'Dad is Fat'
Published on Saturday, September 14, 2013 - 9:38am
What do Hot Pockets, fruit cake, paleness, bacon and parenting all have in common? The answer is Jim Gaffigan. The stand-up comedian best known for his pale skin, love of food, and strange voices has recently come out with a new book about life and parenting, Dad is Fat.
This humorous compilation of essays written by the comedian in his tiny two-bedroom walk-up apartment, while surrounded by his five children, is Mr. Gaffigan at his best. Dad is Fat covers everything from the cult of parenthood to home birthing -- with pizza parties, sleeping, parks -- and of course food -- all thrown into the mix.
Every fan of Mr. Gaffigan, parent, soon-to-be-parent, or anyone related to a parent will find the humor in the trials, tribulations and advice of this fun-loving comedian. His observations and advice will make you laugh out loud and realize he is right. Because honestly, there is no difference between a 4-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor.
