LAS VEGAS (Dec. 13, 2016) – Actor, writer, producer, Grammy-nominated comedian, New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer and multi-platinum selling father of five Jim Gaffigan has packed up the tour bus and hit the road with his family for his live “Fully Dressed” arena and theatre tour. The tour will make a much anticipated two-night stop at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7. Tickets for both performances go on sale this Friday, Dec. 16 at 10 a.m. PT.
Jim Gaffigan is a Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five. Gaffigan is known around the world for his unique brand of humor which largely revolves around fatherhood and his observations on life and food. With multiple projects in motion, Gaffigan is currently on his Fully Dressed arena and theater stand-up comedy tour, with dates through the end of the year.
In a dramatic turn, Jim will next be seen in IFC Films/Showtime’s, The Bleeder, opposite Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Ron Perlman and Elisabeth Moss. The sports drama follows the true story of boxing champ Chuck Wepner (Schreiber) who in 1975 went 15 rounds in the heavyweight world championship against Muhammad Ali.
On the small screen, Gaffigan and his wife, Jeannie recently ended their critically acclaimed semi-fictitious television show, The Jim Gaffigan Show, after two seasons on TV Land. The series, lauded by The Los Angeles Times as “Fun and Funny,” and People Magazine as “One of Summer TV’s bright spots,” was written by Gaffigan and Jeannie who both also served as executive producers and showrunners.
Gaffigan’s fourth special (Beyond the Pale -2006, King Baby -2009, Mr. Universe -2012), Obsessed premiered on Comedy Central in 2014 and the DVD/CD was released soon after by Comedy Central Records. Obsessed premiered at #1 on iTunes which marked the fifth time Gaffigan reached the Top 25 Comedy category on iTunes. The album also earned a nomination for ‘Best Comedy Album of the Year’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
In 2013, Jim’s first book, Dad Is Fat, was released by Crown Publishing and debuted at #5 on The New York Times Bestsellers List. His second book, Food: A Love Story, was released in the fall of 2014 and debuted at #3 on The New York Times Bestsellers List.
