Get ready to laugh until it hurts as popular comedian Jim Gaffigan takes the stage at The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. One of the top comics touring today, he consistently sells out multiple nights at huge theaters across the country with his original and entertaining skits.
Gaffigan’s comedy routines often include humorous, high-pitched "asides" representing commentary on his performance from a hypothetical naive and easily offended audience member. South Floridians can also expect hilarious jokes about being lazy and fast food, as some of his best known and most popular skits are based on Americaâ€™s obsession with eating.
In 2004 Gaffiganâ€™s stand up material was featured in Comedy Central’s animated series Shorties Watchin’ Shorties. His 2006 album, Beyond the Pale, was accompanied by an hour-long special of the same name on Comedy Central and released on DVD. His 2009 album, King Baby, was also a television special filmed in Austin, Texas at the end of his "The Sexy Tour." Beloved by a wide range of audiences, Gaffigan has achieved many accolades and awards for his stand-up, acting and writing. He is responsible for some of the funniest and most memorable moments in comedy today and has seen huge success with his albums.
Gaffigan has also made many appearances on television throughout his career. He was a regular on That â€˜70s Show and Ed, a cast member of the TBS original sitcom My Boys, as well as a guest star on HBOâ€™s Flight of the Conchords and on two Law & Order episodes. In addition, he has acted in several films over the years, including Super Troopers, 13 Going On 30, Trust the Man, The Love Guru, 17 Again and many others. He even produced a series of animated shorts for Late Night With Conan O’Brien, titled Pale Force, in which the animated Gaffigan and O’Brien are superheroes who fight crime with their extremely pale skin.
Most recently, Gaffigan taped an all-new 75-minute stand-up special Mr. Universe in Washington, D.C. and announced that it would be available online through his website with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Bob Woodruff Foundation, helping veterans and their families. Mr. Universe offers Gaffigan musing, in typical Gaffigan form, about everything from having a fourth child and (not) working out to how fat whales are for animals who constantly â€˜work outâ€™ by swimming to fast food outlets of all kinds.
