MacAulay And Co is a year-round daily morning 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 co-host Susan Calman and a live audience, Fred showcases the best of the Festival and interviews many of the festival's top comedy stars. The programme also features guest stand-up and sketch performances.

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

Kirsty Strain presents additional coverage from the green room.
