Edinburgh Fringe: Fred MacAulay brings Festival laughs to the Balmoral Hotel

Edinburgh’s Balmoral Hotel is to return to the Fringe with an evening of laughter in the company of funnyman Fred MacAulay.

The Rocco Forte owned hotel will welcome MacAulay back to the Capital for two shows combining decadent drinks, delicious food and late night stand up comedy.

Kicking off the evening on Thursday, August 4, Fred MacAulay and Friends will find the eponymous comedian hosting stand-ups Marc Jennings, Krystal Evans and Seann Walsh between 7pm and 8.45pm.

Having presented MacAulay and Co on BBC Radio Scotland for almost 18 years, Fred’s witticisms are the product of years of experience on the live circuit. His guests on the first show have similarly impressive credits, Jennings was Scottish Comedian of the Year winner in 2019 while American comedian Evans has been named a Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year finalist. Walsh gained praise from the likes of Jack Dee and the late Jeremy Hardy after appearances on BBC’s Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow.
