Synopsis

Album Description
Gaffigan is considered a true triple threat, having achieved major milestones in stand-up, acting, and writing. Under the white guy "everyman" exterior lurks one of the cleverest original comedians of today. An established star in stand-up comedy and a frequent guest on Letterman and Conan, Gaffigan is a noted actor as well, from comedic turns in "Super Troopers" "That 70's Show", and "Sex And The City" to dramatic roles in dozens of films and TV dramas. But here, his unique persona takes over - cantankerous but endearing, clean but cutting, with an irrepressible "inside voice" that keeps wickedly popping out - to the delight of the audience in Chicago's historic Vic Theater. Now you can share their guffaws.

Jim Gaffigan: A true Prince of Comedy
Lobsta Johnson | Bruttenholm, TN | 03/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I met Jim in Saint Peterburg, FL, several years ago, and he is one of the most gentle souls in comedy. His act combines sarcasm with self-deprecation and even a little multiple-personality disorder thrown in for good measure (he constantly reviews his act while he's doing it in the voice of a bewildered audience member) and it is simply hilarious. He's just a big goofy doofus with a genius IQ and the ability to find the humor in just about any situation.

If you've never heard Jim, do yourself a favor and buy this CD. It's a gem. Even better, listen for his appearances on Opie and Anthony on XM Radio Channel 202. Unlike some comics that can only work off their material, Jim is funny when he's just having a conversation and his XM appearances are radio gold.

The Funniest Thing I Have Ever Heard!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have comedy CDs from the masters. Cosby, Seinfeld, Woody Allen, Carlin, and the Blue Collar Boys. All hilarious, but this CD is better than them all. When i listened to this, i laughed so hard, i couldnt breath for 2 minutes. This is the funniest thing ever! The only complaint i have is that they cut out one of the funniest parts of his show on Comedy Central "Baby Daddy." Get this, get the DVD, get his other CD + DVD combo, and go on ebay, and get his first two CDs. A comic god!"
I never get tired of listening to this CD.

"I think Jim Gaffigan is one of the funniest guys out there. His material is not crude or shocking, it is just plain funny. Many of my friends and family are huge fans as well. We have the DVD too, the CD is just a lot more fun for the car. I highly recommend this CD."
