'Alan Partridge': Steve Coogan tells his bosses to 'just sack Pat' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Alan Partridge, British actor and comedian Steve Coogan is back at it as everyone’s favorite politically incorrect Norwich radio DJ — only this time, Alan’s days at North Forfolk Digital may be numbered. When a multinational conglomerate buys out Alan’s beloved station with the intent of rebranding it entirely, the locally famous radio personality finds himself fearing for the safety of his job.

It’s every man for himself as Alan pleads with his new bosses to sack his co-worker and fellow DJ, Pat Farrell (Colm Meaney), instead of him. Watch the exclusive clip from Alan Partridge below: READ FULL STORY

Steve Coogan's 'Alan Partridge' comes stateside: 'You know who I am' -- VIDEO

Alan Partridge, Steve Coogan’s narcissistic, vulgar U.K. TV and radio broadcaster alter ego, is finally getting his stateside feature debut after nearly a decade of tantalizing rumors.

Half of you have probably been keen on Partridge for years and will scoff at the insufficient description of the beloved character that’s been around in some form for over two decades. The other half? Maybe you caught some of Partridge on his BBC America show, maybe you heard Coogan and Rob Brydon riff on its lack of U.S. appeal in The Trip and pretended to know about it. Or, maybe you’re just trying to figure out where you’ve heard the name Steve Coogan before. (Lately? Probably Philomena. But really, if you’re here, you know Coogan.)

Regardless of your familiarity with Partridge, Alpha Papa looks like an absolute delight and already opened in the U.K. last summer to very positive reviews. (It currently boasts an 84% on Rotten Tomatoes.) In the film, when North Norfolk Digital Radio is taken under siege after a disgruntled ex-employee (Colm Meaney) decides to exact revenge, Coogan’s Partridge is the only person he’ll talk to. He’s also, predictably, the one who got him fired. Check out the spot after the jump.
