Jim Gaffigan is quite pale, and hes aware that hes quite pale. But the pasty poster boy of white-on-white comedy hasnt become a ubiquitous face on TV by just laughing at his unusual whiteness. His genius comes through the lens of a comedic microscope that breaks down lifes truly important issues. Like Plato, he digests high concepts bacon, camping, hot sauce into relatable ideas. Heres an example: You ever notice people that are really into hot sauce are always challenging you? Hey why dont you get the super-hot fire-engine sauce? Uh, because I dont feel like superhot fire-engine diarrhea. Jim Gaffigan will drop the knowledge on diarrhea and related topics at 7 p.m. Sunday at Hard Rock Live (5747 Seminole Way in Hollywood). Tickets cost $35 to $65, and you can get them at ticketmaster.com or by calling 954-327-ROCK.
