Jim Gaffigan The Fixer Upper Tour at Foxwoods
February 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Jim Gaffigan is coming to Foxwoods Resort Casino Feburary 22 – 24 for four shows. Jim Gaffigan is a Grammy nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, two-time New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five. He is known around the world for his unique brand of humor which largely revolves around fatherhood and his observations on life.
Opening wide on 11/22, Gaffigan will be seen in Entertainment Studio’s drama, Chappaquiddick, opposite Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern and Kate Mara. The film follows the story revolving around Senator Ted Kennedy (Clarke) and the tragic car accident that took the life of Mary Jo Kopechne (Mara) in 1968. Gaffigan plays District Attorney Paul Markham, who was on the island of Chappaquiddick during the accident and helped Kennedy with the cover up..
Additionally, he recently wrapped production as the leading man in Cold Iron Pictures’ and Imagine Entertainment’s comedy, You Can Choose Your Family. In the film he plays a seemingly normal father of a loving family whose home life is hilariously turned upside down when his 17-year-old son discovers that his dad has a second family. The film is directed by Miranda Bailey and produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Karen Kehela Sherwood, and Amanda Marshall.
Gaffigan’s other upcoming films include the Bron Studios comedy, Drunk Parent’s (Alec Baldwin, Salma Hayek) and the leading role as the voice of “Peng” in Original Force Animation’s Duck Duck Goose (Carl Reiner, Stephen Fry).
