He’s probably the whitest guy you’ve ever seen, he has a love/hate relationship with Hot Pockets and, he likes to talk to himself. He can riff on bacon for hours and he’s Conan O’Brien’s sidekick as half of cartoon superhero duo Pale Force. His name is Jim Gaffigan and he’s a funny guy. Comedian, actor, and writer, Gaffigan’s clever, quiet style has earned him an unprecedented number of appearances on shows like the Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. “I’m a vegetarian now,” Gaffigan informed a Comedy Central audience during a stand up special. “I’m not a strict vegetarian though, I eat beef and pork…and chicken, but not fish because that’s disgusting.” The 45-year-old comedian from Chesterton, Indiana has appeared in guest roles on popular comedy shows like Bored To Death, Flight of the Conchords, That 70’s Show, and The Ellen Show. After two decades of comedy, which has included appearances in film and as a cartoon, Gaffigan has never left stand-up comedy far behind. Have a large slice of cake and go see Jim Gaffigan at the UB Center for the Arts this Saturday (Oct 22). —cory perla
