My Guilty Pleasures

As corny as it sounds, my guilty pleasures are actually two videos on You Tube from The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on CBS. No matter what kind of mood you're in, I guarantee either of these will send you into fits of giggles because Craig Ferguson just has a brilliantly silly mind.



Craig Ferguson might very well be a comedic genius...he's lip syncing with hand puppets to a Fatboy Slim song. But what really kills me is the look on his face when the song starts out. He actually looks like he's not sure if anyone's going to be watching. And he's got that damned wiseass grin on his face the whole time while he's taking himself quite seriously. If you get the chance, really watch Craig...he's not just lip syncing to this song. He looks like he KNOWS it.

"It's a Wonderful Night" has almost, for me anyway, has ceased being a Fatboy Slim song (and I really do like Fatboy Slim), because Craig owns it! And come on, how cute is the little gangsta dressed bunny?



According to Wikipedia, ""White Lines" is the second single from the Duran Duran covers album Thank You. It is a cover version of the 1983 song "White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)" by Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel." It's pretty obvious what it's about, if you listen to the lyrics. I'm just not sure why they are dressed for the 70's though. Maybe it's just more silliness. And let's be honest here...aren't 70's styled clothes sillier than 80's styled clothes?

I've actually been a fan of Craig Ferguson's for quite some time, from when he portrayed Mr. Wick on The Drew Carey Show. Who says all British humor is dry? I rank these performances of Craig's right up there with the silliness of Monty Python.

The openings of his show are just screamingly funny to me. I have the DVR set to record it every night. It's my newest addiction.

He is just terribly funny. Earlier this year, he had a special on Comedy Central called, A Wee Bit o' Revolution. A lot of it revolved around his becoming an American citizen. (He was born in Scotland.)
