Jim Gaffigan adds fourth Pabst show, all ticket sales to go to local food pantry

This morning, Jim Gaffigan, one of the biggest comedians of our time, announced he is adding a fourth show at The Pabst Theater, and 100 percent of ticket sales will be donated to Milwaukee's Riverwest Food Pantry. Fans can only purchase tickets through Riverwest Food Panty's Facebook page:

The fourth show is Friday, Dec. 30 at 10 p.m., with the doors opening at 9 p.m. Reserved seating tickets are $55, and they go on sale starting Wednesday, Oct. 12 at noon.

"I'll be doing a show at the Pabst Theater where all the proceeds will go to benefit the Riverwest Food Pantry. Which is a very unique place that not only with obtaining food but also provides life skills and mentoring," says Jim Gaffigan in his message to Milwaukee.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Jim Gaffigan's New Years Eve shows in Milwaukee. Gaffigan is a Grammy-nominated comedian, New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer and multi-platinum-selling father of five. He recently concluded the critically acclaimed, "The Jim Gaffigan Show," a two-season semi-fictitious television show on TV Land.

"This unbelievably generous act by Jim Gaffigan and The Pabst Theater will enable us to enhance our efforts to make food an entry point to changing lives," said Vincent Noth, Director of Riverwest Food Pantry.
