Fred MacAulay

rib-achingly funny, one of the funniest men alive” – Sunday Times

Fred MacAulay presents MacAulay & Co, the weekday morning show on BBC Radio Scotland. He also regularly appears on Have I Got News For You, Mock the Week and QI.

After a decade working as an accountant, Fred took the plunge and is now one of the most popular stand-ups on the circuit. He was in fact the first ever Scottish compere at The Comedy Store in London. His gentle sarcasm and intelligent, wry observations entertain audiences both north and south of the border.

A firm festival favourite, Fred has appeared from the Edinburgh Fringe to Melbourne’s top comedy club, The Last Laugh, and a sell-out appearances at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival.

A consummate host, Fred presented the first series of The 11 O’Clock Show and co-hosted the sports chat show McCoist & MacAulay. He continues to front Scottish TV’s Fred MacAulay’s Fringe from the Edinburgh Festival.

Fred is a Radio 4 regular, appearing on everything from Just a Minute and The News Quiz to The Unbelievable Truth. In the cause of charity, he also displayed his questionable vocal talents on Comic Relief does Fame Academy.

Fred has also successfully featured and presented many programmes for BBC Scotland. He co-hosted the very popular travelling chat show McCoist & MacAulay (1998/1999) which was broadcast throughout the UK, also Life According To Fred (1999/2000), Hoots (2000), and Simply Fred (2000).

Firmly disproving the myth that accountants are a humourless bunch, this former number-cruncher has a calculated wit – always intelligent, but never overly taxing. Irrespective of whether an audience is divided between young and old, alternative or mainstream, the broad appeal of Fred MacAulay always adds up to a side-splitting night out.
