Comedian Jim Gaffigan for his book, ‘Dad is Fat.’

CHICAGO – Just in time for Father’s Day, comedian Jim Gaffigan has written a new book about his adventures in Papa-hood, entitled “Dad is Fat.” The hilarious observational comic, known for his riffs on America’s food habits (“Hot Pockets”), takes on the rigors and rites of fatherhood as only he can.

HollywoodChicago.com recently interviewed Jim Gaffigan about his role as author. He recently made a couple appearances to promote the book, at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville and in Chicago. Photographer Joe Arce caught up with him during his appearance on May 10th, 2013, at the UP Comedy Club in Chicago, as Gaffigan demonstrated the many faces of being Dad.
