He’s So Pale…

October 14, 2009 at 10:34 pm (Comics)

I have seen the likes of Killer Beaz, The Ambassadors, and Brad Montague in concert (I know none of you have heard of any of these guys except DS b/c he took me to Killer Beaz), but now soon I will actually be able to say I’ve seen someone remotely famous in concert. On October 24th I’m heading up to the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN to see Jim Gaffigan, a successful comedian behind clean comedy albums like “Beyond the Pale”, “King Baby”, and “Doin’ My Time”. Gaffigan’s starred in shows like “That’s 70s Show” and does random spots as an extra, along with doing regular work with Conan O’ Brien. His stand up sets have also appeared on Comedy Central, earning him his own hour long special from the “King Baby” set. He’s not the most famous comedian, but his stuff is some of the funniest going around right now, he’s even been called “One of the best stand up comics in the country right now”. According to his personal website, Gaffigan is also very close with his fans and stays after shows to meet and greet with those who paid to see him, along with selling merchandise and old albums. I am totally excited for seeing his performance and cannot wait to get some pics from the trip. Check out  below to get a feel for some of his material.

“It is amazing how email has changed our lives. You ever get a handwritten letter in the mail today? “What the?… Has someone been kidnapped?””

“Ever wonder what people got Jesus for Christmas? It’s like ‘Oh great, socks. You know I’m dying for your sins right? Yeah, but thanks for the SOCKS. They’ll go great with my sandals. What am I, German?'”

“I do feel guilty at checkout when they’re bagging all my groceries. Talk about feeling lazy. ‘Hey, thanks for putting my groceries in my bag. Yeah I could help, but I’ll just watch. I’m exhausted from picking that crap out. You wanna come home and watch me eat ‘em? I’m lookin’ for a buddy.'”

“Oh cool, you got me a robe for my birthday-hope i get the flu so i can use it-what am i doing, shooting a porno?”

“I once dated an Asian. She was very Asian. She was a panda…”

“Lifetime, television for women. Yet for some reason women are always getting beaten on that channel.”

“You think when gym teachers were younger, they’re thinking, ‘You know, I want to teach, but I don’t want to read. How about kickball for 40 years?”
