Biography – Fred MacAulay
With his popular morning radio show and a string of TV credits, he is undoubtedly one of the most famous faces of Scottish comedy today. His on screen reputation and on air witticisms are the product of years of experience on the live circuit, including a stint as the first ever-Scottish compere at the Comedy Store in London.
He arrived relatively late to the world of stand-up comedy, starting at the age of 31. He has gone on to be a regular performer at the Edinburgh Fringe (he will clock up his 25th year there in 2013) and at comedy festivals worldwide. He has been presenting the very funny and eventful MacAulay and Co on BBC Radio Scotland since June 1997.
He has successfully featured in and presented many programmes for BBC TV: he hosted three series of the talk show McCoist and MacAulay and two seasons of Life According to Fred. He also fronted Life According To Fred, Hoots and Simply Fred
