Jim Gaffigan wanted to make an important announcement today about chili, so let’s hear it for Jim!

OK, so maybe it was about more than just a good bowl of chili. Turns out Gaffigan — who’s currently in production on the first season of The Jim Gaffigan Show for a summer premiere on both TV Land and Comedy Central — also plans a summer tour of his latest stand-up material.
