Product description

Product Description

Every episode from the three BBC comedy series featuring Steve Coogan's cringeworthy alter ego, chat show host Alan Partridge.

 'Knowing Me, Knowing You' (1994) sees Alan presenting his own TV series along with the Christmas Special ‘Knowing Me, Knowing Yule’ . The two series of 'I'm Alan Partridge' (1997 and 2003) chronicle Alan's increasingly desperate attempts to rebuild his tattered career after assaulting the BBC's Chief Commissioning Editor with a frozen turkey!

‘Knowing Me, Knowing You & Knowing Me, Knowing Yule

Alan Partridge, the chat show host from hell (or more precisely, Norwich) hit the TV screens with his own series in 1994 – and we still haven’t stopped laughing. Aiming to “quite literally put the chat amongst the pigeons,” Alan took on prime time TV – and lost, badly. As chat show host he is brash, cheesy and uncompromisingly narrow-minded. Faced with crude clown groups, risqué men’s dance troupes and fashion designers, he is obnoxious and downright rude. As only Partridge can, he humiliates, infuriates, assaults and even kills his guests – but always, ends his show like a true professional… “On that bombshell…”

Includes original untransmitted test footage.

I’m Alan Partridge – Series 1

Since his chat show came to a catastrophic end, Alan Partridge has been rebuilding his career as an early morning DJ on Radio Norwich. With his loyal PA Lynn by his side, Alan prepares for his return to celebrity status.

I’m Alan Partridge – Series 2

After a couple of years of being clinically fed-up, Alan has ‘bounced back’. He’s got the third best slot on Radio Norwich, a military-based quiz on cable TV called Skirmish, a 33 year-old girlfriend called Sonja, an autobiography (Bouncing Back) and is only living in a caravan until his new house is finished.

We bought this set for our son who is an avid Partridge fan and he loved it. The words 'comic genius' are often bandied about, often wrongly, but when it comes to Steve Coogan, they are most definitely very apt. His characterisation of the hapless Alan is truly remarkable and will surely be long regarded as classic British comedy. At times he drives you to dispair and frustrates you with his attitude while at other times you feel immense sympathy towards him. Mr Partridge is most certainly arrogant and rude but it is his frequent failures that make him so endearing. He is ably supported by an equally brilliant cast, I particularly love the loyal and long suffering Lynn his P.A. No matter how many times you watch these DVDs you will always find something to laugh about. Coming from Norwich, I suppose I have soft spot for Alan as he is such an iconic figure in these parts. This is a must buy to have in your collection as it provides hours of great entertainment.

Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge character is excellent. At times purely hilarious, in a farcical manner, and at times horribly embarrassing, or even crushingly sad, Partridge is a well observed character, operating in a believable and recognisable contemporary world. We can find him occasionally likeable, or even sympathetic, or suddenly appallingly gauche, his egocentric self-image playing a massive role in this volatile chemistry.

Series one is okay, but has aged the least impressively. Series two and three are classics, and see the character and presentation maturing. There are also sundry specials and extras, some of which feel like padding, others of which are great (e.g. his country walks and talks in East Anglia - being an East Anglian myself I also like the local connections!).

There are some incredibly funny moments - his air-bass routine in his trailer-home, or, literally painfully funny, as when he tries to deliver a speech after having skewered his foot on a railing - but overall it's not so much side-splitting larf-a-minute stuff, as a more simmering character and situation driven affair.

As well as being very funny, it can be very sad, poignant even. In some respects this is a very modern somewhat dark style of comedy (although already - like Partridge himself - rapidly ageing), but in others it has longer deeper roots. Partridge's tragicomic attempts to maintain his dignity in the face of adversity could be traced back to such antecedent bumblers as Peter Sellers' Clousseau, for example.

Definitely we generally laugh at these characters for the pricking of their pomposity, and at their expense. But we also recognise enough of ourselves and general humanity for it to be tinged with pain and melancholy. Clever and funny.

I'm American born and used to American humor. I sat watching British comedy when I first moved here as an adult, and having come from the "Saturday Night Live", "Fraser" and "Seinfeld" school...and aside from "Ab Fab" or "The Vicar of Dibley," I just couldn't get into most British comedy. A lot of it wasn't really interesting to me. It was mostly pratfalls and toilet humor. And I happened to come by Steve Coogan and his character of Alan Partridge and it was the first time I found myself laughing out loud. That was it, I became a huge fan. His characters are clever, well-written and executed and just hilarious. Alan Partridge is (in a sense) the British Fraser Crane...full of himself, always self-promoting and filled with well-laid plans that usually go awry. He is the guy you love to hate because everyone knows someone like this no matter where on the globe you might live. If you want the best of British humor this is it. (Since then, I've also discovered Omid Djalili...who is brilliant as well.) He never introduced Alan Partridge to America...if he had, I think he would have been much more successful. He is absolutely one of the finest comedians I have ever seen...not just in Britain but everywhere.
