The new series of the hit comedy show It’s a Fair Cop returns to BBC Radio 4 on Wednesday 31st May in its new time slot of 11.30am. The first episode kicks off with Barry the Burglar – which will surely resonant with all those who believe that an Englishman’s (and Woman’s!) home is their castle.
Once again former Detective Sergeant Alfie Moore swears the studio audience in as cops for the duration of the show and, as he reveals one of his true-life cases, invites them to say what they’d have done – often with hilarious results. Using his trademark blend of humour and experience of the law Alfie provides fascinating insights into the dilemmas that police officers face every day – with plenty of laughs along the way.
Pour yourself a cup of coffee, put your feet up (unless you’re driving of course – because that would be illegal!) and prepare to be thoroughly entertained.
Ahead of bringing his new tour show GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER to Scunthorpe Plowright Theatre Alfie talks to Andy Comfort at BBC Radio Humberside. In addition to talking about the show, and his twin careers as a police officer and comedian he shares some surprising information about himself – including his time as a pig farmer and his success as Elvis.
Alfie also pays tribute to BBC Radio for giving him a ‘break’ after a comedy producer saw him performing his solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The third series of his hit BBC Radio 4 comedy IT’S A FAIR COP is due to air from 31st May 2017.
Alfie will be performing GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER at the Plowright Theatre at 8pm on Friday 19th May and tickets for the show at other theatres and arts centres are also available.
