Jim Gaffigan is a four-time Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, two-time New York Times best-selling author, Emmy winning top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling recording artist.
He's coming to Prague with his Quality Time Tour and will play at Lucerna on July 15.
He is known around the world for his unique brand of humor, which largely revolves around his observations on life. He sold out Madison Square Garden (one of only 10 comedians to ever manage it) and had the great honor of performing for Pope Francis.
Gaffigan proved his comic merit and steadily climbed the ladder to stand-up success, eventually landing an appearance on fellow Hoosier David Letterman's talk show Late Show with David Letterman (1993).
The gap-toothed late night yukmeister was so impressed by Gaffigan's first appearance that he handpicked him to develop a sitcom for the Letterman-owned production company World Wide Pants. The fruit of this union, a sitcom entitled Welcome to New York (2000), was canceled shortly into its initial run despite critical acclaim. Fortunately, the stand-up artiste's career was very far from over. He went on to guest-star on a veritable who's who list of hit shows including That '70s Show (1998), Sex and the City (1998), Squadra emergenza (1999), Ed (2000) and Law & Order (1990).
