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.

    "Just a fun listen"

    Listened while wrapping Christmas presents! It was the perfect distraction to get it done in a snap & have a few laughs at the same time.

    Story
    "3rd time reading this, it's still awesome"

    When the news overwhelms me with negativity and my Buffalo Bills deeply disappoint me, Mr. Gaffigan keeps coming through for me. He reads his own book so his hilarious delivery only adds to this funny material. Do not hesitate, buy this book and read it!

    "freaking hilarious"

    This book is freaking hilarious. Loved every second. He's so real and just tells it like it is. My favorite is when he talks about McDonald's.

    "Ouch. Very painful."

    I kept waiting for it to start to be amusing. That never occurred. Shameful to put so little into a project.

    Story
    "Dad is Fat and Inspired!"
    What did you like most about Dad Is Fat?

    Jim Gaffigan is a real funny comedian and this book is no let down. If you are a parent, you'll thinks it hilarious, if your not a parent you will too! Its one of the funniest things I have read in a long time


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its more of an autobiographical look at Jim, his wife and his 5 kids life in and around there 2 bedroom apartment in New York. This doesn't do this justice as its a real laugh


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    So many cool things, like covering his big screen TV before his wife has their first home birth child, kids birthday parties, play dates, taking kids on holidays and parenting being a cult!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh it made me laugh and laugh. One of those books that, if you are listening with headphones in public, will make you laugh out load and scare people!
