90% NEW, FUNNY, FRESH; 10% REHASH
Saw his 7:00pm show @ Chicago Theater 10/14/17. 90% funny, fresh! Last 10%, was verbatim rehash of "Beyond The Pale" material with just a smidge of supporting material thrown in. Good show; not great show.

GREAT FIRST HALF,... SECOND...GOOD
Very impressed with his first half where he didn’t limit himself to make a few “poutine” jokes to make himself relatable to his local audience, but a complete array of well researched jokes around the canadian culture from coast to coast. Hilarious! He did seem “out of it” at the very end when he finished with a sightly different “hot poket” routine before rushing off stage.

I’m a big Jim Gaffigan fan. Unfortunately, the show was very brief and somewhat stale, especially for the $100 price tag with all the fees and his wife’s book. Which he hardly mentioned. Since he has ties with Milwaukee, it would’ve been nice to have a little more personal touch. Nothing exceptional. The whole show was an hour and a half with the opener.

NOT SO FAMILY-FRIENDLY
Jim has always prided himself on clean comedy. He did say something about the P word which was not necessary. Also if he’s clean, the his warm up should be also he was pretty vulgar about Viagra and it’s a fax. I saw many families with their young teenagers in tow and don’t think this warm up comic was appropriate.Also Jim looked very tired worn out and like to get up too late the night before. I do love him and he is funny but was not thrilled with this concert

My husband and I have watched all of Jim Gaffigan's specials and found them hilarious. We saw the second show of back to back performances and were fairly disappointed. Jim seemed tired and unenthusiastic. At times he almost seemed to slur slightly. Perhaps we caught him on an off night, but I honestly expected a more polished presentation.

WAS JIM DRUNK?
I really enjoy Jim and all of his work. I’ve watched probably over 20 hours of his comedy and it was exciting to see him try out all new material for us. What concerned me was the sloppiness that he displayed on stage. I’ve been known to put back a couple beers but he really seemed like he was drunk and that it affected his performance. To be honest he seems like such a nice guy and my disappointment in the performance is overshadowed by my concern for him personally. I hope he’s doing OK. In summary, my wife and daughter and I were rather disappointed in the overall performance because rod this

The show was only one hour long and very disappointing. We have watched all of Jim's specials on television and think he is hilarious! Friday night in Detroit at The Fox, his performance was terrible! We were so disappointed! He talked about murder and death way too much and everything else he talked about was only marginally funny. There were only a couple of times we actually laughed out loud.
