Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Under the white guy "everyman" exterior lurks one of the cleverest original comedians of today. An established star in standup comedy and a frequent guest on the late shows of David Letterman and Conan O'Brien, Jim Gaffigan is a noted actor as well, from comedic turns in Super Troopers, That 70s Show and Sex and the City to dramatic roles in dozens of films and TV dramas. But here his unique comedy persona takes over -- cantankerous but endearing, clean but cutting, with an irrepressible "inside voice" that keeps wickedly popping out - to the delight of the audience in Chicago's historic Vic Theater. And now you can share their guffaws.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, and worth every penny August 22, 2006
By Miles
I caught this twice on TV and both times was laughing so hard it hurt. I just had to buy it so I could show it to more people. We must watch it at home at least a couple times a month now, and show it to everyone we can. Gaffigan is a genius in this: he is so funny, discusses so many common themes for his jokes (laziness, eating) with only a couple insinuating jokes that might be innappropriate, otherwise very clean-cut and not filled with bad language like so many other comedians. I am so glad I bought this, it has been so worth it and gotten so much time from my DVD player. We are always quoting from this, just so much of it is so true! You will love it and not be sad you spent the small price to buy it. There are some cute special features too, but the routine is the best part.

Jim Gaffigan is one of the best comedians I've seen in a long time. His jokes are great and fun for the whole family.

Jim Gaffigan manages to entertain and produce good quality comedy without resorting to sex jokes and dirty language. That's not to say crude humor can't tickle my funny bone just as well, but it's refreshing to listen to Jim Gaffigan's routine and not worry about offending the folks. =)

The bonus features on this DVD are sub-par, but the actual stand-up is great and well-worth the money. I highly reccomend this to all comedy fans, young and old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funneee!!! February 7, 2006
I didn't see this dvd, but did catch the special on Comedy Central last night. At first I was gonna change the channel, and was so glad I didn't. I loved his stuff about Hot Pockets, funny funny funny!! I absolutely LOVED his Inside Voice... "Hey, I like the IHOP!" "He's a crackhead!" "His pants look dirty." "Baloney hater!" "He better not!" One thing I really appreciated about his act was that it's clean, not vulgar or profane. It's something you can enjoy with your kids or elderly family members and not get embarrassed watching it. Humor in Hot Pockets, who knew?!

5.0 out of 5 stars HOOOOOOT Pocket!! March 16, 2006
This guy is the best comedian I've ever seen and I've seen 'em all. I drove out to Pittsburgh and listened to his CD for 10 straight hours, then bought the DVD the day I got back and watched it 3 times that week. I just can't get enough. My friends and I are still quoting him non-stop, 2 months later. His 'inner voice' is priceless! I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes to laugh, I've been recommending it to all of my friends as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising humor! February 8, 2006
We caught this special on Comedy Central last night - we NEVER watch this channel because most of the time comedians can't do an act without interjecting some sort of profanity. But, we were so glad we stopped to hear this truly original and so very funny man! From his bit about the different holidays to the hot pocket joke - we laughed so hard we were hurting! Our favorite thing he does is to say out loud what some in the audience might be thinking...he surprises you with it, but always does it in the same voice so you catch on to what he's doing. We thoroughly enjoyed this much I'm here reviewing what others read because I'm planning to purchase it as a gift for my husband!

5.0 out of 5 stars High-larious! January 29, 2006
I just watched a special on Comedy Central earlier tonight of this DVD. Granted, it was only 40 minutes of it, but it was amazing. All of the sketches were great, as usual - he made great use of the inside voices "But I like Pandas," "This guy isn't very nice," and "He's going to hell in two different religions." Obviously, I can't do justice to it, you'd have to see it for yourself... absolutely glorious. He also goes on a rant about hot pockets for 10 minutes... soo funny.. "hooooooooottt pooockkkeeeetttt."

You should definitely get this DVD, I know I'm going to

5.0 out of 5 stars I was at this taping December 26, 2005
I was in Chicago at the Vic Theatre the day that this was taped, and all I have to say is the show was great. Jim put on an amazing show for us, and uses a lot of new material, and even some really good jokes from his "Doing My Time CD/DVD". The show lasted just under an hour from what I remember and was well worth attending.

All I would say is if you like to laugh, or like cake, this DVD is for you. (once you see the show, you will understand what I mean about cake)

5.0 out of 5 stars Too funny March 15, 2006
My husband, a Chesterton native, caught the last few minutes of the special on Comedy Central. I searched the network and Gaffigan's website for a repeat so I could "tivo" it for him. Instead I bought the DVD. Such a good price. My husband has played it for tons of people already. My only complaint is that my 33 year old husband won't stop quoting the DVD and routinely quips "hooot pocket" or "chip, chop, chip" in his own, new "inner-voice." Planning to catch the tour this summer.
