Comedian Jim Gaffigan announced new dates for his “Barely Alive Tour,” including one at Shea’s Buffalo Theatre. He will perform in Buffalo ay 9:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 12. A presale begins at 10 a.m. Thursday (code: ALIVE) 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 Gaffigan’s best yet.

Gaffigan was also recently recognized for being the first comedian to reach 1 billion streams on Pandora. He 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 co-star with Jerry Seinfeld, Melissa McCarthy, James Marsden and Hugh Grant in Netflix’s “Unfrosted.”

On the silver screen, Gaffigan’s 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.

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 hit “Flight of the Concords” and a dramatic role on “Law & Order.”

Gaffigan regularly does humorous commentaries on “CBS Sunday Morning,” for which he has won three Emmys.

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