DELRAY BEACH – The week between Christmas and New Years is often quiet from a comedy perspective, and this year is no different.
With the latest letter of the Greek alphabet hitting South Florida like some sort scalding COVID and orzo soup, it’s not a terrible idea to avoid enclosed spaces for a week or two.
What shows there are this week, however, are mammoth and it begins tonight with one of the biggest names in comedy.
Jim Gaffigan rumbles into the Seminole Hard Rock and Casino for two shows, one on Monday and another on Tuesday.
Gaffigan is a three-time Grammy nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, New York Times best-selling author, Emmy winner, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-seller.
His unique observations on life drive his family-friendly shows.
Both shows begin at 8 p.m. Tickets prices range from $51-$111.
