'This Time with Alan Partridge' just outdid itself.
In case you missed it, last night's 'This Time with Alan Partridge' featured Martin, a farmer from a vague spot in the west of Ireland. And he just so happens to be an Alan Partridge impersonator (since last Thursday).

As hilarious as Martin's interview was, is wasn't the best moment from the show. To round out the credits, the Irish Alan Partridge sang, we kid you not, 'Come Out Ye Black and Tans'.

Anyone who doesn’t think that #thistime with Alan partridge is perfection can fuck off.

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.
If you haven’t been tuning in to #thistime, then you need to start.

Matt Lucas, of 'Little Britain' fame, tweeted his support for the show, and even praised 'Derry Girls' too.
Alan Partridge, Derry Girls, Fleabag. What a time for comedy. Can people stop saying 'Oh yeah they don't make 'em like they use to', please?
