* ActorAllusion:
** David Cross' father is from Leeds.
** Kayvan Novak turns up playing a bomb disposal expert.
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Guy!]]:
** The show stars [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Tobias Fünke]] as Todd and [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment GOB]] as his boss Brent.
** Dave might be better known as Neil from {{The Inbetweeners}}, and Neil's "bent" dad (otherwise known as [[Series/TheThickOfIt Julius Nicholson MP]]) pops up in the first series too.
** Todd's dad is [[TwinPeaks Dr Jacoby]].
** [[Series/ThePeterSerafinowiczShow Peter Serafinowicz]] is an angry cyclist, [[Series/{{Spaced}} Brian Topp]] is Lord Mountford, [[Film/FourLions Waj]] is a member of an ''anti''-terrorist squad, [[Series/TheThickOfIt Blinky Ben Swain]] is a newsreader, [[Series/TheITCrowd Jen's hyperactive friend]] is the head chef at The Molecule, and [[Series/PeepShow Darryl the Racist]] is a rugby mascot. Overall, the show is the rather surreal result of a couple of American comedians being unleashed into a world populated by practically every understated background character actor to appear in a British sitcom.
** Doug Whitney is played by director Spike Jonze.
* TheOtherMarty: Dave was originally played by [[Series/BeingHuman Russell Tovey]] in the pilot, but wasn't available when the series went into production. He was replaced by Blake Harrison, and all of Dave's scenes had to be reshot.
* ViralMarketing: To promote the series, IFC created a fake website for Thunder Muscle. The URL is now defunct, but the site has been archived [[https://web.archive.org/web/20101030075504/http://www.thundermuscle.net/ here]].
