Fred is one of Scotland's best loved comedians who began his comedy career at the age of 31 making a dramatic move from his former occupation - an accountant.

He has regularly performed at the Edinburgh Festival and toured with his own stand up show as well as appearing at the JUST FOR LAUGHS Festival in Montreal.

He has made many guest appearances on shows such as HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU and THEY THINK IT'S ALL OVER before co-hosting the hugely popular MCCOIST AND MACAULAY.

In addition, Fred has been involved in more than ten series with the BBC in Scotland and the UK. He has hosted BBC Radio Scotland's morning show since 1997 and is a regular panelist on the prestigious Radio 4 production THE NEWS QUIZ, also appearing on JUST A MINUTE and I'M SORRY I HAVEN"T A CLUE.

Despite his extensive TV and radio commitments, Fred has never lost the ability - or the desire - to play in front of a live audience. Fred is still a regular on the London cabaret circuit, a huge hit on the UK comedy scene and a massively popular after-dinner speaker, awards presenter and corporate entertainer.

      Edinburgh -  Classique 

We caught Fred's sell out show at the Edinburgh Festival and we can guarantee he is absolutely wonderful.  A very popular comedian with clever and topical observations and a warm easy manner - recommended!
