Oft-forgotten gems from the Alan Partridge canon

The Late Satoru Iwata

Quote from: LordMorgan on February 10, 2024, 09:57:00 PMIn mid morning matters, Alan's introduction to Daniel Longford, the tech entrepreneur played by Darren Boyd always tickles me

Boyd continually picking up the microphone.

I enjoyed, but found odd, the repeat of the same joke from interview with the Duchess of Stranraer in KMKY.

The one where Alan can't take a hint that he's not invited to the clique, despite the Duchess/Entrepreneur laughing at the suggestion like it's a joke.


It's handled in a different enough way to stand as its own thing, I think. Plus, it seems like the sort of thing that would happen to Alan - a lower middle class clod with negligible social graces and a huge chip on his shoulder - a LOT.


(also, the original scene was around twenty years old at that point, you can sort of repeat yourself after that long, I think. It would be weird if you didn't)

They do also have a similar interaction with Miles Jupp's character in Scissored Isle, so the theory is a habit of his checks out.

"The tuna-and-sweetcorn filling explodes in my grateful mouth"


Now working through KMKY with the child. There's quite of lot of extra stuff in the DVD release that was cut from the screened versions, if my memory of those is correct.

But for this thread: "A French hidden buttocks agenda".


I honestly think the whole of MMM is just genius

It might me my favourite Alan

Helped of course by Tim Keys wonderful sidekick Simon

I was in tears when Alan mangled the whole
Men are from mars
Woman are from Moon

Simons wee face. (THE moon)

I also like how he fucks up Eleanor Rigby
Calls or "helenor Rigby , by Beatles

 Simons wee face cracks me up

Here you go. IAP-era Alan for another six hours.
Its Partridge alright but it isnt IAP S3.
I need Post Oasthouse live action, i'm liable to throw my monkey in the sea.

I presume it's fully improv, which is kind of impressive. Coogan needs his other writers of course.

good times

Paraphrasing but "you won't pee people off, and also you won't look like a cunt" about middle aged cyclists wearing lycra in Oast House 3 had me cackling last night.
