In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark - as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

Funny but sometime slow

I love Craig and this is funny but not pure funny Ferguson. I wanted it to be either longer (more in depth) or shorter with more punch. Still a good listen.
