The audience after ten minutes

Steve Coogan, the Manchester entertainer responsible for creations such as chat show host Alan Partridge and Paul & Pauline Calf, has announced that he is to try his hand at comedy.

The performer came up with this stunning revelation after absolutely bombing during a recent shambolic tour including one venue at the Liverpool Echo Arena, where he was heckled and booed off stage by angry Scousers who had shelled-out £30 for tickets.

Many walked out of the Arena after only ten minutes, so poor was Coogan's show, and this scene was repeated up and down the country at every venue his visited.

One livid member of the Liverpool audience wrote to the Echo's website saying:

"The best part of the night, was that I was able to leave early, and avoid a long wait to get out of the car park!"

Another said:

"Shocking! Coogan must have written his flimsy routine on the bus on the way to the gig. It was, in no way, funny."

Coogan, who claims he is not familiar with the phrase 'delusions of grandeur', said:

"They didn't like my act, so maybe I'll try comedy next."
