Comedy 

Alfie has performed at comedy clubs across the UK, including the Comedy Store and Komedia, and on radio shows like Union Jack Radio's One Night Stand. He has also performed above pubs, below pubs, and inside the walls of pubs. He was a finalist for the Komedia New Comedy Award in 2020 and a runner-up for the BBC's New Comedy Award in 2019. 

 

He has also written for BBC Radio 4's The Now Show, The Guardian, The Observer, and BBC Radio 4 Extra's Newsjack.

Shows

Not Another Comedy Night is a misleadingly named comedy night hosted by Alfie and Adam Flood every Wednesday at The Florence pub in Herne Hill. It features a mix of new and pro acts trying jokes out in a fun and laid-back way.

On other days, Alfie performs at comedy clubs around London. Which is uselessly vague, he agrees. 

 

 

 
 

Journalism

Alfie has written for The Guardian since 2016. He was a commissioning editor on the education desk before joining the 'community' team in early 2021, where his job is to write interviews with interesting people and to edit content sent in by readers.
