How to stream ‘Jim Gaffigan: Quality Time’ online

The second Jim Gaffigan’s first special premiered on Comedy Central 12 years ago, audiences delighted to his daring takedowns of mundane things like Cinnabons, fast food, Hot Pockets–yeah, it was mostly food-based. I defy anyone not to roll on the floor laughing when watching though. Where other comedians take on big subjects like relationships, politics, race, and sex, Gaffigan is at home with the mundane, whether it’s talking about regional food crazes, or how depressing it is to watch a Subway sandwich get made. 

Amazon’s first-ever foray into the live-standup special will also be Gaffigan’s seventh special to date. Jim Gaffigan: Quality Time is just that: 72 minutes of all-new material. Among the topics Gaffigan will spin humor from includes running the New York Marathon, replying to unwanted invitations, lying to his kids about ice cream, and of course, his ever-increasing girth. Sure, it’s food heavy again, but the man’s found a niche, and it still hasn’t gone stale.
