Jim Gaffigan        

Grammy-Nominated Comedian & Actor

Jim Gaffigan is a five-time Grammy nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, two-time New York Times best-selling author, two-time Emmy winning top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling recording artist. He is known around the world for his unique brand of humor, which largely revolves around his observations on life.

On the silver screen, his many credits include Three Kings, Super Troopers 1 & 2, and Chappaquiddick. 2019 is Gaffigan’s biggest year to date with an astonishing eight films releasing,  three which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival including Troop Zero with Viola Davis and Alison Janney, Them That Follow and Light From Light – with many festival goers calling Gaffigan the “King of Sundance.”

Gaffigan also had two films this year in which he was the lead. They are a comedic film Being Frank -- which opened Father’s Day Weekend -- and American Dreamer, a dark thriller that opened 9/20. American Dreamer is grand finale of 2019 for Jim, and features him as an ride share driver who moonlights as a private driver for a drug dealer. Both films are now available for download.

In April 2019, Gaffigan was seen alongside Alec Baldwin and Salma Hayek in Bron Studios’ Drunk Parents. Additionally, Gaffigan recently released his unprecedented 7th stand up special, Quality Time with Amazon Studios making history as their first original comedy special. He also continues to tour around the world.

In addition to two seasons of the critically acclaimed semi-autobiographical The Jim Gaffigan Show, which he wrote and produced with his wife Jeannie, and his widely popular stand-up comedy specials, Gaffigan has guest starred on many television comedies and dramas, ranging from Portlandia and Bob’s Burgers to the HBO cult hits Flight of the Concords to dramatic roles in Law & Order.

Gaffigan regularly does humorous commentaries on CBS Sunday. Last year Jim served as master of ceremony at The Al Smith Memorial dinner.  In 2015, Gaffigan had the great honor of performing for Pope Francis and over 1 million festival attendees at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia.

Gaffigan and his wife currently live in Manhattan with their five loud and expensive children.
