It’s been quite some time since television’s Craig Ferguson has returned to America. Despite continuing his promise to never set sail in the waters of late night television again, the host has announced a new set of US dates for his upcoming stand-up comedy tour.
Since leaving his ventures in America behind, the comedian now resides in rural Scotland with his family, away from a manic Hollywood life.
After leaving his CBS job back in 2015, the host was soon a fan favourite on Sirius XM before making a permanent decision to focus solely on stand up comedy and authoring. Ferguson released Hobo Fabulous, which toured across the country in 2019, later becoming a 6-part documentary special.
The former Late Late Show host will soon embark on the Fancy Rascal tour across the United States from September, visiting practically every city in America, we’re not joking. All available tickets can be found on his website or via Ticketmaster.
New shows have recently been announced in Denver, Cleveland and Tampa.
If Ferguson’s upcoming stand up tour doesn’t excite you enough, it seems the former CBS host is keen to begin even more new projects. On Twitter this month, the comedian asked his followers: ‘Podcast?’ with a poll underneath, hinting a return to his Sirius style format back in 2017.

Ahead of his US comedy run, Ferguson made sure to congratulate his late night successor, James Corden after the current Late Late Show host announced his departure.
On Twitter, the Scotsman wrote: “Congratulations to @JKCorden
on a spectacular run. Outstanding job! Retirement is awesome. See you at the bingo. Well done my friend. Xx”
