Steve Coogan (1965- )
Actor and comedian Steve Coogan was born in Alkrington, Middleton and educated at Cardinal Langley High School. He left Middleton after his academic studies and moved to Ipswich where he performed clubs and pubs as a impressionist and comedian. If I remember correctly some of the film "The Trip", co-starring Rob Brydon was filmed in Middleton. Here is the trailer for The Trip, which like nearly everything Coogan does, is very funny.
