Craig Ferguson was born in 1962 in Glasgow, Scotland. Ferguson originally had aspirations to work as an electronic technician, but a visit to New York City to stay with an uncle in the early 1980’s opened his eyes to new possibilities, and he became interested in a potential career in entertainment. After briefly dabbling with music while playing in a rock band, Ferguson created a fictional comedic character, “Bing Hitler,” which became a huge hit at the 1986 Festival Fringe in Edinburgh.
Other opportunities immediately followed for Craig, including the creation of television pilot for The Craig Ferguson Show. While the show wasn’t picked up, it expanded Craig Ferguson’s exposure as a comedian and led him to other roles, notably Brad Majors in the Rocky Horror Show (1991), Father MacLean in Bad Boy Johnny and the Prophets of Doom (1994), and Oscar Madison in The Odd Couple, again at the Edinburgh Fringe. In 1993, Craig Ferguson created the show Dirt Detective, touring the Scottish countryside and examining its archaeological history. The Ferguson Theory came next, but after its cancellation in 1994, Craig moved to Los Angeles to embark on a career in the United States.
Ferguson’s first opportunity arrived after being cast on The Drew Carey Show in the role of Mr. Wick, which would last for seven years. During this productive period, Craig also began writing screenplays, three of which eventually became three films in which he also starred: Saving Grace, The Big Tease, and I’ll Be There. He also appeared in the movies Lenny the Wonder Dog, Chain of Fools, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, How to Train Your Dragon, The Ugly Truth, and Kick-Ass.
Currently, Craig Ferguson can be seen on his own late night talk show, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, which aired in 2005. By the end of the millennium’s first decade, Ferguson’s ratings for the show were surpassing those of his competitors, and the show itself has earned both Emmy nominations and Peabody Awards.
In addition to his achievements in comedy and entertainment, Craig Ferguson’s novel, Between the Bridge and the River (2006), has enjoyed enormous success. His memoirs, American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot were equally successful, and the audio book version of the work has earned Craig a Grammy nomination.
