Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Alfie Moore, Matt Richardson, and host Rick Molland
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.

Matt started doing stand-up in November 2009 when he was 18 years old and started gigging regularly in February 2010. Within 18 months he quit university and his job in a lettings office to become a professional comedian at 20. He completed his 54 date debut UK Tour ‘Hometown Hero’ in 2013/14.
In 2016 Matt became the drivetime host on Virgin Radio, made a documentary ‘Pampered Pooches (ITV2), appeared on Drunk History (Comedy Central UK), and made a show about Family Guy for ITV2. He has previously co-hosted The Xtra Factor on ITV2 with Caroline Flack and appeared on Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC3), Celebrity Juice, Nevermind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Viral Tap (ITV2) and a load of other bits and bobs.

Not many Englishmen can cut it as an MC in a Scottish Comedy Club - but that's exactly what Rick Molland does every weekend of the year.
An award winning film maker and former Scottish Comedian of the Year runner-up, having proven his comedy metal in some of the most formidable environments Scotland has to offer, including T in the Park, Rockness, and The Wickerman Festivals, Rick Molland is now resident compère at Edinburgh's Monkey Barrel Comedy Club.
