Jim Gaffigan is a Grammy nominated comedian, New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five.  He recently completed two seasons of his semi-fictitious television show, The Jim Gaffigan Show. The series was lauded by The Los Angeles Times as “Fun and Funny,” and People Magazine as “One of Summer TV’s bright spots.”

In addition to his own television show, widely popular stand-up comedy and best-selling books, Jim has guest starred on many television comedies and dramas, ranging from “Portlandia” to HBO's cult hits “Flight of the Concords” and “Bored to Death” to dramatic roles in all three versions of “Law & Order.”  On the silver screen, his credits include Three Kings, Hot Pursuit, Super Troopers, and 17 Again amongst many others. Taking a dramatic turn, Gaffigan costarred Peter Saragaard and Winona Ryder in Magnolia Picture’s 2015 drama, Experimenter. His latest movie, he will be opposite Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber, Ron Perlman and Elisabeth Moss in the independent film, The Bleeder.

With multiple projects in motion, Gaffigan is currently traveling the world on behalf of his stand-up tour called, The Noble Ape Tour.  He also headlined Madison Square Garden for the first time in December, 2015 becoming one of only ten comics in history to sell out The Garden.  Gaffigan also had the honor of performing in front of Pope Francis and over 1 million festival attendees at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia.  This will be Gaffigan’s first-ever performance at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center on Saturday, April 8.
