2017 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for Gaffigan, who will be seen in six feature films this year, including two dramas with IFC Films/Showtime’s The Bleeder (Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts) and Apex Entertainment’s Chappaquiddick (Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern, Kate Mara). He will also co-star in Bron Studio’s comedy Drunk Parents (Alex Baldwin, Salma Hayek), Weinstein’s animated comedy, The Guardian Brothers (Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Ed Norton), and will play the lead in Original Force Animation’s Duck Duck Goose (Carl Reiner and Stephen Fry) as well as Cold Iron Picture’s comedy, You Can Choose Your Family. Earlier this year, Gaffigan debuted his fifth stand up special on Netflix with Cinco. Netflix also acquired the rights to Gaffigan’s previous four specials in an unprecedented deal.

In 2015, Jim became one of only ten comedians in history to sell out the famed Madison Square Garden arena for the finale of his Contagious tour and he opened for Pope Francis in front of one million+ people in Philadelphia, during the Pope’s visit to the US. In 2016, Gaffigan was named one of the world’s highest grossing comedians by Forbes, and streaming site Pandora announced Gaffigan as their most popular comic with over 647 million spins to date.
