Biography

alfiebioAlfie is an original and distinctive comedian with his niche area as a serving police sergeant. He came slightly later to comedy and brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his eighteen years on the beat, 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 where he has served for eighteen years, 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 he has toured nationally and his critically acclaimed show ‘VIVA ALF’S VEGAS’.  In August 2014 he debuted his brand new stand-up show ‘THE NAKED STUN’ in Edinburgh where it was a total sell-out for the full Festival run.  THE NAKED STUNwill be touring the UK in the autumn of 2015. Alfie has also supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours.

His brand new show for Edinburgh 2015  ‘A FAIR COP STANDS UP’ tells of his dismay at the systematic dismantling of what he considers to be the finest police force in the world. He shares his hilarious plan to resuscitate the ever shrinking ‘thin blue blue’ and change the face of British policing for ever.

Alfie was one of the stars of ‘Show Me The Funny’ (ITV) and wrote and presented ‘Alfie Moore’s Almanac’ for BBC Radio. More recently he has been featured on The Wright Stuff (Channel 5), Comic Relief, Sky News, BBC Radio 4’s Idiots Guide to Crime and Punishment, BBC Look North, ITV Calendar,  Bizarre Crime (BBC 3), and Confessions of a Police Officer (Channel 4). His new BBC Radio 4 comedy series IT’S A FAIR COP’ broadcast during July 2014. Following exceptional feedback a second series was commissioned and airs on Thursdays from 18th June 2015 in the coveted 6.30pm comedy slot.

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.
