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., MWT11586513, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Narrated by Craig Ferguson., New York :Harper,c2009., NjBwBTNjBwBTNjBwBT, PN1992.4.F47A3 2009, Scots, Scottish Americans, Television personalities, The host of "The Late, Late Show" traces his journey from working-class Glasgow to the comedic limelight of Hollywood, revealing his personal story of becoming an American citizen., Unabridged., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers ,2009., bl2009019061, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780061961458_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, xiv, 268 p. :ill. ;24 cm.
