About This Site
This fan site, in operation since February of 2006, is dedicated to the Best Thing on TV: Craig Ferguson.

If anyone finds broken links or errors, please let me know and I will do my best to fix them. As always, this site is a work in progress. Thank you for visiting!

Don't forget the Lollipop Theater Tweet-a-Thon today!
Craig is on the advisory board of the Lollipop Theater Network, which is a "non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the magic of movies currently in theaters to children confined to hospitals nationwide due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses."
On Monday, April 5th, there will be a Tweet-A-Thon on Twitter to raise awareness of this worthwhile organization.
According to the YouTube video page for this:
"On Monday, April 5th, 2010, we invite you to join the Robot Skeleton Army in a Tweet-A-Thon for an amazing organization: Lollipop Theater Network.
"First things first, everyone please register at the KIND movement. Select Lollipop Theater in the drop-down list to move them up in the acts of KINDness. The organization with the most registered acts will win $25 000! http://bit.ly/b4RFEx
"We will be using the hashtag, #lollipoptheater, on Twitter to get it onto the trending topics list. Our goal is to encourage more support of a wonderful organization, Lollipop Theater Network, for which Craig sits on the advisory board.
"Your mission is simple: Starting at 12am (your local time), include #lollipoptheater in all of your tweets on that day, no matter their content. You can include Craig clips and quotes, so long as it in the spirit of this organization. Donate to Lollipop Theater Network if you can, but remember to include the #lollipoptheater hashtag OR Tweet-A-Thon in the description so we can keep track of how much money we make for this brilliant organization.
"To get you all inspired, Twitter user @Shayla_Morris is raising money for Lollipop Theater Network, and will be shaving her head once the donation goal is reached!
"For more information about Lollipop, visit their website at http://www.lollipoptheater.org, and follow them on Twitter http://twitter.com/LollipopTheater
I would personally like to thank them for the promotional video they provided for my use.
"This project has been coordinated by twitter user, LipSyncingScot. Please follow her on twitter for more infomation and updates: http://twitter.com/LipSyncingScot
"Also, please check out http://www.trendlollipoptheater.com for further updates. Thank you to Derik Olsson for maintaining that site.
"Now, please, send this to everyone you know. Post links, bombard them all! That's your mission Robot Skeleton Army. Go forth!"
I confess to not having a very clear idea of what a Tweet-a-Thon is or exactly how it works to advance a cause but I thought I would post the info anyway. Even if you don't know how to participate in a Tweet-a-Thon, you can still donate to this worthy organization.

Also available as an audio book.
"In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark—as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.
"To numb the pain of failure, Ferguson found comfort in drugs and alcohol, addictions that eventually led to an aborted suicide attempt. (He forgot to do it when someone offered him a glass of sherry.) But his story has a happy ending: in 1993, the washed-up Ferguson washed up in the United States. Finally sober, Ferguson landed a breakthrough part on the hit sitcom The Drew Carey Show, a success that eventually led to his role as the host of CBS's The Late Late Show.By far Ferguson's greatest triumph was his decision to become a U.S. citizen, a milestone he achieved in early 2008, just before his command performance for the president at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson talks a red, white, and blue streak about everything our Founding Fathers feared. "
