Comedian Jim Gaffigan, who jokes about his five kids tormenting him and his wife Jeannie, got fresh material after his daughter allegedly injured a Queens man by socking him with a soccer ball.
James Kent was working on a TV commercial shoot featuring Gaffigan in 2016 when he was “severely” hurt by Gaffigan’s then 11-year-old, Marre Gaffigan, Kent claims.
He accused the funnyman’s daughter of booting a ball that clonked him on the noggin during the filming of an ad for Chrysler Pacifica in Montclair, N.J.
The kick left him injured and unable to work, Kent alleges in a suit filed in Queens Supreme Court on Sept. 17.
Neither Gaffigan nor director Martin Granger, who has helmed knee-slappers for a host of commercial clients, was keeping an eye on Marre, Kent charges in his complaint, which names the two men and production company Moxie Pictures.
He’s seeking unspecified damages.
