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.

    "Very Funny"

    If you love Gaffigan, are a parent and need something to pass the time. .then get this book! With Gaffigan narrating it was like listening to his stand up but it's all about the kids and his struggles about being a father. I've heard some of this stuff before on his other standups but some of the material was new. You wont be disappointed!

    "Great book! Hilarious as well as insightful"

    A must for all fans of Jim Gaffigan, kids, honest parenting, and awkwardness of life. Wonderfully written and we'll told: it made a drive across the country to South Dakota bearable...almost...

    "Hilarious!"

    I laughed from start to finish listening to this book! I have recommended it to several friends but I do think listening to it is probably a better experience than reading it because of the way that Jim's delivery is, hilarious! As a parent to two little kids under five years old I found his stories so incredibly relatable and laughed so much! I breezed through this book in less than a week and even though it's a short book that's still saying something because like I said, I have two little kids and I never have time for anything which means I really, really enjoyed this book and I think you will too!

    "funny material. Dull delivery"

    This guy delivers the whole book in a monotone. ugh. The material itself was funny. would have been better if spoken with more energy than Ben Stein frozen in carbonite.

    "okay?"

    I love the comedian. Not so much the book. Made me think of a soap box. I was hoping for a good skit with funny personal stories. what I got was people bashing. Am trying now to remove this title from my device but I can't.... so maybe if I write a review like they're harassing me to do, we'll see.

    "Very funny and clean"

    Jim is very funny, but clean. It was fun to listen to and it brought back memories of both my father and my children.

    "Clean (mostly) and funny"

    As a mother of 4 kids, I can relate. He really only discusses real life scenarios, but he finds the humor in them all.
