Get to know your favorite residents, artists, athletes and comedians when they Check In at Wynn Las Vegas.
Jim Gaffigan’s reason for showing up to work every day at the magnificent Encore Theater taps into the core desires we can all relate to — a great meal, a stiff drink, and of course, the comfort of a robe from a five-star hotel.
“If you are engaged in wearing a robe, you are embracing luxury. I'll go home and my 17 year-old son will be wearing [my Wynn robe] because children don't understand boundaries. Children have ruined my life and that's why I come here to Wynn so that I can go to Sinatra, go to Delilah, drink alcohol and figure out a way to get paid for it,” he says.
The six-time Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, two-time New York Times best-selling author, three-time Emmy-winning top touring performer and multi-platinum-selling recording artist tells host Valerie Lee that Vegas is fun for him and he wants the audience to come back, so expect more than just jokes — he wants a relationship, not just a one night stand.
“With standup I get to explore my feelings surrounding different topics. The relationship I have with the audience is like a friendship. They understand my point of view. I want to make sure that my show appeals to someone who has kids, who doesn't have kids, who's not in a relationship … I want to appeal to everyone,” Gaffigan says.
