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.

    "So good"

    I'm actually sad this book is over. Such a great listen! Hilarious for any parent and spot on in so many ways.

    "Weird to rate Gaffigan as "Meh""

    Good enough book but if you are a fan of Gaffigan, then he will use core material from time to time. And when he does, it lacks the polish of his act as he honed it on and for stage and not for an audiobook. It's almost disturbing to hear some of his better jokes told so flatly. So if not somebody who has listened to his act over and over, then highly suggested. But if a big fan like me, read it as you will put the jokes in his stage voice.

    Overall, like his stories and filling I the gaps of his life that I know some of, from act, is great. But I wish I had read rather than listened (and this is often true with comedian books for me)

    "I laughed out Loud!"

    I liked it so much and it was over way too quick. Parents of young children will find themselves noding their heads as the story goes on.

    "Great book"

    I loved it. If you like his stand up you will like his book even though some of the same jokes are in it.

    "Still Laughing"

    The Gaffigans are the new Carlins! Easy to relate to, and you find yourself agreeing with everything. Can't wait for more.

    "Hilarious"

    Quite funny from the start. You really begin to understand how much he loves his family while making fun of all the crazy things that kids do.

    "Great book"

    Jim Gaffigan writes and reads a great story. If you have kids you will love this. I listened to this and his other book while driving to Florida. Thanks Jim you saved my sanity on 19 hour car ride.

    "Hysterical"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dad Is Fat to be better than the print version?

    I laughed out loud, it was like listening to his stand up on my ride to and from work.
