A Night with Jim Gaffigan, hosted by Stephen Colbert
A highlight of the North 2 Shore festival; join the longtime Late Night host Stephen Colbert for this one-off event in conversation with comedian, author, and producer Jim Gaffigan. As one of America's most beloved voices, Gaffigan began his career in New York in 1990. Originally aiming to become an actor, he was dared by a friend to take a stand-up class. The rest, as they say, is history!
As a stand-up comedian, Gaffigan's clever, quiet, and family-friendly style has earned him a rapid rise through the comedy ranks, and he now stands as one of the country's most popular comedians. His eponymous sitcom on TV Land, broadened his appeal still further, to such an extent that he was picked by KFC to replace Norm McDonald as Colonel Sanders in their TV ads. One of only 10 comedians to ever sell out Madison Square Garden, he's a New York Times bestseller and a Grammy nominee, as well as a father of five (phew).
