After a successful pilot Alfie has had his first comedy series commissioned by Radio 4. The shows are due to record in the early summer and be broadcast during July 2014. The audience of It’s a Fair Cop will be sworn in as ‘temporary constables’, and be challenged to make the kind of on-the-spot decisions required in real-life policing situations. A mix of fascinating and funny discussion will create a show that is sometimes surprising but always hilarious.
Alfie was delighted to have his joke highlighted as one of the best one-liners coming out of this year’s Fringe – especially as others in the top 10 shortlist included jokes from Tim Vine and Marcus Brigstocke. The list was compiled by a panel of experts, who watched hours of footage, before a final vote by the public.
Alfie brings his brand new show to the Pleasance Courtyard (Venue 33) at the Edinburgh Fringe from 31st July to 25th August 2013. In a laughter filled hour Alfie takes you on the roller coaster true-life story of the glorious glamorous highest and deepest darkest lows of his gambling experiences. If you’ve ever enjoyed a flutter – or no someone who has this show is a sure bet for you. More info and book tickets To listen to Alfie talking about the story behind Viva Alf’s Vegas click here
