You probably know Jim Gaffigan even if you don't recognize the name. He's that pale comedian. That really pale comedian who speaks in two voices while standing on stage. The near albino fellow who confiscates your Sierra Mist. If none of that helped, just look at the DVD cover. If you still don't know Jim Gaffigan - you've been missing out. Jim Gaffigan is one of the best up and coming (if not newly established) comedians today. His first DVD special Beyond the Pale was comically hysterical. If you don't think it's possible to stand on stage and talk about food for two hours - then you've yet to be enlightened by the Gaffigan. For King Baby, Gaffigan's second DVD special, Gaffigan resumes his food-oriented routine while hearkening back to a few of his earliest routines about that good old sedentary lifestyle. »
