Not since “Weird Al” Yankovic has a comedian mined more material out of food than Jim Gaffigan. On Gaffigan's seventh and most recent comedy album, 2009's King Baby, the slow-talking Indiana stand-up riffs on waffles, ribs, bologna, condiments and Dunkin' Donuts, and returns to one of his most fruitful muses: bacon. The album was part of a busy 2009 that saw Gaffigan expand his acting profile with appearances on the TV shows “Law & Order” and “Flight of the Conchords” and the movies 17 Again, Away We Go and The Slammin' Salmon. Last year saw him in supporting roles in the movies It's Kind of a Funny Story and Going the Distance. (The comedian appears Friday and Saturday this weekend, with a midnight countdown and balloon drop at his Dec. 31 10:30 p.m. performance.)
