Mike met Jim Gaffigan in 1997 when he cold-called Jim’s landline. They went out for, of course, pizza and Jim gave him advice that Mike has not only used but also shares with others. The two comics discuss the insanity of charging large pizza prices for mediums size gourmet pies, deciding not to curse on stage, and what happens when a non-political comedian has had enough. It’s Jim Gaffigan like you’ve never heard him before. https://www.theimaginesociety.org/

Jim Gaffigan: The Wake-Up Call That Changed Everything
At Home With The Creative Coalition
Growing up in the shadow of five older siblings who were successful in business produced added pressure for Jim Gaffigan to follow in their footsteps. Ignoring the calling of his heart, he did what was expected of him, attended college and studied finance. But in the wake of his mother's death, he “felt like the line of thinking [he'd] been taught was broken.” In this episode, Jim explains how he made the shift from working for an advertising company to becoming a multi-award-winning actor and comedian. Jim Gaffigan is an American standup comedian, actor, writer and producer. His often-observational humor is frequently about fatherhood, laziness, and food. Considered to be a “clean” comic, he uses little profanity in his routines. Jim has had several successful comedy specials, including Mr. Universe, Obsessed, Cinco, and Quality Time, all of which have received Grammy nominations. He is the New York Times bestselling author of two books: a memoir, Dad Is Fat and Food: A Love Story. He and his wife, actress Jeannie Gaffigan, have collaborated extensively in various creative projects. Together, the couple have five children.
The Living Universe in Your Backyard - featuring Jim Gaffigan
Humans Growing Stuff
There’s a whole world in your backyard with multiple layers and symbiotic relationships. While we may take on the role of watering, pruning and planting, there are creatures and plants that have their own responsibilities and roles to play that are seen and unseen. Together they create an entire infrastructure and network. And while some are more helpful than others, ultimately it all works together to create a green oasis brimming with life. Host Mangesh Hattikudur dives into the delicate balance among the many living things with which we share our backyards. In this episode, Mango speaks with comedian, writer and actor Jim Gaffigan about observing all of these interdependent connections in our backyard. We also hear from Michelle Bertelsen, an ecologist at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center about the science of invasive species.
