How many of you know that Craig Ferguson started his entertainment career as a drummer for some of the worst punk bands in the UK? I would say not many. Since he wasn't exactly punk material, the future TV host began acting. He played Drew Carey’s boss, Nigel Wick, in “The Drew Carey Show” from 1996 to 2003.
Ferguson performs his comedy all over North America to crowds who love him. He’s even sold out Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Additionally, Ferguson has three widely acclaimed standup comedy specials, written and starred in countless feature films, and written two New York Times bestsellers, one of which received a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album.
He got his first Emmy nomination in 2006, as well as receiving the 2009 Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting for his interview with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Right now, you can see Ferguson as host of “The Late Late Show” on CBS.
Craig Ferguson will perform at the Trump Taj Mahal Arena on Saturday, May 10. Showtime is at 8 p.m. Tickets are $49, $39, and $29 (plus applicable taxes and fees). Tickets are on sale now and you can get yours through Ticketmaster or at the Taj box office.
Enjoy the show!
