...but I don't, so it just seemed like a long list of all the reasons why I don't. And an homage to his wife, who is apparently perfect. There were a few lines that made me smile (not so much laugh out loud though), but overall I expected something funnier from Gaffigan as I'm a big fan of his comedy.
OK, I will admit - I love Jim Gaffigan and have seen him in concert. There are parts of this book that are just laugh out loud funny - and I don't even have kids. A great, light listen.
Parents of young (and multiple) kids who are not yet familiar with Jim and want to relate in a comedic, raw, and honest way parentally. My kids are older now so I fell asleep to this book in spite of loving Jim already.
Jim, I love you still and appreciate your place in life. I'm just not there now and needed more humor outside of your specific place, though I can imagine I'll have to wait a while as you are being demandingly blessed by constant spousal fertility. ;-)
If you have kids and you like Jim Gaffigan you will love this book! Honestly this is EXACTLY how I feel about parenthood. I'm glad I got the audible (then I can listen to it while folding clothes, doing dishes, cleaning the cat box, and making kids lunches for the next day (not in that order. Probably.) But I will be listening to it again. And it is definitely worth it!

Jim Gaffigan writes a hilarious self-depreciating book made even better by narrating it himself.
All Jim Gaffigan's books are funny.
Jim Gaffigan tells great stories. Very enjoyable to listen to on my road trip with my husband. He was consistent on delivering jokes to make you laugh throughout. Highly recommend this audio book. There are jokes for everyone.
Jim Gaffigan is an extremely talented and hilarious comedian, and him reading it really brings it up. Dad is Fat is already funny, but when Gaffigan reads it, it's even better. Of you liked thinks like Bossypants or Yes Please or any kind of comedy, you'll love this!
