February 27, 2017 – Grammy-nominated comedian and New York Times best-selling author Jim Gaffigan will perform at Charlotte’s Spectrum Center on Friday, November 10. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, March 3, at 10 a.m. at spectrumcentercharlotte.com and ticketmaster.com, the Spectrum Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 800-745-3000.

A top touring performer and multi-platinum-selling father of five, Gaffigan recently wrapped the first season of his semi-fictitious television show, The Jim Gaffigan Show, which TV Land picked up for a second season and premieres this summer. The series, lauded by the Los Angeles Times as “Fun and Funny,” and People Magazine as “One of Summer TV’s bright spots,” was developed by Peter Tolan along with Gaffigan and his wife, Jeannie, who both also serve as executive producers and showrunners. The single-camera comedy co-stars Ashley Williams, Michael Ian Black, and Adam Goldberg and revolves around one man’s struggle to balance fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite.

With multiple projects in motion, Gaffigan is currently traveling the world on behalf of his stand-up tour, Contagious, and headlined Madison Square Garden for the first time in December, becoming one of only ten comics in history to sell out The Garden. Last fall, Gaffigan had the honor of performing in front of Pope Francis and over 1 million festival attendees at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia.

Gaffigan’s fourth special (Beyond the Pale -2006, King Baby -2009, Mr. Universe -2012), Obsessed premiered on Comedy Central in 2014 and the DVD/CD was released soon after by Comedy Central Records.  Obsessed premiered at No. 1 on iTunes, which marked the fifth time Gaffigan reached the Top 25 Comedy category on iTunes. The album also earned a nomination for Best Comedy Album of the Year at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

In 2013, Jim’s first book, Dad Is Fat, was released by Crown Publishing and debuted at No. 5 on the New York Times Bestseller’s List and remained on the list for 17 weeks.  His second book, Food: A Love Story, was released in the fall of 2014 and debuted at No. 3 on the New York Times Bestseller’s List.

In addition to his own television show, widely popular stand-up comedy and best-selling books, Jim has guest starred on many television comedies and dramas, ranging from “Portlandia” to HBO’s cult hits “Flight of the Concords” and “Bored to Death” to dramatic roles in all three versions of “Law & Order.”  On the silver screen, his credits include Three Kings, Hot Pursuit, Super Troopers, and 17 Again amongst many others. Taking a dramatic turn, Gaffigan costarred Peter Saragaard and Winona Ryder in Magnolia Picture’s 2015 drama, Experimenter, and will next be seen opposite Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber, Ron Perlman and Elisabeth Moss in the independent film, The Bleeder.
