New York, NY — You may know Steve Coogan from his scene-stealing turns in films like Tropic ThunderNight at the Museum or last year’s The Trip, but these phenomenally successful stage shows are what established Steve Coogan as one of the best live comedy performers in the world. Now for the first time on DVD, you can laugh-out-loud with all your favorite Coogan characters, including Alan Partridge and Paul and Pauline Calf.

Featured in this 2-disc set are:

  • The Man Who Thinks He’s It:  In this performance, Coogan brings a hilarious set of characters to the stage, including lager-swilling lout Paul Calf and his celeb-bedding sister Pauline; the worst comedian in the world, Duncan Thickett; Eurovision-winning Portuguese singing sensation Tony Ferrino; and an extended set from the inimitable Alan Partridge – as well as surprising behind the scenes footage of Coogan and appearances from Simon Pegg and Julia Davis.
  • Live ‘N’ Lewd: Reformed stand-up comedian Bernard Righton (John Thomson) introduces Paul Calf and his sister Pauline, Duncan Thickett, and a safety lecture from Ernest Moss.
  • Alan Partridge and Other Less Successful Characters: This hilarious live performance features Paul and Pauline Calf, ex-roadie Tommy Saxondale, Duncan Thickett, Norwich’s favorite son Alan Gordon Partridge, and even a song from Steve Coogan himself.

Bonus features include:

  • Highlights from Coogan’s Australia tour
  • Animations of Paul and Pauline Calf
  • “Steve Coogan: The Inside Story,” a behind the scenes documentary presented by Mark Williams (the Harry Potter films) with appearances by Julia Davis, Vic Reeves, and Bob Mortimer.
