ALFIE MOORE – IT’S A FAIR COP (Work In Progress)
We are delighted to welcome Alfie Moore to the Kirkgate and Cockermouth LIVE, with his hit show ‘It’s A Fair Cop’.
In eighteen years as a cop on the beat, Alfie Moore ‘has seen it all’. In addition to all that policing knowledge and experience, he has a wealth of hilarious stories you ‘just couldn’t make up’.
His hit BBC Radio 4 Comedy series‘It’s A Fair Cop’ is the perfect vehiclefor Alfie to skilfully blend succinct layman explanations about the law, with very funny anecdotes from his own policing experiences, whilst taking the audience through a real-life scenario with which he has dealt.
The premise of the show is that Alfie ‘swears in’ you, the audience, as police officers for the night and, as thescenario unfolds, you are challenged by the real moral dilemmas that police officers on the street face every day and invited to say what real-time decisionsyouwould have made. Often with unexpected andentertaining results!
With the benefit of hindsight decisions made by police officers on the street can look like ‘howlers’ after the event (or in the press) but officers often have to make snap decisions based only on the information that they have in front of them. Sometimes only seconds to make very difficult decisions – and you will get to have a taste of how this feels.
Alfie’s show features new material as a ‘work in progress’, being developed for further Radio 4 series.
