AllMusic Review by

Depending on which side of the fence you sit on, standup comedian Jim Gaffigan's unique delivery is either one of the freshest Comedy Central has highlighted in a long time or one of the most annoying. The topics he covers on Doin' My Time are some of the funniest Comedy Central Records has committed to disc, while his trademark shift in vocal dynamics to another personality can get repetitive and irksome at times. Minor delivery flaw aside, Gaffigan continuously keeps the audience laughing with what appears to be great ease, especially when discussing his Midwestern upbringing. Overall, an impressive debut and finally some respect for a comedian who is long overdue for larger-scale recognition. Hopefully a follow-up showcasing more of his style isn't too far behind.
