Alfie is probably the only comic to moonlight as a copper. He’s now left the day job after four sell-out Edinburgh shows and his own BBC Radio 4 comedy series It’s a Fair Cop.
Alfie Moore was a serving police sergeant with the Humberside Constabulary for 18 years. Somewhat unusually he is now a professional stand-up comedian with four sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows under his belt as well as his own Radio 4 series.
After dinner, Alfie shines his torch on some of the more bizarre aspects of modern policing - like calling prisoners ‘customers’. He also takes a light-hearted swipe at the twin burdens of paperwork and political correctness, and demonstrates the pitfalls of trying to arrest a man fleeing the scene of crime dressed as a carrot or tasering a man wearing nothing but flip-flops. All in a day’s work for the modern police officer.
Alfie’s Radio 4 show, It’s a Fair Cop, is a huge hit showcasing his deadpan look at the policeman’s lot and asking the audience how they’d fair in law enforcement. He’s also appeared in The Independent, on Radio 4’s Today programme, Sky News, Comic Relief and The Wright Stuff, as well as on Radio 5Live. Alfie also competed in ITV’s Show Me The Funny.
