In one scene, with Chuck's secretary and Chuck Barris in his office, the scene is labeled as taking place in LA, 1967. On a close up of the secretary, over her left shoulder, is the sheet music to Frank Mill's "Music Box Dancer", which was not written until 1974, and didn't become a hit single until 1978.

When Chuck Barris and Byrd are in Mexico City (according to a caption), we can see a Saguaro cactus in the background. This type of cactus can only be found in the Sonoran Desert in the states of Arizona, USA and Sonora, Mexico and is rarely found growing over 4,000 ft. Mexico City is not in the Sonoran Desert and is at 7,500 ft elevation.

When Chuck Barris is pitching The Gong Show in 1977, someone is drinking from a mug with an NBC logo that shows a peacock over a stylized "N". This logo did not exist until the fall of 1979, and was replaced with the current logo in 1986.

Chuck (Age 8): Hey Tuvia, you want to lick it?

Patricia: Insane asylums are filled with people who think they're Jesus or Satan. Very few have delusions of being a guy down the block who works for an insurance company.

Jim Byrd: He's a bad guy. He's one of the bad guys.

Why does Chuck switch the cups and then Patricia switches them back afterwards? Why wouldn't Patricia have the cup with the poison already nearest Chuck? Why does she switch them?
The poisoned cup was by Chuck in the first place. What Chuck does is switch the sugar marker, fooling Patricia into thinking he span the entire tray. (This means that the poisoned cup is still by Chuck.) She takes the bait, spins the entire tray, and repositions the sugar to where she thinks Chuck won't notice. But because she's the first to actually spin the tray, the poisoned cup is now in front of her.
