With Father’s Day coming up next Sunday, June 16, we’re sure everyone is scrambling around trying to find the perfect gift for dad. Well hey, scramble no more because Atlanta Music Guide has an awesome gift for dad and we’re giving it away!
Writer, actor, and popular stand-up comedian, Jim Gaffigan, best known for his keen observational humor, never imagined he would have his own kids. Though he grew up in a large Irish-Catholic family, Jim was satisfied with the nomadic, nocturnal life of a standup comedian, and was content to be “that weird uncle who lives in an apartment by himself in New York that everyone in the family speculates about.” But all that changed when he married and found out his wife, Jeannie “is someone who gets pregnant looking at babies.” Five kids later, the comedian whose riffs on everything from Hot Pockets to manatees and McDonald’s, have scored millions of hits on YouTube, started to tweet about the mistakes and victories of his life as a dad. Those tweets struck such a chord that he soon passed the million followers mark. But it turns out 140 characters are not enough to express all the joys and horrors of life with five kids, so he’s now sharing it all in his debut book, DAD IS FAT, a collection of fresh and hilarious observations of family life, written from his perspective as an unlikely father of five.
