Don Maclean MBE is one of Britain’s leading TV, Cabaret and After Dinner performers.
He first came to the public’s attention through his appearances on “Crackerjack” and “The Black & White Minstrel Show” which he hosted for three years on television and five years on stage.
He also hosted successful game shows such as “Mouthtrap” and “First Letter First”. He was a regular guest on “Celebrity Squares” and hosted three series of “Keen Types” for BBC 2. He also devised “The Cheapest Show on Telly” appearing alongside Lenny Henry. More recently he has hosted “Songs of Praise” for BBC Religious Broadcasting.
Radio has played a major part in Don’s career. The BBC have featured him in his own series “Keep It Maclean” and “Maclean Up Britain”. He has been a regular team member on “Wits End”, team captain on “The Press Gang” and Quizmaster on “The Clever Dickathalon” which he also devised. He has also hosted three series of “Are You Sitting Comfortably”. In 2006 Don ended a fifteen year stint hosting his own programme on Radio 2.
He has appeared in six Royal Command Shows the latest being a Royal Gala for the Princess Royal. His 30th Anniversary in Show Business was marked with the award of a coveted Silver Heart from the Variety Club of Great Britain, and in 1997 Birmingham University conferred upon him an Honorary Degree of Master of Arts.
In the 2001 Honours List he was made an MBE.
Now one of Britain’s most experienced panto performers, Don has appeared in 35 productions, the last 12 as “Dame”.
Don has two very distinct and different After Dinner Acts.
The First a brilliantly funny routine chock full of good clean gags, thoughts and observations, followed by some whimsical operatic favourites as you’ve never heard them before!
The Second is an account of his 15yrs presenting Good Morning Sunday for BBC Radio 2. As you would expect from such a long running show, there are more than enough stories and humorous tales to keep everyone chuckling along!
Don Maclean is a brilliantly talented performer with a charismatic and engaging personality. He is one of the few remaining speakers and comedians in the country that has a completely “clean” act. This of course sets Don apart from so many other performers and makes him ideal for any occasion.
The entire team at First & Foremost Entertainment are proud and delighted to represent Don Maclean and cannot recommend his services highly enough.
