* ButtMonkey: He was found by Alan in an unsuccessful pub band, where he was often mugged after shows since it was his job to collect change on the floor. From there, it somehow gets worse: Alan fires him, they end up sueing and counter-sueing each other for years which cripples him financially and forces him to take terrible musician jobs (with arthritic hands) and destroys any joy he once took in his work. And his former band members are still sueing him for unpaid royalties.

--> '''Dave''' I think you're splidding hairs a little bit there Alan.
--> '''Alan''' Sorry, "splidding"?
--> '''Dave''' Yeah, splidding, you know.
--> '''Alan''' Sorry, it’s difficult to understand you when you say "splidding" Because I know in real life you say “splitting”. It’s interesting the way you substitute a “d” for a “t” when you’re broadcasting. If you ask me, it’s the behaviour of a "dosser".



* SmugSnake



The manager of the Linton Travel Tavern, Susan appears to be a stereotypical front-desk worker, with a dazzling smile and sickly sweet manner. However, even these forced skills are not enough to deal with Alan's clumsy, half-hearted flirting and mindless anecdotes. Alan frequently makes tactless comments to Susan about her appearance (once suggesting to her that she "could have been throwing up all night" but that her smile would not falter). In reaction to these comments, Susan's painted-on smile is sometimes momentarily replaced by a look of shock and bemusement.

A recently employed receptionist at the Travel Tavern, Sophie is also rarely without a smile; however, in her case it is normally because she is suppressing a laugh over Alan's antics. While Susan brushes off Alan's social faux pas with a smile, Sophie is rarely able to control her laughter at Alan's appalling lack of social skills, and often has to leave reception to prevent laughing in his face. Much to Alan's annoyance, he is sometimes aware that Sophie often jokes about him behind his back.

Ben is another member of staff at the Travel Tavern and Sophie's boyfriend. Alan is jealous of Ben's romance with Sophie, and does his best to sabotage their romantic trysts. In later episodes, Alan attempts to forge a friendship with Ben, despite Alan's earlier irritation at Ben's informal and somewhat laid-back manner. Predictably, Alan's attempts to befriend Ben are clumsy and unsuccessful.

* BadBoss: He's too much of a coward to tell his production staff that he didn't get a second series, insteadchoosing to gradually fire them for ridiculous reasons at random. He doesn't tell his secretary she's been fired so he can date her, and later announces she was sacked on the radio.

He doesn't tell his secretary she's been fired so he can date her, and later announces she was sacked on the radio. He would even be able to retain two of his staff if he swapped his big Rover 800 for a Rover 100 aka Metro, but he absolutely will not drive a "Mini-Metro", so he opts for a Rover 200 and everyone gets sacked.



* StupidBoss: He disregards Lynn's often sensible advice, in one case refusing to switch from his current car to a mini-metro to save his production company and responding to this suggestion with, 'I'll just talk over you' and proceeds to do just that.

He settles for the second smallest car in the Rover range even though it still means sacking all his staff.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Although Alan doesn't view him as such, and he's a bit tougher than he maybe needs to be, Tony gives good reasons for not giving Alan a second series. He does so in a tactful way, which is especially admirable considering Alan punched him in the face with a turkey.

* TheUnintelligible: A mild example. His Geordie accent can be difficult to understand, especially when he speaks fast, and Alan often points this out. Eventually he grows to understand Michael a little more.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Alan’s sexuality is a topic of much contention. He describes himself as a 'homo-skeptic' but has lately become more accepting (if not entirely politically correct). He actually pens a rather touching (for him, anyway) chapter in his self-serving autobiography about his friendship with Glen Ponder. At the same time, he displays both homophobic and homosexual tendencies.
