Jim Gaffigan Information
American stand-up comedian Jim Gaffiganâ€™s routines most notably include humorous, high-pitched "asides" representing commentary on his performance from a hypothetical naive and easily offended audience member, which were inspired by his sister. A night enjoying Gaffigan is a night with joke after joke about your favorite guilty pleasure comfort foods. â€œIts comfort comedy is what it is. He says it's about being lazy -- taking on topics such as bowling, escalators, moving sidewalks, camping, hammocks, the snooze button, futons, bean bags, pillows, bacon, meats, and fast food. But it's also about how we as human have strived to make our lives as comfortable as possible, and suddenly these mundane topics aren't quite as mundane and simplistic as they had seemed,â€ reviews Sean McCarthy of the Huffington Post.
Gaffigan has also established himself as funny guy on camera as well as mic, having starred in Super Troopers, Thirty Years to Life, Away We Go, 17 Again and starred in a vignette as part of the 2005 collection The Great New Wonderful. In 2009 Gaffigan released his seventh album, the seventeen track King Baby. Jim Gaffigan will be coming to the Citi Performing Arts Center in Boston November 13th and is also making New England appearances during August at the Cape Cod Melody Tent and Hampton Beach Ballroom Casino.
