Dad Is Fat | [Jim Gaffigan]

Dad Is Fat

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").

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.

    "He never disappoints!"

    It was good stuff. Thanks for the laugh! I would suggest reading it if you are ready to start having kids!

    "Jim's the best"

    It's like he's reading my life story. Except being pale, and having five kids ( I only have three). I'm glad Jim did the reading.

    "Funny stories and great voices by Jim."

    This book is filled with funny stories about Jim, his wife and 5 kids. Parents would get a kick out of this book. Yet I'm not a parent and I enjoyed this collection of stories. With Jim reading his audiobook, he was able to impersonate his dad and kids which really added to the stories.

    Story
    "Relatable and fun"

    It was very relatable to me which I enjoyed. I'm a Christian mom of 5 kids. It's all about kids, parenting and family life and it's pretty clean humor. He even jokes about being a "family friendly" comedian.

    "Disappointed"
    Any additional comments?

    The performance started off OK, with a funny piece on going camping with a couple that just had a baby, but then it deteriorated into jokes that would only be humorous to people raising young kids. My wife and I, who are big Jim Gaffigan fans, got bored and stopped listening. However, next time there is a Jim Gaffigan performance we will still give it a chance. Soured on this book, but not Jim Gaffigan.

    "Utterly hysterical"

    The narration made this book for me, Gaffigan's delivery is like listening to hours and hours of his stand up. As someone who came from a mid-western family this book really hit home too. Great for a road trip!

    "Great Book"

    Great book from a great guy. The book is made by the fact that Jim is the narrator.

    "Great listen specially if you have kids"

    The book is based on his kids, wife and the many things only a parent can relate. Very funny and authentic. Highly recommend it.

    "I laughed out loud several times"

    I've seen not so fabulous reviews on this book and I thought this book was quite funny and silly just like Jim's stand up. I'm forcing my husband to listen to it next! So ignore the negative reviews and have a listen if you want something silly to lighten your day.
