Announcements

With his daily SiriusXM radio show in full swing, Craig has scaled back on touring across the U.S. and Canada, but still plans to do some stand up comedy from time to time. And he does do the radio show live on stage periodically. Keep an eye on our Live Comedy Tour page for Craig’s upcoming live stand up comedy appearances and radio shows.

It takes a lot of work to keep the tour listings current, monitor the web for Craig-related news stories and interviews, and to find all of the little tidbits of information we publish, so we welcome your help to find news items and make our posts the best they can be.  Several RSA members regularly post links to new information on their Twitter streams and we are also interested in your thoughts about Craig, his projects and more.

Our guidelines are pretty simple:  Want to write a post for us?  Great!  Have memories of a seeing Craig live, getting an autograph or meeting him?  Fantastic!  We can post your story here or link to your fan page, blog post, animated gif, wallpaper or nearly any other Craig-related thing you’d like to share.  Please note, we cannot post or link to video taken at Craig’s live performances, or any still photos or video taken inside television studios for legal reasons.  Otherwise, the door is open… please share your stuff with us!  Just tweet us your links or send more detailed information using our Contact Us form.

Audio/Video/Photograph Guidelines for Studio and Live Performances

Click on the plus to read the Guidelines
While these guidelines are not official and have not been approved by Craig or his management, they do cover the essentials as we understand them and we strongly recommend that they be followed by fans:

No Audio/Video Recording at Live Shows
Recording audio and/or video of Craig’s live stand up comedy performances or radio shows is a violation of federal copyright law. Even if the person recording or distributing such audio or video material does not profit directly from making the material available to the public (online, for example) it can cut directly into revenue from ticket sales, future broadcasts, DVD sales and more. In other words, if you record and/or distribute Craig’s live shows, you are taking money out of his pocket. If found in violation of copyright law, the person who recorded and/or distributed the material could face triple the actual damages caused, attorney’s fees and court costs, as well as criminal penalties up to a quarter million dollars in fines and five years in prison. We cannot be more clear about this: Do not record Craig’s live shows!

No Audio/Video Recording or Still Photographs at Television Shows
Audio/video recording and still photography are prohibited during tapings of any of the television shows on which Craig appears. The producers strictly enforce this policy because it violates copyright law and could impact their ability to profit from the broadcast of the show. If you are found violating this policy, you could face ejection from the studio, confiscation of your recording device(s) and legal action.

What about still photographs at live shows? Maybe.
Sometimes sometimes allowed during live shows (depending on the venue) are still photographs. Some venues where Craig has performed don’t allow photography for any show. For example, pictures were not allowed at the Comedy Works in Denver, there were conflicting opinions from security people in Windsor and we are told that the Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa did not allow pictures. However, Craig has never seemed to mind as along as no flashes are used, and some venues such as Nashville and Carnegie Hall have allowed pictures. The bottom line: If we are ever told differently by Craig or his team, we will let you know as soon as possible… but for now, if the venue allows it, it’s our understanding that still photos taken without flashes during live shows are all right and we are happy to post them here if you would like to share them.

If you have any questions, please let us know using our Contact Us form or via Twitter @RSA_News.
