Steve Coogan's comic creation Alan Partridge has been around since 1991, but he shows no signs of slowing down. In the last decade alone he's had multiple TV shows, conquered YouTube and had his own feature film.
Now he's entered the world of releasing a podcast during the pandemic, with his Audible series From the Oasthouse (although it was actually recorded before).
Looking ahead, Coogan wants to go one step further. We've had Alan in our ears and on our screens, now let's have him right in our face.
"I'm gonna do a live show in a couple of years," the comedian exclusively told Digital Spy. "I wanna go out on the road and do a Ted Robbins-style, Alan helping people sort their lives out."
Coogan stresses that he won't be reprising any of his other (less successful) characters, Paul and Pauline Calf, on the tour.
"It's not 'Steve Coogan On Tour', it's Alan Partridge," he explained. "It's his roadshow, the things he's learned in his life."
He didn't say if he'd bring the tour to America or not, but he did note that, Alan never really took off the United States like he did in the United Kingdom, he is pleased that he has become a "cult favourite" and counts people like Paul Rudd and Bill Hader as Alan fans.
