One of the most successful stand-up comedians of all time, Jim Gaffigan just became the first comic to premiere a special with Amazon Prime Video. Quality Time, Gaffigan’s seventh hour-long special to date, finds the comedian getting back to basics like his weight and an inordinate number of horse jokes after dealing with his wife and writing partner Jeannie’s harrowing medical scare last year. In the episode, Jim opens up about that experience and explains why he’d rather make jokes about brain tumors than President Trump. He also weighs in on David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, Aziz Ansari, Louis C.K., Bill O’Reilly, the Pope and a lot more.
