As a young comic in Scotland, “Late, Late Show” host Craig Ferguson took the stage name “Bing Hitler”–a choice that tells you everything you need to know about his satirical, irreverent and ” eternally 12 years old” class clown schtick. Yes, he works dirty, but in a smirky/sweet adolescent way that manages to be boyish and charming even at 50. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s devastatingly handsome and rocks a kilt even better
than Sean Connery. Ferguson’s essential accessories for the look? A black leather biker jacket and his trademark “let’s get crazy” party face.
But there’s no scotch guzzling or other intoxicating diversions for Ferguson. A former drug addict and alcoholic, he proudly and publicly celebrates more than two decades of hard-won sobriety.
