Album Review

Taking his glorification of American laziness to a whole new level, Jim Gaffigan's King Baby tops his 2006 release, Beyond the Pale, a rare platinum-selling comedy album that is referenced here right off ("I thought he'd be paler. Least as pale as that CD where he looks like a pedophile"). The track "Inside Voice" is named after the comedian's signature falsetto alter-ego voice, a device that's used sparingly and purposefully here, completely taking the "it's a crutch" argument off the table. With less of it, there are fewer cheap laughs, allowing Gaffigan to build momentum as he heralds bowling ("The activity you do after you've done everything else"), hammocks ("nets for catching lazy people"), and Waffle House ("I love Waffle House, and not just because watching someone fry an egg while they're smoking reminds me of my dad"). The bit on bologna and it's spelling vs. pronunciation — decided by the man responsible for "colonel" — is especially funny, but it's the epic riffing on bacon that becomes the set's centerpiece and somewhat of a sequel to Beyond the Pale's big comedy hit "Hot Pockets." There are a few Jesus jokes and such that might not fly with some, but this is otherwise a family-friendly effort with no profanity. It's also Gaffigan in top form, remaining laugh-out-loud funny the whole way through.

the funniest comedian alive...pick up King Baby and Beyond the Pale

Unbelievably funny. He has a perfect delivery of a punchline. His voice inflections are seriously the funniest thing I've hear. He is the most underrated comedian alive. I bought the CD but I also saw the stand up on Comedy Central and I literally had to plug my ears because I couldn't stop laughing without hurting my lungs and throat. He's very clean so you don't have to worry about dirty jokes, showing that a true comedic genius doesn't have to resort to worthless lowbrow jokes to make a point. His observations are hysterical and you'll find yourself in complete agreement.

Way better than Dane Cook! The best comedian out there right now.

Jim Gaffigan's comedy is so stupid but very hilarious. I love when he just talks about food, because you would think that when a comedian talks about food, it wouldn't be funny, Jim Gaffigan makes it funny. Hilarious content.

Don't pee your pants...

...when you listen to this album. His observations on subjects like bowling and camping are right on the money. His delivery is uniquely deadpan. My only complaint is that there wasn't more bits on the Hot Pocket. And Mr. Gaffigan, we absolutely loved you in Capote.
