A few months ago, I saw that Craig Ferguson was performing at my local fancy music hall and, on a whim, got a couple of tickets to go check it out. I’m not really a late night person, mostly because I tend to be in bed by 10PM and have little motivation to watch late night shows the day after they air. But, if given the choice, Ferguson would have been my go-to while he was on. I found his sense of humor engaging, his guests fun, and just his general attitude about things really pleasing. So, that said, I didn’t know much about him going into this show. But he was fucking hilarious. I was doubled over laughing at some points of his stand up; he has a charm and a roguishness about him that makes his set up and delivery perfect. Ferguson is a fantastic storyteller and that lead me to picking up one of his books on my last stop through The Book Thing. It took me awhile of stops and starts to read it, but man, it was a goddamn delight.
