As a stand-up comedian, Gaffigans clever, quiet style has earned him an unprecedented number of appearances on both CBSs Late Show with David Letterman and NBCs Late Night with Conan O'Brien. His recent one hour Comedy Central special entitled Beyond the Pale has made Gaffigan one of the most popular touring and recorded comedians in the country today.
On film, Jim has endeared himself to audiences by taking on vivid supporting characters in a number of genres. In the cult hit "Super Troopers," Gaffigan famously helped add "meow" to the lexicon of Vermont state troopers. Jim's quiet dramatic turn in "The Great New Wonderful," a meditation on the aftermath of 9/11, took audiences and critics by surprise as he embodied an office worker broken by tragedy who ultimately explodes in rage.
