It’s been nearly 10 years, but Alan Partridge is back! Fosters Funny are proud to present Norwich’s finest DJ, in his own show, launching soon exclusively on fostersfunny.co.uk
As well as brewing one the world’s best-loved beers, the folks at Fosters are always on the lookout for things that will make them – and you – laugh. Funny jokes, banter, TV shows, online clips: Fosters trawl the media handpicking all the wittiest, jolliest, funniest stuff available and putting it online on their own dedicated comedy website, Fosters Funny.
So, although Fosters doesn’t like to brag, they do know great comedy when they see it, and it doesn’t get much greater than Alan Partridge. On November 5, Alan will launch his new series, Mid Morning Matters, exclusively on Fosters Funny. For those who have been waiting for the return of Norwich’s finest broadcaster, this is a momentous comedy event. Alan himself, it seems, is more than ready to embrace the modern age and get online, in fact he’s rather put out that it didn’t happen sooner. “That it has taken Foster’s to help realise my dream of joining the information superhighway is a damning indictment of the established broadcasters whose shabby treatment of me on Sept 10th 2001 was frankly shabby. I made dozens of calls the next day, all of which were ignored.”
Alan is one of the funniest, most iconic comedy characters of all time and also one of the most missed. It’s been nearly 10 years since he has entertained the nation with his own brand of inappropriate narcissicism, but Fosters have finally tempted him out of semi-retirement to give the people what they want.
And as if the return of Alan Partridge weren’t enough, you can enjoy all sorts of other hilarious treats on the Fosters Funny website, and even turn comedian yourself. If you’re bursting with witty one-liners and brilliant banter just get your webcam out and post them on the Fosters Funny gag gallery for the whole world to giggle at. You’ll be entered into the weekly joke jackpot, Fifty for your Funny, and if yours is the joke that tickles Fosters the most, you’ll will win £50!
If visual gags are more your style, with Frame for a Laugh you can upload pictures of you and the lads into the Fosters beer galleries for a friendly comedy face-off. But if you’d rather sit back and enjoy the comedy antics of others, Fosters Funny has collected some of the funniest clips from Channel 4’s comedy shows, and plucked the weirdest and wittiest clips off the internet and crammed them into The Constant Pour for your viewing pleasure.
So, the amber nectar, laughter on tap and a world exclusive from one of the nation’s favourite comedy characters all in one place? You don’t want to miss this.
Online comedy connoisseurs Fosters Funny are now the proud hosts of the legendary Alan Partridge. Watch his new show exclusively at fostersfunny.co.uk
