How on earth does Jim Gaffigan have a career?

He is the least funny person in human history.

He’s ugly af too

I disagree, I find him funny. He’s also “family friendly” so he has that angle going for him.

Most comedians are unattractive.

Haven't heard him lately but used to find him hilarious

by Anonymousreply 305/17/2020

Is he hung?

by Anonymousreply 405/17/2020

He's gone into family friendly dad humor. I was shocked when he showed up on This Morning, I guess he's an intellectual too.

He's slowly morphing into Peter Griffin.

R4 would anyone even remotely be able to find it in his gunt?

He's had some really fresh and funny stand-up routines. He's one of my favorites. Some of his takes on food, camping, hotels, etc. are spot on and hilarious.

I think OP watched his Sunday Morning on CBS gig, which is just weird. I admit he has not been very funny on that show, but it doesn't mean he doesn't have some great standup.

Steady middle of the road career. He was so funny in his guest appearance on Flight of the Conchords.

R9 bingo, that's where I have been seeing him.

But he was in several shows before too. They had a sitcom on CBS with him and Christine Baranski which was just painful to watch. I have never found him funny.

He’s funny. It’s gentle observational humor.

by Anonymousreply 1205/17/2020

He isn’t OP. Fraus and older people find him charming and non-threatening. The people here who find him hilarious are likely middle age. Not knocking that. I’m really not. But he isn’t really a comedian as much as he is a product for family friendly mommies and grandparents. And he knows it. He’s pretty smart to fill that gap with his “product”.

I don't think of him as a 'clean' comedian, just a really funny guy. In the Seinfeld series ' comedians in car getting coffee' he and Seinfeld talk about the difficulty of working clean - how easy it would be to go the 'fuck' route instead of crafting a punch line. Brian Regan is another comedian who puts a lot of work into his bits and it pays off in big laughs. Also, these guys do not have a corps of writers; they write their own shtick so it's amazing they can offer a fresh show every year (except for Seinfeld; he's still rehashing shit).

I love him for talking about encountering a non-working escalator and yelling from the bottom for help. I think about that a lot.

by Anonymousreply 1505/17/2020

He's funny. He has that one joke about female crime victims I find hysterical. It's about how shows like 48 Hours always say, everyone loved her...hello, she was murdered; someone hated her, kind of a lot.

I liked his TVLand sitcom, with Michael Ian Black as his wife's bitchy gay friend. I could almost even tolerate Adam Goldberg. Macaulay Culkin had a recurring role as himself.

Momma told you the world revolved around you, didn't she OP?

by Anonymousreply 1805/17/2020

I know him only from CBS Sunday Morning. He annoys but never amuses.

by Anonymousreply 1905/17/2020

My mother and I are bonded over the fact that we mutually despise him.

by Anonymousreply 2005/17/2020

and here he is again, with his not-cute lisp

by Anonymousreply 2105/24/2020

I don't really know much about him, haven't caught him on tv or whatever he does very often. I did check out his book "Food: A Love Story from the library and it was mind numbingly boring. A lot of those sorts of books are, unfortunately.

by Anonymousreply 2205/24/2020

His new special is funny

by Anonymousreply 2305/24/2020

Clearly, OP is in denial. The world loves this guy or else he wouldn't have millions of dollars. Just sayin'

by Anonymousreply 2405/24/2020

In fairness, Jim Gaffigan isn't even close to the "least funny person in human history." People like Jimmy Fallon and Andy Samberg are more deserving of that distinction. Granted, that doesn't make Gaffigan funny, but he did make me giggle once when he was on Andy Cohen's show. I wish I could find the clip online, but Andy was talking about being gay and said "I'm a top." Gaffigan giggled like a school girl and Andy shot him a nasty look. It was extremely funny and Gaffigan didn't even have to say a word.

OP, less funny than Hitler? Bin Laden? Vlad the Impaler? Milton Berle?
