“For over a decade, Craig Ferguson has been an outstanding stand-up comedian,” said Jim Wise, Vice President of Marketing at FireKeepers Casino Hotel.  “Craig’s easy going style is contrasted by his razor-sharp mind and hilarious adult-oriented views of world events and people.”  

Born in Scotland, Ferguson got his start in the entertainment industry as a musician and actor. He soon discovered he had a knack for comedy and went on to star in his own BBC television show “The Ferguson Theory”. Ferguson moved to the U.S. in 1995 and went on to work with a variety of comedians and actors including Betty White and Marie Osmond. From 1996 to 2003 he played Drew Carey’s boss on “The Drew Carey Show”.

Ferguson has performed at theaters across the country including, Carnegie Hall, New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, and the White House. He has also starred in a number of comedy specials and feature films. Several of his most famous comedy specials include, “A Wee Bit O’Revolution” in 2009, “Does This Need to Be Said” in 2011 and “I’m Here to Help” in 2013. On September 10, 2015, Ferguson will be seen in his original stand-up comedy special debuting on EPIX entitled, “Craig Ferguson: Just Being Honest.” The special was filmed at New York City’s Town Hall and focuses on topics spanning from “the deeply meaningless to the profoundly meaningful.” He has also played in a number of films including, “Niagara Motel”, “How to Train your Dragon”, and Disney’s “Brave”.

He took his talents to late night comedy in 2005, when he took the helm of CBS’s “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”.  During his nine seasons as the host, the show had all-time viewer records and his work earned him an Emmy nomination in 2006. Ferguson is now the host of the new game show, “Celebrity Name Game”, on CBS.
