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 MGM Grand 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.
On the Golden Globe–winning HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm, costar and executive producer Jeff Garlin plays a character that indulges in extremely caddish behavior but always comes out more lovable than his cohort Larry David. Unlike his philandering and often selfish alter ego, Jeff Green, the real Jeff is a more sensitive and gregarious creature, as seen in his semiautobiographical movie I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With .
For Garlin’s Built for Comfort standup tour, the affable comedy veteran teaches a master class in self-deprecation and astute observation. With a warmhearted demeanor and earnest and gravely voice––heard in the Pixar films Wall-E and Toy Story 3––Garlin bravely delves into his neurotic miseries to mines laughs with his pickax wit. Whether he’s musing on the battlefields of marriage and weight loss (detailed in his book My Footprint: Carrying the Weight of the World) or riffing with the improv senses honed in his native Chicago, Garlin fans will be grateful to hear his sharp anecdotes without his TV wife Susie’s ceaseless nagging.
Located amid Mashantucket’s rolling hills in the middle of the Foxwoods Resort Casino, Comix Entertainment treats laugh-seeking audiences to shows by the country’s top touring performers.

Before shows, guests can take advantage of happy hour, perusing a menu of tasty appetizers and thirst-quenching drink
