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