Craig Ferguson’s “The Fancy Rascal Tour” heads to Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia


Grammy nominated, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning actor, writer, producer,
director, and comedian Craig Ferguson is making his Event Center debut at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia
on Friday, September 9, 2022.


Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets start at $40 and are available for purchase
now at philadelphia.livecasinohotel.com.

Ferguson is a New York Times bestselling author and has recorded numerous
standup specials for Netflix, Epix, Comedy Central and Amazon. The wildly
popular “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” ran on CBS for 10 years and
remains a cult favorite on YouTube racking up millions of views every year
on fan posted bootleg clips.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Ferguson got his start in the entertainment
industry as a drummer for some of the worst punk bands in the U.K.
Following his musical stint, he began bartending in a local pub in Glasgow
where he was introduced to Sir Michael Boyd, the artistic director of The
Tron Theatre in Glasgow, who persuaded Ferguson to try acting. After
several low paying acting gigs, Ferguson discovered he had a knack for
comedy and was soon the star of his own BBC television show, “The Ferguson
Theory.” After several stints on the UK comedy circuit, Ferguson brought
his act to America in 1995 to star with Betty White and Marie Osmond in the
short-lived ABC comedy, “Maybe This Time.” After the show ended, ABC
decided to add the talented Scotsman to “The Drew Carey Show,” playing Drew
Carey’s boss, ‘Nigel Wick,’ from 1996-2003.

Ferguson has achieved notable success on the North American comedy circuit
and has performed to sold-out theaters across the country, including
Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall.

Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia
