What is Craig Ferguson Doing Now?
Craig Ferguson is one of those people known for being a success in whatever form of art they decide to delve into. A man of parts, as he is often referred to by most, Craig specializes in music, comedy, acting, writing, and TV hosting. However, before we delve into his current activities, let’s start from the genesis.
Craig Ferguson was born on May 17, 1962, in Springburn, Glasgow, Scotland, to Robert and Janet Ferguson. Growing up, his parents weren’t financially buoyant and as such he was raised in Cumbernauld where he attended Muirfield Primary School before progressing to Cumbernauld High School.
His time as a student was anything but exciting as he was constantly picked on by other kids for being chubby. At the age of 16, Craig became an alcoholic and decided to quit school altogether. Upon dropping out of high school, he signed up for an apprenticeship to become a technician. Within a short period of time, he started working for Burroughs Corporation as a technician. He eventually worked as a construction worker and a bouncer before finally deciding to delve into entertainment.
Craig’s foray into entertainment began in 1980 when he became a member of a punk rock band called The Bastards From Hell and was given the position of lead drummer. The band whose lead vocalist was Peter Capaldi soon became a sensation in Glasgow. In 1982, Craig decided to try his shots at comedy following inspiration from his bandmate Peter Capaldi that he had what it takes. After making his first comedy appearance in Scotland, Chris became poised to create his own character called Bing Hitler which became a massive success to the point that he was recognized at the 1986 Edinburg Festival Fringe. Following his success at the Edinburg Festival, Craig made a couple of appearances on Red Dwarf and One Foot in the Grave Christmas Special.
After tasting success as a singer, comedian, and TV personality, Craig Ferguson ventured into acting in 1998, with him playing the role of Richard in the movie Royal Vampire. The following year, he scored himself yet another impressive role, this time as Crawford Mackenzie in the movie The Big Tease. Ever since then, he has starred in a long list of moves and TV shows most notably How to Train Your Dragon, Gift of the Night Fury and Kick-Ass.
Although there isn’t much regarding his current activities owing to the private lifestyle, it’s obvious that Craig Ferguson has taken a break from his busy life to spend time with his family which includes his wife Megan Wallace-Cunningham (whom he got married to in 2007), and two children named Milo Hamish Ferguson and Liam James. However, due to his personality and ability to create mass hysteria, Craig Ferguson is most likely gearing up to return to the screens with a bang.

While there is no information as regards his other body measurements we can be content with the fact that he has a very trimmed figure which is an evidence of good and healthy living.
