How he presents

Unbelievable funny and truly entertaining Fred is much in demand as an after-dinner speaker and awards presenter.

In Detail

Although he was a full time accountant until 1993, Fred started out in stand-up comedy in 1988. He made his TV presenting debut on STV's entertainment/variety show The Funny Farm and made successful appearances on some of BBC1's top programmes such as Have I Got News For You and They Think Its All Over. But it is on BBC Scotland where Fred has become a national institution. He has presented McCoist & MacAulay (1998/1999), Life According to Fred (1999/2000), Hoots (2000) and Simply Fred (2000). 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 is a terrific comedian with a knack for saying controversial things with impact while at the same time giving the impression he doesn't truly believe a word of what he has just said. With his intelligent, calculated wit, irrespective of the age of an audience, or if they are alternative or mainstream, the broad appeal of Fred MacAulay always adds up to a side-splitting night out.
