Synopsis

Album Description
Jim's cutting edge, clever, quiet style has earned him an unprecedented number of appearances on both Letterman and Conan O'Brien. His special, "Comedy Central Presents: Jim Gaffigan", remains one of the highest rated for all stand up specials on the network. He's a national club staple, and for the past two years has had recurring roles on "That '70s Show" and "Ed". He's also appeared in more than two dozen feature films ranging from big budget ("Three Kings", "Road Trip") to indie ("Final", "Igby Goes Down", "Entropy"). "Doin' My Time" puts all of his classic material on one CD from a one night stand in Seattle, and the DVD compiles his best Comedy Central performances, including the highly rated "Comedy Central Presents".

CD Reviews

I laughed, I cried.

"I can't count the stand-up routines I hear or see and hardly crack a smile. Not so with Jim Gaffigan. Even after repeat listenings, I still laugh out loud many times it's so funny. The jokes and observations are excellent, and his delivery makes it even better. He definitely has his own thing going on. I also own and love his "Last Supper" disc, but this one is kind of a best of Jim, and comes with a DVD as well, so it's a no-brainer. Another hysterical combo is the last disc from Mitch Hedberg. Now that Mitch has past on, Jim is the best comic going from what I've heard. "Doin' My Time" is even better when enjoying a tasty Hot Pocket."
Quotable CD/DVD

"There are a lot of jokes here that you'll start repeating over and over again. You'll probably start saying them to yourself and will come off looking completely insane. Although there is not a lot of material on this CD/DVD, what is here is worth the price because you'll listen to it over and over. A word of caution however: DO NOT DRIVE WHILE LISTENING TO THIS CD. You'll only wind up annoying everyone driving behind you.

Some stand out tracks are the ones about Beauty and Sleep("I stayed to do what?...watch Growing Pains? What was I thinking?")
As mentioned by other reviewers Jim has this thing where he pretends to be an audience member. After a joke he'll make a whispered comment as if he were in the audience. I laughed when I read one reviewer didn't give five stars because of the language. On one part of the cd when Jim uses profanity in a joke he whispers right after(playing an audience member)"I didn't know he was going to cuss so much." So funny.

I'm glad they included the DVD as well because the "Future Pope" and "Manatee1" jokes go over a lot better on the DVD than on the cd. If you enjoy humour like Arrested Development or The Daily Show you'll love this CD/DVD."
Excellent...

"Never heard of Jim Gaffigan but ordered this CD based on the reviews and I'm very glad I did. Just finished listening to the CD for the second time and liked it even more. Looking forward to viewing the DVD but the CD alone was worth the price."
