He’s back! Stand-up comedian, best-selling author and chat show supremo, the lovable Chatty Man and Tooth Fairy himself... Alan Carr is back on tour in autumn 2011 with a brand new live comedy show, ‘Spexy Beast’, that will also be filmed live for DVD.After a few years of rubbing shoulders with A-list celebrities on his very own chat show, award-winning Alan Carr returns to his stand-up roots in his first major comedy tour and Live DVD in four years.
Alan Partridge is the C-list celebrity from hell: a sacked chat-show host determined to claw his way back to the heady heights of the B-list by any means necessary. Steve Coogan's characterisation of the monstrous Partridge is a masterful composition of misplaced ambition, frustrated sexuality, brutal insensitivity and pathos.
Steve Coogan's legendary chat show host and broadcaster finally receives the big screen treatment in this comedy directed by Declan Lowney. Occupying a career stasis-defining role as a mid-morning DJ on North Norfolk Digital Radio, Alan Partridge (Coogan)'s hopes for one last shot at the big time suffer a severe setback when it emerges that his employers have been taken over by a giant media conglomerate. Alan soon finds himself back in the spotlight, however, when newly-sacked fellow DJ Pat Farrell (Colm Meaney) returns to the studio with a shotgun and begins taking hostages. Called in by the police to act as a hostage negotiator, can Britain's most famous Toblerone addict turn the tables and finally save the day?
The comedy icon returns to mark the 25th anniversary of his BBC debut, starring five-time BAFTA winner and two-time Oscar nominee Steve Coogan. Due to the sudden illness of its regular host, BBC One show This Time welcomes Alan Partridge as its guest presenter. The show sees Alan handed a career lifeline - the chance to stand in as co-host on a nightly magazine show. His return to primetime television after his 90s chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You was cancelled after a guest was fatally shot on air. This Time is a heady mix of consumer affairs, current affairs, viewer interaction, highbrow interview and lightweight froth; very much the sweet spots for a man whose broadcasting style has been described as ‘equidistant between chitchat and analysis’. Joining Alan in the studio is co-presenter Jennie Gresham (Susannah Fielding) and Tweet reader-outer Simon ‘formerly Sidekick Simon’ Denton (Tim Key). Special Feature: Test Shoot
The name's Alan, Alan Partridge. They say the art of conversation is dead but I've rescued the drowning chat. Years ago I asked the BBC if I could host my own show and they said, "Alan you can't. It won't work." I said, "I can and it will." I have. It does (work that is). This is it. Listen. Learn and Listen some more. Ah-haah! Steve Coogan is Alan Partridge, "the chat show host from hell", in two programmes from the cult radio comedy of the 90s which gave rise to the BBC television series of the same name. 1.

Steve Coogan is Alan Patridge, the chat show host from hell, in two episodes from his original BBC Radio 4 series. In the first of two cringe-inducing episodes, Alan meets 'Britain's greatest living novelist', Lawrence Camley, and tackles him on the subject of not winning the Nobel prize for Literature. Feminist therapist Ali Tennant demonstrates her work on Alan, with surprising results, whilst a vile slur is cast upon Adam Wells, 'Carnaby Street's Mr Boutique', when he attempts to promote his new fizzy drink Vegina. The second episode finds Alan augmented by an American supermodel co-host as they broadcast live from Las Vegas. Their guests include Hollywood star couple Sally Hoff and Conrad Knight, who persuade Alan to join them in a Las Vegas Medley. Next on the bill is New York Jewish comedian Bernie Rosen, who doesn't quite deliver the goods as far as Alan is concerned, and finally the host with the most challenges professional gambler Jack 'the Black Cat' Colson in a game of roulette at a great personal cost.
