Two Guys Named Jim

Jim Gaffigan

Comedy Dynamics will release Jim Gaffigan: Noble Ape via streamers including iTunes, Amazon, Google and PlayStation.

Noble Ape, Gaffigan’s sixth special, was recorded live at Boston’s Wilbur Theater.  In it, Gaffigan “gets personal as he discusses the medical crisis that hit his wife and family this year, which almost led to his retirement.”

Gaffigan said, “Finding the humor in Jeannie’s brain tumor was not only therapeutic, but I soon realized it resonated with audiences. We’ve all been in those moments of medical crisis and it’s good to laugh about it.”

Four of the comedian’s previous five hour-long stand up specials are on Netflix. They include Jim Gaffigan: King Baby (2009); Jim Gaffigan: Mr. Universe (2012); Jim Gaffigan: Obsessed (2014); and Jim Gaffigan: Cinco (2017). The shows are also available for rent and purchase via Amazon and other streaming providers.

Gaffigan’s first special, Beyond the Pale (2006), is currently available only on disc.
