James Christopher "Jim" Gaffigan (born July 7, 1966) is an American stand-up comic and actor. He is best known for his Comedy Central Presents specials, a recurring role on the show My Boys and several nationwide commercials. Gaffigan's comedy routines often include humorous, high-pitched "asides" representing commentary on his performance from a hypothetical naive and easily offended audience member. Gaffigan is also known for various routines or skits relating to being lazy and eating food, especially famous routines regarding Hot Pockets, ketchup, and bacon. His 2006 album, Beyond the Pale, consisted primarily of material regarding food and American eating habits. The album was accompanied by an hour-long special on Comedy Central of the same name, which was also released on DVD. His 2009 album, King Baby, was also a television special filmed in Austin, Texas at the end of his tour, "The Sexy Tour". In a March 2009 interview on Anytime with Bob Kushell, Gaffigan defended his naming of the tour, stating that he thought it would be funny, but that parents were unsure about whether to bring their teenage children to the show.
