Comedian Jim Gaffigan announced new dates for his 2023-24 “Barely Alive Tour.” The show will make its way to Shea's Buffalo Theatre on Feb. 10, 2024.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 6, with presale beginning 24 hours earlier (code: COMEDY) at sheas.org.

Gaffigan is a seven-time Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, two-time New York Times best-selling author, three-time Emmy-winning top-touring performer, and multi-Platinum-selling recording artist. He is known around the world for his unique brand of humor, which largely revolves around his observations on life.

Gaffigan is a top 10 comedian according to Forbes’ most recent comedy list and top 10 earning comedian in Pollstar’s 2022 list. He released his 10th comedy special, “Dark Pale,” this year on Amazon Prime Video, an unprecedented achievement for the comedian/actor. “Dark Pale” was met with critical fanfare, with The New York Times calling it, ‘his best yet.’ ”

In 2021, Gaffigan released his ninth special, “Comedy Monster,” on Netflix which was nominated for a Grammy Award. He was also recently awarded for being the first comedian to reach 1 billion streams on Pandora.

Gaffigan can currently be seen as the lead in the well-reviewed sci-fi dramedy, “Linoleum,” and stars as Mr. Smee in “Disney’s Peter Pan and Wendy,” opposite Jude Law and Yara Shahidi. He will also co-star alongside Jerry Seinfeld, Melissa McCarthy, James Marsden and Hugh Grant in Netflix’s “Unfrosted”; and co-stars in “Susie Searches,” which premiered at TIFF last year and in theaters this summer. Gaffigan joined the cast of HBO Max’s “Full Circle,” a limited series from Steve Soderbergh and Ed Solomon, which follows an investigation into a botched kidnapping connecting multiple characters and cultures in present day New York.

On the silver screen, his many credits include “Three Kings,” “Super Troopers” and “Chappaquiddick.” 2019 was Gaffigan’s biggest year to date with an astonishing eight films releasing, three which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, including “Troop Zero” with Viola Davis and Alison Janney; “Them That Follow”; and “Light From Light” – with many festivalgoers and press calling Gaffigan the “King of Sundance.” Gaffigan was also recently heard in Disney/Pixar’s animated film “Luca,” opposite Jacob Tremblay and Maya Rudolph.

Gaffigan also had two films recently in which he debuted as the lead: the comedic film “Being Frank,” and “American Dreamer,” a dark thriller that was the grand finale of 2019 for him and features him as a ride share driver who moonlights as a private driver for a drug dealer.

Gaffigan can be seen opposite Ethan Hawke in IFC Films “Tesla,” as well as opposite Josh Hartnett in Saban Films’ “Most Wanted.”

In addition to two seasons of the critically acclaimed semi-autobiographical “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” which he wrote and produced with his wife, Jeannie, Gaffigan has guest starred on many television comedies and dramas, ranging from “Portlandia” and “Bob’s Burgers” to the HBO cult hits “Flight of the Concords” and dramatic roles in “Law & Order.”

Gaffigan regularly does humorous commentaries on “CBS Sunday Morning,” for which he has won three Emmys. In 2018, he served as master of ceremony at The Al Smith Memorial dinner. In 2015, Gaffigan had the great honor of performing for Pope Francis and over 1 million festival attendees at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia.

Gaffigan and his wife currently live in Manhattan with their five loud and expensive children.
