Taking his glorification of American laziness to a whole new level, Jim Gaffigan's King Baby tops his 2006 release, Beyond the Pale, a rare platinum-selling comedy album that is referenced here right off "I thought he'd be paler. Least as pale as that CD where he looks like a pedophile". The track "Inside Voice" is named after the comedian's signature falsetto alter-ego voice, a device that's used sparingly and purposefully here, completely taking the "it's a crutch" argument off the table. With less of it, there are fewer cheap laughs, allowing Gaffigan to build momentum as he heralds bowling "The activity you do after you've done everything else", hammocks "nets for ...

Least as pale as that CD where he looks like a pedophile". The track "Inside Voice" is named after the comedian's signature falsetto alter-ego voice, a device that's used sparingly and purposefully here, completely taking the "it's a crutch" argument off the table. With less of it, there are fewer cheap laughs, allowing Gaffigan to build momentum as he heralds bowling "The activity you do after you've done everything else", hammocks "nets for catching lazy people", and Waffle House "I love Waffle House, and not just because watching someone fry an egg while they're smoking reminds me of my dad". The bit on bologna and it's spelling vs. pronunciation -- decided by the man responsible for "colonel" -- is especially funny, but it's the epic riffing on bacon that becomes the set's centerpiece and somewhat of a sequel to Beyond the Pale's big comedy hit "Hot Pockets." There are a few Jesus jokes and such that might not fly with some, but this is otherwise a family-friendly effort with no profanity. It's also Gaffigan in top form, remaining laugh-out-loud funny the whole way through.

    Very Funny Effort from Gaffigan

    This is the second album I've heard of Jim Gaffigan's. Compared to Beyond the Pale it isn't as funny as that one, but it's still very hilarious. Some of the topics he covers on the album are ones very similar to topics on Beyond the Pale, but they're very expanded. Something funny I should point out about this album is that the Bacon routine on the album is kind of like the Hot Pockets routine on Beyond the Pale execpt this time he talks about how much he loves the food! One thing that I was very happy about with this album in particular is how he performed his religious material. If you read my review for Beyond the Pale you probably read about the fact I felt he didn't realize that his religious material would come across as offensive to some people. I think he finally realized it and was able to make his religious material very clean for this album. I totally recommend you get this. You'll be laughing for hours!

    Hillarious

    Once again Jim Gaffigan is hillarious....Where has this guy been hiding. This is a great listen for the car ride. So many crack me up moments. I've given this act as a gift several times...Nice to hear a relatively CLEAN act as well.
