Editorial Reviews

The greatly anticipated follow up to the platinum selling Beyond the Pale. In this Austin performance that capped off the 2008 sold-out stand up tour, Gaffigan does not let the audience catch their breath. This all-new show proves no other comedian working today can romanticize laziness and over-indulgence like Jim Gaffigan.

4.0 out of 5 stars absolute awesomeness March 26, 2009
Format:DVD
Mortal men might be ashamed at their pudginess, laziness, and gastronomical obsession, but not Jim Gaffigan. Instead, Gaffigan uses these characteristics as punchlines that have surely earned him hundreds of dollars as he travels the country to inform the masses how much of a pig he is, and how they pretty much are too. Fresh off his widely successful Beyond the Pale DVD, released in 2006, Jim Gaffigan has decided to once again grace us with his shockingly pale presence in his newest DVD, King Baby.

Filmed during a stint in Austin, Texas, King Baby is perhaps best used as a pedagogical tool. In it we learn the wonders of meat, the absurdities of camping, and the sheer genius of the escalator and snooze bar. Of course, this is not all as there are many other topics discussed to both gladden the heart and inform the mind.

Most known for his "Hot Pockets" bit, Gaffigan spends most of his time on stage talking about food in ways both memorable and ethereal. After spending a little over an hour at the feet of this master of burlesque, the student will no doubt desire to adorn all food with bacon (or at least the most magical form of bacon: the bits of bacon), only achieving perfection if done while lounging on the couch and watching television at the same time.

In addition to the main feature, this disc also contains many insightful extras. These include Comedy Central commercials for both the Beyond the Pale and King Baby specials, interviews with the baron of jest himself, PSAs for "Our Massive Planet," and three "Pale Force" animated shorts.

If anyone can make jokes about bacon, being lazy, playing bowling and hot pockets for long period of time and make people laugh, Jim Gaffigan can definitely make it happen!

With the success of Gaffigan's Comedy Central DVD "Beyond the Pale", Gaffigan returns with "King Baby". From the starting menu of the DVD featuring two young kids pigging out on BBQ ribs, you know that you're going to be in for a fun time.

Filmed in Austin which capped off his sold-out 2008 stand-up tour, Gaffigan is on fire as his routine consists of going out bowling, being lazy, going camping, his bedroom, ketchup, waffle house and of course, being known for his comedy routine about bacon and much, much more.

Featuring 30 minutes of extra footage not see in the "Comedy Central" special, Gaffigan's comedy at best is comedy that doesn't have to get explicit. He literally talks about everyday things that people think about and makes it funny. From getting a disease by putting your finger in the holes of a bowling ball to losing a remote while your laying down and of course, America's love for bacon. These jokes are funny because people have experienced them and immediately know what he's talking about.

His comedic delivery is smooth and constant and at times even poking fun at himself and using a high or an effeminate voice when criticizing his own jokes. So, overall, "King Baby" was an enjoyable live performance by Gaffigan but despite the 70-minute runtime, you realize how much special features are packed on this DVD. And there are a lot!

VIDEO & AUDIO:

"King Baby" is featured in widescreen. Picture quality is good with good angles from the front, side and towards the audience and above the audience. Good editing and overall, easy to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Gaffigan masterpiece March 4, 2010
Format:DVD
If you've ever seen a Jim Gaffigan special, this is more of the same without being the same. I now own this special, and beyond the pale and I can't personally pick a favorite between the two. Highly recommended for stand-up comedy buffs everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hahahaha December 25, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Jim Gaffigan. He is tied as my favorite comedian, along with Brian Reegan and Jerry Seinfeld. These 3 are masters of the observational, lice-of-life humor, and best of all, these are also 3 of the cleanest comedians out there. So Thumbs up all around.

The best part of this DVD is that our entire family finds it hilarious- our 11 and 14 year olds find it as funny as we do, and it is not inappropriate humor....funny yet family friendly, at least for bigger kids. We got both of his DVDs and laugh our heads off at both! Enjoy!!
