Thought this was a nice bargain for any Stteve Coogan / Alan Partridge fans. Use code MUMS20 to buy at this price.
Steve Coogan was born and raised in Manchester in the 1960s, the fourth of six children. From an early age he entertained his family with impressions and was often told he should 'be on the telly'. Failing to get into any of the London-based drama schools, he accepted a place at Manchester Polytechnic School of Theatre and before graduating had been given his first break as a voice artist on the satirical puppet show Spitting Image.
The late eighties and early nineties saw Coogan developing characters he could perform on the comedy circuit, from Ernest Moss to Paul Calf, and in 1992 he won a Perrier award with John Thomson. It was around the same time, while working with Armando Iannucci and Patrick Marber on On The Hour and The Day Today, that Alan Partridge emerged, almost fully formed.
Coogan, once a tabloid fixture, is now a respected film actor, writer and producer. He runs his own production company, Baby Cow, has a raft of films to his name (from 24 Hour Party People to Alpha Papa, the critically-acclaimed Partridge film), six Baftas and seven Comedy Awards. He has found huge success in recent years with both The Trip and Philomena, the latter bringing him two Oscar nominations, for producing and co-writing.

In Easily Distracted he lifts the lid on the real Steve Coogan, writing with distinctive humour and an unexpected candour about a noisy childhood surrounded by foster kids, his attention-seeking teenage years and his emergence as a household name with the birth of Alan Partridge.Ideal for Steven Coogan fans.
This paperback book has 356 pages and measures: 20 x 13 x 2.5cm approx.

Thanks

Been listening to the Partridge books on Audible and they're pretty good tbh. Think I'd rather hear this than read it!

This is pretty good but he stops well short of talking about anything outside of his comfort zone.

Look out for the phrase "working-class" .. it's used about 23,000 times :-D

Hot as he's an interesting character.

I think Alan Partridge is hilarious but the fact Steve Coogan is a total knob in reality does slightly ruin it for me.

The nice smiley pic of him on the cover of this is a bit ironic.
