Jim Gaffigan: The Fixer Upper Tour

Resch Center – Friday, April 27, 8 p.m.

Tickets on sale Friday, October 6 at noon

Green Bay (Oct. 2, 2017) - Jim Gaffigan is a Grammy nominated comedian, New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five.  He recently wrapped the first season of his semi-fictitious television show, “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” which TV Land picked up for a second season. The series, lauded by The Los Angeles Times as “Fun and Funny,” and People Magazine as “One of Summer TV’s bright spots,” was developed by Peter Tolan along with Gaffigan and his wife, Jeannie, who both also serve as executive producers and showrunners. The single-camera comedy co-stars Ashley Williams, Michael Ian Black, and Adam Goldberg and revolves around one man’s struggle to balance fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite.

Gaffigan’s fourth special (“Beyond the Pale” -2006, “King Baby” -2009, “Mr. Universe” -2012), “Obsessed” premiered on Comedy Central in 2014 and the DVD/CD was released soon after by Comedy Central Records.  Obsessed premiered at #1 on iTunes which marked the fifth time Gaffigan reached the Top 25 Comedy category on iTunes. The album also earned a nomination for ‘Best Comedy Album of the Year’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

In 2013, Jim’s first book, Dad Is Fat, was released by Crown Publishing and debuted at #5 on The New York Times Bestseller’s List and remained on the list for 17 weeks.  His second book, Food: A Love Story, was released in the fall of 2014 and debuted at #3 on The New York Times Bestseller’s List.

In addition to his own television show, widely popular stand-up comedy and best-selling books, Jim has guest starred on many television comedies and dramas, ranging from “Portlandia” to HBO's cult hits “Flight of the Concords” and “Bored to Death” to dramatic roles in all three versions of “Law & Order.”
