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.

    "Entertaining enough."

    Just needed a break from all the serious pregnancy and childbirth books that I'm cramming in my mind. It wasn't amazing but it was entertaining enough. I giggled a bit throughout but it wasn't laugh out loud. I am glad that Jim Gaffigan actually narrated it.

    "love jim!"

    Jims stand up and book have been a life saver during long road trips. the comedy keeps my husband and I laughing instead of sleeping. I love that I can listen with my kids in the room.

    "Awesome"
    What made the experience of listening to Dad Is Fat the most enjoyable?

    Jim's voice is amazing, stories hilarious


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narration and fun in daily mundane lives


    Have you listened to any of Jim Gaffigan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Food a love story is boring :((( this is way better than that one.

    Story
    "Why did I download this?"

    While this might be enjoyable for those who love everything about kids, this is just not for me. The entire thing (or at least as much as I could handle) is just anecdotes about his hoard of kids and complaining about living in New York with such a sizeable brood. Couldn't even get half way through. Listen to a book that showcases the general apathetic behaviour of parents ("Of course they're loud, they're kids!")? No-freaking-thank you.

    "So funny!"

    Jim Gaffigan narrates perfectly. I am telling every dad I know to get this book. The stories are well paced with just enough edgy and cuteness combined.

    "One hilarious yet necessary perspective"

    I love this book. He not only has such a hilariously sarcastic perspective on family improvement, his perspective is very necessary for people to understand.
    It makes me feel that although I have weaknesses, I can still have a good family.
