Publisher's Summary

Broadcaster, writer, philanthroper and one of the first public figures to suggest high-visibility clothing for people manning temporary car parks, the public Alan Partridge is a cherished institution. 

But what of the unseen Alan? 

For the first time, this famously private man welcomes us into his home and audibly deshrouds himself for a fascinating series of podcasts. Over the course of 18 generously durated episodes, Partridge grants us full and unfettered access to his off-screen life (within reason). 

In exchange for a series of payments from Audible, he promises an access-all-areas pass to the nooks and crannies of his hinterland, to reveal a wiser, cleverer, more reflective Alan than many of his more vaunted peers have given him credit for. He then sends the resultant podcasts to Audible ensuring they meet the technical specifications laid down in the contract.

Aha!

This is prime Alan Partridge that'll absolutely knock your socks off. Jurassic Park! On par with the TV series I'm Alan Partridge. If this was filmed on a set it would be as memorable as his 90's shows. The quotes in this podcast are vintage Partridge. Absolute comedy gold. An abundance of laugh out loud moments. Definitely not moribund.

Perfect use of the medium

I love how they adapt Alan Partridge to suit the whichever medium is being used for the character, and they really excel this time.

Listening with a constant grin and regular laughs, and it fleshes out the character and supporting characters throughout. Absolutely fantastic

Prime Alan

Binged the whole thing. Classic Alan. Great listen over a glass of wine. But hey All this wine nonsense! You get all these wine people, don't you? Wine this, wine that. Let's have a bit of red, let's have a bit of white. Ooh, that's a snazzy bouquet. Oh, this smells of, I don't know, basil. Sometimes you just want to say, sod all this wine, just give me a pint of...mineral water

Alan Partridge just keeps getting better

Beautifully small-minded, pompous, insecure, and vindictive - Steve Coogan just keeps delivering the goods with Alan Partridge.

... and what a format to be delivering upon.

Honey-smoothed baritone hilarity. True satire, where jokes which in any other context would be deemed unacceptable, hit the mark perfectly as representative of the self-entitled, smugness that is so admirably lampooned.

This is the best purchase I have ever made on Audible.

Back of the net!

Another chapter in the life of Towering Alan. A very intimate look at the man and what makes him tick. Exploiting the pod medium effortlessly because of his knowledge of broadcasting, Alan gives us glimpses, literally, from the intimacy of his home and life. We see him (not literally, but we hear him) overcome harassment from those jealous of his success, juggling the complex demands on his time with less than optimal support from staff with whom he's probably too forgiving, and we find how a modern man who is nonetheless a man for all seasons lives and loves in these progressive times.

From mens grooming tips to celebrity anecdotes we follow Alan and learn so much more in the process. if youve been a fan of Alan on television, book, film, televised book or DVD of the film or television, you simply cannot miss this next mexium that Alan makes his own.

Alan Partridge is a man of style, determination and intellect. He knows his stuff and, luckily for us, he always seems happy to share his thoughts, ideas and wisdom. What a guy!

More Partridge is never a bad thing.

Not bad too much jingle other than that an easy listen. I've really enjoyed his audiobooks much more than the show's.

Simply genius

"You've still got it Alan, I don't care what they say! 👊"
I'm quoting Jed (Maxwell) of course, who didn't go all fat and steal my pension. But just as "I'm Alan Partridge" 1 & 2 were the best British comedies ever made (alongside Fawlty Towers), this may be the best podcast ever made.
Perhaps I'm just high on the hops from Alan's new Oasthouse, or giddy from the infectious and quite brilliantly performed jingle that bookends each episode. Or perhaps I'm as lucid as Lynn when she contemplates Alan's advice herein of how to gently remove her seatbelt if she finds herself upside down after a massive collision when coming to pick Alan up from a ramble he's got fed up with (which of course has nothing to do with being caught nosing inside a divorcee's garage).
Well yes as you might have gathered, this is rather more than a quick podcast to keep that pension going. It's a very cleverly thought out and extremely well produced "I'm Alan Partridge" 6 hour audio book, and all I can say to sum it up is, lovely stuff.
Well done to all involved.

Coogan is a genius

I think the only thing better than Alan’s Top Gear esque review of Lynn’s dead mother’s stair lift (“Not bad on the pull away... huffs and puffs a bit on the incline...”) or our introduction to his new big brother role with a former inmate (“Every week I spend an hour with a troubled teen, who goes by the name of Daniel... which is his name.”) is the fact that clearly the Alan Partridge writers and team have found a medium that Coogan will be able to run with for years to come. The idea of more of this is audio heaven is bloody lovely stuff.

