    Jim’s awesome. I’ve seen him several time live and he always kills. I laughed my ass off at the Jim “Hot Pocket” Gaffigan part.

  2. BwanaClyde says:

    Domino’s Pizza bit. Just sayin’

  3. Tillburg says:

    What’s this? A feels-a-gram for me with John Pinette stories? I wasn’t ready for this.

  4. Arabrabbra says:

    i LOVE Jim! I use to kind of not care about clean comics, didnt really get it. Then my 12 year old daughter and I were looking for something to watch and I saw Jims special and I said hey wait a minute! Hes clean! My daughter always hears me talking about comedians but I can never show her much of what it is as I like the durty ones but we watched and enjoyed his special together! She was laughing hysterically. It was really great and I cant believe how close-minded I was on the appeal of clean comedy.

  5. Scott says:

    Jim Gaffigan just kills me. I just watched his McDonald’s bit and couldn’t stop laughing. I can’t wait to get into this interview.

    That being said, I’d like to respectfully point something out to our excellent host.

    It’s “all of a sudden” not “all the sudden”. You, Kevin Smith, and Greg Fitzsimmons all use that phrase incorrectly…and you all get paid for being writers. Meanwhile, I am a mere buffoon sitting out here in the woods.

    I love the Nerdist podcast.

  6. Alexandr says:

    One of the funniest and nicest dudes in comedy. Thanks for getting him on again! I really appreciate the episodes with a stand-up as your guest, it’s always a great time with another funny mind on board!

  7. amysrevenge says:

    Olivia Newton John for you, Belinda Carlisle for me. lol

  8. Dante says:

    Saw Jim in March it was a great show.

  9. Wildride says:

    You always hear about situations where someone books a filthy comic for a gig and tells them to just go ahead and do their act, but then they complain after the fact that it was too filthy. A great skit premise would be someone who books Jim for a gig at like, I don’t know, a Hustler event or something, and then complains that he didn’t work filthy enough.

    Just sayin’.
