Comic Fred’s game for a laugh with new tour dates

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

FRED MacAu­lay will be un­der­tak­ing a Wee Tour of Scot­land in July.

Af­ter al­most 18 years as a BBC Ra­dio Scot­land morn­ing pro­gramme pre­sen­ter, Fred is re­turn­ing to stand-up comedy, which he has been do­ing for al­most 30 years.

There are 18 tour dates in­clud­ing Fort Wil­liam’s Ne­vis Centre on July 7 (01397 700707 to book) and Mull Theatre on July 8 (01688 302211to book) and a cou­ple of dates on the West­ern Isles at the end of the month.

Au­di­ences can ex­pect a mix of pol­i­tics and ob­ser­va­tional hu­mour as well as some gags. Speak­ing about the tour, Fred said: ‘Like ev­ery other Scot, I’m blown away by the nat­u­ral beauty of our coun­try ... and what better time to travel than in sum­mer. And if it does rain, at least it might be warm.’ A tour of this size round Scot­land is likely to be­come a sta­ple part of Fred’s fu­ture in stand-up, along with re­turn­ing to the Ed­in­burgh Fringe Fes­ti­val in 2017. Only peo­ple aged 14+ are per­mit­ted at any of the tour dates and fur­ther de­tails can be found at www.fred­
