Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: A downplayed example, since it's more "Shallow Cannot Comprehend Depth". During a promotional video for a local company who run charter houseboats for holidaymakers, Alan interviews a young woman who reveals that she likes to book a boat so that she can spend some time on the lakes reading and enjoying the scenery by herself. Alan seems genuinely disturbed at the idea that someone can just spend their time peacefully and quietly enjoying nature by themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* WittyBanter: The on-air interactions between Alan and Dave aim for this. As they are two not-particularly-witty men who genuinely detest each other, the effect is somewhat lost.

Added DiffLines:

* NoSocialSkills: The great irony of Alan Partridge's life is that he is desperate to be a famous and beloved television chat personality, but possesses almost no charm, charisma or sociability whatsoever.

1997-2002 BritCom starring Creator/SteveCoogan as Alan Partridge, a failed chat show host and candidate for the most UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist of all time. An utterly loathsome, pathologically narcissistic and self-absorbed failure of a human being with a permanent sneer, a wardrobe of Pringle jumpers and a fascination with 'ladyboys', Partridge, after a failed chat show in which he failed to get an appearance from Creator/RogerMoore, shot a guest dead, and punched his BBC boss with a partridge (''KnowingMeKnowingYouWithAlanPartridge''), is reduced to the graveyard shift on local radio and living in a motel after being kicked out by his wife. The series took a close look at Partridge's life (such as it was) and his increasingly desperate attempts to get back on television. A second series was broadcast in 2002, which showed Partridge -- following an off-screen nervous breakdown -- as slightly more successful and a lot more smug. Other important characters include:

** Also one of the very last jokes of the second series; having imparted a fan with a Blue Peter-related anecdote, having been criticised for them, Alan caps it off with "...needless to say, ''I'' had the last laugh, now ''FUCK OFF''."

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Having bullied a fan into telling him what's wrong with his autobiography - namely that anecdotes are apparently not Alan's thing - Alan embarks upon a Blue Peter-related one that actually ''works'', unlike a lot of his attempts at humour.

* Lynn: Alan's mousy personal assistant-slash-doormat, who organizes his life to such an extent that he can't survive without her, but whom he nevertheless treats with thoughtless contempt.
