More Craig Ferguson Bios & Profiles
Biography #2Craig Ferguson is one of Scotland's most popular and acclaimed comedians. By 1994, Ferguson had created several BBC self-titled specials and series, starred for one year in the hit West End revival of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and toured nationally in Dario Fo's Accidental Death of an Anarchist. At that year's Edinburgh Festival, Ferguson (against over a thousand different performance offerings) concurrently sold out two different runs at the Fringe Festival's largest venue (playing Oscar in matinee performances of The Odd Couple and performing evening shows of his stand-up show, Love, Sex, Death and the Weather).
On the heels of that stellar success, the performer made the move to Hollywood. Since his January 1995 arrival, Ferguson has become a television fixture as Drew Carey's boss, Mr. Wick, on the hit series The Drew Carey Show. Two of his scripts have been produced -- The Big Tease and Saving Grace, in which he starred with double Oscar-nominee, Brenda Blethyn. Saving Grace is due for release in early 2000. Ferguson has also signed a two-picture writing/producing deal with Paramount Pictures, with the first film slated for production with Jagged Films and Mick Jagger set to star.
