30. Jim Gaffigan: Cinco

Cinco is the fifth special from Jim Gaffigan, or as he calls it, he now has a special for each one of his kids. Hopefully, the stand-up specials keep coming even if the Gaffigan brood doesn’t grow in the future. Cinco was released in January of 2017 and joins Gaffigan’s four previous specials on Netflix, you can see the rest on this list too. If you loved his previous specials, you’re going to love this one too. It’s classic Gaffigan.

Part of what makes Gaffigan so funny and likable is because he feels like he’s one of the guys. He’s so relatable and personable. He jokes about things people talk about all the time, like food, TV and family. That’s something everyone gets and Gaffigan’s unique spin on life makes him one of the best comedians of the century.

I won’t spoil the jokes but my favorite bit from Cinco was his likening starting a new TV show to going out on a blind date. Watch it, enjoy and laugh until your sides hurt.
