Craig Ferguson
Craig Ferguson
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Ferguson got his start in the entertainment industry as a drummer for some of the worst punk bands in the UK. Too wimpy to be in punk rock, he started acting. He played Drew Carey’s boss, Nigel Wick, in The Drew Carey Show from 1996-2003.

Ferguson has also become a huge success on the North American comedy circuit. He performs all over the country and has sold out Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall. Additionally, Craig has three widely acclaimed standup comedy specials: A Wee Bit o’ Revolution which premiered on Comedy Central and was released on Home Video in 2009, Does This Need To Be Said, which premiered on Epix in February 2011 and was released on Home Video in Fall 2011 and I’m Here To Help, which premiered on Netflix in March of 2013.

Ferguson has written the feature films The Big Tease and Saving Grace. In 2003 he made his directorial debut with I’ll Be There, which he also wrote and starred in. I’ll Be There went on to receive the Audience Award for Best Film at the Aspen, Dallas and Valencia Film Festivals. Craig was also named “Best New Director” at the Napa Valley Film Festival. Ferguson’s other film credits include Niagara Motel, Prendimi ‘lanima, Life Without Dick, Chain of Fools, Born Romantic and The Big Tease. Craig was in DreamWorks’ animated feature, How To Train Your Dragon, as the Viking, “Gobber”, a role he will reprise in 2014 sequel. In 2011 Craig portrayed “Owl” in the Disney classic, Winnie The Pooh, and this year he played “Lord Macintosh” in Pixar’s Oscar winning animated feature, Brave.

In April 2006, Ferguson debuted his first novel, Between the Bridge and the River, which was on the New York Times bestseller list. In 2009, Harper Collins published Ferguson’s memoir, American On Purpose, which debuted at Number Four on the New York Times bestseller list and received a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album.

Presently he hosts The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on CBS. He won 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.
