There are a number of recurring themes during [[Jonathan Coulton]] live performances.
Many many quality pionts there.
==Focus stealing==
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."

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