Some fun news for fans of stand-up comedy.  A comedy and TV talk show legend is coming back to Evansville. Craig Ferguson is bringing his 2023 The Fancy Rascal Tour to the Victory Theatre later this year.

Ferguson, of course, is a Scottish-American comedian, actor, writer and TV host. He's likely best known for hosting The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS. That show ran from 2005 through 2014 and won him a Peabody Award. He snagged that award for his interview with African archbishop Desmond Tutu.

In addition to a Peabody Award, Ferguson won two Daytime Emmy Awards for his work on Celebrity Name Game!

Remember this? This show was a blast.

Celebrity Name Game ran from 2014 through 2017.

In addition to being in front of the camera, Ferguson has also voiced some popular animated characters behind the scenes as well. He was the voice of Gobber in the How to Train Your Dragon film franchise (I love those movies). He also voiced Owl in 2011's Winnie the Pooh and he was the voice of Lord Macintosh in the 2012 movie Brave.
