Craig Ferguson, host of CBS' The Late Late Show

Craig Ferguson (born May 17, 1962) is a comedian and actor who has done work both in front of and behind the camera.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Ferguson became a highly regarded comic in the UK, appearing in the alternative comedy circuit under the clearly offensive stage-name Bing Hitler. After enjoying success at the Edinburgh Festival, Ferguson moved to Los Angeles, California in 1994.

He is best known in the U.S. for his role on The Drew Carey Show, where he played Nigel Wick, Drew Carey's boss. Of his over-the-top English accent on the series, Ferguson noted that plenty of English actors had used bad Scottish accents in the past, so it was time for a Scottish actor to use a bad English accent.

In December 2004, it was announced that Ferguson would be the successor to Craig Kilborn on CBS's The Late Late Show. Ferguson's first show aired on January 4, 2005, with reasonably successful results since then.
