“Quickfire gags with sharp observational comedy… with self-depreciating, touching honesty and intelligent political commentary… genuinely funny” ★★★★ Chortle
With an irrepressible nature for storytelling and an every-man likability, Alfie Moore is the bobby on the beat you never had. In his stand up he reveals everything from the mundane to the macabre, he recounts the continually bizarre but always humorous experiences of a modern copper; be it the time he encountered a severed head, but by law was not allowed to pronounce it dead, or the nonsensical realities of working in a squad tied up and hen pecked by bureaucracy.
“Very funny hour, nicely paced with lots of well-crafted jokes and a large dash of gallows police humour” ★★★★ The Sunday Telegraph
After eighteen years at the Humberside Police Force, Alfie Moore hung up his helmet and became a professional comedian, storming the Edinburgh Festival with hit shows in 2012, 2013 and a total sell out in 2014.
‘The Naked Stun’ sold out 25 shows in a row and Alfie has been awarded the Fringe 2014 Sold out laurel.
“He’s a very funny man” Rhod Gilbert
Since leaving the police, Alfie has developed, and grown, a solid fan base. Noticed by the BBC he was offered to write and star in his own BBC Radio 4 series “It’s A Fair Cop” which aired in July 2014.
“He’s terrific with a live audience which comes in handy for his new Radio4 series ‘It’s a fair cop’“ Daily Mail
On BBC Radio 4 Alfie draws on his 18 years experience as a copper on the beat and involves the audience having to think like a Police Officer to solve some hilarious scenarios, similar to those Alfie has encountered on the beat.

BBC Radio 4 re-commissioned Alfie to write a second series which will record in May 2015, and air over 6 weeks in June and July 2015.
“He’s an instinctively witty, affable bloke, with an engaging conversational style” Chortle
Alfie will embark on his 3rd UK tour this October 2015 touring his sold out “The Naked Stun” Edinburgh show. As well as his own headline tours, he has also supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours.
“A very funny but informative and slyly political show that does that rare thing at the Fringe – makes its audiences think” ★★★★ The Arts Desk
Alfie’s eighteen year police career included a number of years as a Police Sergeant in Scunthorpe, where he was in charge of the neighbourhood policing on the Westcliff Estate which has recently been the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, ‘Skint’.
“…a clever combination of fascinating, frightening and funny.” ★★★★ The Scotsman
