Alan Partridge

1

Just finished his autobiography. Absolutely hilarious in parts and very loyal to the stories in I'm Alan Partridge and KMKY. I read the ebook but the audiobook is actually read by the man himself which would add another dimension to it. Ill probably get round to listening to all 6 hours some day. Check it out.

Have it from christmas must get started over easter

Yeah, check it out man. Easy read and you'll fly through it. They absolutely nail the character. Which is good cos they created him.

Listened to the audiobook in the car over a period of a week or two going back and forward to work.

Just brilliant. Must give it another go soon. Think I was just so overcome by excitement of the fact that Alan Partridge himself was reading his book to me personally that I probably didn't take a lot of it in.

By the way Takki, I could beat you in a poached egg off mate. No boller.

0 |

No you could mate, no you couldn't.

Honestly pal, Im sure yours are good but compared to my beasts they probably taste like dog shit.

There's no shame in that

Anyone who calls a finely crafted poached egg a "beast" obviously doesn't have a clue about the culinary masteries involved in making a sensational poached egg.

Some day I may offer you some advice young Padawan.

Oh, I admire your interest in the art as well... nice to see someone with such drive. I remember being like you once... a long time ago, but I remember.

Tried showing I'm Alan Partridge to my brother, he just didn't get it.

The scene where he retells the opening of The Spy Who Loved Me is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

1 |

What's wrong with your brother?

0 |

Exactly. Made it through the first two epsiodes of season 1, the first episode is a blinder.

'SMELL MY CHEESE!'

Ordered the cds yesterday, £7 delivered = spot on. Cannae wait!!

0 |

listening to it now.

"I didn't have a moto growing up, but had I done, it would all most certainly have been 'i'd love some friends please'', but maybe in latin. I'd look on with longing as my fellow children, greedily enjoyed their friendships. I remember being especially jealous of a guy named Graeme Rigg. Gareme was too cool for school, though he did still attend"

Listening to the Audiobook at the minute. Its class. I enjoyed the book but his voice brings alot more to it. Laugh out loud funny. The turn of phrase is class.

"In his right hand he had a cup of coffee, and in his left hand, he didnt"

"Putting a damp spoon back in the bowl is the tea-drinking equivalent of sharing a needle. And I did not want to end up with the tea-drinking equivalent of AIDS.”

“Hello, Alan." said Carol's dad Keith.
"Hello, Alan." said Carol's mum, Stella, not bothering to think of a greeting of her own.”

“If I was feeling like a challenge, I'd kick out the plug, turn the taps on and see if I could maintain the exact water level. It was a bit like balancing the clutch in an old Mini Metro. Although tricky at first, by the time I checked out I could find the bath's biting point within three minutes. Satisfying? Just bit.”

"He has no middle fingers on one hand, so he can't swear but is permanently doing the heavy metal sign.”

Haha. You not fussed on Alpha Papa Hulkster? It was good I thought and more Partridge is a good thing I think. New series of Mid Morning Matters in the pipeline and theyre planning a follow-up to the excellent Welcome To The Places Of My Life.
