Craig Ferguson – Hot and Grumpy
Craig Ferguson from his special I'm Here to Help
Warning: contains swears, sometimes shouted loudly
Although there’s only one Craig Ferguson, there are plenty of Craig Fergusons to choose from. There’s the writer and director who crafted independent comedies such as Saving Grace and I’ll Be There. There’s Nigel Wick, the eccentric nightmare boss he portrayed with relish on the long-running sitcom The Drew Carey Show. He’s also a best-selling novelist, a gifted singer, and a thundering punk-rock drummer. Children know his Scottish brogue from animated blockbusters such as Brave and How to Train Your Dragon, and kids who drink too much coffee on weeknights know him as the Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award–winning host of CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Of his many hats, Ferguson wears the most peering, unfiltered, and achingly funny one in his wild and wily standup act.
Freed from teleprompters and TV censors, Craig lets his impish side shine in an unrestrained evening on stage. Not raunchy or guttural, but giddily randy, Craig’s off-air standup routine rewards mature audiences who appreciate knowing that Craig isn’t really saying “Tootsie-Fruit” on TV. On the heels of his recent comedy specials, Does This Need to Be Said and A Wee Bit O’ Revolution plus Netflix's I'm Here to Help, Craig hits the stage with his standup muscles fully flexed. His act promises to be unpredictable yet assuredly loaded with roguish charm, honest (but never mean) opinions, and the odd moments where four-letter words sound like Gaelic lullabies.
