MacAulay And Co - In The Press
Funny man Fred, who presents the final audition of his BBC radio show MacAulay and Co today, survived 18 years on the airwaves without one swearing blooper - until he dropped the "C-bomb" two weeks ago.

On Monday's MacAulay and Co which came live from Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the EICC, the fire alarm went off during the show. We were able to film Fred and sidekick Susan Calman come back from the brink and treat the audience to exclusive chat.

It's August: you may have noticed from the cute pictures of animals and coverage of the Edinburgh Festival plastered across the media. Fred MacAulay is broadcasting his radio show direct from one of the many venues for the next two weeks, offering a daily pick of the fringe. Largely focused on comedy, MacAulay & Co brings listeners a mixture of stand-up and interviews, with a surprisingly large number of guests. It's a real fringe experience - some acts are a bit disappointing but there are so many that if you don't like one, another will be along in a minute. Wednesday's show proved to be the best so far with Doc Brown, Mark Watson and Glyes Brandreth. Other highlights include Sarah Millican on Monday and Sean Hughes on Tuesday. As an extra treat, fellow Scottish comic Susan Calman joins Fred every day too.
Just before Fred left the building we grabbed him for a couple of minutes and quizzed him about what we'll hear from MacAulay And Co during the next couple of weeks while the show comes from the Edinburgh Festival.
