 Jim Gaffigan Biography

Jim Gaffigan has proven himself a major talent beloved to a wide range of audiences after achieving milestones in stand-up, acting and writing. Gaffigan is responsible for some of the funniest and most memorable moments in recent television (primetime, cable and the late-night circuit) and film.

As a stand-up comedian, Gaffigan's clever, quiet style has earned him an unprecedented number of appearances on both CBS' Late Show with David Letterman and NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien. His one hour Comedy Central Special, CD and DVD, all entitled "Beyond the Pale" catapulted Gaffigan to one of the most popular touring and recorded comedians in the country today. The DVD for "Beyond the Pale" went Gold within the first six months.

After Gaffigan's first appearance on David Letterman, the host personally chose him to develop a sitcom for World Wide Pants. Eighteen months later, Welcome to New York debuted on CBS to critical acclaim. He then co-starred with Ellen DeGeneres on her CBS sitcom The Ellen Show.

For two years he had recurring roles both on FOX's That 70's Show and NBC's Ed. Gaffigan has also had roles on Sex and The City, Third Watch and each of the Law & Order shows, among others. Gaffigan can be seen this November in My Boys, TBS' first original scripted comedy series.

His standup material is often about fatherhood, observations, laziness, and food. He has had several successful comedy specials, including Mr. Universe, Obsessed, and Cinco, all three of which received Grammy nominations.

On film, Gaffigan has endeared himself to audiences by taking on vivid supporting characters in a number of genres. In the cult hit Super Troopers, Gaffigan got huge laughs and famously helped add "meow" to the lexicon of Vermont state troopers. Gaffigan's quiet dramatic turn in The Great New Wonderful, a meditation on the aftermath of 9/11, took audiences and critics by surprise as he embodied an office worker broken by tragedy who ultimately explodes in rage.

Gaffigan's other recent film credits include the forthcoming independent films The Living Wake and Stephanie Daley. He has also been featured in Trust the Man, 13 Going on 30, Three Kings, Final, Igby Goes Down, Entropy and Thirty Years to Life. In 2004, he co-starred in TNT's Bad Apple, with Chris Noth.

Gaffigan also co-wrote and voiced a character based on himself in Pale Force, a series of animated shorts that air on Conan and on the internet via webisodes. The series focuses on two pale crime-fighting superheroes that, like Gaffigan and O'Brien, are equipped with fair skin.

He has written two books, his memoir, "Dad Is Fat," and "Food: A Love Story." He also co-created and starred in a comedian-led sitcom, "The Jim Gaffigan Show," loosely based on his own life.

Many recognize Gaffigan from his numerous award-winning commercial campaigns, which include Sierra Mist, ESPN, Saturn, and Rolling Rock. His commercial presence earned him Business Week's 1999 "Salesman of the Year" honor.
