Frontier Comedy Presents
Frontier Comedy are thrilled to announce that Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show, Flight of the Conchords, Portlandia, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bored to Death) will perform his biggest ever Australasian stand-up tour and debut New Zealand shows in March through April 2018.
Gaffigan is a Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, two times New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five, known around the world for his unique brand of humour which largely revolves around fatherhood and his observations on life.
With sold out live shows at some of the biggest venues on the planet and iconic film and TV roles including his critically acclaimed sitcom The Jim Gaffigan Show, Gaffigan is one of the most familiar faces in comedy in the world today.
‘One of our most intelligent observational humourists.’ The AV Club (US)
‘Gaffigan has become one of the best in the business at stitching together a solid set. Jokes fly every three or four seconds, some barely finished before he moves on to the next setup.’ The AV Club (US)
‘An assured, accomplished comic, America’s Jim Gaffigan can be relied upon to engage any audience with his smart, no-nonsense routines.’ Chortle (UK)
‘Gaffigan is profoundly gifted at seizing the audience’s attention and holding onto it, joke after joke after joke.’ The AV Club (US)
‘An expert craftsman...Gaffigan's true genius lies in his ability to appeal to large numbers of people from all ages and social scenes. He is the rare kind of comedian who is enjoyed by pretty much everyone. He is dirty and family-friendly, original and familiar, cuddly and disturbing. He's offbeat enough to appeal to underground fans of alternative comedy and clean as a whistle for the Leno crowd.’ Comedy Couch (CA)
‘Keeping up with Gaffigan’s observations and often sly humor could be a little dizzying for an audience that was constantly trying to catch its breath from laughing...it’s rare that a stand-up can do a full hour of material and never see a lull in the laughter. Gaffigan can.’ Borgota Blog (US)
