"I've never eaten a Hot Pocket and thought, 'I'm glad I ate that,'" Gaffigan says in his signature bit. "It's always been, 'I'm gonna die!'" The pale-faced comic (his first DVD was his 2006 Comedy Central special, Beyond the Pale) has built a large following with hilarious riffs on everyday topics such as cake, vegetarians, and Christmas trees. Known for his deadpan delivery, high-pitched voices, and "dumb-idea guy" schemes, Gaffigan is an accomplished actor as well. Check out www.jimgaffigan.com to view clips of his appearances on everything from That '70s Show, The Ellen Show, and Sex and the City to his multiple standup spots on Letterman and Conan. Gaffigan currently stars in My Boys, a TBS sitcom that was just picked up for a second season.
