For this week’s Tuesday Stand Up, we find our selves coming back to Netflix for what should be an amazing Netflix stand up special because of the featured performer. I mean lets admit it, Netflix has been on their a game for a while now. Whether you love his jokes about Hot Pockets, Donuts, or you loved his TV Land series The Jim Gaffigan Show, you have to admit that you love comedian Jim Gaffigan. Well, Jim returned to the Palace Theater in Columbus, Ohio for his fifth conveniently titled Netflix original stand up special Jim Gaffigan-Cinco. In Cinco, Jim tackles all sorts of interesting topics like being fat and loving it, Summer vs Winter, Siberia, Wisconsin, Getting tricked to move to the midwest, spring vs fall, Mary Had A Little Lamb, vacationing in Western Mass, hiking, SUV’s vs Trucks, TV Shows, Netflix, Cable, Flip Phones, morning people, okay costumes vs not ok costumes, Airport security, the fair, elevators, and so much more hilarious topics that is sure to make you laugh.
If you have never seen a Jim Gaffigan stand up special, then you definitely do not know what you are missing out on. The man is a genius in the world of comedy because not only are the topics funny, but the way he delivers them is phenomenal. The delivery and the reasoning he gives you behind his jokes is what catches your attention from the start. He is truly an amazing storyteller which is kind of an important thing about a stand up comedian in my opinion. I mean for example, he talks about foliage which may seem like a borign subject, but the delivery of the punch line in, “hey kids want to jump in the pile of dead leaves? No, I’ll just light them on fire” is what makes you laugh. The tandem he goes on about there being too many TV shows and how it’s like being in relationships is freakin hilarious cause it’s true. I know during the special, he says that this is his fifth special for five kids that he has so hopefully this is the last, but I hope for sure that there will definitely be more from Jim Gaffigan. I haven’t laughed this hard at a special in a very long time and I thank Jim for that. That is why I am going to give the special an A+ for a final grade.
