Craig Ferguson Speaks From The Heart
Sherman Oaks, California
Craig Ferguson is a minor miracle. He's a Scot with a brough who hosts the American talker "The Late Late Show" on CBS. He's a 45-year-old fronting a program for collegiate stoners. Ferguson reconceptualized the opening monologue: the rat-a-tat of jokes and gags was dropped in favor of Craig telling a story about why today, like every day, is a great day for America.
One year ago today, Ferguson promised to hold his fire on Britney Spears and other celebrities with apparent substance abuse problems. A recovering alcoholic, Ferguson apologized that his comedic aim had been off and argued that comedy should be used against the powerful, the politicians, the Trumps and the blowhards of the world.
Watch the whole thing. You'll be glad you did.
