Comedian, Host and After-Dinner Speaker:
Despite his extensive TV and radio commitments, Fred MacAulay has never lost the ability – or the desire – to play in front of a live audience.
Still a regular on the London cabaret circuit, Fred remains a huge hit on the UK comedy scene touring throughout the country.
A very popular after-dinner speaker and awards host, this former number-cruncher has a calculated wit – always intelligent, but never overly taxing.
Irrespective of whether an audience is divided between young and old, alternative or mainstream, the broad appeal of Fred MacAulay always adds up to a side-splitting night out.
