Over the weekend every TV show hosted their annual St. Patrick’s Day special but there was one in particular that caught people’s attention.
This Time with Alan Partridge’s featured the hosts' Irish doppelganger, Martin Brennan - played by Steve Coogan.
The ‘Sligo man’ joined the couch to talk about his career as an Alan impersonator, despite not knowing who he was, and life as a farmer in the west of Ireland.
After a bit of chit-chat and an open-invite to the Brennan farm, his cousins joined him to join him for a rendition of ‘Come Out Ye Black and Tans’ and ‘The Man Behind the Wire’.
Did we ever think we'd see the day?
A moment that will go down in TV history.
Oh my god that was the best episode. It’s getting better and better. The Irish Alan Partridge lookalike was a stroke of genius. The whole thing is. #ThisTime pic.twitter.com/q6FpHrRk0s— Greg James (@gregjames) March 18, 2019
Steve Coogan has managed the impossible; taking Alan Partridge to a whole new level. ‘Irish Alan’ singing “Come Out You Black And Tans” is a piece of TV gold.

How many times have you watched the Irish Alan Partridge clip already?March 18, 2019
I’ve literally been in Sligo all weekend constantly doing Alan Partridge’s Irish impression saying “Dere’s More To Ireland Den Dis” & then in tonight’s episode, he has an Alan Partridge impersonator from Sligo. Mind blown😂 pic.twitter.com/yS9YGwjAw3— L.i.am (@GilesyL14) March 18, 2019
I get the feeling that Irish Alan Partridge moment on last night’s This Time With Alan Partridge will go down as a classic moment in comedy history... right up there with “That’s very nearly an armful” and Eric & Ernie’s kitchen dance @neilgibbons pic.twitter.com/B5Sm3sSMzl— nathan bevan (@nathbevan) March 19, 2019
