TWO comedians who certainly would not have hit it off in their former professions are putting their differences aside to take the stage for a charity gig.
Former police sergeant Alfie Moore and ex-convict Gary Little will both entertain at The Royal George, Greenfield on Saturday, January 12
The event, hosted by Off The Rails Comedy Club, is a raising funds for Saddleworth Rangers Rugby Club, based on Shaw Hall Bank Road.
When Moore entered a stand-up comedy competition in 2007 he had no idea it would eventually lead to him swapping his truncheon for a microphone on a permanent basis.
The transition was smoother than most would suspect too, with working nights and abuse from drunken strangers being just two of the things the roles had in common.
Now he boasts numerous TV appearances, tour support for Sarah Millican and Russell Kane and several sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe.
And 2018 saw Alfie’s critically acclaimed BBC Radio 4 show It’s A Fair Cop return for its fourth series.
Meanwhile, 6ft 3in skinhead Little’s unflinching honesty and openness mean audiences fall in love with his easy charm.
He also has the rare gift of turning mundane, everyday experiences into pure comedy gold, which have made him a firm favourite across the UK.
With several comedy awards under his belt and the respect of his peers, crime is now a thing of the past for Little, unless, of course, he needs an idea for a new show…
Completing the line-up for the evening are Simon Lomas, who was crowned Petfringe Comedian Of The Year 2018, and MC Rob Riley.
The show takes place at The Royal George, Greenfield on Saturday, January 12, starting at 8.30pm.
Tickets cost £15 on the door or £12 in advance. For more information and to book go online:
