Jim Jefferies

Entertaining audiences across the globe with his controversial, belief-challenging, and thought-provoking comedy, Jim Jefferies has earned the distinction of being one of his generation’s most respected comedians. His international standup tour, The Unusual Punishment Tour, kicked off last summer to rave reviews. Last summer also marked the release of his fifth major stand up special in seven years, Freedumb. The special is Jefferies’s second to air on Netflix and follows the huge success of Jim Jefferies: BARE. Jefferies created, wrote, produced, and starred in the critically acclaimed FX series, Legit, which ran for two seasons and has since gained a cult following. He is a regular guest on the late night circuit and has appeared in films such as Killing Hasselhoff and Punching Henry. A new voice in late night is heard in Jefferies’s very own series, The Jim Jefferies Show, which premiered on Comedy Central this summer. The weekly series features Jefferies traveling across the globe to tackle the week’s top stories and the controversial issues of the day.
