Good thing the Boulder Daily Camera posts daily events or I would have missed Craig Ferguson’s Hobo Fabulous Tour live at the Boulder Theater. He’s a hilarious Scottish comedian known for funny cultural jokes and crazy facial expressions. I love the guy. He hosted the Late Late show until 2014 and then moved on to an Emmy award-winning daytime show called Celebrity Name Game. Now he’s touring the US and Canada.
My husband, Danny, and I found our seats in the stratosphere above the nose-bleed section along with several others who bought last-minute tickets. I wondered why any tickets were left at all. I don’t think his tour is being advertised that well. Here’s my feeble attempt at getting the word out.
Ferguson seemed so comfortable with the audience and smoothly delivered a boatload (yes, boats play a part too) of hilarious life stories and observations. It shocked me when he said he had just begun his tour. Wow.
Having been to Scotland last year, his jokes about Scottish people made me want to return for another visit. His unpredictable humor continued in an unrelenting stream. Did I enjoy it? Let’s just say, I won’t have to do any ab work in the gym today.
I laughed so hard and was so entertained, I hoped the tour ended in L.A. so I could see it again. I would buy tickets in advance to avoid high altitude seating and enjoy his wild expressive eyes.
If you’re in need of a good belly laugh, here’s Craig Ferguson’s Hobo Fantastic schedule:
September 12 – Colorado Springs
September 13 – Saratoga, California
September 15 – Reno, Nevada
September 16 – Napa, California
September 18 – Portland, Oregon where he’ll fit right in with its weirdness.
October 27 – Onamia, Maine, wherever the heck that is. Use Waze. It’s the app I used most when we visited and still couldn’t find what we were looking for.
October 28 – Des Moines, IA. Got nothin’ on Des Moines but I did lose a tire there once. Nope. Never found it.
October 29 – Madison, Wisconsin. Grew up in Madtown!
October 30 – Milwaukee! I was born there.
November 1 – Evansville, Indiana. I got really excited for a micro-moment thinking it was Wisconsin. But that town has less than 2000 inhabitants, so no.
November 3 – Waukegan, Ill
November 24 – Detroit, MI
November 27 – Louisville, KY where they pronounce Louisville properly, unlike Louisville, Colorado where uneducated cowboys didn’t realize the “s” was silent. Duh.
November 28 – Columbus, OH
