Comedy at the Flo is 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. You can book tickets here.

On other days, Alfie performs at comedy clubs around London. Which is uselessly vague, he agrees, but he does post gigs on Instagram.

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 interview people affected by the news.
