Banff to Fete Craig Ferguson with Ustinov Comedy Award

"Late Late Show' host to participate in one-on-one chat at TV and digital fest

It’ll be a great day for Canada: Craig Ferguson is to receive the Banff Festival’s Peter Ustinov Comedy Award.

Ferguson, host of CBS’ “The Late Late Show,” will take part in a one-on-one sesh at the Banff World Media Festival on June 11 that will be open to all delegates.

Dedicated to TV and digital media, fest takes place June 9-12  at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Canada.

Last year’s honoree was Chuck Lorre. Other previous recipients include Ricky Gervais, Martin Short and Kelsey Grammer.

“I’m delighted to be receiving such a prestigious honor that will surely end any doubt and self-loathing that I have and compensate for a difficult childhood,” Ferguson said in a statement. “If it doesn’t do that at least I get to visit beautiful Banff.  Win-win.”
