Biography

Alfie Joey is the host of the BBC Newcastle breakfast radio show. But wait, there’s more: he’s also a writer, comic, actor, impressionist. And an artist/cartoonist. In May 2017 the North East Art Collective in Newcastle presented a gallery wall of his #AlfArt work and he is also on display at Spennymoor Town Hall. Born into a County Durham coal mining family, Alfie left the region to train to be a Catholic priest, becoming a brother in a religious order. After living a monastic life for 15 years, he decided to leave and become a comedian, squeezing in also a stint as a toy demonstrator in Harrods in between!
