the funniest character on tv for 20 years? the inspired creation of a comic genius? the perfect antidote to celebrity-obsessed society? 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 uncomprisingly narrow-minded. faced with crude clown groups, risqumen'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 '
