Spend Some Quality Time With Jim Gaffigan’s New Special Next Month

Earlier this year it was announced that Amazon was getting into the stand-up business by adding its first-ever special from Jim Gaffigan, and now it has a premiere date and a trailer. Titled Jim Gaffigan: Quality Time, the special was taped during the comedian’s performance at the State Theatre in Minneapolis back in March and is directed by his wife and collaborator, writer-producer Jeannie Gaffigan. The trailer released today reveals just a few of the topics Gaffigan covers during his set, including responding to invitations with honesty (“Completely available, just not interested”), lying to children, and how his stand-up audiences’ response to jokes about his weight have, well, changed a bit over the years. Quality Time marks Gaffigan’s seventh special overall, following last year’s Noble Ape released by Comedy Dynamics. Check out the trailer above, then watch the rest when Quality Time heads to Amazon on Friday, August 16.
