Jim Gaffigan: Beyond the Pale

Comedian Jim Gaffigan has been blowing up all over. Last night we saw hi at a Packed House at the Providence Performing Arts Center. The crowd was mostly hear the one set of jokes tat Jim Does about Hot Pockets brand food. Jim is pretty talented and we enjoy seeing his act on Comedy Central. It seems that this year Jim’s Following has grown by leaps and bounds. I remember watching him on Comedy Central before he got hugely popular. His latest DVD Beyond the Pale is on Amazon.com.

The Jerk

I think that this movie is one of the best that Steve Martin ever starred in. Some other great ones were Roxanne, Parenthood, Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Father of the Bride. Steve Martin is a wonderfully funny and charming actor and his movies almost always make me smile. I was lucky enough to catch The Jerk on Comedy Central today while I took a break from working on book relocation taking place in our house. I just love how ridiculous the movie is. While the guy tries to kill Navin with the high powered gun Navin is freaking out because he thinks the guy is after the cans, “He hates these cans!” So classic.
