    That is why I watch you is because you are “clean”. Cursing are just filler words for people who have nothing better to say. I have recommended you to many people because you are the alternative to all the filth out there.

    Parenting is unsexy when you are very young and not a parent. But when you are 35 or older, childless women of that age are actually somehow not so sexy, at least for a married man.

    There is something incredibly positively American about Jim Gaffigan. He is a comic who subverts, not only everyday life, but the world of stand-up comedy itself. Gaffigan is clean. Like a clearly played arpeggio on an acoustic guitar.

    Well no one made them have 5 kids. They could have had the snip for him after 2 or 3 children. NY is expensive, 5 kids plus 2 adults in a 2 bedroom apartment makes it obvious you struggle to afford them. Having the snip isn't wrong and saves a lot of struggling with not enough money to afford 5 kids.

  48. Lucky Smith

    I really like him. He's always funny yet doesn't have jokes about the typical things that comics talk about like trashing women or bitching about their wife or girlfriend or mocking any specific stereotype. The best kind of comics are the ones that make jokes about stuff that most people can relate to yet never have to put anyone else down to get a laugh.

And I hope he knows that he is one of those comedians who "happens to be clean" instead of a "clean comedian" I didn't even notice until I was putting together a comedy playlist to play in the car for the preteens I nanny/cart around during the summer...Oh yeah, Jim Gaffigan doesn't swear...huh....

    I would pay to see Jim at any moment of the year. He is clever, funny as heck and he has his own voice and style. I'm so sick of all these unfunny so called comics with their edgy racial jokes, anti anything good jokes. They will never have Jim's success with their tired, stolen and restructure material. Jim is the most successful comic for a reason, he actually has talent.

Nope, not weird, it's inspiring and loving. Look how little his kids are and they are so well behaved. It's because he keeps them close and tight to him.............. Rock on.

    I really like this guy....both his humor and his humanity. He says things that make me burst out in laughter. He does not find it necessary to lace his routines with F-words, C-words, etc. I could take children and my grandmother to one of his performances and everyone would laugh. Comparing him to Bill Cosby and Bob Newhart is spot on. I wish him and his family nothing but success and happiness.

    I loved this guy's standup. It's a unique experience these days to be able to laugh your ass off with your whole family and not feel awkward because of inappropriate comedic material that seems to be a given and not an exception for any comic that is worth watching. Now that I know a little bit more about him and his family, I find him inspirational and I'm proud to be a fan. Jim, keep up the good work and god bless!

    +Rob R. actually, I got my start on Comedy Central. Check out the stand-up I posted a couple of days ago and I give the story on that. It was after I shot a video for Tosh.0 that I thought maybe I should do stand-up. So I watched every comedy special on Netflix, wrote out my own hour long special, then started doing open mics. So I kind of went about it backwards. But the reality is that making highly opinionated videos on MReporter got me to open up. Before than I was pretty afraid to talk even to friends.

Tell em no, I think it is increasing it, BOZO. There are more decent hardworking Americans who don't want to hear scum bags rattle their stupid mouths spewing out garbage than you can possibly imagine.

    I love that you are "clean" Jim! I don't like hearing the f bomb every sentence. Why are people so crude and foul these days. It is only in the last few decades that comedians felt that they must cuss like sailors to be funny. Why? What demographic are they trying to appeal to? It is rather juvenile and has no class. Please, please, please never change! You are so funny without that crutch. You are funnier than the f bomb droppers who pander to the lowest common denominator. You don't have to be a scum bucket to be funny. My kids love you too. That's really awesome in a day when they can't watch most comedians because they are such scum buckets.

    +Hypercube1729 If you are so concerned with an overpopulated world you are welcome to start reversing the process by offing yourself. That really makes as much sense as you so vehemently proselytizing against people who are capable of supporting their own family with out handouts paid for by money forcibly removed from others. You should be taking a stand against all the children born to people who may not know who the father is, can not support their children and don't even consider the consequences of their actions because they get free assistance from others.

    Hypercube17293 years ago

    +LaserVault You said: "I believe God is real, he is a loving, caring Father, and that I know that Jesus Christ was His Son and the Savior of the World, not just some friendly political carpenter." This is false. There is no proof for that statement. What you stated about religion and science is also false. This is NOT an equally sided discussion. One side (me, science) can back up out statements and arguments by EVIDENCE! We have PROOF for what we claim. Religion has NO proof at all, not only that, but science can EASILY DISPROVE many, if not ALL of the statements in the old testament. Noah's Ark = not possible. Tower of Babel = not the languages came to be. And so on and on. If you still choose to believe silly stories that were clearly written by humans with NO scientific knowledge, it's your business and you should seek psychiatric help. Why you despite all the proof that can easily refute statements that are in the old testament still believe in a 'god' is a matter for psychologists. Also, Jesus is only interesting, if you can prove he is 'god's son', which is oimpossible all the time there is no god, or any proof of god. Science NOT knowing some stuff IS NOT a proof of 'god'. Science not being able to (yet) give an answer to some phenomenon DOES NOT give a green light for some other random rediculous statement like 'god did it'. That stements requires same amount of proof as any other statement. It's all logic.

  119. LaserVault

    LaserVault3 years ago

    +Hypercube1729 I'm not sure if I can adequately articulate why I am bothering to continue this conversation--even to myself--but I have a genuine desire that before we part ways you should understand me and I understand you. I am not going to argue the merits of scripture with you, mostly because you don't hold any value to any of them, obviously, but also because I don't think I could get even those people on this board who were as religious as I was to agree with me as to what degree of today's scriptures were filled with true history, what were filled with elaborate--yet meaningful--stories, and which was which. It is sufficient for me to say, though, that I believe God is real, he is a loving, caring Father, and that I know that Jesus Christ was His Son and the Savior of the World, not just some friendly political carpenter. Now then, I ask you to consider the idea that you and I don't know everything. That all either one of can ever know is what we have experienced. And that our experiences can be trusted. I also ask you to consider the possibility that the same is generally true for every other person on the planet. If that is the case, then there is no harm in studying for yourself the personal experiences of the people around you--including the prophets and apostles in the Bible (or any religious text, for that matter)--and deciding for yourself how those experiences match up with your own. Take the good, cast away the bad, and you will find you are better for it. Really, it is as simple as the scientific method. Science, true science, does not hurt religion. Any more than true religion will contradict science. Color either one of them with an agenda, and, like water with ink in it, you will get something distasteful, but both in their pure forms only serve to help a person understand the world and their place in it. It comes down to my own little equation (patent pending) :) Religion = "This is What God Did." (A Constant) Science = "This is How We Think He Did It." (A Variable.) None of what I say here is meant as me screaming "you're wrong!" in your face. I hope this shows you my side of things. Have I heard all of your side or was there more you wanted to say?
