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.

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 this TV 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!

We own all the other Jim Gaffigan stand-ups and this one is just as hilarious! I would highly recommend it!

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!

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.

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.

This is Jim Gaffigan's 3rd dvd and it is probably the funniest- he gets better with time. His act is pretty tame so that's appreciated. Again I think the price (about $10) in my opinion is rather high.

I consider myself a collector of Stand-Up Comedy. I like a wide variety of comedians, from the raunchy to the relatively "clean-cut". Jim Gaffigan has always fit well into the latter category, never really using too much profanity and never being heavily controversial. As a result, most of his jokes are "cute" - they're funny, but never really make you fall off your chair laughing. After sharing his DVD's with friends, I've often gotten replies such as, "That guy sucks" or "Incredibly boring..." I can understand that he's not everyone's cup of tea.

Mr. Universe however is probably one of the funniest Gaffigan specials I've ever seen. His delivery is no different than usual - he starts off with the feminate "whisper" voice that has become a staple in his specials. Most of it is still observational humor, but this time he seems to prod just a smidge deeper into the "typical human psyche." I was laughing hysterically at some of his jokes, and even my wife agreed that this show was much funnier than his usual.

If you're a Gaffigan fan already, you'll love this special. A few of his jokes are reused from older material, but not much, and he continues to build on those original ideas with new material.

I would also recommend this to the fans of "blue collar" comedy - most of this material is clean and can be shared with older children and in-laws without having to feel nervous.

Very well done, Jim. Keep 'em coming.
