Stephen John "Steve" Coogan (born 14 October 1965) is an English actor, comedian, farceur, writer, impressionist and producer. He began his career as a farceur and impressionist, working as a voice artist throughout the 1980s on the satirical puppet show Spitting Image. In the early 1990s, Coogan began creating original comic characters, which he presented in stage shows; this led to him winning the 1992 Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe for his show with long-time collaborator John Thomson. The most prominent characters he developed at this time were Paul Calf, a stereotypical lower class Mancunian, and his sister the promiscuous Pauline (played by Coogan in drag). Working with Chris Morris, Patrick Marber and Armando Iannucci for On the Hour and The Day Today, Coogan created his most popular and most developed character, Alan Partridge, a socially awkward and politically incorrect regional media personality, who would go on to star in three television series, Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge, I'm Alan Partridge and Mid Morning Matters with Alan Partridge (as well as two one-off specials for Sky Atlantic, including the BAFTA-winning Welcome to the Places of my Life). A feature-length Partridge film, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, was released in 2013. Outside the UK, Coogan is better known for his roles in films including 24 Hour Party People, The Wind in the Willows, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Night at the Museum, Tropic Thunder, Hamlet 2, A Cock and Bull Story, The Trip, Around the World in 80 Days and The Other Guys.
