“I LOVE pretty much everything Steve Coogan's done, but...”

Written on: 28/12/2010

I LOVE pretty much everything Steve Coogan's done, but this was pretty shameful...the racist stuff from Pauline Calf could be put down to the character being racist.

The identical racist stuff from Tommy Saxondale was a bit more disturbing.

Along with endless pier end double-entendres, these were extremely cheap laughs, well below one of our best comedy performers… Read Full Review

Coogan his best. A masterpiece. 'Steve Coogan is Alan Partridge and Other Less Successful Characters' is one of the best stand up routines ever. Anyone who didn't like it is clearly too stupid to have grasped the point of the show. Well worth every penny, in fact, worth double… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/12/2008 by steevey (1 review written)

Steve Coogan has been living off Alan Partridge for far too long. Most of the other characters do not work on stage. More surprising was his apparent lack of preparation, as sadly it was all a bit shambolic and embarrassing at times. Definitely one to miss… Read Full Review

I have been an avid alan partridge fan for as long as i can remember. but steve coogan has let me down with his stand up. I loved saxondale so it's not that i hate his other charachters. It's really was just plain rubbish. Even alan partridge didn't come across with his witty lines and funny facial expressions… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/12/2008 by Tara2929 (1 review written)

Went to see Steve Coogan in Bristol last night and to be honest was a little worried after reading so many bad reviews. I thought he was great. Really funny and everyone around us seemed to be having a good time too. I guess what some people find funny others dont and usually people only leave a review if they have something bad to say anyway. Good on you Steve, I think you're great!… Read Full Review

Highly recommended for Steve Coogan fans, I and many others enjoyed this show from start to finish, the sketches are all very funny! I can't believe such poor reviews, assume from people that don't appreciate "old skool" comedy. Hope dvd out!… Read Full Review

“I went to Bournemouth gig last night. Since my 30+...”

Written on: 29/11/2008 by golactico (1 review written)

I went to Bournemouth gig last night. Since my 30+ quid has been sitting in Steve Coogan's bank account for about six months now, how come he appears to have put the show together about a week before the first night? Surely at some point during the shows up to last night he must have realised that at least 60% of what he is serving up is embarrisingly bad?

To provide as much balance that I feel I'm able, the Partridge part did have me cracked up in parts. I would never have guessed this… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2008 by moodini99 (2 reviews written)

Wow, what a show. This show was, without a doubt, Steve Coogan's best work yet, he brought a wide range of his characters to the performance, each one as funny as the last. His first stand up appearance as Tommy Saxondale was utterly hilarious, a complete success, it shows that Coogan really can make any of his characters work as a stand up act. The material was fresh, witty and had the audience in stitches throughout. The support comedians were the perfect compliment to Steve's characters… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/11/2008 by pippy11 (1 review written)

Having read various steadily improving reviews, I went to the Blackpool show (27th Nov) in a fairly positive state of mind, expecting Steve to be getting into his stride.
I can say without question, that was the worst live show of any kind I have ever seen.
Peppering the sketches with a flow of expletives is not humour.
The Sir Thomas More sketch was straight out of 1970's Morecambe & Wise - but not as slick!
I have always been a big fan of anything Steve Coogan has done, however his TV… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2008 by yazzman13 (1 review written)

One of the important tenets I have learnt in life is to go into every situation with the lowest possible level of expectation. That way you can never fail to be pleasantly surprised went you don't die/get ripped off/have a miserable time.
It was with this glass half empty philosophy that I went to Friday night's show at the Brighton Centre with a sense of trepidation. The reviews for Steve Coogan's latest show (his first live gigs in 10 years) had been...well...frankly awful. Stories of people… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/11/2008

Free tickets fotunately - if I had paid £60 for me and the wife to watch him at the MEN I would have been distraught. Both Coogan fans for the last 13 years this was a big disappointment. Patchy, unpolished and looked as though it had been written the night before. The interval acts were also terrible. Real shame after seeing Steve Coogan in the excellent Sunshine recently. Not recommended… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2008 by coogans bluff (1 review written)

Unfunny, out of date, poorly rehearsed. Felt like most of the performance was just stuck together at lunch time. Lost his magic, big time. It felt like he was just delivering lines that he though he audience would laugh at. Duncan Thickit, funny back in the day, hey 10 years ago, comedy has moved on. Be satirical about todays comedians, not those of 10 years ago.
Alan was OK at the end, but Coogan didn't look like he wanted to be there. And that song at the end, "mental". I recognized the two… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/11/2008 by Jimbob237 (1 review written)

I have liked Steve Coogan for many a year especially the great A. Partridge. However after reading a review of this show a few weeks & also various web sites I was fearing the worst. Boy oh boy..I have never seen so much tedious nonsense in my life, it seemed like he could not care less or he was being pushed into this rubbish by the producers. Nothing, I repeat nothing was funny, both myself & my brother sat opened mouthed at the abysmal offering. A lot of have people have mentioned the Thomas… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/11/2008

For a few years now me, my dad and brother have been Alan Partridge's biggest fans and can pretty much tell you every episode word by word. In some ways you could say that Alan partridge was our hero.
We were counting down the days until we went (13/11/08 at the Hammersmith Apollo) and I was as excited as an 8 year old on Christmas day. But what a let down it turned out to be, I think that spending £40 on a penny sweet would have been more value for money than that embarrassment of a… Read Full Review
