Thurs Oct 11th
Comedy Club Night
Featuring: Alfie Moore, Paul Ricketts, Max Dickins with compere Spiky Mike.
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 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 apprentice in the steelworks before joining the Police.
Alfie was inspired to take up stand-up comedy in 2007 after his first taste of live comedy at a local comedy club. He quickly became well and truly hooked and was soon performing regularly up and down the country.
He has twice written and performed his own one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they have each run for the full 22 nights. He has also supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours. In 2011 Alfie was one of the stars of ITV1′s Show Me The Funny and wrote and presented ‘Alfie Moore’s Almanac’ for BBC Radio. Most recently he has been featured in BBC3′s Bizarre Crime.
Alfie has an observational comedic style, which lends itself to witty, and sometimes gritty, anecdotes based on everyday modern policing.

PAUL RICKETTS is an award-winning comic who since 2005 has been entertaining audiences across the UK and beyond. Since starting as an MC in his own London Comedy Club, Paul has developed into a much sought after performer on the comedy circuit. His intelligent humour focuses not only on sharp observations from life, but also racial, cultural and satirical subjects, intermingled with strange tales of ordinary madness. Sometimes silly, serious or surreal, sometimes autobiographical, political or near the knuckle - but always funny!
