Alfie Moore: Speaker
Alfie Moore is an experienced and versatile guest speaker, presenter and comedy writer; with his distinctive 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 also have you in fits of laughter.

After dinner, Alfie Moore shines his ‘night stick’ on some of the more bizarre aspects of modern policing – like calling prisoners ‘customers’. He also takes a light hearted swipe, at the twin burdens of paperwork and being a ‘PC’ PC. He also demonstrates the pitfalls, of trying to arrest a man fleeing the scene of crime, dressed as a carrot; or tasering a man wearing nothing but flip flops. All in a day’s work for the modern police officer.
Alfie’s Radio 4 show is a huge hit, showcasing his deadpan look at the policeman’s lot and asking the audience how they might fair in law enforcement. He has also appeared in; The Independent, Radio 4’s Today programme, Sky News, Comic Relief and The Wright Stuff, as well as on Radio 5Live. Alfie also competed in ITV’s ‘Show Me The Funny’.
