NEW YORK (AP) - Jeannie Gaffigan - wife and writing partner of standup comic Jim Gaffigan - made her first public appearance since having surgery to remove a serious brain tumor.

She was with her husband at Radio City Music Hall in New York for the premiere of Darren Aronofsky’s thriller “mother!”

Gaffigan said it was cool to be out, adding that she’s doing well - but not yet at 100 percent.
