Fred MacAulay Live 2017
Saturday 01 July 2017, 20:00
Having had a successful sell-out Scottish Tour in 2016, and ahead of his annual attendance at EdFringe (this will be his 29th), Fred is on the road again around Scotland (with a few trips over Hadrian's Wall) with a stand-up show for 2017.
With so much happening politically at home and abroad, there's no shortage of material for comedians.
Are you worried about the future after Brexit? How do you plan to celebrate the triggering of Article 50. And speaking of 'triggering' could Trump really kick off the war that’ll not only end all wars, but the whole freaking planet!
The world is in an awful mess, says Trump. "Donald, start flicking through the channels on your TV mate for f*** sake. It's a beautiful place." Someone should really show him some Attenborough programmes about tiny mammals. FAKE SHREWS!
Fred says "Every comedian worth his salt has Trump material. I'm probably the only comic who has suffered PERSONALLY as a result of his election. Turnberry is one of my favourite courses, but as a small personal protest against Trump's blatant racism and misogyny I've decreed that I'll never play the course again whilst it's under his stewardship!" It's this kind of gesture that will hopefully make Trump think again.....!!!
As for Brexit, will it lead to the triggering of Indyref2? The gloves might soon be off with Theresa May and Nicola Sturgeon. The gloves might, but the shoes won't. And they're good shoes aren't they. And as for Kezia Dugdale.....whoever is plucking her eyebrows, PLEASE STOP.
Fred might not have the answers to political questions (or else he would have been on Question Time) but one thing is for sure, after nearly 30 years on stage, he'll have a bloody good laugh about it all. And so will you.
Fred's brand of humour mixes cheek, sarcasm and satire and has entertained people for three decades. If you've seen him before, you know it's good comedy. And for new fans, come and see the man once described as "Scotland's rising star of comedy" and now "Legend".
