We went to see Craig Ferguson in Wichita tonight at the Orpheum Theatre. He was wonderful, as you might guess. I watch him every night and just adore him. There were four of us – Greg, Mia, me and Pam – and we were lucky enough to be in the front row, so had a great view.
The show started with Craig making an announcement while the stage was dark. He commented on Orpheus (you know he’s well-read if you’re a fan), and made a few remarks, and then introduced Ted Alexandro. You may have seen him on the show before. He did a short set and was really funny.
Then Craig did his set and had us all laughing pretty much constantly.
We had waited outside beforehand, hoping to get a photo with him for my blog, and also for Ace Jackalope’s blog. That was not to be.
But we had also made a banner and as he finished his set, we unrolled it so he could see it. He looked at it just as he was leaving the stage. I took this last night in my living room.
In a minute or so he came back out and said, “I had to come back to see what your sign said.”
He asked what a Jackalope was and then invited Mia, who was holding the jackalope, up on stage to take a photo. He visited with her a couple of minutes, hugged her and posed with Ace Jackalope.
Like me, Mia is a major fan, so I’m very happy for her. It’s sooooo cool she got a photo with him. So very cool!
All in all a great night of fun at The Orpheum. They have some amazing shows coming up, including BB King and Los Lobos. I wish I could just go to everything!
