Biography

Alfie is an original and distinctive comedian with his niche area as a recently retired police sergeant. He brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from over 20 years on the front line, where a keen sense of humour has been the key to his success and survival!

Born and raised on a council estate in Sheffield he was an apprentice in the steelworks before joining the Police and gathering a wealth of hilarious stories that you ‘just couldn’t make up’.

Alfie was inspired to take up stand-up comedy in 2007 after his first taste of live comedy at a local comedy club. He quickly became well and truly hooked and was soon performing regularly up and down the country.

He has an observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing. He also is an adept socio-political commentator and weaves this all together with his take on the ‘comedy gold’ of life.

He has six times written and performed his own one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, including ‘I PREDICTED A RIOT’ which was long-listed for the main comedy award.

Other shows which have gone on to tour nationally and internationally include his critically acclaimed ‘VIVA ALF’S VEGAS’ and his total Edinburgh Festival sell-outs ‘THE NAKED STUN’ and ‘A FAIR COP STANDS UP’.

After the success of his deliciously dark interactive stand-up comedy show ‘GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER’, Alfie is now touring with ‘FAIR COP UNLEASHED’ – a show based on a true story reliving the thrilling ups and downs of the night a mysterious clown came to town and more than one life ended up in the balance. It was no laughing matter – but this show certainly is….

Alfie was one of the stars of ‘Show Me The Funny’ (ITV) and wrote and presented ‘Alfie Moore’s Almanac’ for BBC Radio. He has been featured on The Wright Stuff (Channel 5), Comic Relief, Bizarre Crime (BBC 3), Confessions of a Police Officer (Channel 4) and recently joined the presenting team of Criminals Caught on Camera (Channel 5).

His BBC Radio 4 comedy series ‘IT’S A FAIR COP’ debuted in July 2014. Following exceptional feedback, from listeners and media reviews, further series have been commissioned with Series 5 hitting the airwaves from 27th March 2020.

In addition to his own tour shows Alfie performs at a select number of charity gig a year, including as a Patron of Western Park Hospital Cancer Charity. He also enjoys performing as part of a ‘mixed bill’ of comedians at good quality comedy clubs up and down the country.
