Jim Gaffigan is currently on "The Sexy Tour" leading up to the taping of his next Comedy Central special in Austin in early December. Before that, however, he has shows in San Francisco and at the Wiltern in Los Angeles next weekend, Nov 7 & 8. In November he's doing 12 shows in a span of 11 days in Boston and New York (check Jim's Tour Schedule for details).
Almost two years ago, Jim met with isoS/Matt for an episode of AST Radio that covered his Midwestern upbringing, his formative years in standup and the benefits and difficulties of being part of such a rich, burgeoning comedy scene in early-'90s New York City. Earlier this week, I spoke with Jim on the phone to further examine his comedic process, his unrelenting performance schedule, making the leap from comedy clubs to performing in theaters and much more.
