“He’s a very funny man!” - Rhod Gilbert
Alfie Moore is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene with his niche area as a serving police sergeant. A versatile performer, who is equally at home in a crowded comedy club or a corporate function. He is regularly opening larger comedy clubs and closing medium-sized venues, with many repeat bookings.
He came slightly later to comedy and brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his seventeen years on the beat, where a keen sense of humour has been key to his success and survival.
Alfie’s comedy debut was an impulsive last minute entry into a national stand up competition, where he finished runner up and was well and truly hooked. He subsequently served a whole new apprenticeship, honing his craft at comedy clubs all over the country and was then invited to become resident compere at the highly respected Otherside comedy clubs in the north of England.
Alfie has an observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing.
His engaging style enables Alfie to successfully get across serious points whilst making the audience laugh until they ache. One of the projects he is currently working on is with an NHS Trust to engage with harder to reach groups.
He is currently touring his Edinburgh 2009 show The Laughter Police – “A fascinating and funny insight into life on the Force” - Chortle
“His humble and polite approach breaks all policeman stereotypes, making him easy to relate to, and leaving the crowd wanting more.” - Three Weeks
Alfie has been featured in the Indepedndent on Sunday, Radio 4 Today Programme, Radio 5 Live and Sky Motoring.
