On The Road Again
Craig Ferguson‘s first live comedy tour stop for 2012 has been announced!  He is coming back to the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, OK (just 75 miles north if Dallas) on January 28th.  Tickets go on sale Friday, December 2nd at 10am central time.  Craig has made the WinStar a regular venue for the past few years and tickets routinely sell out.  Book early to avoid disappointment.  As always, you can check out details of Craig’s live shows on our Live Comedy Tour page.  Our thanks to the eagle-eyed @bgrhubarb for spotting the posting.

    That’s how Ferguson gets a mention in Vanity Fair?  Common predictable jokes available for 2012 campaign GOP runners? He might spend a half minute out of his 20 on such.  Doesn’t need the obvious.
