Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 – The Craig Ferguson Show*****
Craig Ferguson broadcasts for two hours to his Sirius XM Satellite Radio audience of 32million listeners who are in America, Canada and Puerto Rico, all LIVE from the Rose Street Theatre in Edinburgh (Venue 76).
Prepare to head into the unknown and laugh until your belly aches. This is a brilliant show –it is a live radio show so anything could happen – and there will be different guests every night.
Last night’s guests included Fred MacAulay a man with his own Fringe show at “The Comedy Stand” and Shazia Mirza whose 2017 show is running at the Billiard Room at the Gilded Balloon.
No one was spared : Americans, Canadians, Jews, Muslims and of course those right wing conservatives from Cumbernauld who he tells us are ‘out to get him’, starting every report in the local newspaper with the phrase “The thrice-married Craig Ferguson….” (his third wife Megan takes part in the show too albeit briefly)
We were treated to several alternative histories of Edinburgh from Robert Louis Stephenson to Alexander Graham Bell and the important role played by Greyfriars Bobby in every single event in Scotland.
Craig Ferguson and his straight man “Malibu-Joe” performed to a packed audience.
His show runs on August 10-11 and Aug 14-18 – it starts at 22:45 and runs for a very short 2 hours and 15 minutes.
