Textbook example of a tall, 6ft1 1/2 guy at his prime.
Lunchbox said on 4/Mar/23
Hilariously funny! If you missed him on TV the first go around, check him
out on the JayLenoFly on YT.Solid 6-1. He is definitely one that looks taller by being "lanky" and shoes he had on that night. Judged this, much like you, by the celebs I've personally encountered, and the lovely and talented Craig Ferguson had on the program...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Feb/22
Solid 6ft1½ peak with a chance of 6ft1¾, never the full 6ft2 or 6ft1 flat
recapa said on 8/Oct/21
187-187.5 peak, 185-185.5 today.
David Tang said on 3/Jul/21
tall guy, better comedian than most.

I didn't appreciate his show when he was on.

Now I would. Far superior to the Kimmel's and Colbert's of the world
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/21
I think 6ft1 current is still times can look he's struggling with it
Looked closer to 6ft2 in the 90's, so a chance of 6ft1¾ peak
BT said on 4/Jan/21
I think he's probably just slouching heavily, but it was strange watching that video. He looked barely over 6ft through most of it! I really doubt he's that low though.

In his prime he was certainly no less than 6'1.5, and I could see the argument for 6'1.75-6'2, as he could look taller than Gerard Butler in 2010 Click Here, Click Here. From 2014 and definitely in 2019 he could look somewhat shorter Click Here, Click Here. Whether there's a wee footwear swing in those sets of photos I'm not sure, but Ferguson has definitely lost a bit of height regardless.

Maybe he could have lost near the full inch over the last few years Rob? A 6'1.75 range peak and perhaps a touch below 6'1 today?
Editor Rob
weaker 6ft 1 today is possible, but I think 6ft 1.5 peak is still fair based on 80's and 90's
OriginalAnon said on 31/Dec/20
Just seen a clip of him with Scott Waites the darts player, I've seen Waites in person and he can't be any taller than 6', if that. He looks a good bit taller than Ferguson, though. What's the deal with that? I thought there was a good chance he was 184cm or 185cm on a good day but now I am confused. Rob, what do you think?

Editor Rob
Ferguson was struggling to look near 6ft 1, would have thought at times just 6ft there!
QuenMans said on 3/Dec/20
I dont get it. I've met James Corden, who is definitely about 5ft 8. If Craig is a strong 6ft 1 or more - how come he only looked about 4 inches taller than James, with like 1 inch more shoes?

Even now he’s a strong 6’1” at 186 cm minimum peak could be about 187 cm closer to 6’2”
George89 said on 25/Jul/20
Saw a clip from 2014 with David Tennant on his show. 100% he's taller than David. 6ft1.25 or 6ft1.5 is what he was. Lost a fraction by now though.
OriginalAnon said on 26/Jun/20
6'1'' max and I can't believe this guy has left his Scottish roots behind him by pronouncing his name as "Creg". That's embarrassing, I'm afraid!
Nik said on 1/Feb/20
It would be great if Alex Salmond was given a page!

Hi, Rob, I see a discrepancy between Craig and Russell Brand, they're listed around the same height but here there seems to be at least an inch of difference, if not more, and they're listed as being around the same height. Both seem to be wearing the dress shoes and I do understand Russell's hairstyle might affect how we judge this. Thoughts? Click Here and
Editor Rob
I'd expect Brand to look a bit taller, he also might have fraction more heel than craig there.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/May/19
He can be 6'1 if Zachary Levi is atually 6'3 1/2 but i'm thinking Craig is more like 6'0 7/8 and Levi 6'3 3/8. Peak Craig is more like 6'1 3/8.
Rick Leprechaun said on 27/Jan/19 my first time here but how can there be so many perceptions so different about the height of the same person? I think some people do not have the slightest sense of relative appreciation of magnitudes
6'0 1/2....6'1...6'2...6'3....6'4....6'4.75 ??!!..WTF!! it seems like this guys are evaluating the size of a flying saucer in the sky and not a celeb with tons of information and photos for comparison on the web !!!

