“When I perform in Salt Lake, even outside the fry sauce, there’s a communication there that is very much a conversation,” Gaffigan told the Deseret News in 2016. “I feel like from the beginning of the show, the conversation is on a great wavelength. It’s like everyone knows we’re going to have fun.”

While Gaffigan built a rep on food jokes, including a whole stand-up tour dedicated to food, he’s branched out into writing bestselling books and landing diverse acting roles. According to a press release, Gaffigan has roles in 10 films being released or starting production this year, including the recently released drama “Chappaquiddick.”
