Biography:
 
Born into a working-class Catholic Irish family in Manchester, England, Steve Coogan took to performance in his teens, and hit the standup scene soon afterward. It was there that television casting agents took notice of his impersonations of world leaders, pop stars, and various celebrities, and they soon put him to work playing various comedy parts in network shows.

Coogan's talents led him from the television to radio, where he made an even bigger success with the comedy program On the Hour. The show allowed Coogan to try out a number of vocal characterizations, among them the arrogant, ignorant radio announcer Alan Partridge, made him an audience favorite.

Coogan developed many other characters through the '90s and performed in the standup scenes. It was around this time that he was approached by director Michael Winterbottom to play the part of Tony Wilson, the charismatic Manchester TV personality in 24 Hour Party People.

Later, Hollywood casting agents were impressed with Coogan, and lured him to play the role of Phileas Fogg in the big-budget updating of Around the World in 80 Days (2004).
