Jim Gaffigan is a Grammy nominated comedian, New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five. He recently wrapped the first season of his semi-fictitious television show, The Jim Gaffigan Show, which TV Land picked up for a second season and premieres this summer. The series, lauded by The Los Angeles Times as ͞Fun and Funny,͟ and People Magazine as ͞One of Summer TV͛s bright spots,͟was developed by Peter Tolan along with Gaffigan and his wife, Jeannie,who both also serve as executive producers and showrunners. The single-camera comedy co-stars Ashley Williams, Michael Ian Black, and Adam Goldberg and revolves around one man͛s struggle to balance fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite.
With multiple projects in motion, Gaffigan is currently traveling the world on behalf of his stand-up tour, Contagious, and headlined Madison Square Garden for the first time in December, becoming one of only ten comics in history to sell out The Garden. Last fall, Gaffigan had the honor of performing in front of Pope Francis and over 1 million festival attendees at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia.
Gaffigan͛s fourth special (Beyond the Pale -2006, King Baby -2009, Mr. Universe -2012), Obsessed premiered on Comedy Central in 2014 and the DVD/CD was released soon after by Comedy Central Records. Obsessedpremiered at #1 on iTunes which marked the fifth time Gaffigan reached the Top 25 Comedy category on iTunes. The album also earned a nomination for ͚Best Comedy Album of the Year͛ at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
Gaffigan was born in Elgin, Illinois and is the youngest of sixth children. He currently lives in Manhattan with his wife Jeannie, and their five children.
