Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa
British comedian Steve Coogan returns as the bumbling Norwich-based broadcaster, in a feature-length farce produced by BBC Films and the BFI. With support from fellow Brits Tim Key and Anna Maxwell Martin, the film manages to pull off quick-witted one-liners and slapstick alongside climatic action sequences. British comedy at its most British and comical.
When Alan Partridge’s (Steve Coogan) radio station, North Norfolk Digital, is taken over by a giant media conglomerate, freshly-sacked fellow DJ Pat (Colm Meaney) creates a hostage situation, forcing Alan to act as negotiator and defuse a potentially violent siege.
