Publisher's Summary

On this extra special episode of Hold On, host Eugene Mirman brings esteemed comedian Jim Gaffigan into the studio to tell a live story on the spot. The story in question? The time Jim did stand-up comedy as an opening act for Pope Francis in Philadelphia, at an event attended by hundreds of thousands of people. Eugene inquisitively pauses Jim's tale in real time to find out how he landed the big gig, what it was like meeting the Pope, and why a joke about Santa Claus garnered such a strong reaction.
In each episode of Hold On, host and comedian Eugene Mirman (Bob’s Burgers, Flight of the Conchords) questions comics and performers to get the skinny behind the story. You can listen to and enjoy more episodes on Audible Channels.
