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.
