Despite not having a band or "A-list" guests, Craig is consistently funny 5 days a week, with improvised monologues, puppets, viewer emails, and sketches. He frequently does sketches about Sean Connery, Michael Caine, and Prince Charles.
Craig has also been in The Drew Carey Show, and has written two novels: Between The Bridge and the River, and his autobiography American on Purpose, which comes out on September 22, 2009.
In my opinion, the best late-night tv show out there.
Me: "No thanks, I'll be watching Craig Ferguson"
2. Apartment above me: "Ughhh we can't sleep because they're laughing so loud at Craig Ferguson. Maybe we should watch him.....*turn tv on*......BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"
Me: This guy is great.
Anyone nearby: Whatever you say.
WATCH HIM after David Letterman on CBS
Someone else: I KNOW HE WAS SO SEXY AND FUNNY LAST NIGHT! I LOVE THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON!
Person 2: "Nope, I watched Jay Leno."
Person 1: "Oh...Jay...that's a perfect way to waste time. Craig is an actual comedian."
He replaced Craig Kilbourne on January 3, 2005. He was one of four finalists running for the job as host.
He is a rather funny man. Unfortunately he shares the time slot with Conan O'Brien so it's difficult for me to watch Ferguson, but from what I've seen he is a very laid back scottish man, and it's a nice change from the typical comedian.
His show aires at 12:35 EST on CBS right after Letterman.
Me: No, but he's definately better than those tools Letterman and Leno.
He is the Late late show host on after Letterman.
He tells the same jokes every night, but their still hilarious.
He is much shorter in person than you'd think.
He has a really bad warm-up comedian.
He likes to get really close to the camera.
He likes to hit the side of the camera.
He broke a camera during a show once.
He has the same guests on all the time.
He used to have a really cool sound effects machine and email jingles.
He is Scottish
Me: No need, I'm watching Craig Ferguson tonight.
