CRAIG FERGUSON: THE HOBO FABULOUS TOUR

What the world needs now more than ever is an ageing unhinged vagrant traveling
from place to place ranting nonsense into a microphone. – Craig Ferguson

Craig Ferguson has announced the HOBO FABULOUS TOUR, which will take the Grammy-nominated, Emmy and Peabody award-winning comedian to 45+ shows across the USA and Canada. Included in this tour is a stop in Champaign, Illinois, where Ferguson will appear at the historic Virginia Theatre, 203 West Park Avenue, on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, at 7:00 P.M. (CDT). Reserved seating tickets are $39.50-49.50 and will be available beginning Friday, July 20, at 10:00 A.M. at the Virginia Theatre Box Office, online at www.thevirginia.org, or charge by phone at 217-356-9063.

Ferguson’s show, which will be 100% new material, will never be recorded for any form of broadcast or streaming outlet given Mr. Ferguson’s new (ironically) Luddite mistrust of digital technology.

The veteran comedian’s comedy tour kicks off on September 7, 2018 in Denver, CO. SiriusXM is the official tour sponsor.

Ferguson is an actor, writer and comedian, who as the host of CBS’ ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson’ set all-time viewer records during his ten-year run as host, which earned him a Primetime Emmy nomination and the 2009 Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting for his interview with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Ferguson was also the host of the syndicated game show, ‘Celebrity Name Game,’ in which he was awarded the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Game Show Host two years in a row. Ferguson is also an acclaimed standup comedian who has earned two Grammy nominations for Best Comedy Album on behalf of his original standup recordings, ‘Craig Ferguson: Just Being Honest’ and ‘I’m Here to Help.’ He has performed to sold out theaters all over the country, including New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall. He also received a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word on behalf of his New York Times bestselling memoir American On Purpose. This summer, Ferguson is filming the movie ‘Love Me To Death’ in his native Scotland alongside Kathie Lee Gifford, who wrote the film. Ferguson recently concluded his wildly popular daily SiriusXM program ‘The Craig Ferguson Show.’