A great performance from Coogan that shows Partridge at his best, alone and rambling. Several heartfelt stories.

Well Alan, you’ve done it again

A treasure for any true Partridge fan. He doesn’t miss a beat.

I think anyone who enjoys a good ramble from a legendary rambler or, just the most clever comedy from modern masters of social commentary will be thrilled.

The episodes are layered, as with all Coogan/Gibbons projects, and will continue to deliver upon relistening. Cheers Baby Cow

Alan is in top form

Found myself chuckling several times an episode. Get me more Partridge, please. Loved when Alan was leaping to conclusions about a stranger's lifestyle before trespassing into his garage and getting caught. Absolute favorite bit: when going through his assistant's kitchen, says "you can learn a lot about some one from their pots and pans cupboard", then looks inside and admits to himself aloud: "no, you can't".

Brilliant, as always

You know essentially what you're going to get, but it never disappoints. My only concern is that I share some of the same pet peeves as Alan, namely acronyms vs. initializations, and "was sat" masquerading as an active verb when it's clearly passive.

Thus, Increasing One's Enjoyment.

I'm a fan of all the newer Alan Partridge stuff. Especially "This Time", "Alan Partridge Scissored Isle", and "Mid Morning Matters". I didn't '"get'" Alan Partridge until the 6th episode of "This Time: with Alan Partidege". Then, all of a sudden, like a flash, the character clicked. And there I went, a precocious young middle aged man, unencumbered as I was for the merriment imbibed throughwixt and betwixt a mountaineers pile of fresh new, hot & juicy AP content.

A thrilling listen, from a truly honourable man

Truly honest exposè of Alan Partridge, read by the author from his salubrious detached Oast House (the largest living area in square feet of any North Norfolk based commercial radio personality).

During these uncertain times, with families forced to stay at home to avoid Gods Wrath (Cov19) and many industries in turmoil -especially travel and aviation, luckily Elliot Grady from Grady Travel still has a secure career as night shift assistant team leader at his local Tesco Express- this book brings a level of certainty to who or whomever listens.

One thing is for certain, this author is most definitely an even more sought after broadcaster, not that he’s looking for the work, he’s doing absolutely fine, better than many people thought he would. And the royalties negotiated on this audiobook could have easily bought his old house (which now belongs to his ex wife Carol) in cash with plenty to spare.

10/10

So Ruddy, bloody brave!

Another ruddy hilarious audiobook/podcast from Alan.
Hard to match the genius of ‘ I Partridge’ or ‘Nomad’ but I think He’s managed it with this one.

10 on 10. Let’s make love.

Absolutely fantastic. I had literally (not literally) been counting down the weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds for the this!

I was not disappointed. Truly laugh out loud funny. For Partridge fans or anyone yet to discover our side parted friend this is one not to be missed.

More please! Pleeeeeaaase!

It’s just ‘great audio’

Forget the one-liners and slapstick of the Ianucci years; ten years of the Gibbons Bros cannon from MMM onwards is the stuff for real FOPS and gives us the real Alan: a broadcasting colossus sure, but it’s in these episodes that his tragedy is fully and most scorchingly well rendered. Here we find Alan literally and metaphorically trapped in a loft of memories and lost hopes; a prison of his own making. Ultimately, he’s just a guy in QSPC, but in the autumn of his life searching for the possibility of redemption. But is he beyond it?

Great writing and acting. But that 20 minutes of jingle, that is a mistake. This book needs edited and that needs to be reduced by 90%.

Steve Coogan’s nuanced evolution and and examination of this petty pedantic man continues. Equal parts subtle wit and ridiculous committed stupidity, this is glorious. If you’re a fan of Partridge, you’ll love it.

I'm not eating tramp soup

Our Lord and Master has returned, contemptuously strutting the lines between blissful self-ignorance and the Partridgian need to have the last laugh.

'We need to talk about Alan' worked because we're familiar with the events as they actually happened and not his charitable recollection. Where the second fell short is the lack of reference - no matter how wonderful the story you're only getting the punchline and not the setup. Here at last, we're returning both and the Master is providing it all in a demented stream of consciousness that rewards long-time listeners with something quite special.
