Never miss another 'Alfie Moore' show
I Predicted A Riot, And Other Work: Alfie Moore
Brilliant, intelligent and refreshing comedy. Alfie Moore has been a policeman for many years and at 44 performed his first ten minute stand-up slot. He is now doing so well he’s on a sabbatical from Humberside constabulary! The show is a comedic meditation on the sometimes absurd, dangerous and misunderstood world of modern policing. And it is very funny.
A native of Sheffield, based in Scunthorpe, Moore describes himself as a ‘cheeky chappie’ and his Edinburgh 2012 debut established him as a unique voice on the comedy circuit. He uses his act to comment on the modern day force, using his insider knowledge to increase understanding – whilst pulling no punches and having a good laugh.
Hear about the force that were so keen to bring their burglary rates down that they convinced a homeowner his break-in had been carried out by a gang of badgers.
Come along if you are a police person, know a police person, or have ever met a police person! Although Alfie’s joke topics encompass much more than policing, it is a riot!
Suitable for age 14 and over.

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.
