Radio 4 police comic to share hilarious real-life tales with Fernhill residents
A former policeman, stand-up comedian and star of his own Radio 4 comedy show is poised to share hilarious tales of his life on the beat with residents of Fernhill House – with villagers welcome to join them too.
Alfie Moore, whose fourth series of It’s a Fair Cop will be broadcast this spring, will deliver amusing insights of his 18 years as the long arm of the law on Wednesday January 31st at 6pm.
Alfie is the latest of the home’s monthly celebrity speakers, with BBC sports journalist Garry Richardson, Archers star Graham Seed, aka Nigel Pargetter and novelist Gervase Phinn among recent attractions.
Alfie was born on a Sheffield council estate, was an apprentice in the steelworks before joining the police, and has been a stand-up comic for ten years. His Radio 4 show sees him ask his audience to make policing decisions as he takes them through real-life crime scenarios.
He has performed his own one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours.
Residents and visitors will also be served complementary nibbles and refreshments courtesy of Fernhill House’s award-winning chef.
