Admit it, you still think of Craig Ferguson as the boss from "The Drew Carey Show." You might or might not know that he is also an accomplished stand-up comedian and, these days, very well-known for his role as host of CBS' "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson." He's also funny, but in a very subtle way that hits your funny bone. The Scottish accent certainly helps to sell it. He had an aside, back in the day, about the pope's hat. Hilarious.
Why go: Life and times are crazy right now. You need to laugh.
Reconsider: Craig who?
7:30 p.m. Thursday at The Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St.; $34.50-$52.50; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
