    Jim Gaffigan is a regular on the late-night talk show circuit and an in-demand actor. Gaffigan's talent was recognized, and soon he was making appearances on The Ellen Show, Ed, Law and Order, Sex and the City, and That '70s Show. During this time, he released four CDs of his stand-up on his own label and worked in films, with small roles in Three Kings, Road Trip, and Igby Goes Down. Recorded live in August 2004 at Giggles Comedy Club in Seattle.

    Overall

    Gaffigan is absolutely hilarious! His Hot pocket thing will bring you to your knees! He does this thing where he whispers what an offended person in the audience might say and at first you kinda wonder what the heck he's doing, but in the end you'll be rolling! For the most part it's pretty clean, too.

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    Story
    What would have made Alas, Babylon better?

    The book would have been better if the author was not stuck in the 1950's in regards to his opinion of women.


    What could Pat Frank have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Really, a woman who, in the wake of an atomic attack that has devastated her community, her state, and her nation, CRIES because her goldfish is dead and her cat has let her down ?? This author has zero understanding of the character and strength of women.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, I liked it at first. I thought the main character, Randy, was quite likable. But the author's obviously patronizing attitude toward women was a complete turn-off.