this guy at peak gives the same wibe as letterman. strong 187 guy peak. i wonder if he really is 6 ffot 1 flat today. remember he was same height as morgan fremman about 2 years ago. maybe he had lifts on? but i dont think so at his height
JD said on 2/Mar/18
I've watched an absurd amount of Craig's interviews and seen him with so many people. I'm quite comfortable saying it's impossible he's as low as a flat 6'0 or as tall as 6'3. But also that the only time I've heard him claim 6'3, I think he did it for comic effect, because of how the interview began, playing off of Gwendoline Christie who was in serious heels, lording it over him, in addition to being a giant of a female when not in heels. I think he may have peaked as high as just over 6'2 in the Drew Carey years and have heard him say he was 6'2 a few times before I think. He always looks tall to me. When he says 6'2, he may be rounding up slightly these days at 55. 6'1.5 doesn't seems like a fair enough listing. Seeing him next to Morgan Freeman, Hugh Laurie, Jeff Goldblum, multiple times, I have to assume 6'1 or 6'2 is accurate enough.
Mike said on 21/Sep/17
I'm guessing 6'1" now without shoes, as much as 6'2" at his peak. Shoes can make any guy who's at least a whisper over 6' barefoot into a 6'3" guy.
Tonyx said on 15/Sep/17
Paul murphy, less so in current times. Just not possible with the internet, social media, youtube, loss of the right for privacy. People that become famous these days still over claim but no where near 3in.
I think Craig creeps down to 6ft0.75in in the evening and wasn't much taller when he was younger.
His 3rd wife is really hot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/17
6ft3 in shoes is possible at least peak. He could have been near 6ft2 20 years ago...
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 10/Jul/17
6'1" peak perhaps 6'1.25", and 6'0.5" today
Paul murphy said on 4/Jun/17
Everyone in Hollywood ads up to 3" to their true height.its an unwritten rule.peaple look at celebrities as larger than life peaple so we assume their tall.the fact is most of them are surprisingly short.therefore a guy like Ferguson who is truly 6' or more comes off looking like 6'3.
RichardSpain said on 30/May/17
I watch his talk shows on youtube. He is very friendly. He is a tall man. He looks 186 cm and he is a little shorter than Letterman. But they could be similar. Young I think he was around 188 cm ( 6'2 feet) sure.

@Rob: I didn't know that he is Scottish I thought he is an American Showman

Do you know where produce his programs?

thanks Rob and regards!
Editor Rob
I suppose he became more well-known in America by hosting that Late Show...but he's pretty much a typical Scottish guy who has a personality, like a Billy Connolly.

He's not really a big name here though...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/17
Taller than Jonathan Ross in the early 90's, both in peak form. I wouldn't completely rule out 188cm for this guy especially if Ross was 186cm range
jervis said on 16/May/17
There is a late late show from 2009 of him and Tim Robbins on youtube,Robbins looks more than 3 inches taller,more like 4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/17
Still around 185-186cm zone today. Looked a solid 187cm peak
123 said on 13/Jan/17
Tyler Perry was a good 8cm taller when he came on in 2010, if Tyler Perry was under six-four as most think that would make Craig Ferguson six-foot and change in 2010 bloody unlikely isn't it

2010 Tyler Perry 6'4 1/2" and Craig Ferguson 6'1 1/4"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/16
Rob, how arguable is 6ft2 peak?

I think Rampage, he fell a little short of it, but maybe not really by that much...

