Dad Is Fat

Cover: 'Dad Is Fat'

Staff Review: "Dad Is Fat" by Jim Gaffigan


Looking for a very funny and entertaining read by a stand up comedian?  Then this is the book for you!  Part comedy, part memoir, Gaffigan chronicles his life as a husband and father of five children living in a two bedroom apartment in New York City.  This unique situation lends to some very funny parenting anecdotes and observations in a very clean and funny way.  The only caveat is that this book is really most funny to people who are already parents.  I really did laugh out loud while reading this book!

Audience: adults | Genre: nonfiction, humor, memoir
