TV’s Craig Ferguson (as Ferguson refers to himself) and Josh Robert Thompson, who voices Geoff Peterson—Ferguson’s skeleton robot sidekick (yes, you read that right) on CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson played two sold-out shows Friday night at Washington, DC’s Warner Theatre.
Thompson who opened the show as himself with hilarious impressions—Morgan Freeman reading 50 Shades of Grey, Robert De Niro at his own birthday party, and Wilfred Brimley doing something we can’t mention here—left the audience perfectly warmed up and wanting more.
Ferguson started by commenting on the stage set as ‘lovely twinkling stripper decor,’ thanked General David Petraeus for ‘months of comedy gold,’ and continued to deliver the perfect mix of wit, self deprecation, raunch, and ‘personal’ stories of family life. Sharply funny, at times playfully surly and always endearing, Craig Ferguson is just what politic-weary Washingtonians needed to take our minds off the dreaded fiscal cliff. Both performances were taped for broadcast so stay tuned for listings.
