Rabat – Jim Gaffigan, an American stand-up comedian, is making a stop in Morocco during his world tour. Gaffigan is set to perform his show “The Pale Tourist” in English at Cinema Megarama in Casablanca on Saturday, November 30.
Gaffigan was born in Illinois in 1966 and grew up in Indiana. He moved to New York City in 1990 to pursue a career in comedy, inspired by David Letterman.
After six years of periodically auditioning for “The Late Show with David Letterman,” Gaffigan’s comedy career took off after a well-received performance on his idol’s show.
Gaffigan’s comedy style is generally observational. His content often covers laziness, eating, and parenthood.
His one-hour stand-up special called “Mr. Universe” was nominated for a Grammy. He has various additional comedy specials and his material is regularly featured on Comedy Central, an American TV network.
In 2017, Forbes listed Gaffigan as the 7th highest-paid comedian in the world. He took home more than $30 million that year after his successful Netflix special, “Cinco.”
He is most famous for his Hot Pocket routine, first performed in 2005.
Morocco is the only African destination on Gaffigan’s “The Pale Tourist” international comedy tour. All other destinations are in Europe and the Americas.
Gaffigan will be performing all new material at his upcoming show in Casablanca. Tickets to the show on November 30 are now on sale for MAD 350.
