Fostering The Funnies

Fosters are continuing their support of great comedy by returning to their successful revivals of Alan Partridge and The Fast Show.

The lager giant have been sponsoring individual shows for some time now – most recently including Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy – and are now the proud sponsors of the Edinburgh Comedy Award.  To celebrate, last year saw them fund and host Mid Morning Matters With Alan Partridge on their official site and YouTube channel, as well as bring back Reeves & Mortimer and cult sketch show The Fast Show in one fell swoop.

Now, as Steve Coogan and co-creator Armando Ianucci are reportedly bringing the first Fosters series to television via Sky Atlantic, the webisodes are set to return later this year, according to DigitalSpy.

Meanwhile, after an initial batch of 6 episodes before Xmas, a second run of Fast Show episodes from the revived team of Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Arabella Weir, Simon Day, John Thomson, Caroline Aherne, Rhys Thomas and our very own Lucy Montgomery – have begun ‘airing’ every Thursday.

You can catch Episode 7 below – and if you want to step back in time and see the whole Partridge story, or every tv episode of The Fast Show ever (which gave Tony Way his big break, peelers!) – you can buy ’em both in The Velvet Onion Amazon Store.
