The following is a reprint of my November 2006 interview with Comedian/Actor Jim Gaffigan, who spoke with me for Savvy.com regarding his new television show at the time, “My Boys” on the TBS Network He would go on to appear in projects including “Flight of the Conchords,” “17 Again”, “The Daily Show,” “Portlandia,” “Chuck,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Chappaquiddick,” “Super Troopers 2,” “Bob’s Burgers,” and star in 23 episodes of his own 2015 TV series, “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” a comedy about a husband and wife trying to raise their five kids in a NYC two-bedroom apartment.
Jim Gaffigan – Just One of the Boys
Comedian/Actor Tells Savvy About His New Series on TBS, ‘My Boys’
You may recognize Jim Gaffigan from his roles in shows like “Ed,” “That ‘70s Show,” “The Ellen Show”, “Sex in the City,” and “Law & Order: SVU” among others, or maybe from his acting in such films as Broken Lizard’s Super Troopers and 13 Going on 30. As a stand-up comic, he’s had his own “Comedy Central Presents” special. And you never know when you’ll see one of his commercials for Sierra Mist on TV.
When I caught up with him, Gaffigan was preparing for the world to see him in the role of Andy Franklin, the brother of female sportswriter P.J. Franklin, lead character on the TBS show “My Boys“, which premiered Nov. 28, 2006.
