Craig Ferguson

Holy Crackers! Craig Ferguson, hilarious host of the Emmy-nominated Late Late Show, is coming to town. He might even provide you a new set of abs via the finest form of indoor exercise: laughter. His personality is that of a chatty child crossed with the Energizer Bunny. His observational and self-effacing humor produces digressions within anecdotes within ad-libs. His tangents are just as amusing as his scripted jokes, often more so. Not to mention that he’s Scottish, which he works to his advantage, charming the crowd with oddball phrases and mocking his own accent—and others', too. Today a reformed alcoholic, recently minted U.S. citizen, TV star, and author (American on Purpose), the former punk-rock drummer has come a long way from Glasgow. KRISTY HAMILTON
