Comic has emergency appendix op

comedyTony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco… now Jim Gaffigan has left his appendix in Alaska.

The American stand-up yesterday underwent an emergency appendectomy at Anchorage Providence Hospital, where he is due to appear at the Alaska State Fair on Sunday.

He wrote on Instagram: ‘If you have plans to get emergency abdominal surgery I highly recommend Alaska. Sure it might be a long trip but I can think of no better place to leave my appendix.’

Gaffigan, 52, added that he still plans to make Sunday’s shows.
