Perthshire-raised funny man Fred MacAulay launches his 30th anniversary tour with a gig at the Byre Theatre in St Andrews on Saturday May 5.
The 21-date tour of Scotland, which also talks in venues such as the Webster Theatre, Arbroath (June17); Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline (July 14) and Pitlochry Festival Theatre (Sep 23), celebrates three decades since his initiation into the world of stand-up comedy.
Nowadays, Fred is acknowledged as one of the country’s finest and most recognisable stand-ups.
He presented a daily BBC Scotland radio programme MacAulay and Co for 18 years and has appeared on numerous satirical panel TV shows including Have I Got News For You, QI and Mock the Week.
He’s also been a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe.
But he was in his 30s before he took the plunge and decided to give up his steady work as a financial accountant to pursue full-time comedy.
