Our parade of late-night talk show hosts continues Monday in St. Petersburg with Craig Ferguson. The Scottish comedian first came to American attention in 1996 on The Drew Carey Show (playing Carey's boss, Mr. Wick). Since 2005 he has hosted The Late Late Show on CBS, where he has won a Peabody award for his March 2009 interview with Bishop Desmond Tutu. He has had an eclectic career as the author of several books, and roles in movies and on the stage. But when he's not pushing the boundaries of the TV talk show format, Ferguson hits the road. He's doing his standup show at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Tickets $55-$85; (727) 791-7400. Ferguson's bay area visit follows Jimmy Fallon, who was at the sold-out Tampa Theatre in October; and in February, Jay Leno will be at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater for a sold-out show.
