Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Alfie Moore, David Tsonos, and host Karen Bayley
Former Police Sergeant turned stand-up comedian, and star of BBC Radio 4 Comedy 'It's a Fair Cop', Alfie Moore tasers his way through a set of hilarious and fascinating anecdotes drawn from his eighteen years on the beat.
Born and raised on a council estate in Sheffield he was an apprentice in the steelworks before joining the Police. He has subsequently served a whole new apprenticeship, honing his craft at comedy clubs all over the country.
With an observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing, Alfie has supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national tours.
“Brilliantly funny, genuinely hilarious” - David Mitchell
“Gloriously, life-enhancingly funny” - The Scotsman
“Strikingly original” - Arts Desk
“A very funny man” - Rhod Gilbert
If you want serious comedy David Tsonos is not your man.
David's comedy stems from being the youngest of five boys, babysitting, his nephews, and his cat. Whether it’s a bar gig, a comedy club, or a corporate function, David makes them laugh until they can laugh no more (well maybe a little more).
Starting off in Canada in 1999, and now making London his home, he has performed in over 15 countries. He's appeared at numerous fringe festivals in the UK including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bath, and Hastings.
David will continue to make people laugh until Aliens with no sense of humour take over Earth.
“Has a wealth of jokes and off the cuff remarks” - Chortle
“Very confident, knows his material totally and had the crowd roaring. Good face and voice for comedy, great timing” - The Stand
Karen began her comedy career back in 2000 and since then has gone from strength to strength. Her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike, and she is equally at home compering or performing sets.
Karen is also resident compere of her own clubs in Sutton Coldfield and Solihull, with her claim to fame to date being that she was the first woman (in its history) to win the King Gong show at The Comedy Store.
Karen has also worked in TV and radio, including appearances on the BBC New Comedy Awards (BBC3), The Last Word (ITV1), Sex on the Job (Sky 1), and 100 Greatest Cartoons (Channel 4).
“Laugh out loud jokes and superb audience control” - Chortle
