Thirty years ago, on his 30th birthday, a young accountant decided that there must be more to life than crunching numbers.

Fast forward through a career on television and radio, coupled with thousands of stand-up gigs and now Fred MacAulay is touring again.
Seen on Have I Got News For You, QI and Mock The Week. Heard on Radio 4 in The Newsquiz, Just A Minute, The Unbelievable Truth, Bridget Christie Minds The Gap and most recently Fred at The Stand.
Three separate reviews in 2017 described Fred's live shows as 'Stand-Up Masterclass' and 'Hilarious'.
