Listening to the whole podcast, I think he was on drugs. He gets up to a full on coke rant when he’s reminiscing about his brother telling him to buy “Hong Kong Garden”

"Stephen Hawking" laughing at Alan's joke on the radio play in the first episode of MMM series 2 nearly killed me yesterday. Choked on me Shreddies.

Good Christ... there aren't words for how fucking tedious Marc Maron is. The first 20 minutes of him twatting on and fucking on (about being 'open minded'... if he'd spent 20 minutes talking about being unselfaware it couldn't be more ironic) were unbearable.

And then here comes Steve Coogan, who hasn't just mid-Atlantic'd his accent, he's shifted his whole attitude presenting this 'tickle me' version of British/Irish culture to this cunt.

It wouldn't be so bad if it was just the accent. I guess he knows that Americans can't listen to British people speaking how they normally speak, so adopt that Briddish accent.

Do we know if this is a half-hour one-off or a series?

edit: six-part series, wicked.

From MMM to Sidekick Simon…

"WELL 'AV CHANGED ME MIIIIIIIND!"

It's another great example of him slipping into a Manc accent, but this time presumably for comic effect, as it's not even the same as his native Manc accent (I'm from there and easily pick up on the variations).

There's other examples I've picked up on over the years that I'm not sure are intentional or not, eg he might pronounce GLASS and GRASS in the northern (ie correct way :) instead of GLARSS and GRARSS as someone raised in the south would.

Just been watching Coogan on The One Show, they showed the immediate aftermath of Alan shooting Forbes McAllister from KMKYWAP, and I love that the floor manager guy comes over and really bawls him out

"It's like they say: give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Give him a fishing rod-..."

"Yeah, he'll come back the next day saying 'you know that fishing rod you gave me?', 'go on...', 'can I have another?' *sigh* 'what happened to the one I gave you?', 'oh I sold it', 'let me guess, to buy some skag?', 'no to buy some fish, I was hungry,' 'did it not occur to you to use the fishing rod to catch some fish?' 'oh, I haven't got a permit and I don't know how to get one', 'Google it!'".

"When did this happen?"

The delivery on “occur” always cracks me up.

Hi Susan. I was a bit bored so I dismantled my Corby Trouser Press. I can’t put it back together again. Will that show up on my bill?

And he mispronounces cache as cachet, which makes it funnier.

After a cringeworthy snog-sesh with Angela…

I often catch my dog excitedly chewing a toy or what-not and think of this line.

For those that have the link I've just put the stand up bits from The Cream Of British Comedy in the audio Partridge folder, pretty sure that's everything I have now.
