The man, who has become one of the world's best-loved comedians through a combination of jokes about his family, his weight and Hot Pockets, is coming to Buffalo.
Jim Gaffigan announced on his website this morning that he will play First Niagara Center July 19. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 26 for $59.75 and $49.75. They can be purchased at the First Niagara Center Box Office, online at www.tickets.com, or by calling (888) 223-6000.
Gaffigan has become a phenomenon since he played in 2011 at UB Center for the Arts. He has authored two books, "Dad is Fat" and "Food: A Love Story," and starred in a TV show loosely based on his life called appropriately enough - "The Jim Gaffigan Show" on TV Land.
