    Journalist, presenter, broadcaster, husband, father, vigorous all-rounder – Alan Partridge – a man with a fascinating past and an amazing future. Gregarious and popular, yet Alan’s never happier than when relaxing in his own five-bedroom, south-built house with three acres of land and access to a private stream. But who is this mysterious enigma? Alan Gordon Partridge is the best – and best-loved – radio presenter in the region. Born into a changing world of rationing, Teddy Boys, apes in space and the launch of ITV, Alan’s broadcasting career began as chief DJ of Radio Smile....

    What did you like best about I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan? What did you like least?

    Steve Cougan can do no wrong in my eyes...From the Calf twins to AP, The Trip to his astonishing work on the Leveson enquiry, his comic genius is assured its place in British comedy history. I read I, Partridge and found it a little dry and was therefore drawn to the audio book read by the great man in order to get a real sense of the Partri-nesque quality that we admire so much. The listen was better than the read but I was still left with an empty feeling without seeing those quintessential AP mannerisms. I subsequently watched the AP BBC series again and realised that you really do need to see the man perform in order to give it true meaning.


    Would you recommend I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, watch it instead


    Which scene was your favorite?

    His university tales are very funny


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes
