One of the world’s highest grossing stand-up comedians, Jim Gaffigan is a GRAMMY nominated writer, actor, producer, author, top touring performer and multi-platinum-selling father of five. The creator and star of “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” he’s also guest starred on many television comedies and dramas, ranging from “Portlandia” and “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” to HBO’s cult hits “Flight of the Concords” and “Bored to Death” and dramatic roles in “Law & Order.” On the silver screen, his credits include “Three Kings,” “Hot Pursuit,” “Super Troopers” and “17 Again,” among many others.
With more than 25 years in the industry, Gaffigan’s remarkable career has been highlighted by writing the The New York Times Bestsellers “Dad Is Fat” and “Food: A Love Story;” performing for Pope Francis and over one million festival attendees at the 2014 Festival of Families in Philadelphia; and being one of only 10 comics in history to sell out Madison Square Garden.
Gaffigan’s fifth one-hour stand-up special, “Cinco,” premiered in January on Netflix. His upcoming films include “Chappaquiddick, “You Can Choose Your Family “and “Drunk Parents,” as well as “Super Troopers 2.”
