Fred MacAuley - Stratford ArtsHouse

Stratford Editorial 5th Nov, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

SCOTS comedian Fred MacAulay ponders the future for his homeland and his own family at Stratford ArtsHouse tonight (Friday).

MacAuley – known to many for tv and radio appearances – is embarking on his first tour since 2012.

During which he looks at his family life at home and looks forward to how his country will shape up after the referendum of 2014.

As well as looking backwards and forwards, he’ll probably look sideways at politics, sport, the environment and, without sounding too like a brief for a newspaper, there will undoubtedly be a colour supplement with a look at ‘celebrity’.

He has a string of TV appearances under his sporran, from Mock the Week, QI and Have I Got News For You to a guest-spot on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in the US.

He has presented many programmes for the BBC, including McCoist and MacAulay, Life According to Fred, Hoots, Simply Fred, Scots on the Box and On The Road with Martell Maxwell, and he lasted seven out of 11 nights when he sang on Comic Relief Does Fame Academy.

Further charity challenges saw him kayak the Caledonian Canal for Sport Relief and scale Mt Kilimanjaro.

He has also guest-starred on various Radio 4 panel shows such as I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, Just A Minute, The Unbelievable Truth and is a regular panelist on The News Quiz.
