5Laugh Again Gaffigan  Sep 21, 2012 By Bruce Schafer "Hola Man"
This album is astounding. While Gaffigan's comedy has it's unique similarities, he is able to create original material in his distinctive style. Of course, you always get the food references, like Cinnabon and bacon, but here we get McDonalds, Subway and Domino's. Now we get family related issues, but always clean and clever.

5Ranks as one of the few comedians that don't have to be vulgar or foul - excellent!  Feb 03, 2014 By michael unthank
This one doesn't dissapoint. If you are a fan of Jim, this is well worth the money. Good material, PG rated I would guess. Its fun to listen/watch with our 15 and 17 year old, especially since nobody has to cringe with any foul language or lewd material.

3I wish I didn't feel this way...  Aug 29, 2012 By John. N
Having loved 2006's Beyond the Pale and 2009's King Baby I was more than eager to get Mr. Universe in my hands. Gaffigan's comedy is bright, insightful and totally nails the fast food nation we've become and - while it's not really a make or break thing for me - it's clean. While constant swearing in comedy specials doesn't turn me off (seriously, if swearing annoyed to that level I don't think I could live with my father, a man who censors nothing) I do appreciate the fact I can share a Gaffigan comedy special with next to anyone and not have to worry about crossing their personal line of decency.

Still, as hyped up as I was for Universe I have to admit I was kind of annoyed that it was released as a download/stream first. Yeah, we still got it on CD/DVD (and I'm sorry but the DVD was a bit over priced when the audio CD was extremely reasonable) but you know that this will probably happen again and dude, I like hard copies - the future be dammed. Unfortunately, Mr. Universe's problems don't end there and as harsh as it seems my critique is going to somewhat paint me in a negative light - but I going to say it regardless.

The special's problem starts right at the beginning with "4 Kids." Nothing makes or breaks a comedian and their special more than how they tackle the subject of kids - or more specifically the kids in their family. In last two specials Jim touched on this without being overbearing but here the exact opposite holds true. Still, it's not really Jim's fault as much as it is mine. Despite reading and loving children's books like The Diary of a Wimpy Kid (which are really ironic in how they point out the shallowness of our youth these days) and Big Nate (which is actually a lot better than Diary) I really... um... don't like children. Yeah, that's a pretty heavy admission but in my opinion the special gets a lot better once the subject of children is left behind.

However - as if it's any surprise - the special really hits it stride once Jim starts talking about food. "McDonald's" is simply a brilliant piece in how he connects the junk fast food chains pump out everyday to the pointless gossip about movie stars - either one you're talking about it's garbage in garbage out. Successful as that piece is I have to admit I am happy that Jim has added a lot of non-food based pieces this time around. Again, Jim's at his best when talking about food but then we don't want him to become one-dimensional, do we?

My self-created problems aside Mr. Universe is definitely worth picking up if your a fan of Gaffigan. That said, it doesn't really contain the high gloss of Beyond the Pale or King Baby but then I didn't really want another special that literally followed in their footsteps.
