Talk show hosts do seem to enjoy stopping by Atlantic City to do a bit of stand-up. Whoopi Goldberg recently appeared in town and Jay Leno is stopping by April 25.
So is Craig Ferguson, the witty star of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, who will headline at the Trump Taj Mahal’s Mark G. Etess Arena on Saturday, May 10 at 8pm. Tickets are nicely priced at $29, $39, and $49.
However, an even better price is free. Atlantic City Weekly has launched a contest to give away two free tickets to the show. To sign up, go here.
Ferguson started in the entertainment industry as a drummer for some of the worst punk bands in the UK. Too wimpy to be in punk rock, he started acting. He played Drew Carey’s boss, Nigel Wick, on The Drew Carey Show from 1996-2003. Ferguson has three widely acclaimed standup comedy specials, and written two New York Times bestsellers, one of which received a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album. He won his first Emmy nomination in 2006, as well as receiving the 2009 Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting for his interview with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
