Jim Gaffigan Net Worth: Jim Gaffigan is an American stand-up comedian, actor and author who has a net worth of $6 million dollars. Jim Gaffigan was born July 7, 1966 in Elgin, Illinois. He arrived in New York City in 1990 at the age of 24, officially relocating to work in advertising, but his real fascination with New York had a lot more to do with pursuing his dream of making people laugh as an actor and stand-up comic, a dream he would eventually realize through hard work and ample talent. He had no contacts or connections in the entertainment industry, but proved his comic merit and steadily climbed the ladder to stand-up success, eventually even landing an appearance on David Letterman's talk show the Late Show with David Letterman (1993). Letterman was so impressed by Gaffigan's first appearance that he handpicked him to develop a sitcom for the Letterman-owned production company World Wide Pants. His next successful venture was as a guest star on a list of hit shows including That '70s Show (1998), Sex and the City (1998), Third Watch (1999), Ed (2000) and Law & Order (1990). Gaffigan's humorous quips have earned him over 2 million Twitter followers and he was listed by Rolling Stone as one of the "25 funniest people on Twitter" in 2012. In 2013, his memoir Dad Is Fat was released and was on "The New York Times" Best Seller's list for 3 months, debuting at #5. The title of the book was derived from the first complete sentence his eldest son wrote on a dry-erase board at the age of four or five. "He showed it to me," Gaffigan recalled in an interview, "and I laughed and then I put him up for adoption." The book is a collection of essays dealing with the raising of his children, as well as memories from his own childhood. Gaffigan signed with Crown Publishing in June 2013 to write a second book of comic essays, Food: A Love Story, slated for release in 2014.