I know walton listed 6'4 everywhere but take into account he really look 2" taller than dax shepard listed 6'2.75 by rob and i wouldn't see walton under 6'4.75 , at worst by mistake dax shepard is 6'2.5 and david walton is not under 6'4.5 and the facts theory makes craig ferguson a good 6'1 not under it. 6'1 is tall and david walton is huge next to those 6'0-6'3 guys
MadDrummer said on 1/Nov/16
Craig was easily 6'2" in his prime. His posture these days is rather poor, and he wears lifts a lot, but when he does stand straight, he can probably still get 0.5" under his peak height. As for normal slouched height, I'd say he's between 6'1" and 6'1.25".
Arch Stanton said on 1/Nov/16
Looks a very similar height to Pierce Brosnan in the above photo.
BorkLaser said on 6/Oct/16
Didn't look that tall next to 6'4" David Walton on Celebrity Name Game. Even in his big lifts he was visibly shorter by over an inch.
park said on 2/Oct/16
Craig always mentions height. Very height aware guy, but hilarious and clever nonetheless
shrug said on 18/Sep/16
From seeing him with guests on his show I would be surprised if he's anything over 6'1" even. Strange that he exaggerates his height when he's already above average height

heelshealheight said on 1/May/16
Rob, this photo is indicative of how short Alex Salmond really is. He's claimed to be 5ft8 / 5ft9 which is ridiculous (I estimate he's not more than 5ft4). You've stated your own height at 5ft8 and whenever you stand next to 6ft1 / 6ft2 celebs, the height difference isn't significant (as you stand next to circa 6ft1 Avery Brooks, for example). As for Craig Ferguson, he's shorter than 6ft1; he's a bit taller than 5ft11 but that's all. Anyway, I've said it before and I'll say it again: Unless I see you standing next to these celebs, I'll never buy any of their height claims.;-)
Editor Rob
I think salmond pretty much is 5ft 8ish
Dave said on 23/Jan/16
Craig is eye to eye with Matthew McConaughey who is 5'11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/15
He looked about 1in taller than Jonathan Ross when he made a rare appearance on the show (circa 1991).
188cm peak is possible especially if Ross was taller than 6ft1...

I think Jeff looked taller there.
BorkLaser said on 30/Jun/15
I think his current 6'1" listing is accurate. He wears shoes with pretty thick soles that give about 2 inches. On his show with Gwendoline Christie (who is 6'3") she called him out on his 6'3" claim and said he wears thick shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/15

He looked 6ft1-6ft2 on The Drew Carey Show.
Andrea said on 8/Mar/15
His claims are a big joke! Just look at him with Chris Barrie, he struggles to look even 6'1 with him and he still was "at his peak", always if it ever existed a peak for him!
Editor Rob
I think he did look over 6ft 1 in that red dwarf, near 187 is quite possible.
Danimal said on 5/Mar/15
Craig, he's taller than a flat 6'1". He's close to 6'2" imo. Is it a Scottish thing Rob? Do you not like him because he left Scotland? A lot of people from your country call him a traitor.
Editor Rob
I think he did clear 6ft 1 easily enough but today I'm not convinced he looks much more than 6ft 1.

he looks a little shorter than Gillan there although she probably has a footwear advantage of a good 3 inches, those heels look to give in the true 4 inch range.

Andrea said on 30/Sep/14
To be fair, he can look a fraction over 6'1 if Jeff Goldblum is 6'4... But then again Jeff could be a bit under 6'4 nowadays. When he was younger he looked at least 6'4, though. Still Craig is only 52, half an inch is quite a big loss for him, i mean, he is not a wrestler or something! Always a chance he "was" a strong 185 and now a bit under it, though. And yeah, he has no idea of how tall a real 6'3 is! Put him next to a Tom Welling, who claims "almost 6'3" and i'd like to see if he'd still claim "6'3" with a straight face!
Danimal said on 29/Sep/14
Andrea says on 28/Sep/14
Yeah, it's ridicolous how he insists being 6'3, that's crazy! He's never been near that mark, not even with shoes on! 6'1 tops...

