LOS ANGELES, CA – Comedy Dynamics announced today it will release Jim Gaffigan’s latest stand up album, Cinco, on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify and all digital audio retailers just in time for Father’s Day on June 13th, 2017. The CD version will include additional track commentary from Jim and his wife, Jeannie Gaffigan, who co-wrote, directed, and executive produced Cinco.
“I can’t think of a better Father’s Day gift than my album, Cinco. I sure hope my kids are thoughtful enough to get it for me,” said Jim Gaffigan.
Gaffigan recently announced his latest world arena tour Noble Ape, which includes shows in Paris, Halifax, Tel Aviv, Auckland, Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and more with tickets available at http://www.jimgaffigan.com/tour-dates.
In Cinco, Gaffigan explores why cable news anchors have to be so attractive, the pointlessness of hiking, and America’s fascination with pickup trucks. This is the fifth stand up special from Grammy nominated Gaffigan. His first four specials include Beyond the Pale -2006, King Baby -2009, Mr. Universe -2012 and Obsessed -2014. Obsessed premiered at #1 on iTunes which marked the fifth time Gaffigan reached the Top 25 Comedy category on iTunes. The album also earned a nomination for ‘Best Comedy Album of the Year’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
2017 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for Gaffigan, who will be seen in six feature films this year, including two dramas with IFC Films/Showtime’s Chuck (Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts) and Apex Entertainment’s Chappaquiddick (Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern, Kate Mara). He will also co-star in Bron Studio’s comedy Drunk Parents (Alec Baldwin, Salma Hayek), Weinstein’s animated comedy, The Guardian Brothers Brother (Meryl Steep, Nicole Kidman, Ed Norton), and will play the lead in Original Force Animation’s Duck Duck Goose (Carl Reiner, Stephen Fry) as well as Cold Iron Picture’s comedy, You Can Choose Your Family. Earlier this year, Gaffigan debuted his fifth stand up special on Netflix with Cinco. Netflix also acquired the rights to Gaffigan’s previous four specials in an unprecedented deal.
