Grammy-nominated, New York Times best-selling stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan returns to the Fair for two side-splitting, laughter-filled shows! Since his 2015 appearance at the Fair, Gaffigan released his newest special album, Cinco, and starred in his own TV show, “The Jim Gaffigan Show.” The dry, clever comic is currently wrapping up his 2017 Noble Ape Tour, which took him around the U.S. as well as Europe, and is preparing to launch his 2018 tour, The Fixer Upper. Gaffigan’s previous special, “Obsessed,” premiered at No. 1 on iTunes and also earned a nomination for Best Comedy Album of the Year at the 2015 Grammys.
In addition to stand-up, the comedian has also penned two books: the 2013 “Dad is Fat,” which debuted at No. 5 on the New York Times Bestseller’s List and remaining on the list for 17 weeks, and 2014’s “Food: A Love Story,” which debuted at No. 3 and stayed on the bestseller list for 10 weeks.
A regular on the late-night talk show circuit and an in-demand actor, Gaffigan has appeared on “The Ellen Show,” “Law and Order,” “Sex and the City” and “That 70s Show,” as well as played roles in films such as “Three Kings,” “Road Trip” and “Igby Goes Down.”
He'll appear at two shows - 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.. Lawn area is $55, reserved seating $75 and premier seating $95.
