He Figured It Out ...

Every time I think I can't possibly come up with another example of why Craig Fergsuon is brilliant he provides another example.

Watch this pre-monologue spot. It's priceless. Craig usually opens his show with insane and absurd puppet segments or bits with audience members. He's only got 2 or 3 minutes before CBS insists a round of commercials be shown - they used to interrupt his monologue but there was such an uproar from viewers that they came up with the "beginning spot" instead.

Craig does more with these few moments than most comedians do with an entire set.

Especially Monday night ...



and as always, there is Hope ...

Indeed he did seem to figure it out as young and stupid does seem to be the way a lot of people go through life - or at least acting it as sometimes I've got to wonder if anyone could possibly be as dumb as some people act?!?

Thank goodness for Hope!

linda - and they're proud of it!!
Hope sends hugs

He has it figured out alright

And proof of our idiocy is that people actually watch FOX.

But with Hope, we can console ourselves, and even smile.

Dianne said...

bobbie - when he talked about imbecility rather than experience and cleverness I was outright cheering!!
Hope sends hugs, that pic was her first time in her stroller
it was a big day for her
her first trip to Brooklyn as well

The video is great! Hope is beautiful!

I "borrowed" the video and posted it to Cont. Criticism with a link back to you!

Have a great day!

Much as I love Craig Ferguson and would dearly love to watch the video you posted -no can do! For some unknown reason, my audio has decided to take a trip to some unknown destination. Love the pic today of Hope -too darned cute!

Thanks for posting that! I love how he delivers the line "That's against the laws of the universe!" Comic perfection. :-)

tim - I'm glad you're posting it on FB, Craig needs to be advertised everywhere :)

jacob - I have tried a ton of times to get your blog today but IE keeps throwing me off
I don't have Firefox on the laptop so I'll have to wait til later to try again on the office PC, talk about more tube problems ;)

jeni - it's always something isn't it!! damn computers

daryl - she is!!! LOL
there was another shot even more Churchill'ish but it was too blurry

sparkling - I like that too :)
his timing is always spot on

Jacob said...

Hi Dianne -

I've been having some problems today, too! IE 8 is terrible, though...

You can download Mozilla Firefox in just a couple of minutes -- costs nothing...(but you know that!)...

I never use IE unless I absolutely must!

Hope all else is well!

HA! Wish I could stay up late enough to watch this guy. I like him a lot.

I have been in love with Craig since his “3 minute baked potato” and rant about the lack of James Bond spy tools….

Lost of <3 for him!

Patti said...

Never heard of Craig. He's great! He hit the nail on the head with this monologue. Young and stupid.There are way too many of them out there.
Thanks for sharing, Dianne.

I really love how you end your posts "and as always, there is Hope..."

That is lovely, and she is so precious, Nana!
