I first heard of Jim Gaffigan about four years ago through Beyond The Pale.Â Then he started popping up all over the place and it was magnificent.Â I still quote from that comedy CD and some of my favorite jokes are on there.Â The particular bit about cake is beyond sublime.Â â€œI just want you to know I partied.â€Â Thatâ€™s comic gold which never gets old.Â Luckily, thereâ€™s a new DVD of Jim Gaffiganâ€™s hilarious magic and itâ€™s ready on DVD right now.
Starting this March 31st, now available on DVD from Comedy Central DVD and Paramount Studios Home Entertainment comes the next stand-up special from one of the funniest and whitest people out there.Â Jim Gaffigan â€“ King Baby is ready to come blasting out of your television screen and bring a whole world of hilarity and bacon and glorious whiteness into your living room.Â Bring home this comedy juggernaut today!
Jim Gaffigan is a white comic who loves bacon and being lazy and his comedy forces you to revel delightfully in those facts.Â With his signature comic delivery, which includes a sotto voce take on what certain audience members must be thinking about his jokes, he is one of the true risen stars in this comic era.Â This DVD is a live recording of his final 2008 show in Austin, Texas, for the King Baby show.Â Itâ€™s glorious and magnificent and you will laugh like you havenâ€™t laughed in a long time.
The special features included in this DVD are beyond numerous.Â They include three episodes of Pale Force, four episodes of Our Massive Planet, an X/M Sirius radio interview, a British interview which has never been aired before, a great look at Jim in Atlanta, The Sexy Tour – Friday Night Stand Up, The Beyond the Pale Tour â€“ Friday Night Stand Up.
I love Jim Gaffigan so thatâ€™s certainly where this review starts.Â He can do little to no wrong and this film certainly continues that trend.Â The problem is that maybe his first film was a little too good and my expectations were set slightly too high.Â It seemed as though he was a little too slow to get started in the beginning.Â Weâ€™ve all heard that youâ€™re shockingly white and you like to eat â€“ we want new information along those lines now.Â Once he gets to the topic of bacon, a fantastically long segment, Jim is on a roll and everything really picks up from there.Â Never has a murdered animal seemed so crushingly hilarious.Â All in all, itâ€™s a great addition to your comedy library and something you can watch over and over again.
This DVD is King!
