As an accomplished storyteller and humorist, Craig’s performances are liberally sprinkled with stories that accompany his songs, including hating broccoli as a child, being attacked by mosquitoes at scout camp, always being the shortest kid in class, finding true love, and saying goodbye as his mother languished in a care center. His ability to weave music and lyrics into a very personal experience will have you roaring with laughter one minute and quietly dabbing your eyes the next. A consummate entertainer and storyteller, Craig will have your audience completely captivated for the entire evening.
