“My favourite (Edinburgh Festival show) was Alfie Moore’s brilliantly funny show about policing. It’s genuinely funny and it’s about something. Do catch it!” David Mitchell
“I loved and laughed most at was Alfie Moore… absolutely go..” Victoria Cohen

Sergeant turned stand-up Alfie Moore has seen it all! A truly charismatic raconteur, Alfie’s thrilling insight into life at the front-line of the police force will not only alter your perspective on the ‘boys in blue’, but is guaranteed to have you in fits of laughter! Following a UK tour earlier this year and having supported comedy heavyweights Sarah Millican, Milton Jones and Russell Kane, Alfie appeared at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival to much acclaim.
In 2011, after eighteen years at the Humberside Police and numerous performances on the stand-up circuit, Alfie intended to take his show (with the prophetic title ‘I Predict A Riot’) up to the Edinburgh Festival. However August 2011 saw some of the greatest public disturbances of recent years, when violent riots broke out across England’s largest cities. Under the circumstances Alfie could no longer take the time off work and so the show didn’t make it to Scotland.
Eventually in 2012 ‘I Predicted a Riot’ finally reach its intended destination at the Edinburgh Fringe!
Alfie had great reviews for his “I predicted a Riot” show in The Times, The Telegraph, The Scotsman, The Sunday Times, The Metro and more. Peep Show’s David Mitchell said that Alfie was his favourite Edinburgh 2012 Fringe show.
With an irrepressible nature for storytelling and an every man likeability, Alfie is the bobby on the beat you never had. Revealing everything from the mundane to the macabre, Alfie 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.
With a Radio 4 commission in the bag, and working on a 2013 book, Alfie still can’t escape the paperwork he thought he’d left behind in the force.
