The Spotlight on… Fergus Craig

“Never trust a man with two first names”, some say. Poppycock! What about Fergus Craig, who’s not only really nice, he’s funny too – the 2008 Hackney Empire New Act of the Year winner, in fact.


fergus_craig1Name: Fergus Craig

Where do you live?:Stoke Newington

How long have you been gigging for?: As a stand up, just under 6 months. But I started doing gigs as part of a double act (Colin and Fergus) 6 years ago

What do you do?: Not sure really. I just try and say things that I think are funny. Sometimes I move about a bit too. I throw in the odd facial expression if I’m getting paid well

Who makes you laugh?:Harry Hill, Mitch Hedberg, Daniel Kitson, Steve Martin, Cowards, Summer Heights High, Chris Morris and my mate Dave McNeil

At which London venues do you normally appear?: I run my own night called Toadfish Tuesday at Lowdown @ the Albany. Other than that, I go all over. I have a few 99 Club gigs booked in

What is your favourite London venue?: I really like Up The Creek in Greenwich. It’s a proper comedy club. Sunday nights are always good there and it still can have that same unpredictability that came from Malcolm Hardee