Nah, he was close enough to 6'2" imo. Many legit tall men are barely taller than him. 6'3" is out of the question.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Sep/14
I mean a guy like him who frequently interviews tall male celebs should realize that when he sees guys like Goldblum and Robbins for instance than he's not even close to 6'3". I suppose he thinks they're 6 ft 6.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Sep/14
@Andrea, yeah see the Goldblum interview!
Andrea said on 28/Sep/14
Yeah, it's ridicolous how he insists being 6'3, that's crazy! He's never been near that mark, not even with shoes on! 6'1 tops...
Arch Stanton said on 28/Sep/14
Remember Andrea that Gwendoline is a very solid 6'3" and is in 5 inch heels there by her own profession. Now they wouldn't give her a full 5 inches perhaps but I'd assume she's near 6 ft 7 in them. Ferguson in my opinion manages to look a weak 6'2" there but he also has generous footwear so around 6'1" seems about right. I don't think she seriously thinks he's 5'10, sometimes a lot of the gags on his shows seem rehearsed. It's just a clear "You're NOT 6 ft 3" thing.
Grace said on 27/Sep/14
Think 6'. The shoes look like they have at least a 2" heel if not higher. Notice when Gwendoline "outed" him as not being 6'3" he smiled and didn't deny it. No Way is he as tall as he claims.
Andrea said on 13/Sep/14
How much do his shoes give? They look well over 1 inch, so the difference (in shoes) could be less than 2.5! He looks 6' tops next to her and the fact he thinks she's 6'5 tells you lot! If he met a Tom Welling he probably would think he's 6'5 too... Even 6'1.5 "peak" is a stretch, he probably has never been over 6'1!
Editor Rob
they don't really appear that large, I showed a photo of a 1.1-1.2 and a 1.5 heel today on sneakers page.
Andrea said on 13/Sep/14
How much shorter does he look with Gwendoline? It looks at least 5 inches to me and she's gotta be no more than 2 inches advatange over him, making him barely 6'! And what about his shoes? They really look quite thick... And he does claim 6'3? How the hell he got that mark? In heels maybe...
Editor Rob
with a long foot she has more chance of a bigger gain than your average women, I could believe there's a 2.5 inch advantage in footwear. I'd say he is roughly near her eyelevel. I wouldn't argue he looked over 6ft 1 there.
Andrea said on 12/Sep/14
With the guy Rob met, Chris Barry, he doesn't look over 6'1 to me... His claim of 6'3 is funny. Rob, you really think he might be over 6'1?
Editor Rob
25 years ago maybe, now he could be nearer 6ft 1 flat.

Very close in heigth to fighter Rampage Jackson, who was on the show just now and is measured at 6-1. Have watched Craig his entire run and he seems right around six one. Couple inches taller than Leno, couple shorter than Conan.
Nigel said on 26/Feb/14
Looking at him right now on tv standing next to Ashton Kutcher, I'd say that Ferguson has to be an absolute bare minimum of 6'1", and a good chance of being over 6'1.5". The two look very similar in height; granted, Kutcher stoops a little, and Fergusson appeared to be wearing slightly higher heels
MD said on 19/Jan/14
I used to think he was a solid 6'2", and then I saw 6'0.5" Chris Pine on this show, Friday night, and they were closer in height than I expect. I wouldn't be surprised if he's now a flat 6'1". He's definitely not shorter than that, though.
Ben said on 16/Jan/14
Keith Olbermann looked about 2 inches taller than him. Keith is 192cm or about 6'3.5" so 187cm or 6'1.5" is about right for Craig Ferguson. This listing is correct in my opinion.
cole said on 13/Jan/14
Joel McHale makes him look closer to 185 cm.

Shea says on 25/Jun/13
Last night he had dylan moran on. I've met dylan who is just under 6ft. Craig appeared to be less than an inch taller.

