DAYTONA BEACH -- From co-starring with Ellen DeGeneres on her sitcom, "The Ellen Show," to appearances on "That 70s Show" and "Ed," stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan has appealed to a broad audience.

The actor and writer will be performing at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 12, at the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach.

His clever, quiet style has made him one of the top five most successful touring comedians in the country today and his CDs and DVDs have reached platinum sales.

Mr. Gaffigan has had an unprecedented number of appearances on late night's "Letterman" and "Conan." His writing and voice work on the animated series "Pale Force" for Conan led to nominations for both a Broadband Emmy and a Webby Award.

Mr. Gaffigan has had breakout guest appearances on many comedies and dramas ranging from HBO's cult hits "Flight of the Concords" and "Bored to Death" to dramatic roles in all three versions of "Law & Order."

In recent years, Mr. Gaffigan has also become a mainstay on the big screen with memorable roles in "Going the Distance", "Away We Go" and "It's Kind of a Funny Story."

Further broadening his career, Mr. Gaffigan starred in his first Broadway production, "That Championship Season."

Reserved tickets for his Peabody show Aug. 12 are $49.75 and $39.75 plus applicable fees and are available for purchase at the Peabody box office, Ticketmaster outlets at Walmart Supercenters, charge by phone at (800) 745-3000 and online at www.Ticketmaster.com.
