Storyline

Craig Ferguson wants to tell a joke. And he'll try to finish the joke. But he may not remember to get to the punchline, because he's distracted by hysterical thoughts of fatherhood, Helen of Troy, and shark penises. The host of CBS's The Late Late Show unleashes his trademark stream-of-consciousness comedy before a sold-out Washington, DC crowd. Definitely not for children. Or the easily offended. Or Mel Gibson.

definitely worth watching

Ferguson is definitely my favourite late night show host. Right from the start, his tenure as Craig Killborn's successor amazed me. His wit, intelligence and improvisational ability makes him one of the funniest man on television.

In this special, Ferguson delivers his familiar style of riffing on bits about parenthood, addiction, Sean Connery, etc... Familiar themes, nothing groundbreaking and a bit safe, but still he delivers the laughs.

My only problem with the whole thing was his first routine on parenthood, I heard it all before (Jim Gaffigan, Louis C.K., Bill Cosby). These jokes felt familiar and tired. Still, this show is definitely worth watching.

I give a B- for the jokes and a A+ for the contagious personality and charismatic delivery.
