Craig Ferguson Vegas Show Tickets
Craig Ferguson's first appearance on a Las Vegas stage was in 2007 and since then he revisited Vegas on a number of occasions with ever increasing success. His routines are not for the faint hearted as his humor does include adult material. No subject and no celebrity is out of bounds for his cutting wit. However, he is also not afraid to make fun of himself, including his past, his life, friends or family. One thing to remember, if you don't like to participate, make sure you are not sitting in one the front rows or get up out of your seat during Craig's routine. If given the opportunity he will, in the nicest possible way, make you part of the act.
To say the life and career of Craig Ferguson have been interesting would be like saying the sun is a bit hot. The journey from a child living in a council house in Glasgow, to being one of the best-known entertainers in the world including the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas, has seen Craig hit many heights and some lows along the way.
He admits having to recover from the depths of alcoholism, but having done so and then risen to the pinnacle of late night television in the USA did not happen by chance. It has taken a lot of hard work and no small amount of talent either. His talents include acting, stand-up comedy, writing, directing, impressions, voice overs and he has even co-hosted the Emmy Awards. Here is some of that journey.
Craig Ferguson's entertainment career started, not in comedy but as the drummer in a punk rock band performing in Scotland. Having been persuaded to try comedy, he eventually took on the persona 'Bing Hitler' and despite the bizarre name he enjoyed success, most notably at the Edinburgh Festival. His career blossomed through the 1980s and he went on to a number of successful British TV, film and stage appearances, including the Rocky Horror Show in London's West End
Craig's first noteworthy appearance in the USA was on The Drew Carey in 1996, and he continued on the show until 2003. During this time, he made many film appearances in such films as, 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events’ and 'The Ugly Truth’. Another bow to his string that surfaced was his ability to do voice characterizations and in this field, he voiced characters in 'How to Train Your Dragon’ and 'Winnie the Pooh’. He also found time to make other TV guest appearances as well as writing and directing.
