Craig was in Reading, Pennsylvania northwest of Philadelphia for a live stand up comedy performance on Tuesday night and will travel further north to Scranton, PA for a show on Wednesday evening. Craig’s opening act Randy Kagan had a great time on Tuesday night: Reading Rocked! Who knew?
On his way from Wilmington, Delaware on Monday night, Craig stopped in Philadelphia to eat a late dinner: At Pats in Philly for cheesesteaks. Ah touring. It’s the time I enjoy late night meat. #imawareoftheinnuendo He then had lunch on Tuesday nearby before heading to the theater: @ Marathon diner in Philly. They r playing Joy Division. If food is even half decent this is my new favorite. #iancurtisismybeiber He even took a moment to visit an important piece of American history: http://yfrog.com/74apcpj ring a ding ding Now that’s what we call a bellwether moment.
Geoff Petersen tweeted about Craig’s dinnertime tweet: @CraigyFerg stopped in Philly for some meat. Hope he brings me back something. Like some Lady Gaga apparel. Mm… Meatwear! Oh my… To which Geoff’s creator, Mythbuster Grant Imahara replied: @GeoffTheRobot Don’t even think about it! I’m not cleaning rotten meat out of your servos. Geoff added: @grantimahara My creator has spoken. No meatwear for Mr. Skelly. Curse these open-architecture servos!
Late Late Show assistant producer Andrea Wayland might not be on the tour with Craig but she’s having her own adventures, as she tweeted: I’m trying really really hard not to throw a flaming bag of poo through my sax playing neighbors window. SO.SICK.OF.SCALES! Just wait until that sax player can imitate Kenny G.

The RSA’s @HMSFox was one of the successful bidders in the Lollipop Theater Network auction to meet Craig backstage at Carnegie Hall on Saturday and she is generously offering to share a little of her time with Craig for your benefit! She is asking you, her fellow roboskellies, if you have any questions you’d like her to ask Craig when they meet. Nothing cheeky, please (he takes care of that on the show), just questions for which you’d like to hear his answers. Send your questions directly on the tweety to @HMSFox and she’ll pick the best ones. There’s no guarantee how much time she’ll have with Craig but she’ll do her best to ask as many questions as she can. Limit two questions per person, please. Thanks!
Don’t forget to nominate Craig for a People’s Choice award. You can use their ballot but you’ll have to write Craig in. Otherwise, you can tweet your nomination by tweeting: Craig Ferguson #talkshowhost #peopleschoice
