MacAulay And Co is a daily magazine show on BBC Radio Scotland hosted by Fred MacAulay.

Each year, for two or three all-too-brief weeks in August, the show comes live from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Joined by Susan Calman and a live audience, Fred showcases the best of the Festival and interviews many of the festival's top comedy stars.

The show is broadcast on Radio Scotland in the morning alongside regular news and features, before being repeated comedy-only in an hour-long format later each evening, on Radio 4 Extra (previously Radio 7).

Our Review: We love this show. MacAulay And Co is the perfect start to the day for comedy fans at the festival, and allows those that can't make it to Edinburgh to join in the fun. During the two weeks, Fred interviews pretty much every comic that matters - and many perform a short set featuring their highlights too.
