Craig Ferguson by Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images
Late Late Show
is writing a tell-all memoir which will reveal difficult aspects of his past, as well as his road to fame from a small town in Scotland to the United States.
The upcoming book will detail, among other things, Ferguson's past addictions to drugs and alcohol and a failed suicide attempt during a period of depression. The newly minted American citizen will publish the book,
America on Purpose
, next year through HarperCollins.
Before his comedy career, the Scotsman apparently tried his hand as a punk rocker, club bouncer, construction worker and even a modern dancer.
Ferguson has clearly fully embraced his life as a comedian, however. Commenting on the book's potential, he said he's writing it "in the hope that it will inspire other alcoholic, punk-rock drummers from Scotland." Is this an opus you plan to peruse?
