Alan Partridge Exclusive Clip

With Alan Partridge’s new memoir Nomad hitting bookshops this autumn, who better to tell fans more than the man himself?

Steve Coogan’s much-loved comic alter ego released his last ‘autobiography’ I, Partridge in 2011, with Nomad following on from recent mockumentary Scissored Isle (it sees Alan charts the highs, lows and mediums of his one-man walking tour around Britain).

“Nomad brings you the story of a one man walk I undertook to try to learn about who I really am,” explains Alan in the hilarious exclusive clip above. “I was able to use transport when essential but I set myself one caveat: no unlicensed mini-cabs.

“Through witty vignettes, heavy essays and not inducing pieces of wisdom, I shine a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of myself. It’s a piece of work of which I’m immensely proud and if I had to sum it up in one word it would be: hope.”

Take a look at the official cover (if you’re into the judging thing, we think it’s great):

Nomad arrives in stores on 20 October. Now, excuse us while we dash off and attempt to rival Alan’s mouthwatering mountain of freshly buttered toast…
