In 2022 Veteran (I prefer ‘Legend’ FM)Scottish stand-up comedian Fred MacAulay hit the road again with a summer tour of 19 venues around Scotland ahead of his run at Edinburgh Fringe in August.
Stand-up comedy had been hit pretty hard by the pandemic and gigs were cancelled as soon as the country went into Lockdown. The return of audiences to theatres and Stand-Up venues was a delight to see.
So.....there was only one thing for it. Get back out in 2023 and get to some of the places I hadn’t been to in 2022 with an updated show. You can’t stand still in comedy (well you can if the microphone cable is very short) but when much of our lives is concerned with politics.....well we know just how quickly things can change! I’d barely got my pencil sharpened to write gags about Liz Truss and she’d GONE! And she took the UK economy with her.
Expect to hear more tales of Lockdown weddings, gags about complying with the regulations, getting back to work after a long lay-off, things that bound us together.... (like finding out that your bottle bins were too small), the tribulations of getting a train ticket refund, nuisance phone calls ...... and ..... OH YES.......becoming a grandparent for the first time!!
Still regarded as one of the top Scottish comics of his generation, Fred MacAulay can be heard on the radio every Sunday morning from 10:00am till 1pm with a mix of music and chat: (Clyde2/Forth2/Tay2/Westsound/Northsound/MFR).
