Craig Ferguson: Hobo Fabulous – Review

Craig Ferguson: Hobo Fabulous

Performance at The Tabernacle, Atlanta, 4 Oct 2019

Thespia brought Craig Ferguson to my attention via his Late Late Show and I quickly realized that this guy was batshit insane.

That’s where you can learn about how the film had a substantial pie budget, a “court jester” and so forth.

You might not want to watch this during lunch, especially if you’re enjoying a curry.
