** Although it's important to note that the joke seems to be about how bizarre and neurotic Alan can be in his approach to women and sex. After all, one of the things that upsets him most is that there's now chocolate on the bet's linen.

* EroticDream: A recurring gag in the first series has Alan frequently segue into a kind of daydream in which he offers to do a lap-dance for a variety of men whilst wearing a leather codpiece and one of his Pringle jumpers with the nipples cut out, whenever he's whoring himself to get back on TV.

* AmbiguouslyBi: The only characters Alan develops crushes on or ends up being together with are women, but he has bizarre [[EroticDream daydreams]] in the first series, which ''all'' involve dancing for men, and then there's his obsession with 'ladyboys'. He has displayed slight homophobic tendencies, however (describing himself as a homosceptic), but later becomes more tolerant in his attempts to be seen as politically correct.

** He's a blinkered hypocrite.[[note]]He snidely calls Joni Mitchell 'blinkered' for not acknowledging his pedantic point above, despite the fact that he's the one apparently completely failing to spot the intended metaphor and lyric poetry in order to make a pedantic point that supports his political views.[[/note]]

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Our first introduction to Alan in the series comes when we see him playing out a song on his radio show, doing a time check, introducing a "fact of the day" and introducing the next song. Through this, viewers who've never encountered him before learn the following:
** He's a pedantic KnowNothingKnowItAll with some reactionary views.[[note]]He criticises Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" for the lyric "they paved over paradise to put up a parking lot" by pedantically arguing that this would reduce traffic congestion around paradise.[[/note]]
** He's a blinkered hypocrite.[[note]]He snidely calls Joni Mitchell 'blinkered' for not acknowledging his pedantic point above, despite the fact that he's the one apparently completely failing to spot the intended metaphor and lyric poetry in order to make a pedantic point that supports his political views.[[/note]]
** His career isn't going very well. [[note]]The time check is for 4.30AM -- not exactly a peak hour for radio listeners.[[/note]]
** He's fascinated by banal trivia. [[note]]His "fact of the day" is a mind-bogglingly banal point about "crab sticks" not actually being made of crab.[[/note]]
