About Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa
Insecure buffoon Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) gets his own big screen adventure with action, danger and textbook awkward comedy. From his beginnings as a radio presenter to his disastrous chat show and eventual Toblerone-aided breakdown, Alan has managed to offend and alienate almost everyone he meets with his blunt manner, bigotry and nonsensical prattle. He is working as a DJ at North Norfolk Digital radio station when he hears that it is being taken over by a big corporation – and they plan to make some budget cuts. Clinging to his post for dear life Alan sneakily gets his fellow DJ Pat (Colm Meaney) fired instead. But when Pat snaps and holds the station hostage with a shotgun, he tells the police he will only negotiate with Alan.
