Quotes

[first lines]
Jim Gaffigan: [as everyone cheers him coming out on stage] All right, all right! Stop it, you look like you're on drugs.
[breathy tone, almost whispering]
Jim Gaffigan: Oh, he's a pale fella. I didn't know he was gonna be so pale! Oh, that shirt looks like a tablecloth. Is that a shirt or a blouse? I think he's wearing his mother's blouse. His pants look dirty. I wonder if he's wearing a thong? I didn't wonder that; now I do. This is all he does. This is weird! I can barely hear what he's saying. Vaguely.

Didn't Get It
27 September 2006 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

Jim Gaffigan is the kind of comic you'll either find hilarious, or totally boring. Unfortunately, I am in the latter group.

After reading the other comments, I couldn't wait to see this program. However, after listening to Gaffigan talk about his eating disorders for half an hour, I couldn't wait for it to finish. In truth, I didn't wait for it to finish. Having cracked but a single smile during the first half of the program, I turned it off and went to brush my teeth, which turned out to be vastly more entertaining.

Please understand that I am not criticizing the positive comments of others. It's just that I guess comedy is a very personal thing.

For my money, "Death of a Salesman" was funnier than this program.
