In ‘Cinco,’ the Grammy-nominated comedian and father of five discusses why cable news anchors have to be so attractive, the pointlessness of hiking, and America’s fascination with pickup trucks. The album release also coincides with Gaffigan’s world arena tour Noble Ape.
This is a quick view of his Netflix show.
JIM GAFFIGAN is a Grammy nominated Comedian, New York Times Best Selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum selling father of five. In May of 2013, Jim’s first book ‘Dad is Fat’ was released by Crown Publishing debuting on the New York Times bestsellers list at #5 and remained in the top 20 for 17 weeks. His second book Food: A Love Story will be released on October 21, 2014 under the same imprint. His fourth hour-long special “Obsessed” premiered on Comedy Central on April 27th, 2014 becoming the most-watched stand-up special since April 2013. The album, by the same title, debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200, and charted #1 on iTunes giving Gaffigan four albums in the Top 10 Comedy Albums on iTunes. At the 2014 American Comedy Awards he was awarded Best Concert Comedian. Gaffigan lives in New York City with his wife Jeannie and their five children.
We all need to relax and laugh and that is what this does. He is funny and does not use fowl language, like a lot of comedians do.
An interview he did with People magazine:
“I have five because I’m secretly starting my own nationality,” he jokes.
Or, Gaffigan says, he keeps adding to his brood to make himself a better person.
“I used to have this joke that each of kids has made me a more decent person and a better person, and based on that, all I would need is 34 more to be a decent guy,” Gaffigan, 50, says. “But I think there’s a patience you learn. Parenting — I don’t want to say it’s a cure for narcissism, but you can’t really be that obsessed with your self-interest when somebody’s screaming at night.”
I am going to a blog conference soon and planned on listening to this on the way down so I will update this review when I return.
I received this to give my honest opinion and will update a little later.
