Jim Gaffigan is Coming To LA and He's Bringing Sexy Back
LAist got to interview bacon-loving funnyman Jim Gaffigan back in November when he orbited close to LA, near Indio or a place of some such ilk.
He heard us complain to him that he somehow managed to avoid the megalopolis known as Los Angeles. In reaction to our objective suggestions he's just announced a major US tour where he'll be refining material for a Comedy Central special to be recorded at the end of the year.
We'll have a chance to see him when his act will be at its peak - why are we telling you now about his November 8th show at the Wiltern? Because it will definitely sell out long before then. Tickets go on sale today and you can get them HERE.
