Comedy Central Park celebrated its five year anniversary at SummerStage on June 29 with live performances from Jim Gaffigan, John Pinette and Sheng Wang.

How good was Jim Gaffigan’s set, you ask? I was able to really enjoy his set even as the “so true” lady, who apparently had one too many eight-dollar beers, began passionately making out with her boyfriend. That’s powerful comedy. Gaffigan spoke about his wife and newborn son, who began crying at a certain point in the show—he seemed to take issue with his dad’s notion that a person has to be incredibly drunk to enjoy Hot Pockets.

He riffed on New Yorkers. He discussed his gym in ways that I could never do justice in summarizing. Gaffigan’s set just seemed so effortless—like he was just saying whatever occurred to him at the time. [Comedy Central Insider]