I think Dylan Moran is 5'11, at least that is what he is most commonly listed, and Craig looked roughly 5-6 cm taller. If you met him and thought he looked a good 5'11.5 or thereabouts, he can be 5'11-5'11.5 range, as you can't say for sure whether he's spot on 5'11 or spot on 5'11.5 by just standing next to someone. You can get a certain range, whiting 2 cm or so, but unless you took a picture with him, you can't be entirely sure.

For example when I met Kristofer Hivju twice in the last year (Norwegian actor who's on Game Of Thrones), we didn't see eye to eye. I had to look up a bit, and I noticed the top of his head was a bit higher than mine, so I know he was a good couple cms taller than myself (I'm 5'11). It could have been around half an inch, or the full inch and some fractions from what I could tell. I didn't get a picutre, so I can't be sure, that's why I can only assume he's 182-184 cm range, and for sure no shorter than 182.

Craig can look anywhere between 185 and 187 cm, he's most likely 186 cm.
cole said on 26/Jun/13

6'1.5" I've always thought is spot on based on most interviews I've seen. But With Robbie Coltrane, he looks at least 6;2" if Coltrane is a full '6.

He is hard to judge. When he was next to the late michael clarke duncan who is listed as 6 foot 5. I could see about 3 inch difference. Craig is a solid 186cm and michael clark duncan is a solid 193cm.

6'2 LOL. he was 4" shorter than recent david hasselhoff who dipping into 6'3.5 ferguson is 6'0 at best or 182cm tops.

Ferguson is 6'1"-6'1.5" based on comparisons I've seen with people like Goldblum. Hoff can often look 6'5", he looked 3-4 inches taller than Gordon Ramsey too.

Just watched the Youtube segment where Craig welcomes Jim Parsons on the show. Both are standing face to face, and they both look the same height. Parsons claims 6'2", so I'd say Craig is roughly (give or take a half-inch) the same. If Parsons is not lying, the absolute lowest Craig could be is Rob's stated height of six one and 1/2. Supposing footwear on the Youtube segment was fairly similar, that is!

Out of all the late night hosts his height has always seemed the most consist. Always looks 6'1 to me.
Silent d said on 30/Jan/12
I was kidding about the lifts for hasselholf. 186cm.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 26/Jan/12
182 cm is far more laughable than 188 cm for Ferguson. I, like Silent d, estimate 186 cm for him.
Silent d said on 24/Jan/12
186cm. How do you know hasslehoff doesnn't wear lifts steven?
steven said on 19/Jan/12

Silent d said on 15/Jan/12
186cm because he looks close to hugh laurie's height. Hugh laurie is about 3cm taller.
jake, 1.82 m/ 1.83 m said on 11/Jan/12
I'm surprised to be honest, for a long time I thought he was 6" 2 or at least very close to it. Having watched the show for a while now though, it's apparent he is closer to 6" 1 (1.85 m). He and Matthew Gray Gubler looked very similar in height.
Silent d said on 7/Jan/12
Next to 5 foot 10 daniela ruah, he looks a weak 6 foot 1. I'll stick with 186cm.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 2/Jan/12
He's exactly the same height as Alan Alda. 185- 186 cm for him as he also looked much shorter than 1.93 m Jason Segel.
silent d said on 26/Dec/11
No way he is 180cm. He was at least 7cm taller than drew carrey. 186cm. He was taller than dj qualls.

The video with Duchovny confirms my estimate of 5'11":

He is clearly about an inch shorter.
JJ said on 6/Dec/11
I went to a taping of his show and he was definitely taller than I expected. I'd say 6'2" firm.
Shaun said on 2/Dec/11
Good call, not even a solid 6'2".
krsuty said on 30/Nov/11
looks about 6foot half inch, not any taller. I watch his show alot and he looks shorter than many 6'1-6'2 actors like david boreanez for example. When david beckham went on his show they looked almost the same height given beckhams only 5'11.5.
Silent d said on 24/Oct/11
I heard craig said he was 6 foot 2 on his show and i didn't believe it. David letterman is taller than him when he went on his show. I would say 186cm. Sometimes he looks really tall but other times he is shorter.
Vinoves said on 16/Oct/11
He is 6'0 for sure. john corbett is 6'5 and craig is only reached corbett's neck.

