The Diary: Alan Partridge; Jesse Eisenberg; Nick Relph; Wonderland;

"Corporate whores, morons, illiterates". So Stewart Lee branded those involved in the Foster's Edinburgh Comedy God poll back in July. The "banal" (Lee's word) survey was an inauspicious start for the lager brand's comedy sponsorship programme but now Foster's has pulled off an undeniable coup, securing the new series of Alan Partridge to screen exclusively on its website. The 12 short episodes, Mid-Morning Matters with Alan Partridge, will stream on www.fostersfunny.co.uk over the next few months.
