''The Peter Serafinowicz Show'' was a sketch show made by Peter Serafinowicz and several actors that you might recognise from other comedy shows. It lasted [[BritishBrevity seven episodes]], including a ChristmasSpecial aired a year after the rest of the series. Features several memorable sketches, such as the Brian Butterfield adverts for various services that he has come up with (including a karaoke bar or a diet plan) and looks very similar to well known injury compensation adverts. There are also parodies of ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' (Heads Or Tails, Which Hand Is It In?) and ''SherlockHolmes'', among other things.

** Played straight in the "Butterfield Detective Agency" sketch, where Butterfield repeatedly says "And that's not all" when describing his various disguises...until he runs out, and says "That's all."

* ActingForTwo: Most notably when Peter Serafinowicz plays all four of The Beatles at once.



* CavemenVsAstronautsDebate: We learn from Ringo Starr that towards the end of The Beatles' career as a group, they began to argue over more and more ridiculous things--including whether or not they should go to the toilet. Eventually, Yoko persuades John to give in, [[ToiletHumour and while on the toilet they write the world's first chart-topping song about taking a dump]].



* FakeAmerican: Peter's impersonations of various American celebrities, with rather convincing accents.



** The Kitchen Gun/Toilet Grenade adverts, which bear no resemblance to ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwVaLFbLFOM Cillit Bang]]''.
