''Series/TheLastLeg'' is a topical comedy show on the U.K's ChannelFour, which originally ran alongside the main coverage of the 2012 UsefulNotes/ParalympicGames. It returned for two series of weekly episodes in 2013 and 2014, and is in its sixth series as of early 2015. The show is hosted by Australian comedian Adam Hills with co-hosts comedian Josh Widdicombe and journalist Alex Brooker.

!!Tropes:
* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: Josh occasionally picks up Adam on pronouncing certain words differently due to his Australian accent. This started when Adam pronounced data as d-''ah''-ta.
* AcceptableEthnicTargets: Lots of jokes directed at Adam for being Australian, especially after Australia's poor performance at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
* ButtMonkey: Adam, Alex, and Josh have all had their fair share of this trope.
* CatchPhrase:
** Adam Hills has "You're being a ''dick''!"
** Adam always introduces Josh as "the pride of Dartmoor". The only time this has been averted was series 4 episode 5, when Josh was introduced as [[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} Dartmoor's first goth]].
** Adam closes each show with "see you next week for the next leg".
* HoYay: Alex and Josh, PlayedForLaughs. Amongst other things, they've kissed on screen and been shown in bed together twice (once as part of a parody of an ad by the [[UsefulNotes/AustralianPolitics Australian Sex Party]], once as part of the same sketch in which they kissed).
* ItMakesSenseInContext: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Josh in series 6, in the episode following Deputy Prime Minister UsefulNotes/NickClegg's appearance.
--> '''Josh:''' There was quite a lot of articles about The Last Leg last week, because Alex had interviewed the Deputy Prime Minister, and there was one in The Telegraph. It was all this stuff about Nick Clegg, and then - out of nowhere, no context - just a paragraph that said, "[[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} And then the Deputy Prime Minister got a melon and threw it at the disabled Alex Brooker, who cut it with a blade on his leg]]." People must have been reading that going, "What the fuck is going on? What kind of TV show are they making?"
* NWordPrivileges: Part of the show's raison d'etre, to say things about disability no non-disabled person could.
* {{Portmanteau}}: Josh + Alex = Jalex. This came about after Josh and Alex's first kiss in series 4, when people on Twitter started to refer to them as Jalex. It has since been used by the show's official [[https://twitter.com/TheLastLeg/status/571440075696939008 Twitter]] [[https://twitter.com/TheLastLeg/status/571443365830651904 feed]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zob4MpeIoQA mentioned by Adam]].
* SceneryCensor: Adam has one in series 6, when he's shown bouncing naked on a trampoline with a dog covering him up [[note]]The sketch is a ShoutOut to Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, who revealed he often bounces naked on his trampoline with a dog[[/note]].
* ShoutOut: The show always ends with a skit that relates to one or more topics discussed in the episode.
* TakeThat: Nigh-constantly to UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin. And Music/JustinBieber. And many others.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Anytime Adam launches into a tirade starting with "If (x) then you're being a dick!".
* [[TokenWhite Token Non-Disabled Person]]: Josh.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Adam, Alex, and Josh will make jokes at each others' expenses.
