Excessive drinking has been known to bring an untimely end to beautiful lives and careers. Most people who drink to stupor have confessed that getting out of the habit is even as difficult as getting clean after involving in hard drugs. Nevertheless, the reverse is the case with actor, comedian and director Craig Ferguson who dropped out of high school because of excessive drinking but was able to get to the peak of his chosen career after he managed to curb his drinking habit with the help of a 12-step recovery program.

Let’s introduce you to the man who struggled to succeed against all odds.

His Bio

Craig was born to Robert and Janet Ferguson, on the 17th day of May 1962 in Stobhill Hospital in the Springburn area of Glasgow. He was born as a Scottish Presbyterian. He was raised in nearby Cumbernauld along with his three siblings, two sisters and a brother. The effect of the world war II made his family move from their Springburn home to a council accommodation in Cumbernauld when he was six months old.

Craig spent a few years drumming in punk bands in the early 1980s. He was able to meet Michael Boyd, the artistic director of the Tron Theatre through a bartending job and it was Boyd who convinced Craig to take a shot at acting. For Craig, the attraction that acting held was too strong to be ignored and thus, he was hooked on entertainment for life.

Although his career started in Britain with music, theatre and comedy, he moved into films and television shows when he relocated to the United States. There, he appeared as Nigel Wick on the ABC sitcom The Drew Carey Show which lasted for 8 years (1996–2004). Since then, Craig has played the lead in three films and directed one. He has made appearances in several others plus many voice-over roles for animations.
