Watch out world, the Gaffigan family is coming for you.
Comedian Jim Gaffigan already uses his experience as a dad to five kids as fodder for his stand-up work and The Jim Gaffigan Show, but he has even bigger plans on the way.
“I have five because I’m secretly starting my own nationality,” he jokes.
Or, Gaffigan says, he keeps adding to his brood to make himself a better person.
“I used to have this joke that each of kids has made me a more decent person and a better person, and based on that, all I would need is 34 more to be a decent guy,” Gaffigan, 50, says. “But I think there’s a patience you learn. Parenting — I don’t want to say it’s a cure for narcissism, but you can’t really be that obsessed with your self-interest when somebody’s screaming at night.”
