I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan


submit to reddit

Review
Alan Partridge, one of the greatest comedy creations of all time, has conquered
radio, TV and regional digital broadcasting. Now he’s unleashed in print, and the result is the comedy read of 2011. Far from a cash-in, there’s an astonishing attention to detail — even the index pages are funny — and endless new nuggets of Partridge lore. Did you know, for example, that he has a special system for dining in Nando’s, with a heavy focus on “carcass stability”? Or that
he once kicked a pig in self-defence?
