Jim Gaffigan turned United States citizens into a bunch of singing fools. After his hilarious Beyond the Pale Comedy Central Special, scads of folks found themselves shamelessly singing, "Hot pocke-e-ets!" in a high-pitched, breathy voice. We say any comedian who can inspire people to forgo their pride in such a way is a real gem. Not to mention the guy has a long television career with frequent guest spots on David Letterman, Late Night with Conan OBrien, and roles on sitcoms like The Ellen Show, That '70s Show, and Ed. So youre not going to want to miss what this SPF 80-wearing man has up his sleeve during his performance at Comerica Theatre (formerly Dodge Theatre).
