Product Description

There comes a time in every man's life when he must end his ten year hiatus from live performance and embark on his 86 date sell out tour. For Steve Coogan that time came in October 2009. Armed with nothing more than a hire car, a Little Chef loyalty card and a support staff of 35, Coogan criss-crossed the nation, reintroducing us to some of his best-loved characters.

Paul and Pauline Calf, Tommy Saxondale, Duncan Thickett and, of course, Norwich's favourite son, Alan Gordon Partridge. They're all featured on this show, giving you the chance to enjoy a tour that not only broke even but also broke bladders - it is estimated that over 80 gallons of piddle were released into theatre seats nationally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love it! 7 Mar 2010
This DVD seems to have got some bad reviews.
Personally I don't see why. If you were lucky enough to see this show live then I would highly recommend buying it as there's plenty of bits i'd forgotten about.
If you didn't see the show then would still recommend it as it's more classic Coogan.
The show doesn't tske itself too seriously & comes across as a light hearted almost theatrical overview of his much loved characters.
I thouroughly enjoyed it & it brought back memories of the live show :-)
Yes there is nothing technically new in this show but well worth a purchase especially when it's on special offer.
I think other reviewers have been over critical. It's fun, light hearted & will make ya laugh. Especially his little song at the end....(you know the one) Nice one Mr Coogan keep up the good work :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars The man who is still IT! 2 July 2010
Despite the very negative reviews that this show has recieved, I honestly believe that this show is just as good as The Man who Thinks he's It. Pauline perhaps overdoes the innuendoes, but her entrance is brilliant. Tommy Saxondale transfers well, although he is understandably different from how he appears on television. Duncan Thickett has developed a darker (to say the least!) personality to the bumbling stand-up comic we used to know, but it just makes the character funnier. Paul Calf is equally as funny as he used to be, there isn't much more I can say about the character. As mentioned by practically everyone else, Alan Partridge is the star of the show. His entrance, a medley of Queen songs, is very funny, as is his "sensitive" interview with a rape victim, and then his hilarious play about the life of Sir Thomas More.
Perhaps the funniest moment, however, is the final section of the show in which he plays himself, and finishes with a rather naughty song. Overall, it is hugely entertaining, and I believe it is a brilliant show.

3.0 out of 5 stars Smell my cheese you mutha 11 Aug 2012
Alan Partridge is a character that never fails to disappoint, sadly this is his lowest point!
This tour smacks of a cash in rather a show lovingly written with attention to detail!
It's funny enough, but the poor relation to Live N Lewd and The Man Who Thinks He's It which were both much better, and both had the bonus of between performance cameos from John Thomson and Simon Pegg!
This third installment really does reveal the lazy format which Paul and Pauline Calf's sketches are written within and you feel you've heard it all before! Overall it's watchable but nit great

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's Tony?? 8 Dec 2009
I was lucky enough to see steve in Australia twice when he was in sydney and I'm glad i did as for some reason Tony Ferrino is not even on this dvd or he did not include him in England, a bit downer for me as i think he is a very funny character. All his character's were well played and Alan i cannot complain about as anything that Alan does is worth looking at. The dvd is short and sweet and would have been nice to see more behide the scenes on interviews and how he came up with his charaters but we just have to wait to see if we get anymore when coogan returns.

Went to see this tour at NIA. Im a big coogan fan and Partridge fan. After laughing so hard at Duncan Thickett and Steve Oram (on between acts with some real crazy stuff) plus Tommy Saxondale and Paul Calf i expected Partridge to be his usual self.

which he was. Great during all the chat and fumbling around with technology, but what was the Henry VIII bit all about, nearly sent me to sleep. Luckily the song at the end saved the day.

The show itself was a great night out, with a year to wait until the DVD my expectations were high of the DVD actually capturing the night.

On to the DVD. Where is Steve Oram ????? Wheres the brillinat last song(oh it gets a snip in the extras but wheres the intro with the copper ? ).

Instead we get some editors clinically cut personal choice of specific acts. Come on Coogan, release the full show with the Steve Oram bits.

My conclusion.... next time he's about go and see 'the show', but forget telling your mates about half of the best bits before the DVD comes out. Because an hour of the 'show' wont be on the disc.

2.0 out of 5 stars A poor return 6 Jan 2010
I'm an Alan Partridge fan first and foremost - he is the greatest British comedy character of all time, however Coogan has also blessed us with other pieces of comedy gold with Saxondale, the Calf's and even Duncan Thickett's bad comedy routine.

So, having waited too long to see Coogan live once again (The Man Who Thinks He's It was genius) I went to see this show in Glasgow.

To say I was disappointed is an understatement. The first half of the show (ie the non Partridge characters) is simply not funny. Too much of it was formulaic and predictable and has been done better in the previous live show.

Paul Calf is maybe the most disappointing of the older characters, and it's safe to say that Tommy Saxondale won't be appearing on stage again anytime soon. Very poor indeed.

Having said that, most folks (myself included) were there for Partridge, which is slightly better. Once again however, this has been done before and much better on the Man Who Thinks He's It show. Of course there are a few funny moments (brought to you by Whiskas) but overall, a real disappointment, both on the night and also sitting watching again on this dvd.

I bought this as a Partridge completist, however if I was a new fan of Coogans, I would fail to see what all the fuss is about. And to be honest, I'll never watch this in full again.

Come on Steve, surely it's time now for the long mooted Alan Partridge movie?

Back of the net!
