** 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.

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, an entire wardrobe of Pringle jumpers and an unhealthy 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:

* 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.

* AmbiguouslyBi: Alan, based on his bizarre daydreams in the first series, which ''all'' involve dancing for men, and his obsession with 'ladyboys'. He has displayed slight homophobic tendencies however (describing himself as a homosceptic), but becomes more tolerant in his attempts to be seen as politically correct.
