Christian Funnyman Jim Gaffigan Lands Second Comedy Special
By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
Christian funnyman Jim Gaffigan’s second comedy special, JIM GAFFIGAN: THE PALE TOURIST will release on Amazon Prime on July 24, 2020.
Deadline reported, “The two-part stand-up special was filmed on location in Ontario, Canada and Barcelona, Spain, as part of Gaffigan’s The Pale Tourist worldwide tour in which he traveled the world — in each country meeting people, eating the food and learning a bit about the history.”
In the meantime, Gaffigan plans to continue his comedy tour throughout the summer.
Although Movieguide® has yet to see THE PALE TOURIST, we’re optimistic it will showcase Christian elements.
Gaffigan’s last Amazon comedy special, JIM GAFFIGAN: QUALITY TIME, highlighted aspects of his Christian faith.
According to Movieguide®’s review, “[QUALITY TIME has a] strong Christian, biblical worldview presented as Gaffigan discusses prayer, God’s judgment on Sin City, and a description of Jesus based on a DaVinci painting.”
Gaffigan’s wife, Jeannie is a comedian too and a cancer survivor. The two leaned on their faith and humor to get them through trying waters.
The Gaffigan’s are proud parents to five children and use Movieguide.org to know what’s best for their family. See the video below for Jim’s reasoning.
