Craig On The Other Side Of The Desk

Here’s a fun run of appearances by Craig Ferguson on Conan shows. First up, from 2000, featuring a weird story about how he ended up being cast on The Drew Carey Show.

Followed up, in 2003, also on Late Night, doing a variation on some of the same material, interestingly. If you want to know more about Saving Grace and its weird lineage, click here.

Then, he wasn’t on NBC at all throughout his tenure on The Late Late Show, which is rather petty.

And finally, making reference to a joke that later forms the backbone of an entire stand up special.
