Jim Gaffigan is a Grammy nominated comedian, actor, New York
Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling
father of five. Gaffigan is known around the world for his unique brand of
humor which largely revolves around fatherhood and his observations on life and
food. With multiple projects in motion, Gaffigan is currently on his Fully
Dressed arena and theater stand-up comedy tour, with dates through the end of
the year including multiple shows in London in January.
In a dramatic turn, Jim will next be seen in IFC
Films/Showtime’s, The Bleeder, opposite Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Ron
Perlman and Elisabeth Moss. The sports drama follows the true story of boxing
champ Chuck Wepner (Schreiber) who in 1975 went 15 rounds in the heavyweight
world championship against Muhammad Ali. Gaffigan portrays John Stoehr, the
ever-loyal best friend of Wepner. The Bleeder premiered at the Toronto
International Film Festival with a US release date to be announced shortly. Jim
was also recently cast as a series regular for season 3 of FX Networks’ Fargo,
playing the role of police deputy, Donny Mashman. Season 3 will premiere spring
Gaffigan recently wrapped production on Apex Entertainment’s
drama, Chappaquiddick, opposite Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern and Kate
Mara. The film follows the story revolving around Senator Ted Kennedy (Clarke)
and the tragic car accident that took the life of Mary Jo Kopechne (Mara) in
1968. Gaffigan plays District Attorney Paul Markham, who was on the island of
Chappaquiddick during the accident.
On the small screen Gaffigan and his wife, Jeannie, recently
ended their critically acclaimed semi-fictitious television show, The Jim
Gaffigan Show, after two seasons on TV Land. The series, lauded by The Los
Angeles Times as “Fun and Funny,” and People Magazine as “One of Summer TV’s
bright spots,” was written by Gaffigan and Jeannie who both also served as
executive producers and showrunners. The single-camera comedy co-starred Ashley
Williams, Michael Ian Black, and Adam Goldberg and revolved around one man’s
struggle to balance fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite.
Last December, Gaffigan became one of only ten comics in
history to sell out Madison Square Garden and few months prior, Gaffigan had
the honor of performing for Pope Francis and over 1 million festival attendees
at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia. Additionally, streaming site
Pandora recently announced that Jim is the most popular comic among its users
with over 647 million spins to date.
Gaffigan’s 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. Obsessed
premiered 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 Year’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards. All four of Jim’s specials
recently premiered on Netflix.
