Comedian, TV Show Host and Actor, Craig Ferguson at The Ridgefield Playhouse December 3rd!
Craig Ferguson, the Scottish-American television host, comedian, author and actor brings his Hobo Fabulous Tour to The Ridgefield Playhouse Monday, December 3 at 7pm, part of Barts Tree Service Comedy Series, sponsored by SiriusXM and partially underwritten by Nutmeg Livery Service. Best known for his long run as host of the CBS late-night talk show “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and his Daytime Emmy Award-winning game show “Celebrity Name Game,” he currently hosts “The Craig Ferguson Show” on Sirius XM.
Breaking out at The Edinburgh Festival in 1995, Glasgow born comedian Craig Ferguson moved to Los Angeles and put down roots establishing himself as an actor and comedian just a year later on “The Drew Carey Show” as Nigel Wick, a role he played for several seasons. By 2005 he was hosting “The Late Late Show” where he quipped charmingly and often outlandishly in his Scottish accent with celebrities until 2014. His distinctive voice led to voice-over work, in movies like How to Train Your Dragon (2010), Winnie the Pooh (2011) and Brave (2012). Also an author, Ferguson has published two books, Between the Bridge and the River (a novel; 2006) and American on Purpose (a memoir; 2009). Despite his success on “The Late Late Show,” he opted to leave to pursue other opportunities including hosting “Celebrity Name Game,” and “Join or Die with Craig Ferguson,” a history based topical talk show featuring a panel of comedians, experts and other guests. British television show, “Doc Martin,” for which Ferguson wrote 12 episodes, was based on Ferguson’s 2000 British Film Saving Grace, which he co-wrote and starred in.
