    • Craig Ferguson: This is my first week as an American citizen. It's amazing. Now I can vote in the general election- and for American Idol.

    • Craig Ferguson: (On longing to become an American citizen) I'm waiting for my date for the test. My son was born here. I pay taxes here. This is my life here. I'm an American in everything but paperwork.

    • Craig Ferguson: If you're frightened of leprechauns, the best thing to do is to get yourself a little leprechaun outfit and see how big they are. And then you'll go, 'Well I see. That's like bein' frightened of a hampster.'

    • Craig Ferguson: (On his idols) I have more than one. Johnny Carson, of course. David Letterman, again I would say of course. And Regis Philbin. He's good at talking when there's nothing worth talking about.

    • Craig Ferguson: Being the executive producer of a film is not that difficult. It just means that you have some power. There's not a huge amount of skill involved — I don't know how much I'm giving away here. I feel like that guy on Fox, giving away the magicians' tricks. It's not rocket science, being an executive producer of a film.

  • funny as ever

    Craig is the funniest late night person alive.
  • A bit self indulgent yet funny in his own weird world...

    I like watching Craig, he doesnt seem to do well with people on his show, he seems a bit self indulgent with his comedy, not really a people person IMHO... Reminds me of a talented version of Regis Philbin...LOL he has a great art of Gab...I think he is better than Cohen, and should soon overtake him in ratings... ... ... I used to watch Cohen, he got a bit stale and lack luster and a nightly repeat.. ... ... ... ... .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .moreless
