For years now, comedy giant Jim Gaffigan has been selling out theaters across the country, popping up in movies and on television and releasing stellar albums and DVDs. And now, he’s adding Broadway actor to his resume as he recently landed a co-starring role in That Championship Season, a revival of the 1973 Tony Award winning play.
But this weekend and next, you’ll be able to catch the famously pale comedian at the Nokia Theater in New York City; to be exact, Dec. 3, 4 (sold out already!), 17 and 18— two shows each night, except the one on the 17th. Get your tickets at JimGaffigan.com.
Just earlier today, I got to chat with Jim about his foray into Broadway, the idea of perception vs. reality as it relates to comedy, how he balances fatherhood with being one of the country’s biggest comedians and lots more. Check it out below. Best of all- no more reading. Enjoy!
