Never miss another 'Rob Rouse' show
Off The Rails Comedy Club: Rob Rouse, Alfie Moore, Justin Moorhouse
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
An English comedian known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four's prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit, known and loved for his hugely lively, loveable, honest, frank and seriously funny stand up comedy.

with genuinely funny bones’ (The Sunday Times)

Rob Rouse tour dates
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.
'He's a very funny man' (Rhod Gilbert)
'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).
