A lot, apparently. The entire first episode swirls around his juggling act between his "Shiite Catholic" wife, his own Catholic faith, the popular culture, and mainstream media. And as Kimberly Winston of Religion News Service wrote, "Jokes about somebody's religious beliefs are often...duds."

Read Winston's full article HERE in which I talk about Gaffigan's "new kind of Catholicism" that allows him to be mainstream, funny, & friends with Chris Rock. Go figure.
