Coogan will be reprising his role, hitting up areas across the Scissored Isle next year, hot on the heels of the character’s triumphant return to the BBC in the second season of This Time With Alan Partridge last year.
He also hosted his own eighteen-part podcast, From The Oasthouse, last year, which saw the character discuss everyday topics from his beloved rural Norfolk.
His upcoming live show, called Stratagem, promises to ‘inform, educate and entertain in approximately equal measure’ – as Partridge attempts to offer a way forward for the country in the aftermath of Brexit and COVID.
Wearing a head-mic favoured by TED talkers, market hawkers, TV evangelists, backing singers and carnival barkers, Alan combines all these roles and more. It’s a manifesto for the way we can move forward, a roadmap to a better tomorrow, an ABC for the way to be.
Devised, written, choreographed, performed, and funded by Alan Partridge, Stratagem sees Alan not just treading the boards but pounding them, atop stages graced by such luminaries as Michael Ball, Jack Whitehall and Welsh rockers the Stereophonics.
“So join Alan, live on stage, (though patrons are asked not to join Alan live on stage) as he brings STRATAGEM to a city or selected good-sized town near you.”
