Jim Gaffigan's The Fixer Upper Tour Comes to The Colosseum At Caesars Palace
Jim Gaffigan, three-time Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer and best-selling author, announced today that he will return to Las Vegas to perform two nights at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace as part of The Fixer Upper tour. Gaffigan is scheduled to perform Sunday, May 27 and Friday, July 20, 2018. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, Dec. 8 at noon PT. Both dates are presented jointly by AEG Presents and Caesars Entertainment.
Gaffigan, who is one of the world's highest grossing stand-up comedians, is currently on his Noble Ape international arena and theater comedy tour, with dates in China, Japan, England, Canada, Paris, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, etc. This past January, he premiered his fifth one-hour stand up special, Cinco, on Netflix, who also purchased the exclusive rights to Gaffigan's four other stand-up specials in an unprecedented deal. The album version of Cinco, Gaffigan's fifth album, became available on June 13 and during that week, Gaffigan had six albums in the top 10 comedy albums list on iTunes. Cinco garnered impressive reviews, with A.V. Club calling Jim, "One of our most intelligent observational humorists."
Gaffigan's other upcoming films include the Bron Studios comedy, Drunk Parents (Alec Baldwin, Salma Hayek) and the leading role as the voice of "Peng" in Original Force Animation's Duck Duck Goose (Carl Reiner, Stephen Fry). Additionally, he recently wrapped production as the leading man in Cold Iron Pictures' and Imagine Entertainment's comedy, You Can Choose Your Family. The film is directed by Miranda Bailey and produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Karen Kehela Sherwood, and Amanda Marshall. Coming in April 2018, Gaffigan takes a dramatic turn in Entertainment Studio's, Chappaquiddick, opposite Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern and Kate Mara. The film follows the story revolving around Senator Ted Kennedy (Clarke) and the tragic car accident that took the life of Mary Jo Kopechne (Mara) in 1968.
Last year Gaffigan and his wife, Jeannie, 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 Jim and Jeannie who both also served as executive producers and showrunners. The single-camera comedy co-starred Ashley Williams, Michael Ian Black, and Adam Goldberg and revolved around one man's struggle to balance fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite.
