Tonight @ The Pabst Theater, 7 p.m.
Not since “Weird” Al Yankovich has a comedian mined more material out of food than Jim Gaffigan. On Gaffigan’s latest comedy album, King Baby, his seventh, 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 “Law & Order” and “Flight of the Conchords” and the movies 17 Again, Away We Go and The Slammin’ Salmon. The comedian performs tonight at the Pabst Theater in advance of his annual New Year’s Eve gig at the same venue.
