Plot Synopsis

Inspired by Jim Gaffigan's real life, this half-hour single-camera comedy series explores one man's struggle to find a balance between fatherhood, stand-up comedy and an insatiable appetite. The series, executive produced by writing team Jim and Jeannie Gaffigan, also features Ashley Williams as Jim's off-beat Catholic wife, Jeannie, and the couple are joined by these characters: Jim's aggressively single comedian friend, Dave; Daniel, Jeannie's gay ex-boyfriend and confidante, who is also Jim's biggest critic; and their endearing priest, Father Nicholas. Throughout the season, there are also special celebrity cameos by Chris Rock, Steve Buscemi, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Lawrence O'Donnell, Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Dave Attell, Hannibal Buress, Macaulay Culkin, Janeane Garofalo among others.
