So here we have the very first-ever live stand-up DVD offering from
"TV's Craig Ferguson", and what a great offering it is. For over an
hour, the man whose name is an anagram for 'a surging force' holds
court at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston, hilariously riffing on a myriad
of topics including (but not limited to) his days as an alcoholic, his
fondness for junkies, the sex/drugs/r&r lifestyle, James Bond,
Scotland, his mother, being a new American citizen and the gargantuan
reptile that lives in his pants (apparently there's nothing 'wee' about
This is a must for fans of the TV show, needless to say, but if you're not familiar with The Late Late Show and you're in the market for some savvy, irreverently outrageous - but never mean-spirited - humor, this is for you as well.
There's also a really cool interview with Ferguson, where he shares at length what it means to him to have become an American citizen. Also included: a speech he gave on July 4th in Boston, where he expounds further on being a citizen and what America and freedom mean to him. Very inspiring stuff.

If you like the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson, you'll love this
It's basically a 2-hour long Craig Ferguson monolouge, but with cursing.
Ferguson makes fun of many different things, such as drugs, alcohol, rehab, Scotland, Sean Connery, his genitalia, movie casting, his mother, and octopuses. All while telling his story about going to Rehab, coming to America, living the American dream, getting casted on the Drew Cary show, and making you laugh while you he does it.
I laughed so hard I cried. I haven't laughed this hard at a comedy special since last time I saw a Jerry Seinfeld skit.
Ferguson is insanely funny, and you'll enjoy him just as much as I did.
Craig Ferguson is great -- he has so much energy, and although he is
pretty bouncy on his talk show, he is even more bouncy on stage doing
stand-up. The gloves are off, he is able to say and do whatever he
wants... and he does.
I love that he calls out Sean Connery for "Red October" (even if the joke is thirty years old). But then the "Highlander" thing... genius. So true on how movies cast ethnic or national roles...
Ferguson's monologues should probably be collected on DVD... a "best of" Ferguson, that could be all funny and several months long. It would be some of the funniest stuff ever released to the public (far more so than Leno or Letterman could do in such a short period of time).
