closer to Token Bipedal Person.

''Series/TheLastLeg'' is a topical comedy show on the U.K's ChannelFour, which originally ran as part of the main coverage of the 2012 UsefulNotes/ParalympicGames, and proved so popular that it was spun off into its own show tackling the week in politics; two series are shown each year. The show is hosted by Australian comedian Adam Hills with co-hosts comedian Josh Widdicombe and journalist Alex Brooker, joined by a special guest each week (usually a comedian, although actors and politicians sometimes appear too).

* MadLibsCatchphrase: Adam introduces Josh and Alex with, "Joining me is the pride of Dartmoor, Josh Widdicombe, and the man who [comedic fact about Alex, usually beginning with "this week"], Alex Brooker". This has only been subverted once, in series 4 episode 5, when Alex was introduced as the pride of his hometown, and Josh was introduced as [[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} Dartmoor's first goth]].

to:

* LimitedWardrobe: Played for laughs with Greg Davies. When he made his second appearance on the show, he wore a red checkered shirt over a black t-shirt. Adam then pointed out that he had already worn that shirt days earlier on another show; and at the end, a Twitter user sent in a picture they'd taken with Greg also wearing that shirt.
* MadLibsCatchphrase: Adam introduces Josh and Alex with, "Joining me is the pride of Dartmoor, Josh Widdicombe, and the man who [comedic fact about Alex, usually beginning with "this week"], Alex Brooker". This has only been subverted once, twice; the first time in series 4 episode 5, when Alex was introduced as the pride of his hometown, Ashford, and Josh was introduced as [[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} Dartmoor's first goth]].goth]]; and the second in series 9 episode 5, when it was mentioned that Josh had called his mum to be careful of the escaped lynx in Dartmoor.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterTics:
** In the introductions to each show, Josh scratches his head after Adam says the show name. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in one episode, when Josh explains he feels he has to do it to have a good show.
** Josh has a tendency to sit in a figure four position with the bent leg under his other leg, which is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] whenever Alex impersonates him on the sofa.
** Any time impressions of Josh doing stand-up are done by Adam or Alex, the "teapot" pose (i.e. one hand holding the microphone, one hand on hip) is guaranteed to appear.
