Late Night: Craig Ferguson launches weeklong trip to Scotland

May 15, 2012 | 10:15 am


This week, Craig Ferguson is taking "The Late, Late Show" to a place it's never been before: Scotland.

On Monday night the host, accompanied by a handful of celebrity pals including Mila Kunis, Rashida Jones, Michael Clarke Duncan and David Sedaris, kicked off a series of shows taped in his homeland. The episode was a walk down memory lane for Ferguson: It was taped in part at Glasgow's Tron Theatre, where he performed in his early stand-up days, and also featured a visit (posted above) to a pub where Ferguson once got into a nasty barroom brawl. (He lost.)

But the highlight -- or lowlight, depending on your tolerance for these kinds of things -- of Ferguson's first night in Scotland was a conversation about, of all things, amputees and colostomy bags over tea and crumpets at Glamis Castle, the setting of Shakespeare's tragedy "Macbeth." Seems fitting, doesn't it?
