Alfie is a versatile and distinctively humorous after dinner speaker, presenter and comedy writer with his niche area as a serving police sergeant. A natural and truly charismatic raconteur, his thrilling insights into life at the front-line of the police force will not only alter your perspective on the ‘boys in blue’ but have you in fits of laughter! Alfie has found that walking the beat and dealing with everyday incidents has generated a host of humorous stories that you ‘just couldn’t make up’.
He brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his eighteen years on the beat, where a keen sense of humour has been the key to his success and survival! Born and raised on a council estate in Sheffield he was an engineering apprentice in the steelworks before joining the Police.
Alfie’s observational comedic style lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing. This ability to present everyday issues in a comedic way led to a commission from an NHS Trust to develop and deliver material to raise awareness of issues about men’s health.
He has three times written and performed his own one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, including ‘I PREDICTED A RIOT’ which he has toured nationally. He returned to Edinburgh this year with his new critically acclaimed show ‘VIVA ALF’S VEGAS’. He has also supported Rhod Gilbert, Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours.
Alfie was one of the stars of ITV1′s Show Me The Funny and has also featured in BBC 3′s Bizarre Crime, Channel 5 The Wright Stuff, The Guardian, Independent on Sunday, BBC Radio 4 Today Programme & Life: An Idiot’s Guide with Stephen K Amos, BBC World Service, Radio 5 Live and Sky Motoring. He is currently writing a comedy pilot for BBC Radio 4.
