The Scottish-born comedian entered the world of late night comedy following a diverse and eclectic career that encompassed film, television and the stage. Since taking the helm of the “Late, Late Show” on Jan. 3, 2005, the show has set all-time viewer records in the seven years that it has been on the air.
“We are thrilled to welcome back to The Venetian Showroom someone as talented and funny as Craig Ferguson,” said Chris Yancey, executive director of entertainment at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “We have been huge fans of Craig’s for many years and can’t wait for him to return to our stage.”
Ferguson has become a huge success in the U.S. comedy circuit. He has performed to sold out theaters all over the country, including Carnegie Hall in Oct. 2010, and has two widely acclaimed standup comedy specials, “A Wee Bit O’ Revolution”, which premiered on Comedy Central and “Does This Need To Be Said.”
