Holy crackers! Craig Ferguson, hilarious host of the Emmy-nominated Late Late Show, is coming to town. He might even provide you with a new set of abs via the finest form of indoor exercise: laughter. His personality is that of a chatty child crossed with the Energizer Bunny. His observational and self-effacing humor produces digressions within anecdotes within ad-libs. His tangents are just as amusing as his scripted jokes -— often more so. Not to mention he’s Scottish, which he works to his advantage, charming the crowd with oddball phrases and mocking his own accent — and others’ too. Today a reformed alcoholic, recently minted U.S. citizen, TV star, and author (American on Purpose), the former punk-rock drummer has come a long way from Glasgow. This Sunday at 7 p.m., see the late-night host at Hard Rock Live.
