Actor, writer, producer, four-time Grammy-nominated comedian, two-time New York Times best-selling author, two-time Emmy top touring performer, and multi-Platinum-selling father of five Jim Gaffigan today announced his new “The Pale Tourist” arena and theater world tour. He will visit KeyBank Center in Buffalo at 8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020.
Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, Oct. 25. American Express card members can purchase tickets in select markets before the general public beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
2019 was Gaffigan’s biggest year to date with an astonishing eight films opening. Three of the films premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, including “Troop Zero” (co-starring Viola Davis, Allison Janney), “Them That Follow” (Olivia Coleman, Walton Goggins) and “Light From Light” (Marin Ireland) – with many festivalgoers calling Gaffigan the “King of Sundance.” He debuted in his first two leading roles in the comedy “Being Frank” and the thriller “American Dreamer,” which are now available for download. Additionally, “Troop Zero” will soon be released by Amazon Studios.
Also in 2019, Gaffigan recently released his unprecedented seventh stand-up special, “Quality Time,” with Amazon making history streaming it as the network’s first original comedy special.
Gaffigan is one of only 10 comedians in history to sell out the famed Madison Square Garden arena. He opened for Pope Francis in front of 1 million-plus people in Philadelphia, during the pope’s visit to the U.S. in 2016. Gaffigan regularly does humorous commentaries on “CBS Sunday” and last year he served as master of ceremony at The Al Smith Memorial dinner. Forbes recently named him one of the world’s highest grossing comedians, and streaming site Pandora announced Gaffigan as its most popular comic with over 647 million spins to date.
