Publisher's Summary

In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor"). Reminiscent of Bill Cosby’s Fatherhood, Dad is Fat is sharply observed, explosively funny, and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home.

    "Delightful"

    You would expect a book written by comic Jim Gaffigan to be hilarious, and it is. Laugh out loud hilarious. Loved Jim's narration of his own book; he really brings his stories to life. Wonderful!

    "Frustrated Fan"

    Jim Gaffigan has great standup material but his timing is totally off when reading this book. He is clearly out of his element here and the writing seems forced at best. It is painfully repetitive and I elected to return the book less than an hour in. Great comedian, less than stellar book.

    "A must listen for any Dad"

    Some of Jim's best stuff, if you a fan of Gaffigan, this should be a requirement.

    "So funny!"

    If you've heard the standup then much is repeated, but it's so warm, refreshing and funny. Nice to have nice guys in comedy amongst all the darkness

    "Hilarious and very real...too real"

    This book is good for new dads and dads going through the adolescent years. Also for dads who aren't dads yet. I guess everybody.

    "JIM SHARING HIS HILARIOUS FATHERHOOD STORY!"

    I loved this. I admit I was skeptical at first not v
    being a parent myself, but oh my gosh, I was belly laughing. I am sure to listen again since I probably missed some due to my laughter.
