What topics will Jim Gafiigan cover most on his 2014 tour?
Jim Gaffigan is widely considered a clean comedian, since he based nearly an entire tour around the greatness of food and the immortal interest of chocolate milk in 2003. He keeps cursing to an absolute minimum.
Gaffigan says he does not completely create a new set between tours. For example, a Jim Gaffigan set may cover a handful of new topics and bits, but he has a sort of greatest hits of material he poses often. His extremely popular hot pocket bit is a sort of closing section. He may rework the content some, but the main idea is presented in almost the same way. This makes his stand-up material a bit more similar to a concert in that some of the older material stays and some new stuff is included to keep things progressing. He covers material that falls under one of three major categories:
• Being a father
• Loving food
• Taboos of traveling
He may sometimes cover religion, but it is done in a very heartwarming and subtle way considering Gaffigan is a devout Catholic.
Gaffigan says he almost always writes new material with his wife, and the show from one tour to the next changes between 40% and 60%.
Is his show appropriate for all ages?
Comedians are rarely known for their tact and universal interest. Jim Gaffigan is famous for breaking a lot of comedic tropes and clichés and keeping his act clean. He rarely curses, if ever, and leaves a lot of more mature topics out of the picture entirely. Keep in mind that this is the same comedian well known for dissecting the nutritional and flavorful contents of a hot pocket. His show remains kid-friendly, for the most part, looking at the comedy of everyday events and situations.
How long is a Jim Gaffigan concert?
Jim Gaffigan performs his routine for about 65 minutes, which goes a little above and beyond the 60 minute standard but keeps things light without going on too long.
How do I get access to presale tickets for Jim Gaffigan’s tour?
Jim Gaffigan presale tickets are provided in a bit of an odd way with presale announcements through his Twitter page. Individuals need to follow his Twitter link back to his official website and use the presale password. More often than not, the password is announced right there on the Twitter page, including a link back to where you can use the given password to purchase the presale.
Passwords are also announced through the Jim Gaffigan Facebook page. The comedian has a huge social media presence and he takes advantage of the large network he built up over the last decade.
Presale Passwords Info also features an assortment of passwords. Individuals need an account to gain access to the password as well as an account with TicketMaster for the actual purchase of the ticket.
What is the comedian currently promoting?
This recent tour is partly in promotion of his second book of comedic essays set for an undated release date of summer 2014. This is the written follow-up to his memoir, Dad is Fat, which released in 2013.
His first collection, as well as his 2014 one, covers topics of childhood and growing up, religion, and Gaffigan staples like food and American gluttony.
Who is Jim Gaffigan’s publicist and press contact?

“Among other topics, he spoke about his dislike of weddings and wedding registries (joking about having to purchase an overly priced, giant fork), and about his wife’s seemingly “annual” pregnancy. His transitions between jokes were so seamless that they hardly felt like transitions at all. His entire stint on stage was essentially like one big joke that came full circle at the end, by which point my abs were literally sore from laughter. He concluded the show with his famous commentary, or well criticism, of Hot Pockets, which alone is worth giving a search on YouTube.” – Megan Washausen of Playback St. Louis
“An extended take on seafood seems destined to be his next Hot Pockets-level crowd pleaser, milking smart observational comedy from multiple angles, from the way a crab walks (“They look like they’re trying to avoid an awkward situation.”), to eating oysters (“I found a rock with some snot in it. I’m thinking of eating it.”) and anchovies (“What exactly is the difference between an anchovy and a sweaty eyebrow?”), to how calamari is overrated (“You could deep fry rubber hose and it would taste good.”)” – Piet levy of JS Online Milwaukee
“The more lithe Gaffigan is no coincidence. Much of his new material involved going to the gym or avoiding going the gym. Of course there were the standard riffs about food or fast food restaurants—the material that has made him famous—but there were also entertaining takes on being a father: “People ask me what it’s like to have a fourth child. Imagine you’re drowning. Then somebody hands you a baby.” – Brian Jacobson of Third Coast Daily
