I have always loved this guy. He has a great sense of humor and that “I don’t give a sh*t” attitude…. He has an ease about him that is very inviting. He plays up the creepy old man shtick with a nice knowing wink to the audience. I am a fan… A big fan.
Then last night he earned my total respect. He had taped his show the day before, like many shows do, and in his monologue he of course was talking about the big movie release of the week; The Dark Knight Rises. Because of the senseless tragedy that happened at the theater in Aurora, Mr. Ferguson took it upon himself to nix the original opening and monologue and replaced it with a heartfelt soliloquy. He put his heart on his sleeve and reached out to those who have been affected by this atrocity.
Craig Ferguson you have had a fan in me for some time but you now have a deeply devoted fan for life. You sir are a true class act and should be commended for your actions. Thank you.
