Alfie Moore

Alfie Moore

Alfie Moore
‘Brilliantly funny, genuinely hilarious’ – David Mitchell (Peep Show)
‘Gloriously, life-enhancingly funny’ – The Scotsman
‘Strikingly original’ – Arts Desk

Back by very popular demand with his all new show ‘The Naked Stun’. As seen on ITV’s ‘Show Me The Funny’. Voted 3rd best joke of the 2013 Edinburgh Festival and star of his own forthcoming BBC Radio 4 show ‘It’s a Fair Cop’. Alfie tasers his way through a brand new hour of hilarious and fascinating anecdotes drawn from his eighteen years on the beat. Described by Rhod Gilbert as ‘fascinating and funny’ Alfie is an original and distinctive comedian with his niche area as a serving police sergeant. He came slightly later to comedy and brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his day job, where a keen sense of humour has been the key to his success and survival. He has also supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours and toured his own Edinburgh festival show ‘I Predicted A Riot’ around UK theatres to great critical acclaim. Alfie has a relaxed observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing with belly laughs abundant.
Rachel Fairburn

A former Funny Women and City Life Comedian of the Year finalist as well as Hoot Best New Act, Rachel cuts a compelling onstage figure as a demure but ultimately doom-laden Mancunian with twisted imagery in droves. Previewing material from her Edinburgh Festival show ‘All The Fun Of The Fairburn’.

Dotty Winters
‘An extremely likable and engaging stage presence, clever and consistently hilarious material’ – Funny Women

Dotty has burst onto the UK comedy scene, charming audiences up and down the country. Refreshingly original and more colourful than a Dulux colour chart, Dotty has a talent for finding hilarity in otherwise sombre situations. Fan of fancy words, purveyor of wrongness, Funny Women Finalist 2013, Dotty is a vibrant joy to behold.

Guest Compere – Ryan Gleeson
‘The Bruce Lee of comedy. Sharp one-liners, deadly quips… and rather thin’ – Grin Up North

Ryan Gleeson has proved himself the loveable cheeky chappy of comedy, with audiences instantly warming to his endearing charm. But, don’t let that fool you, this man is the heckler’s worst nightmare, shout out at him and he unleashes his rapier wit.
The Blackpool gagster has also quickly turned himself into one of the most promising comperes in the North West, regularly compering at Blackpool’s first and now, only comedy club, The Comedy Station and regularly compering at other venues across Britain.
