There are a number of recurring themes during Jonathan Coulton live performances.

Focus stealing[edit]

When Jonathan plays with Paul and Storm, there is often dialog about one of the performers stealing focus while the other is performing. The classic example is when Jonathan brought a video camera on stage while he performed backup vocals to Paul and Storm's "Nugget Man."

Rickrolls[edit]

Performances of Mr. Fancy Pants are often preceded or interrupted by portions of Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. The first performance of a rickroll was before Baby Got Back during Seattle, WA: 2008-04-26 with Paul, Storm, and Molly.

Soft rock medleys[edit]

When Jonathan performs Soft Rocked by Me with Paul and Storm, the middle of the song is often dedicated to a medley of spontaneously-chosen soft rock songs. A working list of list of soft rock medley songs is available.

Ukeleles[edit]

Jonathan is occasionally accompanied by a ukelele on songs such as Tom Cruise Crazy, Big Bad World One, and Creepy Doll.

Water[edit]

Water is often used as a comic device during shows. This was most notable as a recurring theme at Portland, OR: 2008-04-25, as evidenced by many of the videos from that night.
