  • One of Scotland's most acclaimed comedians, Craig Ferguson first became known to American audiences as Nigel Wick, Drew Carey's evil boss on The Drew Carey Show. A fixture of the series from 1995, Ferguson won over film audiences four years later with his portrayal of Crawford Mackenzie, an indefatigable but naïve hairdresser intent on competing in the World Freestyle Hairstyling Competition in the mock-documentary The Big Tease.Originally hailing from Glasgow, Ferguson started out as a musician, but gradually segued into comedy via the stage and television. He earned great popularity as the star of a series of self-titled specials on the BBC, and also received positive notices as the lead of the West End revival of The Rocky Horror Pictures Show and Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, which was staged at the Edinburgh Festival. By the mid-'90s, Ferguson decided it was time to move on, to set his sights on grander schemes, and duly moved to L.A. Upon his arrival, he found himself being forced to masticate a particularly large slab of humble pie, as the charm and wit that had earned him so many fans back home did little but translate to open casting calls and endless auditions in Hollywood. Ferguson's luck began to change when he landed the role of Mr. Wick on The Drew Carey Show and he was able to use his initial hard-luck experiences in L.A. as the basis for The Big Tease, which, in addition to starring in, he wrote and executive produced with Sacha Gervasi. The film, which also starred Frances Fisher and contained a pivotal cameo by Carey, was relatively well-received by critics and enjoyed a fairly successful commercial release.Ferguson followed The Big Tease in 2000 with Saving Grace, which Ferguson also co-wrote and co-produced. He would go on to appear in movies like Trust Me, and lend his voice to animated films like How to Train Your Dragon and Winnie the Pooh, but Ferguson would become best known for his late night talk show, The Late Show with Craig Ferguson, beginning in 2005.

QUOTES FROM Craig Ferguson CHARACTERS

Gobber
May the Valkyries welcome you and lead you through Odin's great battle field. May they sing your name with love and fury, so that we might hear it rise from the depths of Valhalla. And know that you've taken your rightful place at the table of Kings. For a great man has fallen: A warrior. A chieftain. A father. A friend.
Gobber
Some may suggest this was poorly conceived.
Hiccup
Then it's a good thing that I never listen!
Gobber
That's why I never married, well, that and another reason.
Snotlout
Wait, aren't you gonna teach us first?
Gobber
I believe in learning on the job.
Gobber
That's why I never married.
Gobber
All of you are going to learn how to fight dragons. [Puts his hand on a lever to open a cage]
Gobber

Snotlout
Whoa, whoa, aren't you gonna teach us first?
Gobber
I believe in learning on the job. [Pulls the lever down to release the dragon from the cage]
Gobber

Stoick
I take him fishing and he goes hunting for trolls!
Gobber
Trolls exist! They take your socks but only the left ones.
Lord Dingwall
Show yourself! Or are you too afraid to ruffle your pretty hair?
Lord MacGuffin
At least we actually have hair!
Lord Macintosh
And all our teeth!
Gobber
If you ever want to get out there to fight dragons, you need to stop… this.
Hiccup
But you just pointed to all of me.
Gobber
I don't think this thing's got a blind spot!
Gobber
Oh, nice of you to join the party! I thought you'd been carried off!
Hiccup
Who, me? Nah, come on! I'm way too... muscular for their taste! They wouldn't know what to do with all... (flexing) this!
Hiccup
Who, me? Nah, come on! I'm way too... muscular for their taste! They wouldn't know what to do with all... [flexing] this!
Gobber
Well, they need toothpicks, don't they?
Hiccup
You-you, sir, are playing a dangerous game! Keeping this much raw... "Viking-ness" contained! There will be consequences!
Hiccup
You-you, sir, are playing a dangerous game! Keeping this much raw... 'Viking-ness' contained! There will be consequences!
Gobber
I'll take my chances.
Gobber
Oh, perfect. And while I'm busy, Hiccup can cover the store. Molten steel, razor-sharp blades, lots of time to himself - what could possibly go wrong?
Owl
We need to issue an-
Winnie the Pooh
Gesundheit.
Owl
What?
Winnie the Pooh
You sneezed.
Owl
No, the word is 'issue' not 'achoo'!
Winnie the Pooh
You must be catching a cold.
Eeyore
I'll probably catch it too.
Hiccup
He never listens.
Gobber
Oh yeah it runs in the family.
Hiccup
And when he does it's with this disappointed scowl like someone skimped out on the meat in his sandwich. <mocking Stoick> Excuse me, barmaid, I'm afraid you brought me the wrong offspring. I ordered an extra large boy with meaty arms, extra guts and glory on the side. This here, this is a talking fish bone.

Gobber
Now you're thinking about this all wrong. It's not so much what you look like, it's what's inside that he can't stand.
Hiccup
...Thank you for summing that up.
Hiccup
Thank you for summing that up.
Owl
Well, the thing to do is issue a reward-
Winnie the Pooh
Gesundheit.
Owl
I beg your pardon?
Winnie the Pooh
You sneezed.
Owl
No I didn't, the word is "issue" not "achoo!"
Owl
No I didn't, the word is 'issue' not 'hachew'
Winnie the Pooh

Hiccup
Who, me? Nah, come on! I'm way too muscular for their taste! They wouldn't know what to do with... all this! [gesturing to himself and flexing]
Gobber
Well..!!, They need toothpicks, don't they?
Gobber

Gobber
Trolls exist. They steal your socks...but only the left ones....what's with that?
