This thread is for a man that has been a journalist, presenter, a broadcaster, a husband and father, a company director, a vigorous all rounder with a fascinating past and an amazing future. Gregarious, popular, a philanthropist but never happier when he's relaxing in his own 5-bedroom self built house with three acres of land and access to a private stream. But who the hell is this mysterious enigma? This mysterious enigma is Alan Partridge.
Almost 25 years of gracing our TV screens and radio waves and proving to be a cultural pillar and cornerstone of British Comedy and yet he hasn't got a ruddy thread on boards. He has just finished season 2 of Mid Morning Matters With Alan Partridge (MMMWAP) which of course was 10 on 10 and he looks to continue for a long time yet. What are your favourite Alanisms, scenes and characters? What is your favourite King and Car combination? (Henry 8th - Range Rover, Vogue 4.6, Petrol, Sage Green with a Saddle Tan interior).
I realise he has his haters (naysayers) and is quite divisive but hes not the type to let that bother him, just water off a ducks back really and anyway, hes far better than Eamonn Holmes.
So let battle commence!
I watched the first four shows off season one last night.
Not my words, Michael...the words of Shakin' Stevens.
Lynn, some of these people have come from STOKE.
I love Alan. His radio shows from the early nineties are worth checking out if anyone hasn't heard them before. I listened to them about a year ago and loved it. I must check them out again.
His first ever meeting with Dan was epic too. You can imagine his glee at discovering Dan reads the Daily Mail, drives a Lexus and wears Lynx
