5.0 out of 5 stars The Funniest Special I've Ever Listened To!!! August 29, 2012
By F. Gwin
This special was HILARIOUS! If you like Jim then you will be rolling all throughout this special! I put this on a CD and listened to it in my car and I had to pull over I was laughing so hard. The special itself was about an hour and fifteen minutes. Much like Jim's bit on hot pockets was a classic, there are several bits here that will probably be remembered for a long time (Whales?)! I'm surprised to hear that other people have a hard time staying interested. I personally can't relate to a lot of his jokes, yet I still find them hilarious.

The special is mostly clean, except for a few swears. So if you only listen to clean comedians then this is the guy for you!

I'm not sure what else to say here without ruining jokes, but I cannot recommend this special highly enough. It was worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny guy September 15, 2012
Jim Gaffigan is a master of observational humor who can locate the absurdity in nearly any subject. His favorite topics are perfectly quotidian: fast food, which he craves; exercise, which he avoids; hotels, where he spends a lot of time; and kids, of whom he has four. Watch the brief video clips featured on this page to get a sense of Gaffigan's entertaining routines.

Using a rubbery face, a collection of odd voices, and the persona of a laconic, overweight schlub, he exaggerates everyday situations, stretching and distorting them until they snap and his audience bursts into laughter. I don't know how he keeps from being sued by the many corporations he mocks, like Disney and McDondald's and Domino's and Subway, but he somehow gets away with it. And fortunately sperm whales cannot file suit against a human being.

A remarkable thing about Gaffigan is that he can be delightfully droll without working blue. There's nothing offensive about his routines, and very few swear words, so you can watch his special with your family. While not always memorable, his insights are consistently amusing. They're kind of like the tasty french fries you love stuffing into your pie hole: you always want just a few more!

If you haven't heard Jim Gaffigan's comedy then you're missing one of the best. I don't enjoy routines filled with the F-bomb and lewd references. Jim manages to play in the PG13 area and still hit the comedy ball out of the park.

5.0 out of 5 stars So funny, not too crude March 25, 2014
By fibi59

Gaffigan is super funny and usually not too crude. This one is a little more so than the others he has done and towards the end I had to turn off the last few minutes when my kids were around, but the first 3/4 were hilarious and so worth buying. Love Gaffigan, hope he continues with "clean" humor!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth watching March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase
Running over an hour long, this DVD is worth buying. Jim delivers his unique brand of comedy as only he can. I still like Beyond the Pale better, but that doesn't take away from this show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! If you dont have this, you need to get it. October 23, 2014
Verified Purchase
Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! This is the best Jim Gaffigan has ever done. We laughed hysterically though the whole thing the first time through and still laugh after listening several more times (have the CD and DVD). There is so much great material here it is hard to highlight any one part. Subway is probably my favorite, but all are quite hilarious. Well, if you eat at Subway all the time maybe you want to skip it. It is a bit like Seinfeld, you will find your self with new catch phrases and then laugh at yourself after saying them. While at the indoor pool at a hotel this summer, I found myself wanting to ask the other people "what room are you staying in" but instead just laughed to myself. Get it, listen to it, you will understand. I would be truly shocked if anyone does not find this hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Belly Laughs October 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
Jim Gaffigan is hysterical! And what makes him even MORE spectacular is that he's not filthy, vile, or disgusting. Comedy with those ingredients isn't comedy in my book. He makes fun of everyday situations, which makes his comedy so brilliant and addictive. I have all of his DVDs, watch them multiple times, and laugh every time.

Thanks to Jim Gaffigan for taking the high road and having a clean act!
