Audience Reviews for Jim Gaffigan: Beyond the Pale
Amazing. Gaffigan is the King of awkward/funny!
Jim Gaffigan has such a unique and original style of comedy that some people might not be able to appreciate it. I'm not sure if there's a term for it but I tend to think of it as "varying perspective stand-up". Throughout his routine he often takes on the persona of a member of the audience critiquing himself through "someone else's" eyes. Many times, this is actually the "punch line" of his joke. Yes, much of his content is food related but hey, we all gotta eat :)
Jim Gaffigan is funny as hell, but if I was a woman, I'd be creeped out by him and his humor. Gaffigan has mastered the awkward comedy routine, something that most comedians could not do even if their lives depended on it. His bit on Hot Pockets was so good that even now whenever I go to the grocery store and see Hot Pockets, I have Gaffigan's voice in my head singing "Hot Pockets." I suppose since I am not a woman and Gaffigan isn't hitting on me I find him hilarious instead of creepy. Great stand-up special.
