  • Jim Gaffigan was on “The Tonight Show” last night and sat down while performing stand-up

    Jim Gaffigan Tonight Show

    Jim Gaffigan was the guest on The Tonight Show to promote the paperback release of his excellent book, Dad Is Fat as well as his forthcoming stand-up special Obsessed which premieres on Comedy Central this weekend.

    We love Gaffigan and will watch him perform anything at any time and he was definitely on the show to deliver some stand-up comedy. But Jim has earned his ability to sit down at the guest chair and deliver jokes from his act rather than do 5 minutes with a mic on the stage.

    Brett Gelman is the star of the latest [adult swim] TV show Dinner with Friends with Brett Gelman and Friends and a teaser trailer for the show has hit the web.
