Jim Gaffigan on performing for the Pope: ‘It’s an opportunity to bomb in front of a million people… and the Pope’
Jim Gaffigan is performing for the Pope. That is actually happening and is not the setup to a joke. He’s performing at the Festival of Families which means he’ll try to do stand-up comedy in front of more than a million people… and the Pope. We asked Jim if he’d ever share a snack with the Pope, whether or not Pope Francis knows who he is, and why Saturday probably isn’t the right time to reinvent himself.
