JIM GAFFIGAN: NOBLE APE
First show: July 13
“Remarkably, his career accomplishments — and the fact that he has five kids — haven’t diminished his ability to convincingly play the bumbling American everyman. In fact, they’ve only heightened the divide between man and comedian, clearly showcasing both his dedication to the craft and the level of talent he’s working with to be able to deliver nonstop one-liners and observations one after another with seamlessly smooth transitions while portraying a witless slob. His shtick — and it’s a good one — is that he is a useless doofus with a one-track mind, self-centered, cocksure and always ready to eat. Essentially, he is a live-action Homer Simpson.” – Zach Freeman, Chicago Tribune
In his all-new stand up special NOBLE APE, beloved comic Jim Gaffigan gets personal as he discusses the medical crisis that befell his wife and family this year, which almost led to his retirement.
