Jim Gaffigan is one of the most popular comedians in the country today. As a stand-up, Gaffigan's clever, quiet style has earned him an unprecedented number of appearances on both CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" and NBC's "Late Night With Conan O'Brien." His stand-up special "Beyond the Pale" DVD was released earlier this year and went Gold within the first six months.

After Gaffigan's first appearance on "Letterman," the host personally chose him to develop a sitcom for World Wide Pants. Eighteen months later, "Welcome To New York" debuted on CBS to critical acclaim. He then co-starred with Ellen DeGeneres on her CBS sitcom "The Ellen Show." For two years, he had recurring roles on FOX's "That 70's Show" and NBC's "Ed." Gaffigan has also had roles on "Sex and the City," "Third Watch," "Law & Order," among others. Currently, he can be seen in TBS' first original scripted comedy series "My Boys."
