Frisco Fred is “The world’s only near sighted comic/magician/juggler/escape-artist & tightrope walker” . He started juggling as a hobby in College in 1975, started performing in local festivals in ’76 and has never looked back. From the Edinburgh Fringe to the Great Wall of China he’ll go “Around the world for a laugh”. His major Festival engagements include The New York Comedy Festival, 6 years at the Edinburgh Fringe, The Lincoln Center Out Of Doors Festival and The Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. Fred is a regular headliner for Carnival Cruise Line as well as the producer of the San Francisco comedy series Comedy On The Square.


Beginning in February, 2003 Fred Anderson started Comedy On The Square to present alternative Comedy, Magic, Variety and Circus Arts at an intimate venue in San Francisco´s Union Square theater district. In addition since 2004 Fred has produced touring shows for the Edinburgh Fringe and this year will present two shows (“AWESOME – I Can Juggle!” and “All Star MAGIC & COMEDY – Direct From San Francisco!” ) at the ZOO venue.
