When Jim Gaffigan acts surprised and a little caught off guard when someone recognizes him on the bustling streets of Chicago, he's not acting. His ability to keep it real, simple and un-Hollywood is what draws fans to his comedy and gives him an edge over other comedians. Gaffigan is among the top five touring comedians in the country in terms of ticket sales.
Why go: Gaffigan's got more to say about food (yes, he still loves him some McDonald's). His latest rant: kale propaganda.
Reconsider: You don't want to take sides in the McDonald's vs. kale debate.
7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at The Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St.; $39.75-$49.75; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
