knowing me, knowing you:
Ricky Gervais has built a lucrative career stealing the career of Steve Coogan. First his David Brent takes the oblivious, pedestrian and loathsome aspects of Coogan's Alan Partridge. Now his whatever-the-fuck character on Extras takes the failing-show-biz aspects of Alan Partridge. Did I mention that Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge and I'm Alan Partridge are the greatest sitcoms of all fucking time?
The earlier, radio version of Knowing Me Knowing You is also pretty great. Same character and setup (he's still basically a shlemiel, but as he manages to achieve his goal of getting his radio show onto the television, he's sort of on the upswing). I think most or all of the sketches are different.
