12. Jim Gaffigan: King Baby

This special is a recent addition to Netflix as it completed the four specials by America’s foremost bacon enthusiast and hot pocket critic. Jim Gaffigan’s King Baby special was the 2008 follow-up to his 2005 special Beyond the Pale that launched his star into orbit.

Gaffigan filmed this special in Austin and put on a show for the crowd, with a heavy dose of bacon jokes that are sure to make you laugh and sure to make you hungry for some too. He even attributes some of the success of actor Kevin Bacon to his last name and has a believes the key to time travel involves bacon bits. He may be on to something there too.

He also jokes about bowling, which is either a sport or a leisure activity you do with your friends when you have nothing else to do. I died when he jokes about bowling teams having bowling coaches. “This time Timmy, I want you to knock down all the pins.” Bold strategy!
