Alan Partridge Biography
Partridge was created by Coogan and Armando Iannucci for the 1991 BBC Radio 4 comedy programme On the Hour, a spoof of British current affairs broadcasting, as the show’s sports presenter. In 1992, Partridge hosted a spin-off Radio 4 spoof chat show, Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge. On the Hour transferred to television as The Day Today in 1994, followed by Knowing Me, Knowing You later that year. In 1997, Coogan starred as Partridge in a BBC sitcom, I’m Alan Partridge, written by Coogan, Iannucci and Peter Baynham, following Partridge’s life in a roadside hotel working for a small radio station. It earned two BAFTAs and was followed by a second series in 2002.
Alan PartridgeSHow and Work
Partridge returned in 2010 with a series of shorts, Mid Morning Matters with Alan Partridge, written with Rob and Neil Gibbons, who have cowritten every Partridge product since. It was followed by the spoof memoirs I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan (2011) and Nomad (2016), and the feature film Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (2013), and several TV specials.
Critics have praised Partridge’s complexity, realism and pathos. Vanity Fair called him a British “national treasure” and the Guardian described him as “one of the greatest and most beloved comic creations of the last few decades”. The character is credited with influencing cringe comedies such as The Inbetweeners, Nighty Night and Peep Show.
Alan Partridge, one of Norfolk’s most famous sons, is returning to the BBC.
In a county boasting illustrious associations such as Lord Nelson, Stephen Fry and Delia Smith – it is only the fictional broadcaster (don’t tell him) who can say he currently has a prime-time slot on BBC One.
His former show, Knowing Me Knowing You, successfully blended celebrity guests with irreverent chat. It would probably still be going had he not accidentally shot a guest and attacked a BBC commissioning editor.
In his own words, he has “bounced back” (again), so to mark the moment – here is a look at Partridge’s Norfolk.
His new show, This Time With Alan Partridge, starts Monday, 25 February at 21:30 GMT on BBC One.

I want to be the bigger man
This morning, more than 20,000 staff at the BBC arrived at work to an email from their new “colleague” Alan Partridge, ahead of his return to the broadcaster after 24 years.
The round-robin message, written in character, urged the thousands of staff to tune in to his new show This Time With Alan Partridge, while simultaneously taking a dig at his former employers at Sky. “Even if nobody else in the country does, we’re already hitting the kind of numbers my shows were getting on Sky Atlantic.”
