Some people are fab. Get over it
Just who is Alfie Ordinary? According to the man himself: “Alfie is the son of a drag queen, so a drag prince, and he identifies as fabulous”. His first show debuted in his home town of Brighton in 2017 and he commented: “I’d been developing the character of Alfie for about two years and wrote the show in parts and was trying it out at cabaret shows. Then I stumbled across the idea of setting Alfie’s world in a school, which became Madame LeCoq’s Preparatory School for Fabulous Boys, and the idea became a lot more solid. I then realised that I was touching upon something that I had a strong personal connection with, the coming of age, queer story, and I knew that Alfie’s first show had to be about that”. Since then Alfie has been listed as one of the top 20 UK drag acts by Hiskind Magazine and been in huge demand right around the world. So if you’re looking for an excuse to let your hair down in the run up to Christmas (and I can rather sense that you are) then why don’t you pop along to see Alfie and ask him what it’s all about.
