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.