Craig is about 6'1" . Dax shephard is 6'2" and craig ferguson seems a bit shorter than Dax.

^ I just posted another comment on this page but found this interview where, at 4:10, Ferguson says "I'm six foot two"... Still think he's barely 6'1" though.
Editor Rob
good I'll add the other quote too.
Jack said on 20/Sep/11
Uhhh... Maybe he meant his height in shoes? Don't see how he got 6'3" otherwise.

6 foot 3...never knew he said that one!
Shaun said on 13/Aug/11
Duchovny at 6' is one of the rare downgrades for an actor. He looks like he'd measure about 6'1" in his barefeet. Ferguson I have to admit rarely looks over 6'1" next to guests we know the legit height off.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Aug/11
Actually looking more closely at him, 186cm might be more likely. At least 6ft1 anyway
Voiceless dental fricative said on 16/Jun/11
Not 6'1.5 with Duchovny

Started watching just recently and love the show. So spontaneous!! Love WAVY CROC. Let's see MORE of him!!

He looks a weak 6"2...and the most dreadful talk show host I've ever come across...far worse than Jonathan Ross
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Apr/11
He looks 6"1.75 or just a shade below 6"2

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Dec/10
Is 6"2 possible Rob?

Editor Rob
I think 187cm is a fair estimate for him.

no way this guy is 6'2 and the vid with fillion proves it. he needs a downgrade to 5'11". watch a clip of him and Matthew McConaughey and he looks similar if not slightly shorter.

When Dev Patel was on his show he was 1 inch taller than Ferguson so Patel must be ike 6'2 then.

Austrian says on 14/Jan/09
i think 6'2 is pretty accurate for him

when Hugh Laurie was on his show, they were same height

Heh, I came on here for that same reason. I noticed Craig is normally billed at 6'1", yet when Hugh Laurie (who is considered a bit taller) was on Craig's show they stood at the same height.

Hugh didn't appear to be taller at all, so there's no way there's even a 0.5" difference, unless Craig was wearing a much higher heel, which seem doubtful.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 21/Feb/09
Maybe 6ft1.75? Just a suggestion. I haven't seen much of him recently to judge.
Sami said on 19/Feb/09
Now that you mention it, he does have bad posture, but who am I to talk? Hehe.
I'm only 5' & my posture must make me look 4'10-11"

I had guessed 6'0" before, but probably because of his posture, 6'1.5" sounds right.

And since when do we call him Fergie? ;-)
sunnyfan said on 19/Feb/09
I`ve noticed Craig has a bad posture, so if he straighten up a bit i think he would be 6`2-6`2.25.

Craig is about 6'2 cause when Magician Lance Burton came on the show, Lance is 6'2 and the two standing next to each other,they were equal height.
Moke said on 10/Sep/08
He is easely 6 ft 1.5: if you watch "Saving Grace" you will see it.
clark said on 5/Jul/08
I have seen too many people on his show that are listed at 6'2" and he (Craig) always appears shorter. What really caught my eye, is when Alec Baldwin (not a natural six footer)appeared about an inch or 2 shorter than Craig. Craig is probably closer to 6'1".
Random Person said on 30/May/08
He didn't seem too tall on The Drew Carey show because just about everyone on that show was tall. Hell, Drew Carey and Kathy Kinney were the only average sized people. Weren't Craig and Diedrich Bader the same height on the show?
glenn said on 25/May/08
he looks really tall.
Jake Is Back said on 23/May/08
He doesn't look really look tall or short in the pic. Its just not ideal for judging his height.

