Jim Gaffigan adds seventh Nokia Theater date in NYC, talks about taking on Broadway, return of the McRib

Jim Gaffigan has added a seventh show to his December run of shows here in NYC at the Nokia Theater with Todd Glass opening — tickets went on sale at noon today — and last night, Gaffigan sat down with me to talk about some other news in his world.

As you may have heard, Gaffigan will be part of the spring 2011 Broadway revival of "That Championship Season," in a cast that also includes Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Chris Noth and Brian Cox. Gaffigan also jokes quite a bit about McDonald's in his new hour of stand-up, so I had to ask him about the return of the McRib. His wife, Jeannie (who's holding the camera), also weighs in with her review.

That's the set-up. Here's the pay-off. Roll the clip!
