User reviews about the book
Dad Has 5 Kids in NYC
This is a great, light holiday read, when you are burned out from studying linguistics or neurobiology or whatever -- when your brain needs a vacation and a laugh.
A lot of this material will be familiar to fans, especially if you recently binge watched 6 of his comedy specials. That was our New Years Eve.
I'm not sure if being or having been a parent is a prerequisite for fully enjoying this book. Maybe being a former child is good enough. If you are considering being a parent, this will help you weighs the pros and cons.
Dad is fat
By Maine RN
I loved this book. It is funny and insightful. I'm a mom of 2 living in the country in Maine and so many of his thoughts on parenting rang true with me; even though he is raising 5 kids in NYC. Makes me feel good that we are all facing the same challenges and maybe our kids are normal..... Maybe.

Lol love him
Had nothing else going on so thought I'd read this
Ah, just kidding. Well sort of. Love this guy when I've seen him on TV and have a CD that I listen to his stand up while I'm in the car driving my two boys around all summer.
Interesting, funny and loving. Learned quite a bit, like I'm glad I stopped at two boys. No just kidding again. He is interesting and entertaining and love his crazy family life. Thought it was a very good read. Really enjoyed it and would recommend. Gunna pick up a copy for my sister who is also a fan and mom of twins. Think she will really enjoy.
The new 'What To Expect When You're Expecting'
Seriously. This is my new staple baby shower gift.
Do not read this book on an airplane
Or any other public setting. You will laugh uncontrollably and everyone will think you're nuts
By Libby Jacobs
I laughed through all of it. Any one with kids or who has spent a lot of time with kids will relate
This book hits in the gut, more than I could of imagined. I fell in love with this family. I laughed, cried and surprisingly related. You two seem to really love each other! There's not a lot of that anymore. The way you talk about your wife is amazing! I was very young when I had both of my boys. I made a permanent decision very young, now I no longer can have kids. After only having two I really regret not having more. Family is the most important fun thing in the world! Thank you Gaffigan family for opening your home for us to look into! Can't wait to hear when #6 is on the way.
Dad is Fat
I am thrilled to read that parenting is still executed with humor, sass, and love. Thank you Jeff Gaffigan.... I couldn't put it down. Great fun summer read.
I literally laughed out loud through every chapter. I love how insightful and hilarious he is about the stuff people say and think about other people with and without kids. I'll admit I'm slightly terrified to have children now... 4 years into marriage. "Why don't you have kids??" We don't believe in procreation. Or...we actually just like each other. Great book!
