Author Biography
Gaffigan, Jim (Author)

James Christopher "Jim" Gaffigan was born July 7, 1966 in Indiana. He graduated from Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business in 1988 and became a stand-up comedian. Gaffigan is also known for routines or skits relating to being lazy and eating food, especially popular routines regarding Hot Pockets, cake, and bacon. In 2004 Gaffigan's stand up material was featured in Comedy Central's animated series Shorties Watchin' Shorties. His 2006 album, Beyond the Pale, consisted primarily of material regarding food and American eating habits. The album was accompanied by an hour-long special on Comedy Central of the same name, which was released on DVD. His 2009 album, King Baby, was also a television special filmed in Austin, Texas at the end of his "The Sexy Tour". Gaffigan produced a series of animated shorts for Late Night with Conan O'Brien, titled Pale Force, in which the animated Gaffigan and O'Brien are superheroes who fight crime with their extremely pale skin.

He made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013 with his title Dad is Fat and in 2014 with Food: A Love Story.
