Wow – this is going to be HILLARIOUS!
Today SiriusXM announced that the multi-talented Craig Ferguson will launch a daily program exclusively on SiriusXM. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, “The Craig Ferguson Show” will debut on Comedy Greats channel 94 starting Monday, February 27.
Known for his quick wit and frequently offbeat humour, Ferguson charmed millions of viewers during his decade-long run as the host of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on CBS. The Scottish-born comedian rose to late night prominence for his wonderfully bizarre freeform monologues and informative interviews with everyone from movie stars to the Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Ferguson will showcase his unique talents on his new two-hour SiriusXM show, which will feature his perspective on the news of the day and have celebrity interviews, sketches, and correspondent stories. SiriusXM subscribers will also be able to call into the show and talk directly with the comedian. “The Craig Ferguson Show” will air weekdays from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm ET.
“This is premium quality drive-time entertainment. It’s like Game of Thrones in your car without pictures. Also, given recent events on earth, I wanted to return to a daily show without the restriction of wearing pants or shaving [anywhere],” said Ferguson. “I look forward to working in an environment that has zero censorship and zero network interference. The melon-farmers at SiriusXM told me to say that.”
In addition to Comedy Greats channel 94, SiriusXM subscribers can hear “The Craig Ferguson Show” via SiriusXM On Demand, through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at www.siriusxm.ca/player.
