Laugh Your Heart Out

Gexa Energy Pavilion. Grammy-nominated comedian, New York Times best-selling author, top-touring performer, actor and producer, and one of the funniest dads around, Jim Gaffigan, is kicking off his latest comedy tour, “Fully Dressed,” in Dallas this month. Known for his self-deprecating wit on the subjects of food, fatherhood and laziness, Gaffigan is packing up the tour bus and hitting the road with his family for an extensive 30-city tour. “I’m so thrilled to be eating my way across America again… Oh, wait, I’m doing shows too?” he joked. Considering that he’s now KFC’s new Colonel Sanders, which was revealed during Super Bowl 50, we’re guessing he’s probably pretty set up for some all-you-can-eat fried chicken.


There’s no doubt that 2015 was a monumental year for Gaffigan; he became one of only 10 comedians in history to sell out the famed Madison Square Garden arena on the final date of his “Contagious” tour. Gaffigan also opened up for Pope Francis in front of more than one million people at an event in Philadelphia. He even has his own television series, “The Jim Gaffigan Show.” The TV Land program, which is inspired by his life, debuted with enormous ratings. Watch for the second season this summer. If you’re ready for some good times, lighthearted fun and comedy that you just might relate to, don’t miss your chance to catch Gaffigan when he comes to North Texas. His quick wit and impeccable comedic timing will tickle your funny bone. Who’s ready for some laughs?
