Craig Ferguson dials up Kyle Meredith to discuss his new six-part docuseries, Hobo Fabulous, which just arrived on Comedy Dynamics. The former host of The Late Late Show takes us through the concept of his most recent tour — a full show with no politics — and the behind-the-scenes look we get that reveals his process and features interviews from his team and family.

Ferguson also talks about what it’s like to go from doing a new nightly monologue during his late night stint to having the same set for months on stage, PC culture as a comedian, and his upcoming movie projects. He also says that this is more than likely his last stand-up tour as he looks to close that chapter of his life for new experiences.

Kyle Meredith With… is an interview series in which WFPK’s Kyle Meredith speaks to a wide breadth of musicians. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, Meredith digs deep into the artist’s work to find out how the music is made and where their journey is going, from legendary artists like Robert Plant, Paul McCartney, U2 and Bryan Ferry, to the newer class of The National, St. Vincent, Arctic Monkeys, Haim, and Father John Misty.
