Laughing uproariously in public is sometimes inappropriate, which is why people feel most comfortable laughing in comedy clubs or into a jar in the bathroom. Let it all out with this GrouponLive deal to see Craig Ferguson at the Hershey Theatre. For $23, you get one G-Pass for seating in rows S–DD of the orchestra section on Tuesday, October 9, at 8 p.m. (up to a $45.60 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
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 at the historic Hershey Theatre. 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 cable comedy specials, Does This Need to Be Said and A Wee Bit O’ Revolution, Craig hits the stage with his standup muscles fully flexed. Road-testing new material for an upcoming comedy special, Craig’s upcoming act is unpredictable yet assuredly loaded with roguish charm, honest (but never mean) opinions, and the odd moments where four-letter words sound like Gaelic lullabies.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
