The Tao of Alan:
"I know lying is wrong, but if the elephant man came in now in a blouse with some make up on, and said "how do I look?" Would you say, bearing in mind he's depressed and has respiratory problems, would you say "go and take that blusher off you mis-shapen headed elephant tranny"? No. You'd say "You look nice... John"" -- Alan Gordon Partridge
Alan Partridge is my comedy sherpa, my spiritual counsel, and just a solid bloke who never hesitates to help his fellow man*. From his beginnings as a DJ on Norfolk Radio, to his brief stint as the chat host of Knowing Me Knowing You, to his self published memoir I, Partridge--Alan has never dumbed down to his audience, he only dumbs UP!
AP (as he is known as to friends and commoners) is a baron of industry and the true king of all media. His empire ranges from radio, television, publishing, event planning and now film. Check out the trailer to his debut feature: ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA!
For those new to the omnibus of AP I give you five reasons that you must let Alan into your heart and up in your guts!
