After the jump, Gaffigan interviews himself about how he named his 2008 tour.
I realize this tour name might cause some questions. So, in an effort to avoid looking like a lunatic, I decided to interview myself. I met myself in at a luxury hotel lobby bar in downtown Manhattan.
Me: Hi, Jim. Thanks for doing this interview.
Jim: Happy to do it, Jim. By the way, I’m a big fan or your acting and stand up.
Me: Thanks. How will this new tour be different from “Beyond the Pale”?
Jim: Well, this tour will be all new material and it is called “The Sexy Tour”.
Me: Is the new material Sexy?
Jim: No, no, no. I still deal with hard hitting issues like bacon, legal documents and bean bag chairs, but it is still a clean, all ages show. The only thing sexy about the show is me. I can’t help that part.
Me: No, you can’t. You are a balding, married guy with two kids, not normally what society considers sexy. Many will think you are being ironic with the tour name, The Sexy Tour.
Jim: Huh? That’s odd.
Me: I mean, what about your body, Jim?
Jim: Thank you. Yes, I do have a sexy body. Staying in shape is hard. Luckily, I don’t have to worry about that. I already have a gut. Women like guts. It means I’m brave. I can protect women.
Me: Good point. What is sexy?
Jim: Good question, Jim. It’s like you are reading my mind. What is sexy? Is it appearing half naked in a photo spread in Maxim? Well, if it’s picture of me. Yes, that is sexy.
Me: I agree. You are sexy Jim Gaffigan. How can I find out which cities you will be going to on The Sexy Tour and be notified of a special presale in late March?
Me: Wow, that is so awesome. How can I–
Waitress: Excuse me sir, some other patrons have been complaining about you talking to yourself rather loudly. Can you keep it down? (Waitress exits)
Me: What’s that crazy bitch’s problem?
Jim: It’s ok. My sexiness has that effect on some women.
