Not really a comedy - more so a drama about a comedian. Or, is it?
20 July 2016 | by ryan-beauchesneSee all my reviews

I really enjoy Jim Gaffigan's stand-up, probably even more so than most people. I've watched every episode of the the Jim Gaffigan Show so far though (midway through season 2 now), and with each episode I'm eking closer to dropping it.

There's a few laughs here and there, but all in all, during 95% of the episode I don't even laugh. It's more of a drama about a comedian than an actual comedy. It's very self-deprecating of Jim, sometimes harshly and unbearably so. I know it's a TV show and it's ironic and for fun, but the jokes (against Jim) are so real and harsh sometimes that you literally feel bad for him - and wonder if this is even hurting his image!

At least if there was a captivating plot line, it could work as a drama. But it still follows the silly, whimsical story line that a comedy would - save for the laughs.

If there were some good supporting characters at least, it could work. But none of the other characters are funny either. Adam Goldberg is boring, dull, unfunny, and same with everyone else. The only other character I kind of like is Michael Ian Black (who I think is BRILLIANT in Another Period), but even in this show, he's not truly "funny".

Jim is the only person on the show you can rely on for laughs, and there aren't really much at that. So, it's not funny as a comedy. It's not interesting as a drama. I don't know what it is, but either way, it's just not holding my interest so I think I'll drop it.
