    A mostly family friendly comedy classic that will keep your kids laughing on a long drive!

    My kids first listened to this in the car when we were on a long drive, and it became, for them, an instant classic. Hot Pockets - my goodness! Who ever knew they were so funny? And Steak-umms? Hilarious. The kids have almost this entire comedy routine memorized, and don't hesitate to perform it for whoever will listen. Jim Gaffigan's live shows are equally entertaining, and if he is ever in your area, you should definitely check him out. And make sure your frig is well stocked with bacon...you're going to want some! :-)
