After cancelling his 2017 shows, American comedy stalwart Jim Gaffigan announced that he will be back on the road this 2018. He will be gracing Brisbane Comedy Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival before playing Sydney’s Enmore Theatre all in March to April next year.
The multi-talented comedian is sure to bring nothing but pure humour and solid fun with his first visit down under in four years. Known for his comical take on fatherhood and for blurting out his funny observations on how things are, he’s one to make you throw yourselves against your seats in laughter.
“One of our most intelligent observational humourists.” – The AV Club
“Keeping up with Gaffigan’s observations and often sly humor could be a little dizzying for an audience that was constantly trying to catch its breath from laughing…It’s rare that a stand-up can do a full hour of material and never see a lull in the laughter. Gaffigan can.” – Borgota Blog, US
There’s no denying that the world of comedy is where Jim belongs. After getting his degree in Finance, he immediately started building up his career by attending seminars on stand-up and playing in comedy bars. His love for the craft surely paid off—he starred in films, had guest appearances on many television shows, and wrote two New York Times’ best-selling books entitled ‘Dad Is Fat’ in 2013 and ‘Food: A Love Story’ in 2014. He also became one of only 10 comedians so far to sell out the prestigious Madison Square Garden in New York.
Make sure you grab your tickets ’cause Jim Gaffigan is sure to make you laugh out loud with his every joke this 2018!
