Described by some as the Canadian Billy Connolly, Craig never fails to entertain. The wild man of Canadian comedy delivering in style and occasionally making up one third of The Dinks. His unique humour fuses together whimsical anecdotes with salty stories of sex, drugs and circumcision. However, be warned, his laid-back manner and genuine warmth belie the true outrageous nature of his material. Still, his stoner philosophy and risque subjects have won him devoted fans worldwide. He has supported Frankie Boyle and performed on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), and was responsible for easing the contractions of an expectant mother who laughed so hard at his performance on Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave) - which detailed an encounter with a badger...her waters broke. 'Bringing a tale to life like a young Billy Connolly' (Edinburgh Evening News) 'One of the most skilled storytellers and jokesmiths on the circuit... Craig is simply a very, very funny man' (Chortle).
