If you know where the discontinuities are, plot multiple times with the
discontinuities as endpoints:

plot.gamma = function(xlim = c(-6, -1), ylim = c(-1,3), hline = NULL, n
= 1000) {
start <- floor(xlim[1]):floor(xlim[2])
end <- start + 1

start[1] <- xlim[1]
end[length(end)] <- xlim[2]

n <- round(n/length(start))

curve(gamma(x), from = start[1], to = end[1], ylim=ylim, n=n, xlim =
xlim)
for (i in seq_along(start)[-1])
curve(gamma(x), from = start[i], to = end[i], add = TRUE, n)
if( ! is.null(hline)) abline(h = hline, col = "green");
}

Euler = 0.57721566490153286060651209008240243079;
plot.gamma(hline = Euler)

If you don't know where the discontinuities are, it would be much
harder, because discontinuities can be hard to detect unless the jumps
are really big.
