Alan Partridge a failed television presenter whose previous exploits had featured in the chat-show parody Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge, and who is now presenting a programed on local radio in Norwich.
An interweaving narrative chronicling the antics of such diverse characters as: a transsexual taxi driver, a family obsessed with hygiene and toads, a fiery reverend, a carnival owner who kidnaps women into marriage, and a xenophobic couple who run a local shop for local people.
This was a hugely underrated show when I was a kid, and although alot of brilliant comedies have come and passed, fist of fun remains the best of the bunch. In the same vein of the smell of Reeves and Mortimer, this is a British comedy show that plays off as a variety show, with filmed sketches and many regulars, involving a mock up of Rod Hull with a fake arm, and the hobby master. I think it is quite possibly the only series to feature the recipe for "chicken lollies."
A gem of the sketch show age that spawned such greats as "the fast show" and "The smell of reeves and Mortimer," this can't be missed as a relic of British comedy before it lost it's way. (oh shame on you "my hero!")
