We have confirmed that Craig Ferguson‘s April west coast tour will include a stop at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center in Lancaster, CA (north of Los Angeles) on April 21st at 8pm. It will be a rare chance for fans in the greater Los Angeles area to see Craig perform his live stand up show so close to home. Tickets go on sale this Thursday at 3pm ET/Noon PT. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting to see ticket information pop up online for the Casino Del Sol show in Tucson, AZ on April 19th. The casino tells us that they hope to have something posted by early March. You can always find the most current details on our Live Comedy Tour page.
Stick It To ‘Em
After this week’s discussion about Craig-themed license plates and bumper stickers, the RSA’s @Colleen_Byrne reminds us that there are RSA stickers available in her Robot Skeleton Army Store, from which all proceeds to go charity. This month’s charity is one of Craig’s favorites, the USO.
Merida At Disney
Our friends at StitchKingdom.com are reporting that Disney is auditioning for actresses to portray the new Disney/Pixar character of Merida from the film Brave at Disney World in Florida. The ad specifies that they’re looking for someone playful and between 5’4″ and 5’6″ but there’s no word on whether a Scottish accent is required.
Fun With Fred
Craig tweeted to Scottish comedian Fred MacAulay on Monday:
If you’ve not had the pleasure of seeing Fred perform, here’s a sample. He was a guest on the popular British comedy panel show Mock the Week and was asked by host Dara Ó Briain to improvise on the topic of etiquette. He chose a story from a soccer match featuring the Partick Thistle Football Club, of which Craig is a fan, that sums up Scottish etiquette surrounding the use of the F-word:

Monday on the Late Late Show, Craig enjoys some time with actor/writer Eric Idle and actress Sarah Paulson. On Tuesday, watch for TV personalities Dr. Mehmet Oz and Carrie Keagan. CBS tweeted:
The Late Late Show confirmed guest list has been updated through March 9th, including Boston-based comedian Dan Boulger, whose set was recorded all the way back on October 10th of last year but has yet to see the light of day. Let’s hope Dan hasn’t given up comedy and moved on to selling used cars by now. You can see the most current listings on our Guests page.
