Jim Gaffigan has proven himself a major talent beloved to a wide range of audiences, achieving accolades and awards for his stand-up comedy, acting, and writing. His clever, quiet style has made him one of the top five most successful touring comedians in the country today and his CDs and DVDs have reached platinum sales.
Gaffigan has had an unprecedented number of appearances on late night’s “Letterman” and “Conan.” His writing and voice work on the animated series “Pale Force” for Conan led to nominations for both a Broadband Emmy and a Webby Award. Gaffigan has had breakout guest appearances on many comedies and dramas ranging from HBO’s cult hits “Flight of the Concords” and “Bored to Death” to dramatic roles in all three versions of “Law & Order.” In recent years, Gaffigan has also become a mainstay on the big screen with memorable roles in “Going the Distance”, “Away We Go,” “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” and “Salvation Boulevard.”
Further broadening his career, Gaffigan starred in his first Broadway production, “That Championship Season.” As part of the highly acclaimed play, Gaffigan appeared in the ensemble alongside Chris Noth, Brian Cox, Jason Patric, and Kiefer Sutherland. Gaffigan’s latest venture, a DRM-free download of his comedy special “Mr. Universe,” launched April 11 for $5. One dollar of each download will go to the Bob Woodruff Foundation, helping wounded servicemen and their family. Jim Gaffigan’s new book, “Dad Is Fat,” was released on May 7.
