Description

Join police sergeant-turned-comedian Alfie Moore ahead of recording Series 7 of his hit BBC Radio 4 comedy 'It’s a Fair Cop'. Policing decisions are easy in hindsight aren't they? Now you can experience thrills, spills and laughter whilst making those high-risk calls in the moment, using real-life crime scenarios from Alfie's personal casebook. This show is challenging, thought-provoking and always fun. 'Fascinating, funny and weirdly life-affirming' (Guardian). 'Lots of well-crafted jokes and a large dash of police gallows humour' (Telegraph). 'If Ted Hastings had a Yorkshire accent' (Jed Mecurio Fan).

How do acts like Alfie’s get so many new jokes for their shows!? – 6 series (and a 7th underway) on radio 4 so there’s no using the same ones twice!
This, for me, was the perfect foil to Abigail Rolling’s show Shit Lawyer as an insight into policing (though Alfie’s politics went no further than to nod at under-resourcing) through a real life case of ‘Cuckooing’. The jokes were fast and furious with a great deal of (encouraged) audience participation; an audience whose ignorance was handled gently and respectfully while our assumptions concerning the balance between policing and civil liberties were constantly confounded.
As is the case on his radio 4 shows, there is always a denouement and usually a twist. This one was moving and I certainly left the venue wiser.
