Comedy for the Whole Family

Jim Gaffigan

Jim Gaffigan is one of my favorite comics. If you don’t recognize his name you are probably still familiar with his “Hot Pocket” routine. Food and family provide most of the fodder for his humor. Gaffigan consistently makes me laugh and his humor can be enjoyed by the entire family.

There are lots of ways to enjoy the comedy of Jim Gaffigan. I first enjoyed his humor listening to his comedy routines on CD, such as our copy of Beyond the Pale (available in HOOPLA too!). His comedy routines are also available on DVD. Gaffigan and his talented producer wife, Jeannie, created The Jim Gaffigan Show. The library has this show available on DVD as well. All of his comedy routines are available as audio recordings through Hoopla and both seasons of The Jim Gaffigan Show are available through Hoopla. Gaffigan has also written some humor books. My favorite is Dad is Fat. His book Food: A Love Story is also popular. If you need some cheer or you’re looking for family-time without a screen, gather around the CD player (or computer) and let Jim Gaffigan make you laugh.