The man's a max 2 inches taller than Drew Carey, I tell you (even factoring in the slouch)! So that would make him, what? 6'0" maybe.
Hillery said on 15/May/07
this may be the best talk show on which to currently base height, since the (suits i imagine at CBS) changed the opening so he has to walk out and greet each guest, so you get a much better guage than on letterman (who is usually up on the platform and its hard to tell often-times lol) . everything lately seems to add up to about 6-1 and change, based on the heighth comparisens.
Karin said on 29/Apr/07
In an old monolouge Craig tells his weight AND height. Maybe not precise but he said he was 6'2 and 205 pounds.
Anonymous said on 22/Mar/07
if Gerard Butler is 6'1.75 as listed on this site, then Craig Ferguson is a full 6'2 at the least
Snapper G said on 20/Feb/07
Yes, I would put him right on par with Letterman. I believe they both claim to be 6-2 but seem to be a bit under (though Letterman may have been 6-2 peak). Ferguson looks shorter than most truely tall guests (6-3+), but he's definitely over 6-1.
Trustiva said on 7/Feb/07
In a recent show with Allison Janney (she is 6 feet and was wearing high heels of about 6 cm) he was still a bit taller than her. So I think 187/188 is quite right.
Del Mar said on 27/Oct/06
Ryan reynolds was actually obviously taller than Craig when they shaked their hands, which was quite surprising! Then only proves Ryan is above 6-2.
J. said on 1/May/05
Okay, this is a detour to what the posts on this site are about, but Mr. R., I'm an aspiring screenwriter. Is it like feeding a Tic Tak to a whale in terms of getting a break in Hollywood as a screenwriter? And just out of curiousity, what's like living in glitzy Hollywood? I'm a native of Connecticut so I'm sure it would be pretty foreign to me! :-)
Mr. R said on 1/May/05
Tell you what Smoke, every now and then I have meetings at CBS in Hollywood. One day, I will get over to Fergie's studio, and try to size him up for you. Or, you can come and visit me, and we can go together. If you can get to Mexico, you can get to LA!
Smoke said on 30/Apr/05
May I add that, with all due respect to the hilarious Craig Kilborn, I do enjoy the Late Late Show a little bit more now than Fergie has taken over. However, as much as I enjoy his humour and the class that comes along with it, I also seem to be his biggest critic as far as height goes. Virtually every guest I've seen him with, he just looks like more of a 6'1" guy every time I see him. Sorry Rob, he just doesn't strikingly TALL! Now granted he is still tallish, like me, but I think that I guy can truely call himself tall when he's at the 6'2" mark (this is minimum height for many a Tall People's Club for men) and Fergie just doesn't look it. Again I think he's a great funnyman who also carries himself with a lot of class, but one thing Kilborn had on him was the height. He just doesn't quite look 6'2", maybe somebody else enjoys the show as much as I do out there!
Smoke said on 23/Apr/05
Caught another episode of his show with legendary boxing promoter Don King as a guest and King is billed as being 6'2" (the nature and validity of his billings are infamous) and Fergie still looked about an inch shorter. Now it might be the angle of the camera that shows him whenever he his greeting a guest, but to me it has been several celebs now that appear to show Fergie standing quite a bit under 6'2". Just how concrete could he have made this listing for himself while he was still standing at his peak?
Mr. R said on 11/Apr/05
I've actually seen Tony Hawk listed as 6-3 in a few places. Is that a little high Smoke?
Smoke said on 10/Apr/05
I caught a recent episode of his show on which Tony Hawk was a guest. I truely think Tony is a solid 188 cm, and he looked atleast an inch taller than Ferguson while wearing very flat healed sneakers, Ferguson was in dress shoes with about a 1 inch heal. Those in the U.K may have a good idea as to his height, but I really doubt him truely being 6'2". Compared to Tony Hawk he really did look about 6'0", again Tony has always looked a solid 6'2", and Ferguson to me looked about 2 inches shorter, even with Hawk wearing flatter shoes.
