Fred MacAulay is back at The Stand Comedy Club in Glasgow doing what he does best - making people laugh.

This new series brings another selection of some of the best of stand-up comedians working in the UK right now. Some you’ll know and some you won’t - yet.

In this first episode, Fred introduces the incredible Ria Lina who celebrates her favourite child with her unique parenting style, the challenging Eshaan Akbar sees through thinly-veiled racism on public transport, the self-confessed underdressed Susan Riddell wants part of her body to be dishwasher friendly, and one of the country’s favourite stand-ups Hal Cruttenden plans his own funeral down to the gristly end.
