Late Late Show Highlights

A very happy 50th birthday to Craig Ferguson today.

This week the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson is broadcasting the shows they filmed in Scotland a month or two ago. Similar to the Paris episodes last year I’m posting last night’s entire show so you can watch the whole thing. If you’re low on time and only want to check out the best segments you can read my comment before each clip and decide if it’s worth watching.

The cold open was quick, but good.

The monologue was fine. It was at and about growing up in Cumbernauld. There weren’t a lot of jokes, it was mostly Craig reminiscing. The second segment was Craig playing a song he made up about Geoff. It was ok. So, basically, you can take or leave this clip:

Michael Clarke Duncan was with Craig for most of tonight’s episode, which was great because they were so funny together. Their first adventure took place in the alley behind the house Craig lived in as a boy. It was really hilarious. Afterwards, Craig talked with the home’s current resident. It was also pretty good. So this one is definitely worth watching:

CF and MCD then walked down the halls of Craig’s old high school and dropped in on a Modern Studies class. It was very entertaining. I kinda wish it had gone on for the rest of the episode. I guess if it had then we wouldn’t have seen Craig chat with Walter Muir, the school’s Head Teacher, and that would have been a shame cause it was pretty interesting. Craig and Michael then did a quick Tweetmail bit. Overall, I recommend checking all that out:

This piece of Evening Crumpets with Rashida Jones, David Sedaris and Ariel Tweto at Glamis Castle was a lot better than the one from two episodes ago. Their conversation was a bit more interesting, and there was no talk of colostomy bags. The Imagineers followed up with another song. The closing segment was funny. Overall, it’s probably worth your time if you’ve got it:

Excellent show. With extra points for being in Scotland I give it:
