Brought up in a large Catholic family, comic Jim Gaffigan lives in a small Manhattan apartment with his wife and their five kids. Sample passage: "Because I have children, I wash my hands.... It begins when you become a parent. You wash your hands to protect your precious newborn from germs; then you wash your hands to protect yourself because little kids are walking petri dishes of different viruses. The only thing weaker than a toddler's handshake is their immune system."
