James Christopher Gaffigan (born July 7, 1966 in Chesterton, Indiana) is an American stand-up comic and an actor. His comedy routines are known for being deadpan, and often include humorous, high-pitched voices, such as that of a supposed audience member commenting on his performance. His performances are also known to commonly include his "dumb-idea guy" gags, during which he does a stereotypical redneck voice, declaring "Hey, I got an idea. How about...?", and going on to expand on the idea. For example, when talking about Hot Pockets, "Hey, I got an idea. How about we fill a pop tart with nasty meat." Gaffigan is also known for various routines relating to being lazy and eating food, especially famous bits regarding Hot Pockets and bacon.
