Quotes

[first lines]
Jim Gaffigan: [as everyone cheers him coming out on stage] All right, all right! Stop it, you look like you're on drugs.
[breathy tone, almost whispering]
Jim Gaffigan: Oh, he's a pale fella. I didn't know he was gonna be so pale! Oh, that shirt looks like a tablecloth. Is that a shirt or a blouse? I think he's wearing his mother's blouse. His pants look dirty. I wonder if he's wearing a thong? I didn't wonder that; now I do. This is all he does. This is weird! I can barely hear what he's saying. Vaguely.

Hilarious and Stupid at the same time
22 September 2006 | by ambr-2See all my reviews

This sketch was absolutely brilliant. Its all about Jim Gaffigan talking about anything that comes to his mind.

Ranging from food to holidays he talks in numerous persons.

He talks as one person in the audience throughout and I was surprised at how much I laughed.

He is absolutely brilliant when it comes to stupid things like hot pockets and how holidays are degenerating our society.

His clever use of words is truly mindblowingly funny.

Go to your local Suncoast and shell-out the 10 to 15 bucks required to get this its worth it.
