For Your Viewing Pleasure ... I Recommend ...


I’m posting today in my capacity as self appointed publicist for Craig Ferguson.

Craig has a comedy special airing this weekend. You can see ‘A Wee Bit O’ Revolution’ on Comedy Central this Sunday, March 22 at 10 PM EST. And of course one of the wonders of basic cable Comedy Central is that they will then repeat the special throughout the month.

Much like the way I repeat going to his stand-up shows. I’ve said it before – it is not stalking if you buy a ticket.



You can see 2 short clips of the special HERE and HERE although neither of them is a very good showing of how wonderfully funny and enchanting Craig is.

You can also view tons of videos from his late night show HERE AT THE OFFICIAL CBS SITE

There are so many reasons to see Craig’s stand-up show. He is delightful to look at – in person the blue eyes sparkle and his energy just flies off the stage. I won’t deny that his Scottish accent is music to my ears but it’s what he says that is truly magical. Rather than tell joke after joke Craig reinvents the lost art of storytelling. From the tale of his first visit to America at the age of 13 through his drinking days and up to his current standing as newly married – third time’s the charm – and winning the ratings war with that other guy – Jiminy Cricket is his name? – Craig will not disappoint.

Treat yourself this weekend. Celebrate spring with a wee touch of the fresh air of comedy that is Craig Ferguson.

A DVD version of his comedy special goes on sale Tuesday, March 24. I ordered several copies early – to avoid disappointment.

He is hilarious. And hot.

Thanks for more eye candy. Can't tell you how much it means to me that you would go out of your way to post hot guy photos for me to come look at.

You're a true friend. ;)

I wish I could stay awake to see him, as it is, we record The Daily Show and watch it the following evening right after the news .. a nice contrast ..

Shelly said...

He's cool, he's cute, he's funny...but my fave is smart..oooo...I loove the smart/funny ones.

Something about a Scottish accent...

Richard said...

I stay up late a few nights a week to catch his monologue which is usually a stream of consciousness bit that always makes me laugh.

Trouble for me is he comes on at 12:00 Midnight and it wears an old boy out staying up that late too much.

Dianne said...

lisa - just for you kiddo ;)

daryl - you made me laugh so hard - "contrast" indeed - I know which one I trust

shelly - I love the smart ones too - people tease me about having a crush based on his looks but it is his incredible manic, twisted, brilliant mind that is so sexy

raven - I know, I know! ;)

rich - he comes on at 12:37 here!! but insomnia seems to be hanging on to me so bless him for keeping me company

Lisa said...

Awww. . . how sweet that you posted this, Dianne. :) I can't wait!

bobbie said...

He should be paying you. Send him a copy of your blog post some time.

Thanks for the heads-up. I have one of those sattelite dishes with a bazillion channels, and the on-screen show guide always makes my eyes glaze over, and I miss a lot of good stuff.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Right, I'll check it out!

Sylvia K said...

I love him!!! Will try to find some DVDs, we don't have TV anymore and he's one of the few things that I miss!! Have a great weekend!

Who is Craig Ferguson? My old lady won't let me stay up until 10 anyway.

Jeni said...

Sometimes -thanks to my wild and wacky sleep patterns -I fall asleep in the chair and oversleep thus missing good old Craig but when I am awake, alert -he is my choice on those late-nite viewings, for sure. And, just when did he get married again anyway? Apparently I have nodded off through way to many of his shows or so it would appear. Rats! Spoils my dreams completely there as I was thinking maybe he might just be interested in an older woman this time around. Yes, I know -in my dreams -but hell, you gotta have dreams of some kind don't 'cha and what better to dream about than Craig Ferguson, those beautiful eyes, that sparkling wit and yes indeed, that Scottish accent too! Oh well, I can always hope the marriage doesn't work, can't I? Or is that too vile?

Anndi said...

He makes my heart go pitter patter :)

Smart, funny, that voice... *sigh*

Dianne said...

lisa - neither can I ;)
in the privacy of my own home I can recite the stories along with him, you really can't do that in a theater

bobbie - I do it out of love ;)

deborah - my cable guide isn't much better - I often just check online - I know you're going to enjoy it

rob - I hope you do, I'm sure you'll love hime

sylvia - he's all over youtube and the CBS link has tons of stuff - once the special airs there will be even more on youtube

mark - he's a good guy - he did a show in Detroit and said it reminded him of Glasgow with more guns - he felt right at home
they'll repeat it at an earlier time ;)

jeni - they got married right before Christmas, they've been together for years - I'd love to hate her but she seems lovely and he gets a goofy smile when he talks about her - oh well - ;)

anndi - I know!

Don't just shoot for the publicist job, you two should go on a date :o)

Travis said...

He is hilarious. I like a good joke, but the comedy I've always loved comes from stories.

SnoopMurph said...

I cannot WAIT to see this! My husband and I have set the time to watch it! I love Craig, hoping he will return to Phoenix soon!

Smalltown RN said...

I have seen him perform before and I just love how he says it as it is...great sense of humour...and as you said...not bad on the eyes either....I will be watching tonight...
