Jim Jefferies is one of the most popular and respected comedians of his generation, entertaining audiences across the globe with his controversial, belief-challenging, and thought-provoking comedy. June 2017 marked the premiere of Jim’s eponymous Comedy Central series, The Jim Jefferies Show. As a new voice in late night, the weekly series features Jim traveling across the globe to tackle the top news stories and controversial issues of the day. In addition to the series, Jim has also heads up a weekly podcast series, The Jim Jefferies Show Podcast, co-hosted by Forrest Shaw. The podcast, from Comedy Central's Podcast Network, includes interviews and discussions with a variety of guests discussing current news and politics, as well as providing a more in-depth focus on the topics and opinions featured on the television series - with less filters.
Last summer, his international standup tour, The Unusual Punishment Tour, kicked off to rave reviews and has extended with new dates both nationally and internationally through 2018. He also released his fifth major stand up special in seven years, Freedumb. The special is Jim’s second to air on Netflix, and follows the huge success of Jim Jefferies: BARE, in which he delivered a now iconic routine on guns and gun control in the United States.
In addition, Jim 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 has also appeared in the films Killing Hasselhoff and Punching Henry.
Jim currently lives in Los Angeles.
