Fergus Craig

Fergus Craig burst onto the scene in 2003 as part of the acclaimed double act Colin and Fergus winning the Writer’s Guild Award in 2004.

Based in London, Fergus is now doing paid 20’s for clubs like Up The Creek and the Frog Bucket and getting regular bookings from Avalon and Christian Knowles amongst others.

QUOTES
“His set was an inventive breath of fresh air, while never forgetting to be funny… with killer lines, great delivery and a delightful dollop of surprises Craig was class” – THE STAGE
“…impressively witty and inventive writing. The off-kilter phrasing of his gags, the playfulness with which he attempts accents and the general air of self-depreciation all make for a laugh out loud set.” – STEVE BENNETT, CHORTLE
“…has a refreshingly different take.” – JULIAN HALL, THE INDEPENDENT
“He is a complete natural on stage with a brilliant grasp on observation” – CHORTLE
“…his mixing of accents and languages have the room in creases” – METRO
“… infectious, assured and gleeful.” – THE LIST
