Jeannie Gaffigan’s Career
From a very young age, Jeannie loved the world of acting. In fact, her career started as a stage actress in a regional theater. She moved to New York after quitting her masters program to perform in sketch comedy groups and small theater companies.
Shen then started the not-for-profit theater company, Shakespeare on the Playground. The company’s aim is to help inner-city children with literacy and production skills.
Jeannie then explored her options and started to write and produce comedy with Jim Gaffigan, her future husband. She has since helped write five of Jim’s comedy specials, serving as director for his fifth.
She has worked as a comic writer in several shows, co-writing the animated TV series Pale Force, starring Jim Gaffigan and Conan O’Brien. Jeannie worked on this series with her brothers Patrick Noth, a composer, and Paul Noth, a cartoonist.
In 2013, Jeannie started working with her husband to develop the pilot of The Jim Gaffigan Show, which aired on TV Land. Jeannie co-wrote and was also the executive producer of the 22 episodes, and directed the season two finale. Last year, the couple decided not to continue with Season 3, in order to focus on their family.
Besides working as the executive producer and writer of the shows, Jeannie Gaffigan also made an appearance with her husband and their children in a commercial for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.
Jeannie has also received numerous awards, including a Christopher Award for the Season 1 episode of The Jim Gaffigan Show. Additionally, Jeannie also received the Eloquentia Perfecta Award for her work in television and media.
Jeannie Gaffigan’s Marriage and Kids
When Jeannie was focussing on Shakespeare on the Playground, she met Jim Gaffigan. As they became closer, Jim began volunteering with the company. While talking about her husband, Jeannie said, “He was one of the smartest and funniest people I’d ever met, I liked that we had the same work ethic. Also, he’s from a family of six kids, so there was a language that we understood right away. And he grew up on Lake Michigan, but he was on the Indiana side outside of Chicago.”
Their relationship soon evolved and they walked down the aisle in 2003. Jim and Jeannie Gaffigan both come from large families, so it is no surprise that they have five kids; two daughters and three sons.
