After Dinner Speaker

Alfie Moore

A fantastic dinner at York Racecourse was followed by fantastic entertainment from Alfie Moore. Alfie is a speaker, presenter and comedy writer as well as a serving police sergeant (currently on sabbatical.) A natural and truly charismatic raconteur, his insights into life at the front-line of the police force had the CSP:2017 audience in fits of laughter. His website promises stories you "just couldn't make up" and on the night, Alfie delivered.

He has written and presented two series of his prime-time BBC Radio Four comedy series ‘It’s a Fair Cop’ which received both public and critical acclaim being described by the Daily Mail as “offbeat, revealing and very funny”. Alfie was one of the stars of ‘Show Me The Funny’ (ITV) and wrote and presented ‘Alfie Moore’s Almanac’ for BBC Radio. More recently he has been featured on The Wright Stuff (Channel 5), Comic Relief, Sky News, BBC Radio 4’s Idiots Guide to Crime and Punishment, BBC Look North, ITV Calendar, Bizarre Crime (BBC 3), and Confessions of a Police Officer (Channel 4)
