Jim Gaffigan: The Pale Tourist World Tour

He has opened for Pope Francis and sold out Madison Square Garden – now you can find the funny in the everyday at the self-deprecating US stand-up’s new show.

Actor, writer, producer, four-time Grammy-nominated comedian, two-time New York Times bestselling author, two-time Emmy top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five Jim Gaffigan is taking The Pale Tourist on a world tour.

The comedian is perhaps best known for an impossibly funny skit about Hot Pockets (a microwaveable snack) and his wry observations on life as a father of five.

But he is also one of only ten comedians in history to sell out the famed Madison Square Garden arena, performed in front of one million people during the Pope’s visit to the US in 2016, and streaming site Pandora recently announced Gaffigan as their most popular comic with over 647 million spins to date.

The US standup star covers his love of junk food and his fear of doctors in a self-mocking set that shows off his voice as a well-tuned comic instrument ****
