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. Early on in Alfie's career he finished runner up in a national stand-up competition and was well and truly hooked. He subsequently served a whole new apprenticeship, honing his craft at comedy clubs all over the country. Alfie has an observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing.

'Genuinely brilliantly funny' (David Mitchell)
'Very funny... a large dash of gallows police humour' (The Daily Telegraph)
'He walks the comedy beat with confidence' (Metro)
'Gloriously, life-enhancingly funny' (The Scotsman)
'His is a higher form of wit. delivered with lashings of good spirits and an effective slither of self-deprecation' (Chortle)
'Lots of well-crafted jokes and a large dash of gallows police humour' (The Sunday Telegraph).

Former obiturist at The Times Newspaper, awardwinning Mullone is an exceptional genius with unmissable talent that makes him 'brilliant, a tour de force' (John Pidgeon, BBC Head of Radio Entertainment).
After appearing on the New Comedy Awards, being a finalist on FHM's Stand Up Hero, a twice finalist on the BBC Comedy Awards, and now writing for Russell Howard's Good News, Mullone's intellectual satire is an 'overlap between Eddie Izzard and Dylan Moran' (Steve Bennett, Chortle) and certainly one to watch!
