Gaffigan, Garofalo Clowning Around Next Week

UntitledDaniel Maurer

Hey, look! “Gaffigan” is filming in the neighborhood next week. The pilot from “Rescue Me” creator Peter Tolan revolves around comedian Jim Gaffigan “as a happily married man and New York City father of five — as he is in real life,” according a flyer announcing the shoot on St. Marks Place, between First Avenue and Avenue A, Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Gaffigan is no stranger to the neighborhood: we spotted him ambling down First Avenue once. Others have seen him at Whole Foods Bowery, on Astor Place, and dropping into Bar 82. He digs Wechsler’s Currywurst. When the Post interviewed him last year, he had lived in a two-bedroom, five-story walk-up on the Bowery for six years. He named Crif Dogs, Tompkins Square Park, and the Bowery Hotel as some of his favorite spots.

“Taking your kid to Tompkins Square Park is hysterical, because you’re trying to explain to your 5-year-old why the heroin addict is sleeping on the bench in such a precise manner,” he told the Post. “My son will be like, ‘Why is that guy sleeping?’ And I’ll be like, ‘He was tired.’”

Gaffigan has also been known to drop into EastVille Comedy Club. Heads up: another big-name comic, Janeane Garofalo, will be doing sets there next Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and then again March 28 to 30.

Update | 4:08 p.m. Looks like “Gaffigan” is also filming on the Lower East Side on Tuesday. A flyer on Allen Street, between Rivington and Stanton Streets, requests that cars be moved by Monday at 8 p.m.
