Alfie Moore - The Stand Up Police Sergeant
Stand Up Comedian.
Alfie 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.
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 twice written and performed his own one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they have each run for the full 22 nights. During August 2012 Alfie is performing his show ‘I Predicted a Riot! at the Pleasance Courtyard. He has also supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours.
Alfie was one of the stars of ITV1′s Show Me The Funny and wrote and presented ‘Alfie Moore’s Almanac’ for BBC Radio. Most recently he has been featured in BBC3′s Bizarre Crime.
Alfie has an observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing.
Alfie is a versatile stand-performer and is currently headlining for a variety of promoters including Buzz Comedy, Alexanders Jazz Club, Big Night Out, Funhouse Comedy, The Comedy Club, UK Comedy, Ten Feet Tall, Mirth Control, Kill For A Seat, Toby Jones, Anthony J Brown, Funny Bones, Laughing Factory, Hilarious, Edset and Big Owl . He also performs a select number of charity events each year.
