"The Fun Tour" reflects the current niche of Gaffigan's material, surrounding tales of his life with a comedic boost to each story.  And yes, we're going to pregame with some Hot Pockets.

The entertainer has 10 comedy specials under his belt, and to those in attendance, prepare for your possible broadcast debut. According to a press release from the comedian's team, the shows will be filmed and recorded for his next special.
